Meet MOE’S: Sara Samieian

August 26, 2014

As a family owned business, there’s nothing more important to us than the relationships we build and the people we work with. You put a lot of trust in us to help create beautiful and functional homes, and we think you should know who you’re dealing with. So, once a month, we’ll be showcasing one of the members of Team MOE’S.

To kick things off, meet Sara Samieian – general manager of our retail division and proud mom to Pinot the Westie (who you may recognize from Instagram).

Sara was born to work with MOE’S (literally!). Her father, Moe Samieian, founded the company and she grew up watching him build his dream. Once Sara graduated from university, she knew she wanted to get her hands dirty and help her father continue to build the family’s legacy. Her leadership style is anything but conventional. As general manager of the retail division, you can find her working from her office on our flagship location’s sales floor (or joining her team at the cash desk), trusty laptop in hand.

Name:

Sara Samieian

Title:

General Manager, Retail Division

Education:

I studied at UBC with a major in economics and minor in commerce.

How many years have you been with MOE’S?

I’ve been with MOE’S full-time since I graduated from university 10 years ago. I wanted to help grow the family business, and it seemed like the perfect way to get involved.

Favourite MOE’S memory:

When I took over the management of our flagship location off Terminal Avenue. I loved this moment because I got to work with the team I work with now, which I absolutely adore. I realized my passion lies in retail and buying, rather than working in an office. That’s why my desk is on the sales floor, as opposed to a private area.

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

Wall décor is the fastest, easiest and often most cost-effective way to update a home. I love our Smart Frog and Equinox wall décor. I have them in my own home and they’re so bright and cheery.

Name your signature design style:

A combination of rustic and modern. I have a very rustic dining table made from reclaimed wood with modern white leather chairs – it’s my favourite set in my home. I also love my grey comfy couch, which can work with both rustic and modern pieces.
