Paul is a 31-year veteran of Warden’s Office Products Center. Paul began his career in the retail store section of Warden’s in 1987 and eventually transitioned to space-planning/design in the office furniture department. Paul used his attention to detail – literally using a manual ¼” scale – to become self-sufficient in this rapidly developing customer need of the late 80’s/early 90’s – prior to any CAD – computer aided design – software programs becoming available. Today, Paul’s creative eye and precise attention to detail helps create office layouts in the most challenging of building/floor restrictions. Married for 34 years, Paul has 2 grown children, 1 grandchild and another grandchild due in mid-2019. In his personal time, Paul enjoys road trips with his wife Jenny, and spending time in the Sierra Nevada mountains.
Rebecca has been with Warden’s since 2002. She has a combined 25+ years in the office furniture industry and has a degree in Architectural Design. Rebecca works with sales reps and customers to create the customers desired final result. “Creating designs in 2 and 3 dimensional drawings helps the customer see exactly what we are proposing to the customer.” Detailed specification lists and assisting the customer with colors and finishes that tie the whole project together. In 2010, Rebecca accepted additional marketing responsibilities at Warden’s. From email blasts to the website, business cards to print media, Rebecca is responsible for design, integration, and timelines of the company marketing needs. Rebecca is married with 2 children and in her free time she loves to spend time outdoors with her family and 2 dogs.
