"I am very pleased to announce our acquisition of the Mission Stone and Tile business," said Joe MacIsaac, president and CEO of Stone Source. "Not only do we expand our footprint and gain entry into the Nashville and Chattanooga markets, but we are pleased to have Mary Elizabeth Oropeza join us as a member of our design and procurement team, leading the expansion of our residential product portfolio nationwide. Mary Elizabeth has demonstrated success introducing her original product designs, and we believe all 11 Stone Source showrooms and our customers will benefit from her instinctive eye for design and experience in identifying design trends in the residential products space. In addition to the two Mission Stone and Tile showrooms, we are very excited about the platform Mission has established for online sales."
Max Lestz, regional manager for the Mid-Atlantic region will expand his role to lead the Nashville team. Oropeza will remain in the Nashville office and will work with Lestz to ensure a successful transition.
