“We are constantly monitoring our manufacturers for quality and production time. We also look to manufacturers that are family-owned, because we find there is a certain amount of pride, care and compassion that comes from businesses that have their name on the product.” – Shane Mutter, CEO and President of Doerr Furniture.
Doerr Furniture, a fourth generation, family operated residential furniture store serving the Gulf Coast for over 76 years, has announced that its Board of Directors elected Mr. Shane Mutter as President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of Doerr Furniture.
