"Passionate" is the word that best describes Cheryl Carpenter's feelings about design - and especially about Poggenpohl, the world's leading luxury brand of kitchens. Cheryl rejoined Poggenpohl in 2008 to open the Houston kitchen design studio as designer and studio manager. This completed an 18-year odyssey since working for the company as a designer in Hawaii, covering the Pacific Rim and Far East. In between, Cheryl became a decorative plumbing and hardware industry leader sought after by industry peers as a go-to consultant on new product design, showroom design and sales training. With client satisfaction always her priority, Cheryl coordinates each project's design, delivery and installation. This pursuit of customer service garnered Cheryl recognition by Poggenpohl for Best New Showroom in 2009, Top Sales in 2010, and Outstanding Installation Services in 2011.
Cheryl enjoys family life with her husband and three children ranging in age from middle school, to college, to already on their own. An ardent follower of the Houston Dynamo MLS soccer team, Cheryl also supports Houston's vibrant performing arts and museums. In addition, Cheryl mentors students of The Wolff Center for Entrepreneurship at the University of Houston, Bauer College of Business. An avid reader, Cheryl loves the adventure of traveling to new places with her family and will visit her ancestral home of Scotland this summer - Slainte mhath!
