Happy Birthday to Gabrielle Salerno-Mayer!
Peter Salerno Inc. Celebrates Gabrielle’s Birthday
We like to occasionally take a moment on the official Peter Salerno Inc. blog to let you get a “little personal”. Following the business and professional exploits of the most award-winning North American design firm since 2000 is wonderful, but we also feel it’s important you get to know Peter Salerno and his team on a more personal level. (After all, if you’re going to trust someone with the design of your living space, you should trust him/her as a person as well!)
It’s with this sentiment that we take time out to wish a very happy birthday to Gabrielle, Peter Salerno’s daughter and the head of Customer Relations and Social Media Outreach for Peter Salerno Inc. Gabrielle is a shining light of positivity, happiness and knowledge, and is a major reason why Peter Salerno’s clients feel an instant sense of comfort when they arrive at the showroom.
While Gabrielle has been an official part of Peter Salerno Inc. since 2013, her memories in Salerno family workshops and design studios go back to her childhood. “I remember when my brother and I were kids, we would go to our grandfather’s shop (Salerno Kitchens), and sneak into the workshop,” Gabrielle recalled. “Obviously, kids weren’t allowed in there, so we would hide in giant armoires and cabinets and try not to be found. Sometimes we’d get caught and the workers would yell at us, but it was amazing to see how they would create everything. It was like being in Santa’s workshop.”
Gabrielle’s sense of family history is evident, and her love for her family shone through in a past blog interview on behalf of Peter Salerno Inc. “I know it means a lot to my grandfather that three generations of his family are in the same business,” Gabrielle explained. “I absolutely love when he comes in the office, and I can offer him a cup of coffee. His face lights up, and it’s like a really nice bonus for me. In that respect, it’s even more rewarding.”
We love you Gabrielle, and wish you the happiest of birthdays!
