President's Message

It all began with one house. When my grandfather, Anthony Mantella, built his first home in Toronto in 1942, he knew he had the seeds for a burgeoning real estate development business: integrity, honesty, expertise, and a desire to expand.

And he passed on these qualities to his two sons, Paul and Frank, so that they too could take part in the success of the business. Within a few short years, my grandfather, father and uncle diversified their business to include vast commercial properties.

It’s that visionary focus on embracing change and investing in the future that has made Mantella Corporation what it is today.

In everything we do, we rely on the qualities that our family has firmly grounded in our business. We build relationships with our clients and partners that are based on a passionate vision for the future, a conscientious, hands-on focus on the present, and a proud and established foundation of more than 50 years in the business.

It’s one of the reasons why, in 2008, we diversified our assets to invest in strong, vibrant Internet software businesses in Ontario through Mantella Venture Partners. Technology and real estate development don’t normally go together. We know, however, that the transformative and game-changing power of technology, combined with our established excellence in real estate development across Ontario, will ensure the Mantella vision continues for future generations.

Our focus on the future also includes giving back to the communities that helped us grow. Through our volunteer efforts and funding of charities that support children, animals and healthcare, we hope to further expand Mantella’s vision for our business, our community, and our world.

We take great pride in the relationships we have built with our clients and partners over the years, and we look forward to continuing that tradition with new, exciting relationships in the years to come.

President and CEO
