Tim Engel, VP Residential Sales


I am a 30+ year veteran of the flooring industry, spending the last decade here at MCI, first as a general manager and now as VP of residential sales.

I am married with 2 children.  I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching my kid’s sporting events, time at the lake cabin.  I also like to hunt, fish, and golf as often as possible.

Kurt Kremers, Sales Manager and Design Consultant


Good Design to me is all about 3 key components, Style, Personality, and Feel.


Style is what represents you as an individual and how your lifestyle plays into your design.


When it comes to Personality – your design should represent just that – “your personality” whether it be clean and straightforward or whimsical and fun, let your personality shine through your design.


Feel should be how the space makes you feel when you walk in.


Good design is neither right or wrong as long as these components are incorporated within it and I love focusing on that with each client and witnessing it come to life.

Bill Broughton, Sales Consultant


I was born and raised in Robbinsdale, MN.  During college, I attended a sales event where I was asked to sell a pair of shoes.  I was one of the only participants who asked the judges if they would like to try on a pair of the shoes.  That simple question landed me a position at MCI 32 years ago.  I knew from that moment I was meant for sales!


I have built many relationships with my clients and enjoy working with them.   


Outside of work, I enjoy spending time with my wife, 4 kids and 2 granddaughters.

Carla Payonk, Sales and Design Consultant


I have more than 20 years of experience with flooring sales and design and nowadays I work mostly on new builds, helping homeowners with their entire flooring plan.  One area of focus for me is tile, and I really enjoy working with my clients and helping them update and elevate their spaces with custom tile designs.  Because I am usually involved in the months from blue print to punch list, I get to make real connections with my clients and that’s what I really love about what I do.

Outside of work, my family is my center.  That’s everything from helping take care of my dad, working with my husband around our farm place, or fishing for hours with my grandson.

Cheryl Hermstad, Sales and Design Consultant


I’ve been in the flooring industry for more than 20 years in stores across Minnesota and North Dakota, and the one thing that hasn’t changed is the satisfaction I get when I help a customer find the product that’s just right for their home.  Whether they come in with a clear idea of what they are looking for or aren’t sure of their direction, I know I can help them because I understand how our products perform and can guide them in the right direction.

In my free time, I enjoy spending time outside in the summer, going for walks, working out at the YMCA, and hanging out with my son and granddog.

Dawn Scott-Yackley, Marketing Manager and Sales Consultant


Your home is your space to bring comfort and joy.  It is also a reflection of your style and personality.


My goal with every client is to bring that to life in an effortless way.


The things most important to me are my family and friends. In my spare time, I enjoy many things including the exploration of this beautiful country we live in with those close to me.

Debbie Schramel, N.C.I.D.Q., Sales and Interior Design Consultant


My passion for Interior Design started at an early age.  I remember my dad’s advice “find a career that you are going to enjoy”.  I have a Bachelor of Fine art in Interior Design from UW-Stout.  When working with a customer, I truly seek to understand their needs then execute their vision by actively listening and focusing on their end goal.  I appreciate interiors that promote peacefulness, calm and well-being; characteristics such as monochromatic or blended colors, clean lines and visual openness.  My biggest influences have come from working at a well-established interior design firm in the metro, as well as my dad’s strong work ethic. Faith, family and friends are also an important part of who I am.

Wayne Bills, Outside Sales Operations


I came to MCI about a year ago after deciding I needed a career change and have never looked back.  I’ve been in construction for my whole career as a contractor and project manager for a local irrigation company, but this is my first time working with flooring.  You probably won’t see me much on the sales floor, I mostly support our outside sales department behind the scenes, working to make sure our multi-family and disaster restoration projects run well.

I am the proud dad of two daughters.  I love to hunt, fish, golf, and smoke food year-round.
