Selflessness and passion for helping others are two attributes that are central to Garrett’s core. Garrett Capobianco is a 51-year native of Scarsdale, NY, and has sought out ways to serve his community throughout his life. His commitment to service was instilled in him by his experiences in the Boy Scouts of America as a young adult and was further cultivated in his 11 years as a member of Scarsdale Volunteer Fire Company 1, an organization that he joined when he was 18 years old. Garrett would go on to serve as Volunteer Membership Chair from 1987-1992, increasing company membership to maximum capacity as permitted by the Charter. From 1991-1995, he was Volunteer Lieutenant and later promoted to Volunteer Captain, serving from 1995-1997. 
After completing his Bachelor of Business Administration, Banking and Finance from The Frank G. Zarb School of Business at Hofstra University in 1989, Garrett ventured into corporate banking as a loan officer for the Bank of New York Mortgage Company from 1990-1993, earning the title of Assistant Sales Manager in 1992 at just 26-years-old. Throughout his employment as a loan officer, Garrett continued to be invested in his commitment as a volunteer firefighter,  and although he experienced much success in his position at the Bank of New York Mortgage Company, he felt a deeper calling to public service. In 1997, Garrett graduated from the Westchester County Career Fire Chiefs Firefighters Academy Class 1-97 and became a career firefighter for The Village of Scarsdale– the very same town in which he grew up. He served on the letter committee as the Letter Chair & Corresponding Secretary from 1998-2003 for the Scarsdale Fire Department Local 1394 and as union secretary from 2001-2014. In 2014, Garrett was elected to a two-year term as union president by IAFF Local 1394. Throughout his 21-year career, he received many Line of Duty Commendations for his exceptional actions taken and dedication to public service.  
Garrett joined The Rotary International Club of Scarsdale, NY in 2015, and has been a dedicated member ever since. Following his retirement from career firefighting, he became President of the club for the 2020-2021 Rotary year. Charged with transitioning the club from in-person to virtual meetings, Garrett was greatly adaptive in his role and integral to the success of the club throughout the pandemic. In recognition of his service to the club and his community, Garrett was awarded the title of Paul Harris Fellow in 2021. He currently serves as President of the Scarsdale Rotary Foundation, a position which he has fulfilled since 2021.  He will take over as District Governor for District 7230 on 1 July 2025.
In addition to his commitment to Rotary, Garrett is a charter member of one of three Rotary International/Toastmasters International clubs in the world. As Sergeant at Arms since the Toastmasters International Goodwill Club’s inception in 2021, Garrett is responsible for opening bi-weekly meetings.
Garrett is a New York State Citizen Public Health Leader and a New York State Certified Emergency Medical Technician. NYS116438
Of all of the titles and positions he has dutifully fulfilled throughout his lifetime, Garrett assigns the highest priority and pride to his role as a single father to two children– Christian and Victoria.
