Principal/President – Henriksen/Butler Nevada
Ian joined the Henriksen/Butler team in 2004 to establish our Las Vegas office. He not only manages the day-to-day activities of Las Vegas operations, but also participates in project-specific tasks with multiple clients. His energy, sales savvy and vision are maximized through his Executive Team membership as he provides ongoing oversight between H/B departments and showrooms.
After graduating with a Bachelor of Science degree from Northern Arizona University in 1996, Ian moved to Las Vegas for a sales position with a local contract furniture dealership. After just two years in sales, he was promoted to General Manager. During his tenure, the dealership grew over 400% before being sold. Ian brought this same drive and success to H/B and has grown sales in Las Vegas by an average of 60% a year since opening in January 2004.

H/B Services is led by Tony Coda. Prior to joining the firm in 2002, Tony worked for a contract furniture installation company that managed all H/B installations. When H/B decided to offer a broader range of services, Tony was a natural choice to lead all the installation, warranty and service capabilities H/B Services offers.

He also manages all H/B installation work for the Las Vegas market. A natural leader and problem solver, Tony works closely with sales, design and project management to insure all H/B delivery and installation projects are completed in a timely and efficient manner.

Since joining Henriksen/Butler in 1996 with a degree in Interior Design, Paige has worked with hundreds of customers on all sizes and phases of a project — from initial design concepts to final installation.

Paige believes leading with quality solutions and exceptional customer service is the key to our success in a very competitive industry. She enjoys working with a talented sales team that is dedicated to achieving this same goal.

Senior Vice President of Operations

He believes personal integrity, an intense work ethic and respect for our clients and colleagues are what is required to ensure a job well done. This interest and focus is magnified through his management of our Customer Satisfaction program, as well as HBi (Henriksen/Butler Improved). Patterned after Toyota Production System principles and in partnership with Herman Miller, HBi helps us achieve operational excellence by involving our people in solving problems and driving improvement.
