Greg Bibens, General Manager

Greg Bibens is a born and raised Vermonter.  Having grown up in the family business, he spent much of his youth working in the lumber yard, at the cash register, or stocking the aisles at the Springfield location.  Upon graduating from high school, Greg pursued his passion of the theatre, attending the musical theatre program at the University of Michigan.  In 2003, he moved to NYC, leading the life of a struggling actor, which often led to waiting tables or bartending to survive in the Big Apple.  In doing so, he developed another passion, the hospitality industry, and decided to return to school to train as a chef at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.  After graduating he moved his way up in the business as a manager, general manager, and director of outlets at restaurants and hotels throughout Boston, NYC, and Chicago, leading successful teams through creative marketing, community outreach, and the development of various training programs.

Greg moved back to Vermont in 2017 to be closer to family.  He rejoined the family business in the summer of 2018 as Training & Marketing Coordinator for the company, and was promoted to General Manager of three of the northern stores in 2020, continuing his passion for hospitality, creative marketing, and training development as another family face at the helpful place.

Manager

Brian Thomas (bthomas@bibens.com)

Brian was raised in Pennsylvania, before moving to Vermont in 2018. He had never been to Vermont, so it was a new transition; but he has grown to call Vermont his home. He joined Ace hardware in 2021 as an Assistant Manager before being promoted to Manager in 2022. When he isn’t at work, he likes to play pinball, read, fish, and spend time with his husband. Brian has learned so much from Ace in the short time he has been with the company, and is looking forward to all the new learning to come!
