General Manager

Countertop Specialists

Cabinets, countertops, and fixtures for the commercial and residential industries. As the General Manager for Countertop Specialists my primary function was business development.  Through rigorous networking and researching emerging materials I help to establish Countertop Specialists as a premiere provider of eco-conscious materials. I represented the company to the residential, commercial, and the green building sectors through participation in events hosted by groups such as NARI, BIA, or the USGBC.  In my first year we replaced 10% of company revenues in emerging materials with a new and expanding customer base.

Other areas of responsibility included: payroll, marketing, and general accounting.
