Mike found himself in a very unique position to gain market share as a new builder when he was asked to assume a handful of projects from clients who had not been satisfied with the work of prior builders. Focusing on three main pillars of his business philosophy—transparency, integrity, and organization—he was able to turn these projects around and deliver to his clients beautifully crafted homes in which they now take pride.
Since that time, Mike has remained true to his business philosophy, steering the company through a period of monumental growth which has been recognized by The Tampa Bay Business Journal twice as being among Tampa Bay’s 50 fastest growing companies across all industries.
Michael credits his success to God, his family, his team at Trinity, and his clients. His father often told him while he was working in the family business, “You’ll never be any better than your client’s perception of you, and you’ll only ever be as good as your worst subcontractor.” These often-heard quotes help form the foundation of Trinity’s success.
When not at work, Mike enjoys spending time with his wife, Brittany, and his two children.
Michael Cocozza formed Trinity Construction & Design in 2010, after many years working in commercial construction, and later, in luxury home construction for some of the area’s most respected builders—including his own father.
Mike, who studied design at the University of Central Florida, grew up working on job sites here in Sarasota alongside his father and twin brother Jesse. The two brothers continually pushed one another to become better and more efficient carpenters. Their carpentry work for local builders over the years has been highlighted in numerous magazines and is the crown jewel of some of the area’s most notable luxury homes.
