Michael Troia is the CEO of Office Gallery. As CEO, he works with clients every day to understand their needs and find the right furniture for every workplace. He began his career in office furniture and design in 1981 when he joined Scandinavian Design in Natick where he was instrumental in developing their Office Gallery division. Michael then built Jesper Office Furniture’s corporate customer base and was the General Manager of the Furniture Division of Macy’s in Braintree, where he met his wife Hilary. Michael joined Allen Wluka, a colleague from Scandinavian Design, as a business partner of Office Gallery International in Norwood in 1995 and built Office Gallery over the next 20 years. In July of 2016, Allen retired from Office Gallery and handed the reigns over to Michael and his wife Hilary.
Hilary Troia is President/owner along with her husband, Michael. They purchased Office Gallery in 2016; and for Hilary, this is a homecoming. Five of her 25 years as an executive sales leader were spent at the company she now owns. As someone who has both designed office space and who has been responsible for the most effective use of every square foot of a retail or commercial location, Hilary understands how to take an idea from concept to completion and how to make furnishings work well in the office environment.
Her eye for detail and quest for perfection helped assure her success at various executive level positions. She was Director of Marketing/Community Relations at Home Instead Senior Care, Vice-President/General Manager at Macy’s and owner of a commercial and residential space planning and interior design business, Manchester Lane Design.
Jordana Wluka is the heart and soul of the Office Gallery family. On board since 2004, her original intention was to assist Allen and Gwen Wluka, the former owners of Office Gallery, temporarily. Fast forward to today and Jordana is going stronger than ever, putting her many skills to outstanding use.
At the core of Jordana’s many and varied responsibilities is making sure that all delivery logistics are coordinated with Office Gallery’s vendors, customers and installation team. She is involved with IT support and sales and more than 10 years ago, her aptitude for web design came to light when she created the Office Gallery site. She was integral in redesigning the company logo and was instrumental in our rebranding campaign. Jordana works with and oversees our Operations team, ensuring an excellent experience for both our employees and our customers. She is always on the look-out for captivating ways to build the Office Gallery brand and keep us current with technologies, processes and overall efficiencies.
Jordana is an active volunteer with the Neponset Valley Walk to End Alzheimer’s, a passion that followed the loss of her grandfather to the disease. A desire to bring awareness of the disease that affects over 58 million Americans led her to take the reins as Volunteer Coordinator for the Walk and has since grown into the role of Logistics Chair, a pivotal volunteer position that requires extraordinary time and commitment.
Jordana’s philanthropic nature is also extended to The Nowy Dwor Mazowiecki Jewish Memorial Project.
