Bridging the Communication Gap
President and CEO Michael Rizzolo began Interpretek in 1993 with a vision of bridging the gap between the hearing and the Deaf communicators. He quickly earned a reputation for delivering outstanding quality services, high ethics, leadership, and dedication to the Deaf and hearing professional communities.
This respectability led to Interpretek becoming the largest and most recognized referral agency in the greater Rochester, NY region. Over time, we have grown to carry the same renown at a national level. Our expertise goes beyond understanding American Sign Language – our knowledge of Deaf culture makes certain that we make appropriate choices when working with our clients.Meet the Team
