We wanted to share a bit about who we are, but this is only half the story. The people below are supported by teams of people working on the front lines across Western Canada. Our company is young and dynamic, and so are the individuals who work here. We take pride in what we do every day – many of us have lived in the buildings we have built or personally invested in the projects we take on. Bucci started as a family company, and while we have expanded past the last name we hold fast to the core values that have afforded us the reputation we have today, one that continues to attract like minded people to our company; homeowners and employees alike.
Fred started his career as a sales representative in the manufactured housing industry, eventually becoming branch manager and later president of the company overseeing 12 dealerships in Western Canada. Fred later incorporated Bucci Investments to acquire income producing assets and Bucci Developments to create multi-family housing across Western Canada and continues to oversee these companies to this day. Fred has served on the board of both UDI Pacific and UDI Canada, including two terms as President of each. In his spare time Fred enjoys flying his airplane and fishing on the west coast. Fred and his wife live in downtown Vancouver and maintain a close relationship with their sons, their son’s partners, and their grandchildren. He is also proud dad to Maggie May, the company’s official mascot and the fanciest poodle in Western Canada.
Mike’s career in real estate started in 2002 at CBRE’s Vancouver office where he eventually became a financial analyst, underwriting over $1 billion in commercial real estate transactions. In 2006 Mike joined his father, Fred, as a development manager and moved through the company to his position today as VP of the Bucci Group. Outside of work, Mike’s time is stretched thinly between coaching his son’s sports teams and his own passions of skiing, biking, boxing, and sailing. All this, and he somehow still finds time to pull off elaborate pranks around the office, including commissioning Peter to paint Troy as a Seinfeld character in 2015- a masterpiece affectionately known as ‘The Troymer’ [don’t worry, we got him back]. Mike lives in North Vancouver with his wife and three sons and enjoys cooking and travel.
