40 Under Forty: John T. Pitcavage

Erika Sidor
At the Grid District in Worcester are 40 Under Forty winners John T. Pitcavage, Michelle L. Cote, Esq., Jay Merrill and Brendan Aylward.

In the last five years, Pitcavage has grown solar installer Endless Energy from 10 to 50 employees while serving Massachusetts, New York, Connecticut, New Jersey and Pennsylvania. Before joining the energy services firm, he was chief financial officer of Gemstone Printing, which was acquired by Li & Fung of Hong Kong.

Pitcavage served two years in Guayaquil, Ecuador to help people meet physical and spiritual needs and volunteers at food bank Bishop's Storehouse in Worcester and in church-affiliated programs. He enjoys traveling with his wife, Valerie, and their three daughters, Sage, Sydney and Brooke.

What do you daydream about? Defying Earnshaw's Theorum.

Who gave you the best career advice? My dad said, "Don't ever do a mediocre job."

Favorite Central Mass. restaurant? Not Your Average Joe's. I could eat its complimentary focaccia bread and water and be happy, let alone the unique entrees.
