Scott O’Hara, Director for Corporate Markets
Originally from Pittsburg, PA, Scott moved to Atlanta in 2005, where he currently resides with his beautiful daughter, Bella. Scott has been involved in business operations and development for over 17 years, and has an MBA from Georgia State. In addition to running design appointments, Scott oversees all company owned locations across the country, and prides himself on being brand ambassador by living our company values each and every day. He really enjoys solving and eliminating the frustrations that our clients face with current kitchen, closet, or bathroom layouts. Most storage spaces generally lack functionality, organization, and accessibility, which can easily be solved during a design appointment.
Fun fact: Scott has five brothers and one sister, in which he is the oldest child.
