Fence is not really something most people think about unless they need to keep the neighbors out or the dogs in, but for almost 70 years, The Tiberti Fence Company has installed and maintained fences and gates for residential, commercial, and industrial customers. If you have been in Las Vegas for any amount of time you have probably seen one of their little yellow signs attached to the fences that run along the washes or installed around construction sites. As the largest full-service fence company in the state, Tiberti has a 75,000 square foot yard capable of holding enough material to accommodate any size project. They specialize in chain link and ornamental iron, but if it is a fence product, Tiberti can install it.
While Tiberti Fence is technically classified as a small business, it has never been a small company. The founder, J.A. Tiberti, came to the Las Vegas Valley in the 1940s to help build the Nellis Gunnery Range (now Nellis Air Force Base). Mr. Tiberti formed his own construction company, J.A. Tiberti Construction, in 1950 and then created The Tiberti Fence Company in 1955 after his entrepreneurial eye noticed an unmet need for fencing. The Tiberti family of companies literally helped build Las Vegas from the ground up. It has continued to be a family run business and four generations of Tibertis have helped maintain the tradition of excellence and customer care established by J.A.
With this kind of history, it may then be seen as a surprising move to have a non-family member run the day-to-day operations of what is arguably the most visible and well-known company in the Tiberti Group. What may be even more surprising is that they chose a woman to step into this leadership position. Change is inevitable and in order to survive and grow, it must be embraced.
Enter Monica Welch! She was promoted to Director of Operations on July 1st, 2022, after several years serving in different positions throughout The Tiberti Fence Company. Monica brings an extensive knowledge of economics and accounting from her twenty-year background in the banking industry. She also has over twenty years of experience in the Las Vegas construction industry. Previously, the U.S. Department of Labor listed the following statistics; women make up 55% of the population and 47% of the workforce. Of the women in the workforce, 10% of them are in fields related to construction or the trades. This boils down to only about 1% of workers in the United States being women in construction. Though this is the 21s century, Monica Welch is still a pioneer in her field.
Monica spent a majority of her younger years in the New England area. Thus, making her an NFL Patriots and hence a Tom Brady fan for life! (Sorry Raiders!) She moved to Las Vegas in 1975 when her father was stationed at Nellis Air Force Base and the entire family relocated to Nevada. Mrs. Welch considers Las Vegas to be her hometown. When she first started driving, there were only two freeways; the I-15 and the 95 which ended at Decatur Blvd. She loved this city then and loves it even more now as it has expanded to become a world class destination with grand luxury hotels and championship winning professional sports teams. It is where she met and married her high school sweetheart over forty years ago and where together they raised two beautiful children. Monica’s family also includes two wonderful grandsons who will be among the next generation of Las Vegans.
Monica is not hindered by or trepidatious about leading a heritage company and local institution like Tiberti Fence. She is dedicated to continuing to uphold its traditional values of integrity and stability as well as building on its established legacy. Her vision for the company’s future includes expanding business into Northern Nevada and Southern Utah. Monica’s plans also include increasing the types of services the company offers.
Mrs. Welch knows that the success of Tiberti Fence lies with the employees and the teamwork of the field crew and office staff. She enjoys working with all key personnel from every aspect of a project to help ensure jobs are completed in a timely and successful manner. It is her belief in people that leads Monica to invest in employee education, new technology and equipment. She is proud to be with a company that values and respects their employees, and she is excited to be part of laying the foundation for the next 70 years.
