Picks Gallery was started in 1997 by Darin (D.J.) Bricker, as a new segment of the existing family business. The namesakes of
the business were John and Chistine Pick, valued members of the Lake community since the early 1970's, and D.J.'s
grandparents. Since opening, Picks Gallery has grown to encompass all that was the original businesses and the other family
members have retired. In 2010, Mike Irlander, a veteran in the building supply industry, joined as co-owner in order to help further
growth in new markets. We are proud to be a locally owned family business. We are able to perform with the efficiency of a large
company, but the understanding and values that only come from working with your friends and family.
Our employees are our most worthy asset and they work hard to make sure every project is completed on time and in budget.
Our operations manager for all the the fire-related products is Rich Mades. He's been in this industry since 1998 and came to us
from the automotive parts and fabrication industry. Rich brought with him a keen attention to detail and the ability to see obstacles
as opportunites for Picks Gallery to do what other weren't able.
Our glass and accessory manager is Ben Hatcher. He's been in the construction supply business for many years in the Lake area.
Ben is fantastic at working with our clients to find out exactly what they are looking for and then exceeding their expectations. He
makes our work better by making the tough stuff look easy.
