Company: Sheryl Madonna Textiles and Trimmings
Location: La Cañada Flintridge, CA United States
After earning a Bachelor of Fine Arts from the University of Arizona, Sheryl Madonna decided to open Sheryl Madonna Textiles and Trimmings. The company works with designers and architects to provide high-end lighting, furniture, outdoor furniture, accessories, case goods, and wall paper. As the owner, Ms. Madonna’s main responsibilities include speaking to vendors, reviewing new products, and educating designers and architects, and working with clients. Her greatest strength is her ability to listen and focus on the needs of her customers, and she really values the relationships she has formed with them.
One of Ms. Madonna’s professional goals is to streamline the collections she carries by focusing on the projects that make her the most successful. For example, she carries a lot of outdoor products and supplies them in Los Angeles, where they are very popular. Ms. Madonna will realize her vision by dropping products that are not as high in demand in the area she is selling, and emphasizing the products that are.
The biggest challenge that Ms. Madonna had to face was balancing her family and work. She looks at a lot of women in politics as her inspiration, however, as well as friends who are very successful in their businesses. Seeing their transformations is a source of motivation. When Ms. Madonna isn’t working, she is volunteering with her son’s high school marching band. She is an honored member of The International Women’s Leadership Association, and hopes to be remembered for being very engaged with people.
