Kevin Rabbitt Hops to Greener Pastures

Kevin, on his birthday, with a Piñata covered with competitors’ ads, a gift from the design team in Ventura.Tuesday was not a typical day here at 3 Day Blinds (not that there really is such a thing)!

We came to work, rested from the New Year, ready to hit the ground running to start working on all the initiatives surrounding our aggressive growth plans for 2012, but were interrupted by Kevin Rabbitt’s announcement that he would be leaving his position as our CEO to accept a new job where he will lead a much larger organization involved in sports and entertainment broadcasting.  Given his professional coaching background and the fact that he does not exactly shy away from the limelight, we are confident that he will be every bit as passionate about elevating athletes and celebrities as he has been about promoting our custom blinds, shades and shutters!

In retrospect, it is not surprising that he was stolen from us.  In his nearly 2 years with 3 Day Blinds, Kevin proved to be a world-class CEO, motivating our tremendous growth with a long list of accomplishments, not to mention providing a never ending stream of great material for your blogger!  We will miss you, Kevin, and we wish you all the best in your future endeavors!

Here are some photos from his going away party:

Customer Recommendation for Patty Stephens


I heard that you were in the market for window treatments, and that you are considering 3 Day Blinds. I wanted you to know that we just got our blinds installed and I couldn’t be happier! I found that 3 Day Blinds had the best price among the quotes I received and the service provided by Patty and her team was exceptional. I am sharing my experience with you, Patty and her managers, because it’s so hard to find great service these days and when you do you want others to know. If you have any questions I’d be more then happy to assist!

Hope your having a wonderful New Year!

The 2011 Circle of Excellence recipients were recognized on Tuesday in front of the entire team by Tikie Holewski, SVP.  “I was honored to share the names of the Circle of Excellence recipients with the group.  Everyone here at the corporate headquarters, in our factory and in our 19 showrooms knows that our first priority is to support our Design Consultants; they are on the front lines serving our clients in person.  These top 10 individuals have been tremendously successful in providing great product recommendations and superior service to their clients, and we want to recognize and thank them.”

All of our Circle of Excellence recipients will be visiting the Support Center in Irvine in February to meet with our Board of Directors and our senior management team.

Customer Recommendation for Emily Dankewycz

Thank you once again for your assistance in choosing the perfect shades for our master and hall bath.  There are so many choices and options for window coverings!  However, your knowledge of all the products and samples you showed helped us narrow down the selection for the “just right” look!  Your exact measurement also allowed for us to use an inside mount.  We have already shared your name with a couple of friends.  Happy New Year!
