As a community, we’d like to give you an opportunity to get to know our SOCO + The OC Mix family. So, we’re excited to announce that we will be highlighting team members from various showrooms, restaurants, and retailers each week in an effort to introduce you to all of the spectacular tenants at SOCO!
Our first tenant spotlight features Andrew Stoermer, a design consultant at C.S. Wo & Sons. Read below to learn more about his passion for what he does and why he loves South Coast Collection.
Name: Andrew Stoermer
Title: Design Consultant
Why do you love working at SOCO and/or what’s a favorite memory from your time working at the center? I love the variety of upscale home design showrooms and mix of other tenants. It’s a unique center. Favorite memory is the annual C.S. Wo pre-holiday party…feels like Hawaii!
How did you get into the design industry? I worked in print media sales and marketing for 25 years and gravitated towards the home design category of business. This gave me a ton of insight into the design world and helped bridge me over to retail.
Why are you passionate about what you do? I have always loved design and art. Beautiful furniture and interior design is an extension of it. I love working with people and building relationships and trust.
What is your favorite store/restaurant at SOCO (besides your own)? Besides C.S. Wo? I always enjoy Roche Bobois because of their very modern design elements. It’s not my taste but it’s a super cool showroom.
Is there anything you would like to say to the Costa Mesa community at large? SOCO is truly a destination. Come spend the day here. Shop, browse, have a bite (or drink) and get inspired!
