Meet the team behind Beahm & Son Ltd.
Richard Beahm “Rick” is the heart of the business and has been moving us forward for over 30 years. Rick has been working with cabinets and remodeling since he was a kid, with no formal college education, he learned everything about design from practical experience. Years of learning what works and what doesn't has shaped him into the designer he is today.
“Design is about blending form and function, a room that functions perfectly can look beautiful and a room that looks beautiful can still be functional. Nothing is outside our capabilities.” When you come in to work with Rick, you are receiving years of experience and creativity which has been built on a solid foundation of understanding the entire construction process of a job.
Corey Battles joined Beahm & Son in 2014 as a design assistant and is the engineering brain behind all Beahm’s kitchen and bathroom projects. His education started with a Bachelor’s degree in Interior Design from Kent State University, as well as a semester studying design in Italy. Corey continued his education by working for a small custom cabinet shop in Ohio. His time there was invaluable, teaching him not only design and client interaction, but also the inner workings of cabinetry. He learned how cabinets go together, how they function, and most importantly, what doesn’t work.
As a design assistant, Corey handles all aspects of a project from site visits, to space planning and cabinet layout. He will pull together all the details of a project to create in-depth drawings for clients and the installers. All of this will help bring the project to life for the client and reinforce the details for the installers, making everything a little easier for everyone.
Sloane Brown and Rebecca Achezinski joined Beahm & Son in January of 2019. They both have a similar background having earned degrees in Interior Design, Sloane’s from Kent State University and Rebecca’s from Mercyhurst University. Sloane has also spent time abroad in Florence, Italy studying design. Not only sharing a similar education, Sloane and Rebecca have previously worked as a team before joining us here. Their experience includes working heavily in hospitality design, focusing on hotels across the country as well as residential and commercial design. Having worked as both designers and project managers they bring with them all of the skills needed to provide a quality experience to Beahm & Son customers.
As Project Design Coordinators, Sloane and Rebecca act as the main point of contact throughout a project; providing knowledge and insight into difficult design challenges. They assist customers through the selection process, navigating the endless possibilities available to focus in on what really matters. Each of them are thrilled to educate and guide customers by putting their years of experience to use.
