He prides himself on building warm relationships with customers, providing wonderful service, and having an amazing head of hair.

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.

Nick Caswell
Sales Associate
Nick's been an essential part of our CSOF family since 2016. He started working summers in the warehouse, to Operations Manager, and now in sales; there's nothing he can't do. When he's not in the office, he loves working on his vehicles or playing with his two labs, Fiona and Frankie. Go Patriots!

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 Rodriguez
Receiving / Warehouse

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.

Matt McGee
Receiving / Warehouse
Matt's only been with CSOF for over a year however, don't let that timeframe fool you. He's an instrumental part of our warehouse team and always, no matter what, has an amazing attitude! Even though the warehouse environment can get a little tough, it'll never be tough enough to remove the smile from Matt's face.
Jaffy Francis
Receiving / Warehouse
Jaffy is a warehouse team member who can drive a forklift like no other! He's been with our CSOF family for over a year and has brought so much to our warehouse through organization, cleanliness, and support. He's one person who will always help, no matter the situation. If he's not at the warehouse, you'll find him gaming and enjoying some good meals his sister cooks!
Matt Delay
Sales Support
Matt's one of our employees that has worn many hats during his almost 6 years here at CSOF. From warehouse support to CAD files to IT work, he's one person who never slows down. Most times you'll find him joking and laughing about something, sometimes even himself! Out of work, he's all about his two boys, Matthew & Tyler, and loves sports. Go Birds!!
Cynthia Noyes

Cynthia truly enjoys working with Common Sense and supporting our sales teams that collaborate on behalf of clients for the best solutions for offices and a variety of industry environments of all sizes.

Valeria Torrealba
Valeria joined our Common Sense team a little over a year ago and has done huge things for our design team. This opportunity gives her the ability to apply her school knowledge into real-life working scenarios and see her creativity come to life. When she's not designing, you'll find her eating sushi and playing with her dog Luna all while listening to Taylor Swift, of course!
