Hard work and effort started early for Shane. “That first summer job, I think was 12 years old” remembers Shane. “I cleaned used restaurant equipment, and my Dad was never satisfied until it was shining. If anyone has ever cleaned an old fryer or oven, you either love that work or hate it!” Turns out he loved it. Shane was literally raised in his family's foodservice equipment business. “I worked every job in the building from cleanup, delivery, installation to sales as I got older. Every job taught me more about the industry and planted an idea. I loved that we could create masterful foodservice facilities built for operational need, and still use common sense to install on time and maintain our customers budgets.” A future was born, and Shane was a man on a mission. Today, Shane continues his passion and knows where he wants Maverick Healthcare Outfitters to go. “My first project on my own was designing and equipping a local Mom and Pop restaurant. It was done on a napkin for gosh sakes! Today as I write this, I am working on a roll out of six assisted living/memory care facilities for a national development company. I'm focused on bringing Maverick to the healthcare industry to fill a void that needs filling. Maverick Healthcare Outfitters is based on customer service and support first, and driven by a strong message about why. Why we do things the way we do…. and always, it ‘s for our customers.” “Family has always kept me centered, at home and at work. My wife is my best friend, we have outstanding kids, and with our rescue dogs, we’re just one big happy family.” Plain and simply, Shane represents. With a secret desire to actually run for an office one day, he puts it best like this. “I build long term relationships with my customers, my suppliers and my peers. I have their back at all times. That formula has worked well for us by helping to drive massive buying power for Maverick that in turn assists our customers to maintain their development budgets. Far as I am concerned, it's the only way to do this, and it starts with having your customers' back all the way through each and every project.” Families grow together through thick and thin. In 2013, industry veteran, kitchen design legend, friend and mentor, William McBride combined with Shane to create a focus solely on healthcare design/build. The down to earth duo set forth to build a team and client group that seeks out innovation and practicality in design, supply, installation and resupply. “It's hard work building a brand and a company that means what it says. You have to stick to your guns, as the cowboys say. I've learned to live every day with courage and do what has to be done. My Dad reminds me, you can never pretend challenges will go away….solve the problem and keep moving forward.” “With today's multi-unit operators the old ways just will not work, Maverick and our team are built around solving the needs of senior living development in today's environment while always planning for tomorrow's challenges.” It’s always just been a way of life with Shane.

His mother and father taught him and his siblings how to cook, passing it on from generation to generation. John is a complete “Foodie” and self-proclaimed Chef of his household. “Family comes first” has always been a Martino Tradition, and what is better than the entire family sitting down to a home cooked meal, discussing and sharing stories of the day. “With one of three remaining sons still living in the house, along with my lovely and successful wife LaDonna, we are cherishing the few years left before becoming ‘empty nesters’.” “After 18 very successful years in the foodservice industry, I could have gone to work for many different companies. I decided to join the Hangman/Maverick Team because they are a top notch organization that share the same values as myself. Family, hard work, building strong relationships, and doing whatever it takes to get the job done. American Values.
