Vista Transportation Safety Consulting
Tony Verillo owns and operates Vista Transportation Safety Consulting, a private consulting firm dedicated to assisting the trucking and motor coach industries with navigating the often complicated and confusing maze of DOT safety regulations.
Before starting his own business, Verillo served as an inspector in the Connecticut Department of Motor Vehicles. During his 20-plus years in the agency, he worked in several different divisions, the bulk of which he was assigned to the Commercial Vehicle Safety Division, the law enforcement arm of the agency responsible for the application of state and federal laws pertaining to commercial motor vehicles, school buses, and all other forms of public transportation. He spent the last few years at the DMV in charge of the agency’s Special Investigations Unit, ultimately retiring from that position as a lieutenant in 2009.
Upon retirement from DMV, Verillo was employed by two major carriers including one with a fleet of more than 1,000 vehicles, where he held the position of compliance manager and later as the company’s fleet manager.
