Our Team

Say hello to some of the PFI crew


Anthony Tricomi

President and CEO

Since his first job sweeping up at a barber shop, Tony’s tireless work ethic has generated incredible results for PFI and our clients.  His favorite thing to do with his free time:  fearlessly trek to Five Below and Starbucks with his 6 grandkids. Tony continues as the leading example of what his father instilled in our company’s DNA: No one will ever outwork PFI Displays.


Michelle Wellert

Accountable Logisitics Manager

Michelle's roles at PFI are pivotal at helping ensure clients' success. From managing to auditing show services, and drop shipping retail displays across the country, her experience and careful attention to detail fuel the execution of the display and exhibit programs PFI develops for its clients.

She's another member of the CrossFit crew here at PFI; don't let her kind, courteous demeanor fool you though; she's a fierce competitor at the gym and on the tennis courts!


Vincent Tricomi

VP of Business Development

Vince was incredibly jealous of Jared’s man-bun, but he feels redeemed anytime he beats Jared at Crossfit.  Vince loves the creative process, even though his scribbles leave much to the imagination.

His real strength, though, lies in uncovering new strategies by connecting seemingly disparate threads. In the creative, custom design-build world where PFI competes, solutions need to overcome multiple challenges and create opportunies for clients' brands to grow.


Pam Yost

Account Manager

Pam's been an essential member of the sales team for over 20 years! She outworks us all and is resolutely upbeat!  She is the embodiment of PFI’s commitment to “radical attention to every detail.” Whether she's managing a project or walking an account through important trade show details, clients rest easy knowing Pam has it all handled.

She's also a proud, loving grandmother who really enjoys baking with her granddaughter.


Eric Ritz

Creative Director

Eric is always designing, whether it’s a part for one of his custom cars or creative ways to bring marketing programs to life.  His designs have been seen on tradeshow floors and in retail stores across the country. Not only is he a pro when it comes to brainstorming, marketing strategy and industrial design, but he can also advise a team on where to find the best tacos in town.


Melissa Tricomi

Customer Service Manager

Originally from Arizona, Melissa is not a fan of our Ohio winters, so she's happy to volunteer to help at trade shows in California, Las Vegas, and anywhere else sunny and warm.

Melissa's role also includes accounting, managing trade show logisitics, and project management.


Shane Lind

Retail Project Manager

Rolling out a successful retail display program requires insights into not just the manufacturing process, but also the various retail environments where our displays are put to work.

Shane's roll encompasses translating a creative display design first into a prototype as proof of concept, then into a production roll-out, and even to how to safely ship the display where it needs to go.

He's also our resident outdoor expert, an avid hunter, camper, softball coach, and more.


Jared Abston

Director of Business Development

Jared… he used to have a man bun… need we say more?  He’s overcome that initial misstep and transformed into the fresh young face of PFI and a tireless advocate for his clients.


Sandra Steinberg

Graphics Manager

Sandra's keen eye for detail is essential for bringing to life the large format graphics on the trade show side of our business. It's also pivotal for guaranteeting the highest quality and accuracy before we print graphics for a retail display production run.

She also creates art for our clients, translating their brand into messaging and visual images that will help them connect to their target audience.

Interestingly, Sandra learned her trade in the Air Force


Dave Bauman

Exhibit Project Manager

A seasoned veteran of the exhibit industry, Dave's expertise is bringing to life the creative designs we generate. And, it's not just about how to properly build a trade show booth. He factors in considerations that enable an efficient set up and dismantle on the show floor. With the "costs of exhibiting" continuing to rise, he plays an important role in helping to limit our clients' exposure to those costs.


Doug Mahr

Senior Exhibit Builder

An industry veteran, Doug is a leader in our shop, the go-to guy when it comes to the custom, hand-fabrication of the booths we design and build for our clients.

When he's not custom crafting exhibits or supervising a successful installation and dismantle at a show, Doug is a avid amateur HAM radio operator and vintage car buff
