Doug Redding has always been interested in art & design. He excelled in Art class in High School, studied graphic design in college for a couple of years paired with a strong interest in interior design. He got side tracked by the mortgage industry; first as a loan officer, then as asset manager for a National REO/Foreclosure company,  and finally as a real estates agent. However, he came back to his passion for design 5 years ago when a friend approached him about a job in sales at European Marble & Granite. He has been an amazing addition to the European Marble & Granite family who takes pride in his work.

"European Marble is like a second family to me.  Everyone gets along so well and is united with a common goal to be the best in all that we do." - Doug Redding

As a sales representative, Doug particularly enjoys working with couples. He feels a sense of accomplishment when he can get both clients to come to an agreement on the perfect stone and design for their home. It's a balance of getting to know and understand the clients aesthetic, style, color palette (warm or cool tones), etc by asking lots of questions and then building upon those answers to bring about the prefect solution for their space. Maintaining a sense of pride in his work, engaging with clients, and enjoying camaraderie with his peers, Doug has become a valuable asset to European Marble & Granite.

Kathleen has had a long time love for European Marble & Granite. A background in interior design led her to bring her clients to European Marble & Granite to create stunning and memorable stone pieces for their homes and offices. In 2001 Kathleen brought her 24 years of design experience and growing fascination with stone work to join the European Marble & Granite family as an in-house designer and sales representative. In 2011, she and Joshua Crook took over operations and became co-owners of the company.

Working alongside a team of talented designers and craftsmen,  and with the capable assistance of Jessica Katwyk and Lauren Keogh, Kathleen is continually inspired by what a group can create from stone. Dedicated to excellence no matter the cost, the European Marble & Granite team is what drives her passion, “We have craftsmen and salespeople who come to work everyday giving their best work to our company. Daily, I see hard work, loyalty, dedication, and spectacular skill.”

Travel with her husband Craig, time with her family including the twin grandsons, an occasional bridge game or a good book are treasured times for Kathleen.

Kathleen took ownership of the company in 2011. Under her leadership, European Marble & Granite now leads the Intermountain West in custom stone and tile projects. It is her philosophy of exceeding expectations and inspiring clients that has established European Marble & Granite as a leader in the marketplace and keeps the company moving forward.

Jared Ogden joined European Marble & Granite several years ago and was instantly impressed with the myriad of different colors and patterns that “Mother Earth” had to offer. Having graduated from the University of Utah with a Communications and Public Relations degree, he applies his knowledge by helping clients enjoy pieces of natural beauty in their own personal residential/commercial space.

Jared is  an outdoor enthusiast, and he frequently finds himself trekking, climbing, river rafting, biking, etc. through Utah’s mountainous terrain. Jared enjoys gaining an appreciation of stone in its original state, and he finds it impressive that stone from all over the world can be carefully installed in a setting outside its natural resting place for personal admiration.

Being a part of the delicate process where stone is brought from a mountain to installation is what brings Jared joy in the industry. Jared loves that European Marble & Granite is a “Yes” company that takes any client stone application request, regardless of its complexity.
