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.

Roland Ostrout, manager of the Bibens Ace hardware store in South Burlington, VT

Roland Ostrout is a native Vermonter and grew up enjoying the outdoors being physically active as well as civic minded. While in school he worked various jobs from landscaping to janitorial to construction to automotive to retailing.  Roland later attended the University of Vermont and shortly after started a family in central Vermont.  He started his career in retailing with Ames Department stores in 1987 and joined Bibens Ace in 2002, while also a law enforcement officer in the town he resided for several years.

Bibens Ace South Burlington has seen many transitions in its format, and Roland has been part of that process since the beginning.  The store was the 3rd in opening for the Bibens family and the niche it has provided for the South Burlington community, both residentially and commercially, has been astoundingly positive.  Roland and the majority of the staff have been there for many years and can provide the necessary advice and assistance you’ll need to complete the task properly.
