Meet MOE’S: Moe Samieian Jr.

August 26, 2014

Last month we announced the start of our new feature, Meet MOE’S, and kicked it off by introducing you to Sara Samieian. This month, say hello to her brother, Moe Jr. Just like Sara, Moe Jr. was born to work at MOE’S Home Collection – you could say it’s in his name.

Without further ado, meet Moe Jr. our fearless (and often jet-setting) vice president and CFO!

Name:

Moe Samieian Jr.

Title:

Vice President and CFO

Education:

I studied at UBC in the Faculty of Commerce, and graduated with a major in accounting.

How many years have you been with MOE’S?

I started with MOE’S right after graduating from university, nine years ago. I felt it was the best opportunity for me, not to mention, there was a lot of potential for growth. I also wanted to be a part of something that I had a stake in (it is the family company!)  I loved working part time during university, so it felt like a natural progression.

Favourite MOE’S memory?

It’s not really one moment per se, but making it through the economic crisis of 2008 stands out in my mind. We faced our biggest challenge yet, but we worked hard to get through it and came out of the situation feeling triumphant.

Beyond that, my job affords me the opportunity to travel around the world to incredible places like Italy, New York and China. In the past few weeks, I’ve gone from catching the US Open to seeking the perfect pieces for our showrooms in Shanghai.

Name one thing any homeowner can do to instantly perk up their pad for under $250:

Add a fresh coat of paint to the walls and a few new decorative throw pillows throughout the house. I suggest our Blue Ring Pillow – it packs a punch.

Name your signature design style:

Clean and contemporary, but I like to mix in rustic elements with natural wood.
