Meet Our Owners

John Durante, Co-Founder

John Durante - President, Durante RentalsJohn started working full time for his father's company, Durante Equipment, when he was 16 years old. Working through senior year in High School, and continuing to work over 40 hours per week throughout college, John started at the bottom and held almost every position in the company at one point or another. When he graduated Iona College in 1996 with a Business Administration degree, he took over the management of Durante Equipment Corp. from his father. During the time he was managing the company he created a chain of command, doubled revenue and staff, quadrupled profits, and took it from a very successful mom-and-pop business into a small corporation. In June of 2000, on behalf of his parents, John sold Durante Equipment to United Rentals.

In 1998, John started Durante Equities, a real estate firm investing in and managing several million dollar's worth of commercial and residential properties in Westchester. In 2003, John became the youngest recipient of the esteemed Ellis Island Medal of Honor, a distinction he still holds till this day. The award criteria was a person living the life of an exemplary American, hard working, continually self-improving while promoting their ethnic heritage in America. In 2006 John was awarded Westchester County Business Council's 40 Under 40 award.

In 2007, John graduated Cum Laude from Pace Law School and was subsequently admitted to the bar in New York and Connecticut. John was a partner at the successful Scarsdale, NY law firm, Timins & Durante - a firm which John started with partner Dan Timins in 2007.

In 2009, John got together with his cousin, Anthony Durante, and fellow 40 under 40 winner Christopher Jones, and opened Durante Rentals in the Bronx, NY. Within a year, despite tough economic times, John and his partners were able to open up a second location in Mount Vernon, NY. In 2012 their third location was opened in Queens, NY and has since become their main hub in the NY Metro area. The fourth location was opened in early 2014 in Elmsford, NY. and the fifth more recently in Carmel, NY.  Due to the success of Durante Rentals, John removed himself from the law firm he helped create to focus all of his efforts on the rental company.

In 2010, Rental Equipment Register, a national magazine for the construction equipment industry, wrote a cover article on the successful startup of Durante Rentals during a time of great financial instability. Durante Rentals was listed on Inc. Magazine's Inc. 5000 list of fastest growing privately held companies in America for three straight years from 2013-2015 with three-year sales growth of 212%.

John is a member of the Board of Managers for the Trump Tower at City Center and is a member of the White Plains Planning Board. John is also President of the Board of Directors of The Circle of Life Camp, a not-for-profit camp for children with diabetes. In 2013 John joined the Board of the Westchester Municipal Planning Federation (WMPF).

"I believe that life is what you make of it. It is through hard work and dedication to your family, friends, coworkers, suppliers and customers that make you a better person. It is important for me to get up every day and be the best that I can be."
