Paul D. Stone
I am a second generation business person in the forest products industry. My father Gene Stone spent a lifetime selling hardwood plywood in the western United States. I grew up in Orange County California and lived there until 2009. I finished my 2 year degree at Fullerton College and graduated with high honors. At the same time, to put myself through college, I was working as a cabinet maker. I was pursuing a four year architecture degree when I started in the veneer business with a large corporation and a world leader in the international veneer market. I spent seven years in a sales capacity traveling the western United States. I was given an opportunity to manage their facility in Los Angeles for the next nine years. It allowed me multiple opportunities for growth none more important than traveling to Europe and South America procuring exotic veneer. After my 16 year tenure there I wanted a challenge and started a veneer business with two partners. We quickly grew the company but along the way lost some of our core values. In early 2010 I left that business to start the Veneer Source LLC to recapture those values I felt were so important.
