JAMES J. DEL SORDO
A Naples native. Being born and raised in Naples, FL. James saw an opportunity in the service industry. After graduating from Naples High in '03 James opened a concierge business, offering all types of services from real estate to car care. He always had a vision in starting a valet company so he decided to take the opportunity in working for Tony Marino.
In less than two years James earned the position as lead valet for Truluck’s. Learning everything there is to know in the business he took that knowledge and went on to open his own company, Valet 1 with his two partners, Bruno and Tyler. James continues to strive for the best. Always seeking and introducing new ways in handling clients and patrons.
A Naples Native, Tyler grew up very involved with the community. At the age of 17, he was first introduced to the service field and valet parking. Working under his industry mentor Tony Marino, Tyler developed his skills in all aspects of valet parking services. From managing valet attendants and site operations to meeting with new perspective clients, Tyler has dedicated over 10 years to advancing the valet parking industry.
Tyler further improved his knowledge and understanding of the industry and business with studies in management at FGCU, Later earning a degree in Finance. After seeing much growth and opportunity in the valet industry, Tyler along with his partners opened Valet 1 in hopes to lead valet parking into a new era.
Originally from Lima, Peru, Bruno’s family was fortunate enough to immigrant to Naples, FL in the early 90’s. His commitment to community paved the way for his profession, firefighter/ paramedic for a local department. He found success in many arenas before the creation of Valet 1. His upper level education was earned from the University of Central Florida and Florida Gulf Coast University on the path of Business Mgmt. Throughout this pursuit, the ground work for Valet 1 was being forged, he started his first business, and began working as a valet attendant under the then local industry leader. Countless lessons and 7 years later with the blessing of Tony Marino and the continued support of former managing partner of Truluck's(Naples) Rick Rinella, Valet 1 opened it doors for business. Valet 1's early success is widely accredited to intrinsic core values; integrity, hard work, commitment to community, service, and excellence. Fast forward to present date and you can find Tyler, James and Bruno continuing to grow organically, one employee, one relationship, one satisfied customer at a time. We look forward to one day serving you and yours.
