Interview by Marjorie Young (Open For Business) with Andy Johnson, the CEO of Stoneworks located in Hilton Head, SC. Andy discusses how they have pivoted during Covid by reaching out to SCORE mentors, Karen Casey and Michael Waters of the SCORE SC Lowcounty chapter. These mentors guided Andy on all the SBA loan applications when the Covid crisis first appeared. StoneWorks and SCORE have worked together for many years, so Andy knew who to call for business guidance when the pandemic hit.
Stoneworks fabricates and installs natural and man-made stone primarily into the residential market, for both new construction and remodel.
