Hi, my name is Franco Pacific, and yes, my last name is just like the ocean. I was born in West Palm Beach, Florida, but grew up in New York City. I graduated from the Bronx High School of Science and SUNY Stony Brook. I loved the water growing up but also respected it. One of my first jobs was being a Lifeguard and Water Swimming Instructor for 10 years. I have worked everywhere from beaches, to pools, to camps. Since then, I have gained over 18 years of retail management experience with the likes of Target, Nike, and most recently Assurant.
I am happily married to my wife, Mariel Pacific, for 16 years and have 2 wonderful kids, Michael and Olivia. We participate in lot of church activities, especially since my wife is also the Director of Music for St. Ignatius R.C. Church. It’s a way of giving back to the community and helping others in need. Also, I coach my son’s PAL Football team during the fall. Go Tigers! It is great to help guide someone in reaching their potential. That’s part of the reason I joined Saf-T-Swim. I love helping people and if there is anything I can do to help, please do not hesitate to reach out.
