“ROI is an amazing place to work,” he said. “It’s definitely a family-friendly environment with capabilities that can meet any needs. I think that’s a great combination of the ‘be big, act small’ type of mentality where every customer gets that personal touch and customization to ensure we meet their needs. I am extremely proud to work for a woman-owned business as well. Everyone on the team is so collaborative and supportive of each other. Rieke Office Interiors is a place where I feel I can do my best work, excel and bring a great deal of value to the company to help it grow for years to come.”

His background includes retail management positions working for Best Buy and Target learning about roles in sales, human resources, logistics, inventory, merchandising, operations and personal development.
