Rich Vitiello General Manager, Kooline Plumbing; City of Maricopa Councilman

Rich Vitiello says working for Kooline Plumbing-Heating & Air is one of the best working experiences he has ever had.

Careful to balance time between his Council, family, and other duties, Vitiello also puts his money where his mouth is and is willing to get in the trenches. Overall, Kooline’s owners, Mohammed and Farzana Nazeem, have seen the business increase by 35%.

Kooline’s high-profile projects include the new Maricopa Animal Hospital, the Apex racing facility, and Exceptional Healthcare Hospital, Maricopa’s first hospital.


Kooline currently employs 25 people and looks to continue its growth both commercially and in residential services.

Vitiello is running for re-election in 2022.
