Over the last 15 years, Randy DeBoer has built his Haworth dealership into one of the best in the Holland office furniture-maker's 250 dealer network in North America. Interphase Interiors has the exclusive contract to sell Haworth products in the company's West Michigan backyard and throughout Northern Michigan. The Grand Rapids firm is a repeat winner of Haworth's "Best in Class" awards, making it just one of eight dealers across North America to earn the distinction the past four consecutive years.
After 15 years of ownership, DeBoer, 62, has sold the dealership. Charter Capital Partners principals served as financial advisors to Interphase in the transaction. "We are really at the point we have an opportunity to expand to a new level," said DeBoer. "I had to step back and look if I was the leader to bring it to the next level." New owner David Faasse is an office furniture outsider with a track record in manufacturing. more
