Meet Rocco Mazzarello

As a result of the Support Services Review, led by consultant John Yagielski, Wynantskill created a new position to supervise and support both Buildings and Grounds and Transportation Departments. 

This new position titled, Head of Buildings, Ground and Transportation, was targeted to a person with a vast knowledge and experience in school facilities and someone willing and capable of overseeing the transportation after some extensive training from our very own consultant, Mike Goyer. 

After many rounds of interviews and background checks, we are excited to have found the perfect person to join our team. 

Join me in welcoming Rocco Mazzarello to the Wynantskill UFSD as Head of Buildings, Grounds and Transportation. He comes to us with 30 years of experience in heavy highway construction and most recently, Rocco held the position of  the Assistant Director of Facilities for the Troy City School District.  

When asked to tell us a little bit about his interests outside of work, Rocco listed the following:

  • I enjoy hiking with my two German Shepherds Ike and Rosie
  • Favorite Football team – Los Angeles Rams
  • Favorite Baseball Team – Pittsburgh Pirates 
  • I like watching professional motorsports; Formula One racing and Motocross are my favorites
  • I love all kinds of Music 
  • I have a Glass 1/2 full positive mentality  
  • I enjoy working with other people to reach common goals
  • I am very approachable and willing to help and am thrilled to be at GD!

If you should have any questions or concerts, please feel free to reach out to Rocco at 518-283-4600 ex.127 or email him at
