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.
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 8 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!
Maxmillion Fair - Stone Specialist - Retail Sales
I have been in the home improvement industry for 27 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.

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 4 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.

I have been in the sales & service industry for 22 years. Previous to the stone industry I owned and operated a refinishing and restoration company. The best part about working for HRSW is being a part of something greater...being able to offer our customers great service with endless product options. Having worked for another fabricator in the past, I can honestly say that HRSW is truly a cut above the rest. I am very happy to be a part of this impressive operation and to work around other awesome people. In my spare time, I enjoy going to sporting events, golfing, and spending time with my family.

Mark Grammatico - Stone Specialist - Retail Sales
I started working at HRSW in 2016 after retiring from the sheriff's department. My passion for helping people transitioned from one industry to the next. I love being able to help people transform their kitchen or bathroom into a piece of art through the beauty of stone countertops. What I love the most about HRSW is that there are so many options everyone's price range. We also have full slabs to view which is a game changer. In my free time I enjoy hunting, traveling and spending time with my friends and family.

I am currently going to Oakland University to obtain my bachelor’s degree in finance, but want to stay in this industry for as long as possible because I truly enjoy working in it. I love working at HRSW mainly because of our amazing staff. Everyone is extremely friendly, helpful, and welcomed me with open arms when I started. Some of my hobbies outside of work and school would include cooking, catching up with friends and family as much as possible. When I get some free time to myself, I love to catch up on new shows on Netflix.

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!
James Fleming - Commercial Sales Manager
I started working with stone in 1998. The evolution of new ways to use stone is one of the things that maintains my interest. The different applications and the unique projects that we are able to achieve with the advancements in materials and technology is remarkable. What I like the most about HRSW is that we are not afraid to challenge the limits of our capabilities and adapt to the ever changing world we live in. In my free time I enjoy participating in sports, hitting the gym, and watching movies.
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 - 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 - 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!
