Meet Our Team
Craig started Common Sense Office Furniture back in 1997 and is like a father to all of us. He prides himself on building warm relationships with customers, providing wonderful service, and having an amazing head of hair. Craig is always up for a game of golf – or client entertainment (have you seen the bar in our showroom?) Most importantly hiring the right people over the years has helped the business flourish and providing an excellent place to work is at the top of the list.
Sara joined the Common Sense family back in 2012 and maintains long-lasting relationships with our valued customers and vendors alike. As the operations team calls her “Mama Bear”, Sara takes pride in looking after her co-workers. She shares her time between our showroom and warehouse locations, always lending a helping hand.
Cheryl has worked with us at Common Sense for 4 years. She is our Accounts Receivable Guru. Cheryl takes great pride in good old-fashioned customer service. If you have ever spoken or worked with her, you will know it’s true. Cheryl strives daily to build strong, trusted relationships with our customers. We love having Cheryl as part of our team!
Stephanie has been apart of our Common Sense team since 2017 and has stayed busy ever since. Whether it‘s running the forklift, organizing the warehouse, or even designing our marketing materials, she is the definition of a multi-tasker. There isn’t much that Stephanie can‘t handle - trust us, her boys have tried! She is excited about her growth and future at Common Sense.
Julesa has been with Common Sense for over 1 ½ years. Being part of the receiving team has been a very interesting learning experience. She is always learning new things, whether it is a skill like operating a forklift or learning about the products we sell. Her family and friends mean the entire world to her and she couldn’t imagine what my life would be like if she didn’t have them in it. She is an avid gamer and chess player.
Carolyn is a member of the sales support team and brings over 15 years of contract furniture experience with her. She is a graduate of Wake Forest University where she was a member of the Women’s Golf Team, and she still likes to tee it up! Carolyn enjoys meeting new people, developing relationships and providing excellent customer service.
Heather joined Common Sense as an industry partner working with the Interior Design community. She is our Design Liason. She brings 20+ years of design expertise to our team. She is passionate about sustainability and making old things new through repurposing. Her favorite part of the design experience is working with people to create functional and living spaces. Heather’s personal life includes 2 teenage girls that she adores. She enjoys sewing, the beach, hiking, and working in her garden when not designing.
Almendra is our lead designer. She graduated in 2022 and has been with us since January 2022. Her favorite part of the design process is space planning. Her favorite food is lasagna with a little wine with it, or maybe a lot. She loves watching soccer, reading books, and painting. An interesting fact about Almendra is that her name means Almond!
Erick has over 15 years of experience in logistics management and is known as our household "nerd". He is an avid Street Fighter fan which has now turned into a love for martial arts. Erick was a former lead designer for a tower management company in Boca Raton before heading north for some cooler weather. Erick’s proudest accomplishment besides owning a four-legged child (Hermes), is having a hand in the design of the Philadelphia Eagles stadium!
Rich started with the company in 2015 and took command of the punch department and used furniture division. He enjoys interacting with the clients and vows that everyone leaves with a handshake, a smile on their face, and a great deal. As a member of a local pool league, Rich enjoys a competitive game of billiards. Afterward, win or lose he may not always be smiling but will always shake your hand.
Rest In Peace, Brandon. Words cannot express how much your CSOF family misses you.
