Moderno Porcelain Works San Diego Partner European Company

Our Team

Pete Sciarrino Jr.

Regional Director

Living life by the motto that “family is everything,” Pete Sciarrino Jr. is the son of a Sicilian immigrant who first came to the U.S. at 17 years old with nothing before opening his own company in 1978. By the age of 11, young Pete kept busy sweeping the floors of his parents’ shop, then started fabricating countertops at 13 years old. He did his first jobs for free to gain experience, and by 16, he was a full-time worker in the surfacing business. After crossing paths with Moderno CEO Roberto Contreras in 1998, Mr. Sciarrino was entrusted to bring Silestone to the Southern California market, a widespread territory covering not just San Diego but everywhere from Los Angeles to Palm Springs to the borders of Arizona and Mexico. Through blood, sweat, and tears, they rolled out 155 Home Depot stores, jumped from 100 employees to over 250 employees, and increased their annual revenue from $10 million to over $24 million. Having left his mark on the quartz and stone world, Mr. Sciarrino was drawn to the Moderno leadership team’s current mission and remains dedicated to now expanding the large-format porcelain industry. Making the most of his minimal free time, Mr. Sciarrino is known in the community as “Coach Pete” where he coaches every sport and imparts kids with the value of teamwork, urging them to “play for the name on the front of your shirt, not on the back.” He also loves golf, as well as spending time with his two sons and wife of over 20 years, Carmela.
