BRIAN SIMONETTE
Brian’s background working in the Construction Industry has given him the knowledge to “put the pieces together” when dealing with Contractors. He feels at home on the job site and is not afraid to get his hands dirty. After years in the field Brian transitioned into building material sales where he began to build relationships with Builders. He is continuing to do that for Glowing Hearth and Home today. When Brian isn’t working you will likely find him chasing Whitetails around the woods. Whether it is New Construction or Remodels, Brian will be able to meet your needs on time and accurately!

TOMMY SHIMEK
Tommy has been around fireplaces his entire life. His Uncles, Ron and Dan Shimek, started Heat & Glo in 1975 and his father, Steve, and Uncle, Gerry, joined soon after to create the largest fireplace manufacturer in the world. Tommy has been around the building industry his entire life, and combined with his family history in fireplaces, this made for a seamless transition to Glowing Hearth & Home. Tommy’s knowledge of building materials, home building, and organizational skills have proven to be extremely beneficial in keeping his builders schedules intact throughout the entire building process. When he isn’t working he enjoys hunting, being outdoors, and spending time with family and friends. Tommy is excited to continue building relationships and working with builders throughout the Twin Cities and surrounding areas! ​

KEITH KROUSE
Keith has been with Glowing Hearth & Home since November of 2013. He started in the hearth industry back in 2000, working for both Fireside Corner & Hearth & Home Technologies. He has spent many years working with clients on everything from a simple gas insert to convert a dirty, drafty fireplace, to transforming and entire room with the installation of a direct vent gas fireplace and a wall of stone. He has experience with most hearth products including gas, wood burning, pellet, and electric appliances. Since joining Glowing Hearth & Home, Keith has enjoyed working in the fast paced and rewarding Builder Sales Division. Keith enjoys working with multiple people to make sure we are providing products and services safely, correctly and on a timely manner. He has recently accepted a role supporting the Builder Sales team as an In-house sales representative; other duties include working with commercial sales customers. ​

“I am writing to inform you of the wonderful service I received from your company and your employees. I went to 2 other fireplace stores before I went to yours. I was more confused than ever until I met Mickey. I knew more in 10 minutes with Mickey than I learned anywhere else. After my free preview with Dave, I signed the proposal and made a down payment. Everyone was easy to deal with and your team kept me in the loop every step of the way. The inspector came out and as soon as he saw my paper work, told me that I did my homework by hiring Glowing Hearth & Home. He signed off immediately and told me they are the best company for the job…and I agree completely.” Judy S., Eden Prairie, MN
