Our Experts

 

Mike Robinson, Owner

As a young independent contractor, Mike Robinson installed draperies and carpets in homes. One day he found his spare bedroom full of draperies and his garage full of carpet, so he went down to Chinatown and rented a space. Mike began his business with a $35 dollar investment and a handshake with the landlord. That was in 1980. Today, Robinsons Interior CARPET ONE® has numerous employees and does millions of dollars in business both in the residential and commercial sectors. Mike’s top concern is that his staff of flooring specialists does each job right and that customers get the best flooring possible for their budget. Today, Mike is thrilled to be working in the homes of his first customers’ grandchildren.

Maria Husak, Sales and Interior Decorator

With her degree in accounting, Maria Husak spent the first 20 years of her career crunching numbers. But she always had a flair for decorating and a way with people. That’s why Mike Robinson snagged her to join his sales staff of flooring specialists. Today, Maria considers herself blessed to be able to use her creative gifts helping people beautify their homes. After 15 years at Robinsons Interior, Maria has an established clientele that turn to her for decorating advice on more than just floor coverings.



 

Danny Coulon, Sales

Danny Coulon wants customers to know that Robinsons Interior only does floors. Big Box store staffers have to know a little about everything; they don't have the time to learn a lot about any one product. "We don't know much about refrigerators, plumbing, or paint. We do know about floors," says Danny. Danny originally came to Robinsons Interior after a number of years in the sporting goods business. So selling floor coverings was a bit of a change for him. Yet, he really found a home here and has been very successful.



 

Luke Robinson, Controller

Luke is the middle son of Mike and Barbara Robinson. He attended Chapman University and graduated with a BS in Accounting. After college, he returned to Hanford and went to work for another Robinson family entity becoming the General Manager for Adventure Park. Later, he went to work for Martin C. Garcia Accountancy where he honed his accounting skills. Today, Luke is the Controller for both Robinsons Interior Carpet One in Hanford and Robinson's Flooring in Fresno. In addition, he is busy learning the flooring business inside out. When not working, Luke loves to spend time with his wife and three children and, of course, the huge Robinson family.



 

Jake Robinson, Accounting, Tech, Sales

Jake is the youngest son of Mike and Barbara Robinson. He grew up around the flooring business, but he never saw himself actually going into the family business. It wasn’t until he grew up that he was able to appreciate the good name and solid business that his father had built. He wanted to become a part of continuing and building upon that legacy, so he joined the business in 2015. Jake graduated from California State University Fresno with a degree in Business Administration with an emphasis in Accounting and Finance. Jake is married and has two beautiful children ... so far. When not working, Jake enjoys spending time with his family, including eight nieces and nephews.
