Our Executive Team

Richard Mines
Principal

Richard started his career in furniture at William Doyle Galleries. In 1993, intrigued by the prospect of working within the design community, he entered the contract furniture industry at a Knoll dealership where he specialized in new business development. During his tenure there, Richard was part of a management buyout. 

In 2004, attracted to Herman Miller’s design concepts and heritage, Richard left the Knoll dealership and teamed up with Bob Blau.  Together they bought WB Wood New York from Herman Miller. Over the next few years they purchased Corporate Environments, and WB Wood New Jersey. This created one organization with branches in New York City and Basking Ridge, NJ. In 2009, Richard became sole owner of WB Wood and has since built up the organization to be one of the highest grossing Herman Miller Certified Network Dealers in the country.

Richard enjoys working closely with clients, design professionals and his WB Wood team members, all of whom benefit greatly from his insight and expertise in developing innovative strategies to successfully meet the challenges of each project. He is a member of CoreNet, UJA, LMCC, IIDA and IFMA.
