StoneTalk Episode 13 – Dave Paxton

by | Dec 30, 2014 | StoneTalk

I’ve know Dave Paxton of Paxton Countertops and Showers since we served on the board of the International Surface Fabricators Association together a few years ago. Dave’s an amazingly friendly guy, and I’ve personally learned a lot from him about how that enthusiasm and generosity translates into business success.

In this episode of StoneTalk, I was particularly struck by how he really loves the fabrication work in the shop… in addition to being a great salesman and leader for his team.
