Steve Speet knows office furniture. Growing up in West Michigan, birthplace of Steelcase, Herman Miller, Haworth, Trendway and the like, Steve's family put the idea of re-using office furniture into action. Their basement boasted a bar made from a Steelcase reception desk and a bedroom that was partitioned using a panel system. Throughout the past 20+ years, Steve has held a vast array of positions with Steelcase and its family of companies, as well as their competitors. He's worked in nearly every aspect of the industry - from the factory to international field marketing to GM of a dealership - and is consulted as an expert on everything from contract furniture sustainability to product development and marketing. Steve currently works as director of marketing and product development for Conklin Office Furniture, a pioneer in the art of reusing, reconditioning and remanufacturing commercial furniture since 1981.
