Operations Manager: Rob Lineberger

“Quality is the best business plan” is a phrase you might have heard before. Well, we want to highlight one of our team members whose very job is making sure quality products are leaving our store.

Say “Hello” to our Operations Manager, Rob Lineberger! If you have ever stopped by to browse or pick up an order, you may have seen him throughout the store. Hailing from New Wilmington, PA, Rob currently resides in Ellwood City with his husband, Kevin Rosa.

Rob is a man with many hats; as Operations Manager, he oversees store operations on many levels. Responsibilities include ordering and sorting apparel, checking that the apparel meets Venezie Sporting Goods‘ quality standards, and always being on the lookout for ways to make production more efficient. From time to time, he will even step up to the heat press to help make custom apparel when needed. Rob’s favorite part about working at the store is the creativity he is exposed to everyday and knowing every day is a chance to meet more members of the community and work on cool projects. He sees the pride that this town has and loves “working on all the different benefit tees – witnessing humanity at its best.”

Rob has several hobbies when not at the store, and you might be surprised doing what!

Searching out and collecting vintage items is my favorite pastime, specifically vinyl records 1960’s to now and Christmas decor from the 1940’s-1980’s. Nothing is better than Bing Crosby’s White Christmas playing on a vinyl while watching a Christmas tree blink in fourteen different spots.


Another fun fact about Rob is that he lived in Germany until he was four years old. After Germany, Rob and his family settled in the New Wilmington countryside in 1989.

We are glad he has found Ellwood City, and we love having him as part of our team!
