Here at WGS we pride ourselves on delivering our clients a hands-on, personal experience when it comes to selecting office furniture. While we spend so much of our time getting to know you in order to better meet your office needs, it leaves very little (if any) time for you to get to know us! So, it is with great pleasure that we announce a new monthly segment called Employee Spotlight! The goal of Employee Spotlight is to allow you a little insight into the minds of those working so hard behind the WGS brand. We start this week with our fearless leader and President, Mr. John Lemen.
