The thing that impressed me most about Minnechaug BNI is the vetting process. It’s like hiring a new employee. You want to make certain that they are the right fit for the group. We are here for the sole purpose of giving and getting qualified, warm referrals, not leads, and we want to make sure that everyone knows that going in. This is not a Chamber of Commerce group where anyone can join. It’s a very selective process to guarantee that everyone who joins is successful. I am thrilled with the success I have had since joining five years ago.

Vince Prestileo

President, T M Burgess Co

I am a current member of the Minnechaug BNI group that meets on Wednesday mornings. I have personally used the products and or services of many of the current and past members. The experience that I have had with each of the businesses has been nothing short of world class! In every case the product and or service has been provided with the highest level of integrity, professionally, on time, on budget, and with no surprises. I can’t tell you how valuable each and every member is when I recognize a friend or family member needs something and I can honestly say that I have someone that can help. Thank you for all you do!

Assistant Vice President, United Bank

About 3 years ago I was invited by my long time business insurance agent Vince Prestileo, to visit a business networking that he felt would be helpful to me and my business. I’m glad I went! I now have a great group business professionals that not only refer a lot of business to me, but they are really good friends too.
