LINCOLN, R.I. - Greg Calderiso, an assistant vice president in the corporate information systems department at Amica Mutual Insurance Co., was recently named to the Providence Business News’ “40 Under Forty,” a list of young professionals who have experienced career success and performed work in the community.
“I am incredibly honored and humbled by this award – it’s a reflection of the many people who’ve given me opportunities and helped to shape who I am,” Calderiso said. “I’ve been fortunate to have a support system that has instilled and reinforced strong core values that I’ve applied to everything I do.”
Calderiso earned a bachelor’s degree from Johnson & Wales University and a master’s degree from Bryant University. He started at Amica in 2008 as an integration specialist in corporate information systems, and he was promoted to business applications assistant manager in 2012. Calderiso was named an information systems officer in 2013, before being promoted to assistant vice president in 2016.
A resident of Pawtucket, Rhode Island, Calderiso is also very involved in the community. He has led Amica’s participation in CS4RI, a local initiative that puts IT professionals in high school classrooms to teach computer science skills. Additionally, Calderiso is an adjunct professor at Bryant, teaching a course in corporate strategy. An avid supporter of the arts, he performs improvisational comedy and serves on the board of directors for The Sandra Feinstein-Gamm Theatre.
“Community involvement is something I’m extremely passionate about,” Calderiso said. “It’s rewarding to watch someone who didn’t believe in themselves grow confident and really embrace who they are. I’ve also been fortunate to stay involved in the artistic community. Being a part of The Gamm’s board of directors has made me realize how much goes into protecting the arts and helping them stay alive.”
Calderiso was honored with the other “40 Under Forty” winners in a ceremony on July 20 at Aldrich Mansion in Warwick.
