Jim Galusha, Silverado Chairman, said, “We are extremely pleased that Eugene Bronson and his motorcoach company have agreed to join Silverado and help grow our combined operations in the western region of the United States. Our plans are to consolidate operations where possible, take advantage of best practices and efficiencies, and to extend Silverado’s proven operational model.”

“We are excited about the opportunity and challenges ahead,” said Michelangelo President and Owner Eugene Bronson. “Silverado is an employee-owned company – the ESOP is a great benefit and reward for our loyal employees. The combined companies provide breadth and depth in the California, Nevada, Arizona and Wyoming markets, allowing us to better serve all of our clients.”
