Greg Bibens, General Manager

Greg Bibens is a born and raised Vermonter.  Having grown up in the family business, he spent much of his youth working in the lumber yard, at the cash register, or stocking the aisles at the Springfield location.  Upon graduating from high school, Greg pursued his passion of the theatre, attending the musical theatre program at the University of Michigan.  In 2003, he moved to NYC, leading the life of a struggling actor, which often led to waiting tables or bartending to survive in the Big Apple.  In doing so, he developed another passion, the hospitality industry, and decided to return to school to train as a chef at the Culinary Institute of America in Hyde Park, NY.  After graduating he moved his way up in the business as a manager, general manager, and director of outlets at restaurants and hotels throughout Boston, NYC, and Chicago, leading successful teams through creative marketing, community outreach, and the development of various training programs.

Greg moved back to Vermont in 2017 to be closer to family.  He rejoined the family business in the summer of 2018 as Training & Marketing Coordinator for the company, and was promoted to General Manager of three of the northern stores in 2020, continuing his passion for hospitality, creative marketing, and training development as another family face at the helpful place.


David Abell (dabell@bibens.com)

david abell, manager of Bibens Ace BurlingtonDavid Abell got his first taste of home repair with a summer spent stripping the family’s 1830s post and beam farm house down to open framing before putting it all back together again from foundation to roof. From there it was a natural progression to the local hardware and lumberyard where he spent four years helping customers and contractors with their own renovation projects.

In 2008, looking for a move to Burlington, VT, he joined Bibens Ace Essex where he helped setup the brand new store and helped make it the local destination for good customer service and home repair advice.  He has managed Bibens Ace Burlington since 2016, where he has been helping New North End residents with their own home projects.
