The A1 Stone World Team
Christian Stilianou is one of our Field Techs/Templators. He works with customers, contractors, and designers to craft beautiful spaces. Christian’s passions are learning and analyzing ways to become better and overcoming challenges through hard work and dedication. Christian is originally from Orange Park, FL. He is married with three children and enjoys building and woodworking.
As the CEO/Owner of A1 Stone World, Ken’s most important job is developing an amazing team. Ken’s passion is in developing leaders and systems that work together to create an incredible experience for our two biggest stakeholders – our customers and our employees! Ken considers himself a nomad, having lived in New Hampshire, Idaho, Colorado, South Carolina, and Florida. He loves spending time with his wife and 4 kids.
Nafeasee Kenaio ("Naf" for short if you’re so inclined) is our Director of People and Culture. She is focused on building a purpose-driven, inclusive, and engaged team. What gets her up in the morning, besides an iced quad shot Americano, is her love for learning, growth, challenges, and most of all, people. Nafeasee is originally from Saint Augustine, Florida, and has one son, Noah. In her free time she loves reading, cooking, working out, and practicing the guitar.
Originally from Naples Italy, Pasquale Bianco is our Production Manager and Computer Aided Design (CAD) Draftsperson. At just 5 years old, he disassembled his mother’s cabinetry, which could have been a sign that he was destined to work in the industry. Pasquale’s formal professional experience began in his family's tool repair business. He then ran a pizzeria for some time before he finally landed in granite fabrication nearly two decades ago. His work is craftsmanship at its finest!
As A1 Stone World’s Scheduler, Rebecca Bavar-Golcher is our resident puzzle putter-together-er. Prior to working on the A1 team, Rebecca worked in mental health and emergency medical services. She loves learning new and interesting skill sets, traveling with her family, and helping in her community. Rebecca is originally from Jacksonville, FL.
Robert Dennis is our Shop Manager. Robert joined the A1 Stone World team back in 2017 as a sawyer. He brought with him 15 years of experience and knowledge in both machine and hand fabrication. Robert prefers being a hands-on leader to keep his skills sharp and continue learning as the trade advances. Robert is a father of 5(!) who enjoys hunting, fishing, and off-roading in his spare time.
Tyler Hudson is A1 Stone World’s Director of Customer Experience. His business is in anything that impacts our customers’ experience with our company.
