Meet Steve, the man behind the showroom
Steve’s over-arching responsibility as Showroom Manager is to keep the 17,00 square foot showroom in Elmira running smoothly. That entails a lot of footwork behind-the-scenes, like ensuring well-trained staff is in place, keeping a good variety of products and styles on the floor, and all the other day-to-day things that keep Chervin Furniture & Design humming.
Steve has been with Chervin for 12 years and started as Purchaser in the manufacturing plant in Hawkesville. After a year, an opportunity came up with Colonial Times – a clock company that Chervin took over in 2008. He’s still there part-time and about two years ago he started at Chervin Furniture & Design in Elmira when the Chervin group took over that location.
While Steve helps out on the showroom floor as needed, he doesn’t deal directly with customers as much as he’d like to. His role is more about making sure the best people and products are in place and Chervin is staying current with trends in the furniture industry. That’s important in helping customers find exactly what they want. Steve feels blessed that Chervin has excellent sales, design, and delivery staff.
