Meet Our Executive Team
Say hello to the leaders of Bollock Enterprises!
Owner / ‘Diplomatic Fire Fighting Cat Herder’
Stuart Bollock is the proud owner of Bollock Enterprises. He's done it all here at Bollock, and he's been with the countertop store full-time since 1984 and part-time for many years before that. He graduated from Purdue University, and before working at Bollock, he worked at a restaurant briefly. Stuart firmly believes that EVERYONE should work in a restaurant at least once in their life. "If you don’t learn to be a patient, understanding, humble, respectful, honest productive human being, you didn’t work there long enough," says Stuart.
Stuart married his beautiful strong, outgoing, charismatic (and patient) wife, Mary Lee, over 30 years ago, and is a father to two "talented and overly quick-witted" sons. He also has a beautiful, charming, enigmatic and seriously entrepreneurial daughter-in-law, Carrie, who has brought a whole new refreshing way of viewing life into their family. Last but not least, his very vocal, demanding, protective Scotties: Darcy and McDuff. Finally, Stuart's personal interests include volunteer ministry work, photography, gardening, genealogy, spending time with the family and his best bud, Rob, and, "making sure my Scottish Terriers are constantly reminded that they indeed the center of the universe and reminding myself that by their good graces, I’m a member of their world."
Personal Philosophy: "Many years ago, a prospective customer of ours had a project that was beyond our scope of expertise. After I told him I would rather turn down his offer than to do a poor job or disappoint him, he said something that I have always remembered: "A wise person knows their limitations" Although not extremely prophetic, this quote reflects the philosophy of the owners and staff of Bollock Enterprises. We always strive to provide the best customer service in greater Lafayette, the best of materials available to us, and the best of product knowledge we can give our customers, not promising what we cannot honestly deliver. Many of our customers have come back time and time again, knowing that they will receive 100% in materials and service from all of us here at Bollock Enterprises."
