Michael’s Appliance Center, a family-owned home improvement center in Orange County, has added experienced associates, Bart Linder and Stella Seitz, to its team to better serve its customers.
Linder, of Warwick, NY, brings more than 25 years of experience in appliance installation, logistics, and transportation to his new role as Sales Associate. A former small business owner and long-time Orange County resident, he holds installation certifications from Miele, Wolf & Sub Zero, and Jenn Air.
“Bart’s experience as a general contractor installing appliances gives our sales staff an added level of expertise when dealing with built-in appliances,” says Andrew Guattery, General Manager at Michael’s Appliance Center. “With his first-hand knowledge of how these appliances get installed, we can help customers avoid issues a typical salesman may not be aware of.”
Seitz, of Middletown, NY, has been named Parts and Service Associate. She has an extensive 37-year background in the appliance parts and service business, including experience as a branch manager at the Sears Parts store in Middletown and Metro Factory Service in Dover, NJ.
“Stella’s arrival marks the beginning of a new era at Michael’s Appliance,” Guattery says. “Her experience will allow us to combine parts and service into a single, one-stop department for anything repair related. This means more timely and efficient support of our customers.”
