Caleb Barney

Lead Designer

Caleb began his career at Medina Exteriors and Remodeling working as an Office Assistant. He was very new to the field, as most of his experience had been health-related (he graduated with honors at The Ohio State University), but Caleb was able to learn a lot from our team.

Caleb says, “There are many things that I enjoy about working at Simply Distinct Kitchens & Baths, but two of the best things by far are the work environment and our customers. The atmosphere around Simply Distinct Kitchens and Baths is refreshing – we promote a life of learning, listening, and having a good attitude. The other thing that I enjoy about working here is working with the customers. I love seeing how excited our customers are about their upcoming home improvement project(s) and to help them see it through to the end. To us, customer satisfaction is our top priority.”
