Persons of Interest: Michelle Bravin & Matt Denning

 

“It feels just like yesterday,” but Michelle Bravin and Matt Denning have become an integral part of who we are today at KBM-Hogue for several years. Their energy, enthusiasm, vision and values helped craft who we are today–and who we are becoming. Matt and Michelle’s experience in commercial interiors from the “manufacturer” and “dealer-sides” continue to shape our commitment to our clients and their partners, as well as our brand-partners. We are proud of where we are today as a company and a team, of which both Michelle and Matt have been instrumental in shaping.

Congratulations on becoming KBM-Hogue’s new partners as you both become Principals, Michelle and Matt!

“I am very enthusiastic that Matt Denning & Michelle Bravin join me and Mark Dailey as partners at KBM-Hogue. Both Mark and I are excited about the energy Matt and Michelle bring–we look forward to developing our great legacy.”
