I joined LaDiff as the Assistant Manager of the housewares department when the store was in Charlottesville. I was also the lighting buyer & closet system buyer. Two months into the job, I became a partner with Andy Thornton & Ivor Massey. At that time, our bookeeper gave notice... foolishly (?), I offered to take over that position too. I learned the business from the inside out and have remained intrinsically involved with every aspect from marketing to finance to sales management ever since. I like to say I've done everything around here except lift a sleeper sofa.
