DAVID GADLAGE

davidgadlage@koontzfurnitureanddesign.com

David Gadlage has been pleasing customers of Koontz Co. since 1980. The best compliments come from his customers who, “just love David,” and swear they couldn’t have done it without him. The homes of his clients have been featured in national and regional publications including Southern Living, Bathroom Trends and Log Cabin. His own home was featured on the cover of Southern Living Kitchen and Bath design book.

David works throughout Florida from Key West to Jacksonville. He welcomes commercial work and has done model homes, offices, banks, and sorority houses, along with horse farms and sea-side condominiums. Though he likes restorations and renovations, he appreciates the opportunity to work on a new home from the planning-on-paper stage throughout construction to the day of the open house party.

Mary Alice Adkison is Corporate Treasurer, head of Accounts Payable, and general chief and bottle washer, not to mention occasional truck-unloader.  For almost sixty years, Mary Alice has worked with all four generations of the Koontz family that have been involved in the business, to the extent that she is now a member.  Mary Alice has gone from hand-written ledger cards to complaining about how slow computers are.  She's looking forward to the next high-tech gizmo to make the business more efficient.  (We are all suspicious of her relationships with our vendor credit managers.  They seem entirely too cooperative - for which we thank Mary Alice, however she manages to accomplish it.)
