PROVIDENCE, R.I. February 1, 2018 – Edmund A. Restivo, Jr., Co-Founder and Managing Partner of Restivo Monacelli LLP, was elected to the Providence Preservation Society’s (PPS) Board of Trustees at their 2018 Annual Meeting, held on January 31, 2018.

Ed has been a pioneer of downtown Providence’s redevelopment since the 1980s. He founded Restivo Monacelli, an innovative tax, accounting and business advisory firm, over two decades ago and spearheaded the 2006 renovation and expansion of the firm’s headquarters at 36 Exchange Terrace, which is a historic building that formally served as the City’s train station.

In addition to his 40+ years of accounting and tax experience, Ed is a prominent business advisor, entrepreneur and investor in numerous real estate ventures, restaurants and construction projects. He leverages his deep knowledge, resources and extensive network of business relationships to advise clients on how to secure financing, raise equity and capital, and maximize tax credits for the development of historic properties. His own development projects have included the rehabilitation of the Merchants Bank Building in downtown Providence and the iconic Conrad Building into the city’s first downtown residential development.

Commenting on his appointment, Ed said: “Historic preservation and smart, strategic redevelopment have been a passion of mine for many years. I have experienced first-hand the preservation challenges we have in Providence, and I am proud to be elected to the PPS Board, along with the other esteemed Trustees and outstanding staff who are part of the solution and dedicated to preserving our city’s historic gems.”

One of the oldest citywide preservation societies in the country, PPS was founded in 1956, as Brown University was expanding toward Benefit Street and the historic yet dilapidated homes there were slated to be demolished. Since then, PPS has grown from that small neighborhood group to a multifaceted citywide preservation organization that provide a broad range of services that fulfill its mission to improve Providence by advocating for historic preservation and the enhancement of its unique character through thoughtful design and planning.

Restivo Monacelli has been a PPS Partner in Preservation for four years. The Partners in Preservation are an esteemed group of businesses and organizations, now counting 31 members, who share in PPS’s values and vision of a more vibrant city through preservation. They support PPS’s education and advocacy work as year-round corporate partners.
