Dave Stimmel has been in the design business for 20 years, and the head of Stimmel Consulting Group in Blue Bell for the last nine. The Philadelphia-based designer is a regular recipient of Kitchen and Bath Business magazine's Kitchen of the Year award. As early as 16, he was working as a draftsman for a custom kitchen designer through a program at Cheltenham High School. And even then, his boss told him, "You are meant to do this." Loyalty is a very big thing for Stimmel. He employs the same team for all his installations. And while he has designed - and won awards for - kitchens ranging from $40,000 to way over $100,000, the common denominator is his own loyalty to his vision. "It's not about the budget," he says. "It's just about doing something great."
