Favorite thing about Fireclay Tile: We are a conscious company. We intentionally set out to do good, be the change and proudly walk the talk. Oh, and everyone is super nice :)
Annie Acheatel joined Fireclay in late 2016 as a Commercial Sales Coordinator and today leads the Sales and Client Support Department. Her responsibilities include managing the customer service team, shipping & logistics, and the installation support program.
As the daughter of an architect and an interior designer, Annie has always been immersed in design. She has built her professional career working in creative arts, interior design offices and real estate development firms. Annie holds a BA in Dance from UC Irvine and although she has officially hung up her dancing shoes, she still enjoys dancing every night in her living room with her husband & two young children.
Favorite thing about Fireclay Tile: Our creativity and our kindness.
I grew up in Morgan Hill, but have lived in Aromas for the last 5 years. I love being able to work in the great community that I live in! Prior to Fireclay, I went to college locally and worked for a cloud based bookkeeping firm. I also went to cosmetology school and did hair for the last 10 years. When I'm not at Fireclay, I love spending time with my husband and my corgi. We enjoy hiking, biking, and doing anything outdoors!
Favorite thing about Fireclay: I love the positive energy that I feel from the people I work with and the company as a whole. I love working for a company that believes in using business as a force for good and I'm proud to be a part of it.
