Paul joined the startup team as an unpaid intern in 1990 after toasting chili with cheese for 4 welders on oven #1 in 45 seconds.
“As an experienced, boots-on-the-ground cook, It amazed me. In that short minute, I saw Stone Hearth Ovens evolve from a romantic conversation piece to a high production professional asset for chefs chasing sincerity and authenticity.”
For the next 3 years Paul worked inside sales, as office manager, shipping coordinator, casting and assembly; usually all before lunch. These days Paul still enjoys talking to new customers, helping them pick the right oven and lending advice on installation and operations.
