Vice President | Sales

My course of study was Economics and History with a minor in Graphic Design. I stumbled into the furniture industry after a 12 year career in financial printing. It might be an odd career path, but it celebrates my passion for learning, love of history, solid business acumen and appreciation for great design.

My role is to lead the sales team and outsource group as well as support the design and technical services team. As the account lead for major clients, I also get to explore new ways to add value to our clients through our comprehensive suite of offerings.

The only reason we are here is because of our customers. This drives our team’s focus on service and customer support at every touch point.

Strong foundations are key so I’m all about setting expectations, communicating responsibility and ensuring accountability. Without that solid foundation, you’re going to have to continuously rebuild!

When enjoying time away from work and meetings, I try to spend as much time with my family as possible. You can usually find me with a good book, gardening or playing golf.
