Lou joined REA in November 2022 and has quickly become a key facet of the company’s operational process. He started collecting cards at age nine when he would frequent flea markets around Somerset County, where he has been a lifelong resident, and continues to build his collection today. On nights and weekends, he runs L&L Baseball Cards, his own independent trading card buying and selling business that he launched with his son in 2017. Prior to joining REA, he spent more than 30 years in retail and restaurant management. He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Physical Education and Health from Kean University. In his spare time, he enjoys spending time with his wife and son and is a die-hard New York Giants, Mets and Alabama Crimson Tide fan.
