Region's Largest Office Interior Solutions Company Names New Leadership Team

DENVER, Feb. 20, 2024 ~ Slate, the largest office interior solutions company in the region and a studio within the Elements brand family, has announced a new leadership structure with industry veteran Marci Auston at the helm. As head of Slate and part of the Elements ownership team, Auston will be responsible for driving the company's mission of providing future-focused workplace solutions that engage people and empower organizations.

Traci Lounsbury, CEO of Elements, expressed her confidence in Auston's abilities, stating, "Marci has built her entire career demonstrating the power of place. I am confident that she and the leadership team at Slate will continue pushing us to elevate our client experience and deliver workplace experiences that inspire." Lounsbury also highlighted the expertise of each member of Slate's leadership team, which allows them to offer unparalleled creative approaches to help clients reimagine the future of work across various industries.

The new leadership structure comes as a result of the 2022 merger between Elements and OfficeScapes, two powerhouse furniture dealerships in the region. Auston, who was previously the principal of OfficeScapes, assumed the role of president following the merger. She succeeded Bob Deibel and is now leading Slate into the future as an integral part of the newly merged entity. With over 30 years of experience in the commercial furnishings industry, Auston brings valuable expertise to her new position.

Deibel himself praised Auston's contributions during her time at OfficeScapes, stating, "Marci has been an invaluable partner and collaborator throughout her entire career at OfficeScapes. Her forward vision always helped us deliver industry-leading innovation and value to our clients. She is exactly the right resource to lead Slate successfully into the future."

Under this new leadership structure, Auston will serve as president alongside her team consisting of Pauline Bargell (vice president of sales), Jenna Brovsky (vice president of sales), Jennifer Richards (vice president of client services), Christina Lovato (vice president of project operations), Darin Corrie (vice president of warehouse operations), and Lisa Blackman (vice president of design). Together, they will work to help customers navigate their needs within the built environment, offering a range of products and services from furniture to design. This holistic approach reinforces Slate's strength as one of the region's largest woman-owned businesses.

Auston brings a wealth of experience in creating high-performing workplaces that people want to come to every day. During her three decades with OfficeScapes (now Slate), she earned a reputation for empowering clients to create true connections to their workplace through human-centric design. She is also an active volunteer in both community service and business arenas in the Denver community, having graduated from the prestigious Leadership Denver program and currently serving on the Downtown Denver Partnership's Diversity, Equity, Inclusion, and Accessibility Committee. Auston holds a bachelor's degree in Political Science from Metropolitan State University.
