Derek Schwenkbeck

High Point

Derek is a western New York native who studied industrial design at Rochester Institute of Technology and has more than 15 years experience in the furniture industry.

Derek told us “I’m very excited to bring my zeal for the creative process in partnership with the team at Hightower. I’m looking forward to taking our next favorite piece of furniture from a concept on the computer screen to the showroom.”

Away from work Derek enjoys working on home improvement projects, hiking, and spending time with his wife, Nicole and daughter, Chayanun.
