Stuart Hamilton  A degree in Interior Architecture from Kansas State University led to my first career of owning an Architecture & Furniture Company in Kansas and later joining Herman Miller, Inc. as a market manager and workplace consultant. We relocated to Angel Fire, NM in 2004 while working for Herman Miller. During my time in Angel Fire, I switched careers to real estate, working with my wife and daughter, and was Mayor for 4 years. We relocated to Santa Fe in 2016 to get closer to 3 grandchildren in Rio Rancho. In mid-2016 I returned to the furniture and design industry as general manager for Goodmans Interior Structures. Golf, Photography, and Fine Art Painting are my hobbies.
Goodmans Interior Structures is a commercial furniture dealer specializing in Herman Miller office furniture and DIRTT pre-fabricated interior construction. We create great lifetime furniture experiences for our customers. We listen and research to find each customer’s unique needs and employ great design, project management, support services and account management to assure our customers are satisfied. But what makes us unique is our vision to Change the Community. We are known as the largest dealer in the Southwest but more importantly, we are known as a company putting people before profit. By leveraging company assets, resources and manpower, Goodmans has created a culture where giving back to the community is part of everyday life for our employees.
