Maxmillion Fair

Maxmillion Fair - Stone Specialist - Retail Sales

I have been in the home improvement industry for 30 years, I have covered pretty much everything short of tearing a home down and rebuilding it. I have been with HRSW for the past 8 years. I have watched and participated in the amazing growth our company has experienced during that period of time, helping thousands of customers dreams come true. When I am not at work helping customers, I enjoy golfing. I have won the club championship in my league 3 out of the last 4 years. I also like attending meetings and events as a member of the Sunrise Networking Group. Please come in and let me help you find the perfect color or material to fit your project. Peace.

Bill Campbell - Stone Specialist - Retail Sales

Before coming to HRSW I was in the restaurant business for 24 years. My love of people and helping them pointed me into the direction of home improvement. I have been in this general industry for about 7 years. I recently, over the past couple of years, honed in on stone specifically. I enjoy working at HRSW because of the family atmosphere and enormous amounts of materials we consistently stock and have to offer. In my free time I like to head up north to my place on the lake and relax. I also pride myself on being an automobile enthusiast. Come swing by the showroom and I’ll be happy to help you select the perfect material for you!

With 11 years in the kitchen & bath industry, I would consider this one of my main passions.

I have been a part of Hard Rock's cabinet design and countertop sales division for quite some time now and look forward to many more years to come. In my spare time, some of my hobbies include golfing and working on my car when I am not in the office, but I would consider designing kitchens my main hobby.

Tom Konen

Tom Konen - Premium Account Sales

My career in the stone industry started out here at HRSW in 2014. There is something very gratifying about helping people that have an idea of how they want to see their kitchen, or any project, turn into a reality. Being part of the process to see it come to fruition is so rewarding. This industry is a small community of people that live similar lives, and we are all more than happy to help each other. Whether it is in fabricating practices or dealing with the technology changes we are all here for one another! What I love most about HRSW is that it is a grass roots kind of company. It started with two, family focused, friends that grew through hard work and determination. That determination was and still is to exceed the customers experience. The owners continue to make changes to the community through their philanthropy efforts. In my free time I love to volunteer. I also love to spend time with my family and friends. Time is precious!

Lisa Storts - National Account Sales Manager

Most of my career in stone has been dedicated here to HRSW. I've been in the industry for 10 years and counting. I really enjoy walking through the warehouse to see the natural stone we stock here. Each week brings new beauty to our lives! These slabs truly turn our customers countertops into a work of art. I really like the dynamic here at HRSW. Every department works with each other to produce a premium product. Being a part of the growth and direction this company is going has been truly amazing. When I'm not at work, I love spending time with my daughter and family, running races, and socializing with my friends!

Before getting introduced to the stone industry a few years ago, I was a cosmetologist. I love to find the beauty in everything and share it with others. That is what drew me to Hard Rock Stone Works. It makes me happy helping people accomplish what they envision when designing their homes. The family friendly atmosphere between my co-workers and customers is just a plus to working at HRSW. In my free time I love to spend it with my family, cooking, planning fun events and by the water on our boat.

Although new to the stone industry, I have many years of customer service experience.

The best part about working at Hard Rock is how we all work as a team to satisfy our customer's wishes to produce beautiful projects.

Jason Richards

Jason Richards - Commercial Sales

I have been in the construction industry for 17+ years. I have been a part of the HRSW family for about 6 years and counting. What I love the most about working at HRSW is the way everyone is willing to help each other get the job done. Before moving over to commercial sales, I worked in our in-house template department. I enjoyed doing that, but I've found that I enjoy the challenge of commercial estimating more. Plus, I love that I now get to work for more hands-on with our customers. When I'm not at work you can find me out on the fairway golfing or out on the ice playing hockey!

Tom Metcalfe

Tom Metcalfe - Commercial Sales

I've been involved with commercial construction for 20 years and have been with HRSW for just over 3. This field is challenging, yet exciting and I've been a part of some very large commercial projects all over the country. With my position, I get to meet a diverse amount of people on any given day from architects to superintendents. Giving these people outstanding service is always my goal, as is the rest of the team here at HRSW. Providing, fabricating, and installing stone materials is a form of art. I truly believe we have the best artists around. In my free time, I enjoy photography and working on my classic car.

Jeff Taylor

Jeff Taylor - Commercial Sales

I am fairly new to the stone industry specifically. Prior to joining the HRSW team, I was a manufacturing engineer in the auto industry. After the plant was shut down, I decided to pursue an opportunity that was presented to me in the stone industry. What drew me to HRSW is the dedication all of my coworkers share. I am proud to be a part of a team that goes above and beyond to provide our customers with the highest quality of work in the industry. Being a US Navy veteran, dedication and comradery are strong qualities that are very important to me. A couple of fun facts about me are that I am a collector of WWII memorabilia, I love to cook, and try new cuisines!

Nick Virga

Nick Virga - Commercial Sales

I started in the stone industry back in 2017 as a measure technician. From there I transitioned into estimating for the commercial project world. What I love most about this job is the opportunity to build relationships outside of the workplace and the quality of work that is put into it. The best part about working for HRSW is my co-workers. It's easy to connect with people here and that motivates me to do right by my people! Some of my hobbies outside of work is finding a project to tackle around the house, going to the gym or long walks with my fiance and our dog, Prince.

Alyssa Homik

Alyssa Homik - Director of Sales

My career started here at HRSW fresh out of high school answering phones. I was going to college for design and I knew quickly I was already at the place I wanted to be. In my 10 years here I've pushed myself to learn everything possible about the stone business and I pride myself with that knowledge. What I love about HRSW is its relentless efforts to be the best in the business. Not a day goes by that we aren't working tirelessly to improve our machinery, process, and customer service. It sounds cheesy, but being at work all the time is honestly my guilty pleasure. When I'm not at work on Sundays you can find me exploring the best places in Metro Detroit to enjoy an amazing brunch!

Gary Swick

Gary Swick - Vice President of Sales

I have been in the stone industry since 2008. Prior to joining the HRSW team I worked in the gaming industry for 16 years. What really sparked my interest to switch career paths is just the product itself, specifically natural stone. It is extremely interesting how it is formed. I have been at HRSW for all of these years because of the camaraderie. We really work as a team to make every project as beautiful and functional as possible. In my free time I enjoy hanging by the pool with my wife, playing with my dogs and watching NASCAR with my son.
