GREG MESSNER
Vice President

Greg is the face of the retail operation!

When did you join the company? Right out of college I worked in the accounting department at Sibley’s in downtown Rochester, then in 1985 I joined my dad and my brother Peter in the company. It was just the three of us, and we wore all the hats!

What is your role? I am responsible for the retail side of the business. I’m usually bringing in the latest fashion trends for flooring, or in the showroom helping customers find the perfect product. Every day is different!

What do you like about your work? I love the connections we make with people. We literally see generations of clients, and working with the same families over 25 years is very fulfilling. We get to help customers who are moving, or updating their homes, and each project makes people happy. We’re happy to be part of it, and it’s an honor knowing that my father is the one who started it.

Other interests? Through the years I’ve been active in the Chamber of Commerce, my parish council, and various other community organizations. As a company, we are participating in our third Design for a Different project (www.designforadifference.com). I strongly believe in giving back to the community, not just being a part of the community!
