Rabine Snow Pros has named Chris Palermo as the snow and ice removal general manager.
Rabine's pavement services have grown at an explosive rate landing Rabine on Crain's Fast 50 in three consecutive years. Rabine expects its snow and ice management business to grow at a similar pace and Palermo is a strategic piece of the plan, the company said in a release.
