Celebrating Twenty Years
An interview with Simone Mayer, founder and CEO.
1. What does celebrating 20 years of Front of the House® mean to you?
[SIMONE] 20 years comes with a range of positive emotions. I look back on the last two brilliant decades with pride, nostalgia, and excitement. We’ve accomplished so much in what many will think is a short amount of time. But even with what our industry and country have faced in the last two years, we still have so much momentum and enthusiasm, both internally and with our clients and partners, that I do feel the best is yet to come.
2. What are some of your favorite highlights and experiences?
[SIMONE] My favorite highlights and experiences in the last 20 years come specifically from coaching, mentoring and partnering with our incredible global team that has grown to almost 200 strong. Our team member retention is extremely high because we value and nourish diversity in all of its forms and work on a daily basis to keep our culture strong because our FOH® family and Family of Customers and Partners is the reason we all do what we do.
3. What’s in store for the next 20 years
[SIMONE] The last few years have been about strategic planning for massive growth globally. With our WBENC and NGLCC certifications, our global distribution centers, our wide network of showrooms, and our vast product lines, to this day, we still design and manufacture, we really do feel that we are on the precipice of something very exciting.
