Name: Matt Gonwa
Title: Retail Sales Consultant
How long have you been with Pella? 12 years
Tell us about your role at Pella. What is your job and what do you do?
“As a retail sales consultant, I go into homes of people looking to replace their current windows and doors. I listen to their needs and wants and come up with a solution that will solve the problems that they are currently experiencing. I am able to supply them with window and door units, installation, staining or painting, and any interior wood work, so that it is a complete turnkey project.”
What is your favorite part about working for Pella? Why?
“Being able to create very satisfied customers because of the great products and team that we have”
If a customer asked you why you chose to work for Pella, what would you say?
“I have to truly believe in the products that I am selling and Pella makes that easy for me. They really do make the best windows and doors on the market. Pella also has a wide variety of product offerings, so I am able to tailor each project to what the customer really wants in a window or door unit.”
Name a project that you have worked on that you are the most proud of?
“I am proud of every project that I work on! Entry door projects are my favorite though. Whether it is something fairly simple or something with a lot of decorative glass or vibrant colors, an entry door can really change the way a home looks.”
What do you like to do in your free time, especially during the summer months?
“I love to go fishing and spending time on the water. We go camping as many weekends as we can and also try to get up north to my parent’s cabin to spend time with family and friends”
Anything else you want to add that you’d like to share about yourself?
“I am happily married to my beautiful wife Sherry for almost 10 years and we have two handsome boys, Aiden (7) and Merrick (4). The family picture is us on a pirate ship cruise during a recent trip to Destin, Florida for spring break.”
