“Not only does he have a proven ability to establish clear business plans, communicate company expectations and build high-performance teams, he also has a set of standards for creating truly unique customer experiences in the showroom environment.” – Major Avignon 

A Distinctive Approach

Chris is influential in creating working relationships within the design and building industries.  Most noteworthy, he set standards for producing truly unique customer experiences in the showroom environment.  He brings a distinctive approach to networking and events.

Over the years, Chris has managed multi-million-dollar locations and produced an increase in sales annually.  He relies on his extensive knowledge of the design/building industry and construction standards to help guide his teams.  In his previous role with Monark Premium Appliance, he served as General Manager in Southern California.  Prior to that, he was selected to open and serve as the Store Director for Pirch’s flagship showroom.  He also managed multiple locations for Monark’s sister company Standards of Excellence, both of which are Water, Inc. showroom partners.

” At its core, interior design is based on creating a living space that enhances health, safety and wellness, and Water, Inc. is a leading supplier of water filtration products that promote health and wellness.  The two are so complementary that when the opportunity to come on board presented itself, I couldn’t think of a better company to join and help grow.” – Chris Arnold
