As a manufacturer’s rep, Giles regarded Patti as one of his “favourite“ accounts. With the passing years, their mutual respect and friendship has flourished. Patti is now in her element working with the team at GiCor. With over 27 years of experience she brings extensive knowledge of interior decorating products from drapery and furniture to floor coverings and cabinetry.
