The holiday season is a time of joy and gratitude, which is how we feel about introducing Mark, the new owner of Closets for Life!  Mark’s passion for quality service, local ownership, and upholding the high standard that Closets for Life is known for made him an ideal fit to take over from company founder, Rick Lyrek.  Mark was drawn to the incredibly high standards of quality and integrity that Closets for Life has established over the years and wanted to be a part of its continued success to our local community.

How Mark Connected with Closets For Life

Mark brings 15 years of experience in building and designing. His dream was to find a company where he could tap into this experience while interacting with people, something he didn’t get to do often in his previous job. Working with people to design and create something functional and beautiful brings him endless satisfaction.

In His Freetime

As an avid lover of the outdoors, Mark enjoys spending time with his family camping.  He’s enjoyed many fun trips, from Texas beaches to Yellowstone National Park to local campgrounds like the Rice Creek Chain of Lakes Reserve, where you’d never know you’re in the city (ask him, he’d love to tell you about it!)
