Meet Our Team
Peter Messner, President
Peter Messner is President of Messner Flooring and started at the company in 1977 as his dad Ben Messner’s first employee. The early days at the B.J. Messner Co. allowed Peter to develop many skills such as forklift operation, rug deliveries, commercial estimating, and project management. In the mid 80’s Peter took over the operations and back-office functions. In 1987, he purchased the company after his father’s untimely death, and today he manages the commercial company and operations at both the retail stores. The skills that Peter developed in his early years are still called upon on a daily basis.
Lisa Mau, Business Manager
Lisa joined the Messner Flooring team in 2004, and handles everything from health plans to payroll. Lisa manages the office, pays bills, manages payroll, and handles additional HR responsibilities. Lisa helps the Messner Flooring team with health and life insurance, the IRA plan, and more. Lisa is proud to work for Messner Flooring. She says, “I’m glad we’re an ethical company, and that we put out a good product and do good work. I’m proud of our great reputation. And I enjoy helping our employees.”
Rick Morgan, Warehouse Manager
Rick is the reason your flooring is pre-inspected, and perfectly cut. Joining the Messner Flooring team in 2009, Rick manages all the inventory for both the commercial and retail sides of the business. When a customer orders flooring, it comes to Rick’s warehouse first and is checked out to make sure it’s correct and in perfect shape. His team also cuts all carpets to specific lengths for our installers right from the warehouse, making the installation of carpet more efficient for us and our customers. Rick enjoys being “quality control” and a bit of a traffic cop in the warehouse to make sure that quality and accuracy are on point.
Pat Dimonda, Commercial Project Manager
As Project Manager, Pat ensures quality, transparency, and safety. Pat joined Messner Flooring in 2013, but started in the industry in 1985, including working with Messner Flooring as an installer in the 90’s. Today, Pat is responsible for making sure Messner Flooring is completely prepared for each job. That means checking and managing conditions on-site, equipment, supplies, deliveries, working conditions and more. He ensures every detail is accounted for and considered before a job begins. Pat says, “Messner Flooring stands out above the rest with their integrity and manner of working with customers. Everyone takes pride in giving the customer what they expect and deserve. People here will take the extra time so that there are no surprises and no unanswered questions. They do whatever it takes, and stay honest and professional."
Jack Messner, Commercial Sales Representative
Family and community make the job great, for Jack Messner, who joined the Messner Flooring team in 2008 as an apprentice to a commercial salesman. Jack grew up in this business and remembers crawling on the mountains of carpet pads as a little kid. Now he works in commercial sales doing project management and commercial estimating. Jack enjoys his work because it’s an ever-evolving industry, with materials, installation, and more always improving.
Ted Messner, Commercial Sales Representative
Ted Messner has worked for Messner Flooring on and off since 2003 and became a full-time employee in 2013. Ted generally works with Messner Flooring’s long-term customers, including schools, commercial parks, and nursing homes. One client, an area nursing home, was Ted’s grandfather’s first client 50 years ago, which started our company! Many of our accounts are non-profits, and we are proud to support their missions. Ted enjoys working with long-term clients as it enables him to develop relationships over time. This brings greater understanding overall, and enables us to meet their needs as well as get to know them on a personal level.
John Barker, Sales, Service & Assessment
Jon started at the company in 1986 as an installer, and joined Messner Flooring full-time in 2008. In addition, his dad worked for Greg and Peter’s dad Ben Messner for 25 years! Messner doesn’t just “measure,” we assess. There’s a lot more to preparing to install a floor correctly than wielding a measuring tape. Jon earned his Master’s from CFI and uses that knowledge and expertise to make absolutely certain that everything has been anticipated for a new install. In addition, a big part of Jon’s job is going into homes and restretching carpet, fixing holes, and repairing seams on installations that other companies won’t stand by. Jon loves his job because every project is unique, every house has its own requirements and every day is different.
