“Talent wins games, but teamwork wins championships.” ~ Michael Jordan

We are a group of many who come together to divide and conquer. Every single one of the people on this page brings an aspect to our company that makes us whole and helps us deliver the best stone veneer, with the best service and quality installation, and at the best costs. We take pride in our workmanship, and the people who help it all come together. Meet the team who helps bring everything at North Star Stone all together:

Alan Andrews

Owner

Alan works his tail off for our customers (when he’s not busy tending to Millie) and has been doing so for 15 years. Alan has a passion for his beautiful wife, sailing, photography and his new grandson (not necessarily in that order). When he’s not busy on calls with customers, he’s usually found playing with Millie, out on his sailboat, or causing Kristen to pull her hair out.

Tara Davidson

Content Curator & Educator

Tara came to North Star Stone to help articulate all the things the rest of us just couldn’t seem to say. As a talented creative writer, Tara writes for the North Star Stone Blog, educating our customers. She also helps to keep Kristen sane. When she’s not busy writing, she enjoys wine, long walks on the beach & watching old episodes of The Carol Burnett Show.
