It is my pleasure to nominate Craig Storandt, owner of Premier Design and Construction for the Mid County Chamber of Commerce Business Person of the Year. He has been a long-time supporter of the Chamber and gives freely of his time, resources, and expertise.
Craig has been the sole proprietor and owner of Premier Design and Construction Company located in Richmond Heights, Missouri for over 30 years! Craig has worked with numerous members of the Chamber (including myself) for commercial and residential remodeling jobs and his reputation for being honest, meticulous and easy to work with proceeds him and reflected in his many referrals.
Premier Design and Construction is a generous supporter of the Chamber with sponsorships for the Golf Tournament, Dinner Auction and others! Additionally, whether it’s the Cornhole Tournament, or the Pub Crawl, or the Mix and Mingle- Craig will likely be among the first one signed up! Finally, for over a decade, Premier Design and Construction has sponsored a team in the Chamber Softball league for which Craig serves as their captain-for what they lack in trophies, they bring in spirit and fun.
In recent years, Craig’s contributions to the Taste of Maplewood Street Festival have been invaluable. Over the years, he has assembled stages, hauled tables, hung banners, filled coolers, tapped kegs, helped lay wire, built a customized table, directed traffic, and quite literally everything in between. In 2019, in our Chairman’s absence, Craig rose to the occasion to oversee all logistics of TOM set-up. While we anticipated having additional chaos and problems in the absence of a longtime and significant volunteer- this did not occur. In fact, under Craig’s leadership- we had very few problems and were set up in record time.
More significant than the time and resources that he has given to the Chamber, is the spirit and manner in which he contributes. Craig doesn’t have to be asked, he takes the initiative to do what has to be done, and always has a big smile!
