Charles George - Employee Spotlight July 2021

Charles George - Employee Spotlight July 2021
Charles George has been with Home Furniture for seven years. He served in sales for the first five years and currently serves as manager of our Julia Aubin location in Baton Rouge.

Before joining the Home Furniture Plus Bedding team, Charles’ experience of 16 years in senior management at a local competitor and his recognition of leadership abilities and promotions in the U.S. Army has benefitted his growth and success with both his family and
our Home Furniture family. Adds Charles, “Man, I love this company! I put God first in everything because while the goal may stay the same, we need to adjust our plans to fit God’s plan for us.”

Ross Dees, COO and District Manager of Home Furniture, adds, “Charles has been in retail sales and management his entire career. We are glad he is part of our leadership team at Home Furniture. He brings a lot of energy and passion for helping customers and leading the employees at the Julia Aubin location.”

To know Charles is to know of his love of trains! He became fascinated with them as a young boy and learned of them in detail from his father. One can easily see his enthusiasm and obsession with trains to this day as he proclaims, “My goal is to have a dedicated ‘Train Room’ in the house soon!”

After being honorably discharged from the military, Charles began his college education. At this point, he realized his passion and talent for working with and managing people while in sales. Plans changed, and Charles put his education on hold while he pursued a career in the world of retail.

Fast forward to just a couple of years ago, as a promise to his dying father, Charles committed to his goal of completing his college education. Achieving that goal, he now possesses a degree from the University of Louisiana at Lafayette in General Studies with a concentration in Behavioral Science.

Additionally, when asked to share the “One Thing” that most of us may not know, Charles replies, “I’m an actual chef! I used to work as a chef at Cypress Bayou Casino for six years, and I love practicing my culinary skills when I can!”

When not working or cooking up something delicious, Charles enjoys hunting, fishing, and watching his kids play sports.

Born and raised in Sorrell, LA, Charles resides in Jackson, LA, with his wife, Wanda, and daughter, Bailey. Charles and Wanda also have another daughter, Andrea, and a son, Landyn.

Charles also adds, “You can’t motivate everyone, but what you can do is to surround yourself with those who are motivated because they are the ones who will share the same vision as you.”

Thank you, Charles, for sharing the vision of Home Furniture and shining the light for others to follow!
