Office Environments' Leadership Team is dedicated to finding the right people, putting them in the right spots in the organization and creating an environment where employees can grow, prosper, provide for themselves and their families—and enjoy doing it!
Office Environments provides our clients with an Account Executive who is their dedicated point of contact. Responsible for the overall relationship management with our client partners, the Account Executive is responsible for understanding your business goals and presenting unique solutions to meet them. They strive to deliver outstanding client experiences and build long lasting partnerships.
Working hand in hand throughout the entire process of a project, the Account Executive becomes a can’t live without member of the client’s team. Acting as the liaison for the client, an Account Executive, with the assistance of the OE team, negotiates the best pricing, products and services for our clients. Overseeing projects from start to finish, the Account Executive directs an internal team on the best course of action for a client’s particular needs to provide a successful outcome for each project. They assess needs, provide sufficient resources (manufacturers, facility services, design support, project management, etc.) and execute the appropriate solutions to ensure budgets and timelines are met.
Office Environments provides each Account Executive with a Designer(s), who will work to fulfill the vision of the client's new space, including developing 2-D and 3-D drawings to help them visualize the design. Our Designers provide a variety of services, including space planning, design development, furniture inventory, product selection, 3-D presentations, architectural coordination, furniture and finish specifications, CAD-generated furniture install plans and project analysis and evaluation services. Once the client is pleased with the options presented, our Designers, in a team effort with their Account Executive, create product specifications and pricing to meet their budget.
Our Designers have a strong creative edge, but are able to focus on the fine details required to specify products. They can balance a multitude of projects and grow with technology changes. They thrive in a fast-paced environment and always look for ways to exceed our clients' expectations.

Each of our Account Executives is backed and supported by an internal Operations Team who provides installation, warranty and repair customer service, warehousing and asset management, furniture refurbishing and cleaning services.
