2010 Office Furniture Wins El Monte/South El Monte Business Of The Year Award

South El Monte Business of the Year Award

2010 Office Furniture is proud to receive the 2020 South El Monte Business of the Year Award and its recognition as Southern California’s leading retailer of new and used commercial office furniture.

San Gabriel Water Company has also received the 2020 El Monte Business of the Year Award for providing safe, reliable water service to El Monte and South El Monte for over 80 years.

10 Years and Going Strong

Established for over 10 years, 2010 Office Furniture is a small business with over 45 collective years of experience and is partnered with over 100 distinguished manufacturers dedicated to satisfying its customers with its broad selection of the highest quality office furniture and exceptional customer service.

2010 Office Furniture joined the El Monte/South El Monte Chamber of Commerce in 2009. They’ve maintained a close relationship with the Chamber by sponsoring fundraisers and joining in on the efforts to support the community.

Praise for 2010 Office Furniture

“Small businesses are the heartbeat of our community. Today we honor 2010 Office Furniture, a valuable part of this community,” EMSEM states.

“I hope that you have many more years of success and thank you very much for all that you have done. It’s not easy to run a company during times like these, but you guys continue to succeed,” Mayor Gloria Olmos said.

El Monte/South El Monte Chamber of Commerce

EMSEM— the El Monte/South El Monte Chamber of Commerce — is a nonprofit organization whose mission is to represent the unified voice that advocates for strength in education, membership and government legislation in economic development.

It’s a community made up of local businesses in El Monte and South El Monte that works with the Chamber to keep tax dollars local, support local businesses, and encourage local employment.

EMSEM memberships come with many benefits: they gain easier access to authorities such as City Council Members, community organizations, schools, and local law enforcement.

Sophia Alexander Receives Greater Irvine Chamber Lifetime Membership

Sophia Alexander Receives Greater Irvine Chamber Awards Lifetime Membership

Former Vice President of Sales at 2010 Office Furniture, Sophia Rose Alexander receives a Greater Irvine Chamber Lifetime Membership.

Bryan Starr, the president and CEO of Greater Irvine Chamber, proclaims that, “The Greater Irvine Chamber is pleased to recognize Sophia Rose with a lifetime membership. She has been instrumental in growing the Chamber’s Leads Group program, helping to create a space for our membership to form quality relationships, and meet people they trust with their business.”

Greater Irvine Chamber Leads Group

For the past eight years, Rose Alexander has spent countless hours as a part of the Chamber doing various volunteer leadership roles and helped expand the Chamber’s esteemed Leads Groups program. The Leads Groups program dedicates itself to contributing to the economic development of the Irvine area by enhancing and growing the businesses of Greater Irvine Chamber members through networking.

Rose Alexander has an impressive list of accomplishments: within a year of her membership, she joined the Wednesday Leads Group and went from being the co-chair to chair of the Group. She also spent her time with the Ambassadors Committee as a co-chair. Their mission is to promote and represent the Greater Irvine Chamber in the business community. About two years later, Rose Alexander was appointed as a Leads Group Coordinator and helped form the 1st and 3rd Tuesday, 2nd and 4th Thursday, and 1st and 3rd Thursday Leads Groups. As the Coordinator, she was tasked with working with the Chamber’s membership to grow the networking referral group. The next year, she was named the 2014 Member of the Year and Ambassador of the Year.

From Dallas to Orange County

Rose Alexander began her journey to success in 2011 when she relocated from Dallas Texas to Orange County in an effort to broaden her contacts.

She says that, “It’s been such an honor to serve the Greater Irvine Chamber for the last eight years. When I first moved here, I didn’t know anyone other than my daughter. Joining the chamber in November of 2011 with 2010 Office Furniture was such a blessing. Not only did it jump-start my business in OC, but it afforded me the opportunity to grow professionally and personally. The Chamber staff and members became my family as I got to know them all. I’ve met so many wonderful people, created a huge circle of influence and made a lot of wonderful life-long friends along the way. It’s been a pleasure helping create the Leads Groups, improving and growing the groups, and mentoring members along the way.”
