Andrew Glave
Account Executive Commercial Sales

Reach out to Andrew Glave for all your Commercial Outdoor Projects.

Originally from Greensboro, Andrew’s father, an artisan, owned a small furniture company in High Point NC.  Some of his earliest memories were attending Market with his father as he displayed new collections. After graduating from college with a degree in Graphic Arts, Andrew moved to Charlotte with a hunger for new opportunities. He gained knowledge and management skills working within several retail and technology companies. While working as a Manufacturing Sales Account Manager he was able to support a wide variety of industries, including most of the furniture manufacturers in Western North Carolina. After spending several years in the industry, he needed something that allowed him to be more creative. Andrew was introduced to The Fire House Casual Living and knew he had found a home. He was finally able to showcase 15 years of sales and project management experience with a creative outlet! Partnering with many different commercial clients;  and being able to bring creative, outside the box solutions that solve many problems for outdoor spaces, makes Andrew the perfect person to head up our new To The Trade only division for Commercial Projects.
