Formed in 2003, Marilyn and Max have brought together a team of professionals whose sole purpose is to make fine furniture that is high quality both inside and out. Marilyn continues to carry the torch of a family who has been in the furniture business since 1962.
Maxwell (Max) Roberts, Principalmax@greshamhousefurniture.com
Max is the glue of the organization. He is affectionately referred to as “The Road Runner” by several of our suppliers. Max has a wealth of experience. From the retail perspective and more recently on the manufacturing side of things, Max has the answers. With over 50 years of experience he knows furniture and he always has a story to tell. Be sure to get him to yodel for you when you visit us.
Marilyn Roberts, Principalmarilyn@greshamhousefurniture.com
Everybody loves Marilyn! She is the energy of Gresham House. With a degree in Native Studies the leap to furniture was natural??!!! Marilyn is a study of contrasts. Don’t let her zany enthusiasm fool you; if there is one thing Marilyn knows it is furniture. Marilyn has worked in the retail side of the business which gives her the edge when it comes to customer service. Paired with her mentor, Max, they are an unstoppable duo.
Ramona Rahmer, In-House Salesramona@greshamhousefurniture.com
“The Shoe Queen” – 72 pairs and counting … Ramona joined us in August of 2006 to assist Marilyn in the showroom. We think that she has been a natural fit. Let’s just say we knew Ramona had a taste for style based on her fashion sense. We didn’t see her wear the same outfit twice for the first 3 months she worked here. Ramona is enthusiastic about design and genuinely wants to help.
Always with a smile and she means business. Cathy has lived in Spain and the USA. She loves to ski and did we mention golf? Don’t call after quitting time in the warm months, she will likely be teeing off. We depend on Cathy for her organization and decorum to keep us running smoothly. Everybody loves to hear from Cathy!
Bob Lesniak, Sales on the Roadrjlesniak@rogers.com
Servicing southwestern Ontario, Bob Lesniak (AKA “Legniak”) is a veteran in sales and is focused on his customer. Bob’s rolodex is impressive and he is always happy to hear from you.
Janet Cross, Sales on the Roadjlcross@1000island.net
Janet Cross – Janet covers the 613 area code. Janet has an energy all of her own. She brings a wealth of experience and has a diverse background in the design field. It’s all about the customer with her. Sidebar – sometimes referred to as Janet Angry!
We couldn’t function without our team of skilled professional pattern makers, seamstresses, upholsterers, cushion makers, springers and shippers; they all take care in each piece that goes through our facility. Each person plays an integral role in bringing your design to fruition - from start to finish they are the best!
