meet our team

Janet Eckman, CFO/Co-Owner

​​Janet has over 30 years of experience in finance, helping organizations formulate and implement financial, business, and operational strategies. As an executive leader, she believes in building a company with a strong culture of respect, collaboration, and integrity.

She enjoys spending time with family and friends, doing outside activities, traveling, genealogy, and following college sports. 🏟️

Rachel Nelson, Sales and Marketing Strategist

Rachel brings over ten years of digital marketing and customer service experience to the 22nd Century Roofing team. She believes passion drives productivity and operates by that philosophy daily when connecting with new homeowners and our sales team or while creating and executing strategic marketing campaigns.

Outside of the office, Rachel is likely to be found at a Twins game ⚾ or snagging a spot at one of Minneapolis’ music 🎶 venues or breweries. 🍻

Will Lato, Senior Production Manager

With eight years of production experience in the roofing and construction industry, Will’s hard work pays off greatly each day while producing each project our teams work on and managing our production team.

“I love the transformational impact our services provide for our customers. I enjoy connecting with homeowners and being able to help renew the exterior of their homes,” he says when asked what he likes most about his work.

I like hiking 🥾 Minnesota State Parks with my wife during the summer and fishing. But, once winter hits, you will find him ice fishing 🎣 on one of the many lakes in the Twin Cities. He also has recent exciting news – he is a new dad! His son Theo 👶🏻 was born in November 2022. 

Tonya Licata, Project Coordinator

Tonya brings many years of manufacturing and construction account and project management experience to our production team – and she has also spent ten years of her career as an account specialist in the Aerospace and Defense industry. With her extensive and tailored industry experience, she has quickly become a great strength to our team.

Thankfully her organizational and communication skills are outstanding as she not only multi-tasks and works with various departments throughout each day – it’s what drives her to “get the job done” and done right.

When she isn’t working, Tonya loves anything related to the outdoors 🌳 and all aspects of football, from fantasy football to NFL, and watching her favorite player of all time – her son! Next time you have a minute with her, trade your best fantasy football tips. 🏈

Roshay Ciavarella, Exterior Remodeling Consultant

Roshay’s professional background includes seven years of sales experience and working as a railroad operations manager for 17 years after attending Minnesota State University, Mankato, from 2000-2004.

I most enjoy meeting new people and expertly assisting them with roofing, siding, gutter, or storm damage, whether necessary repairs or a completely new installation.

Roshay’s hobbies include playing disc golf 🥏 and poker 🎰 when he isn’t working.

Cheryl Rode, Accounting Specialist

Cheryl brings 31 years of business experience to our team and is mainly responsible for accounting tasks. She also really enjoys assisting the Production Manager. Her strong values around customer service, communication, job accuracy, proactiveness, organization, and time management are perfect for our company culture.

She is a Certified Professional Life Coach and enjoys using her coaching skills to host our “Mindful Friday” meetings as we strive for our team members to continue developing personally and professionally.

In her free time, she enjoys spending time with family, being outside in nature 🍃, learning various topics, and watching her son play D1 basketball 🏀 for Liberty University in Lynchburg, VA.
