Education: High school graduate and the school of hard knocks
First job: I always wanted to be an architect. My very first job was doing drafting for the Village Roselle, which is where I lived. That got me started in the business.
Career: I started at a company called Pletka and Associates. I was there one year and they went bankrupt. I like to think I had nothing to do with it.
Boro then began working at Four Columns Ltd., the predecessor to FCL Builders.
I've worn every hat except accounting.
Boards: The Better Boys Foundation
What is the greatest business lesson you've learned?
Say what you do and do what you say.
What is the greatest business challenge you've ever faced, and how did you overcome it?
It was creating structure with the growth opportunities that came about. We grow with the growth of our clients.
Whom do you admire most in business and why?
Two of my best mentors and best friends would have to be Bobby Stovall and Mike Mullen (CEO of CenterPoint). Certainly, they have molded me and this company into what we are today. I'm still best friends with both of them. Both of them have done a terrific job with the people around them.
