Joe Barbaretta, General Manager

Joe Barbaretta was born and raised in the small town of Linden, Michigan. When he married his wife, Tracy, in 1996, they moved to Swartz Creek, then later to Grand Blanc to raise their children.

He is a laid back, blue-collar and blue jean wearing kind of guy. When Joe is not hard at work, he can be found spending his free time with family; from boating to baseball or riding motorcycles or snowmobiles, Joe prefers to be outside.

This January (2017) marked Joe’s 25th year, not only in the flooring industry, but also working for Fogelsonger’s, making his way to general manager and part owner. Joe has been with Fogelsonger's since 1992.

Geff, our “Rug Master”, was born and raised, here, in Flint, Michigan. He has been married for 34 years and has a set of mirror image twins. In his leisure time he enjoys playing cards and darts, and fishing. He also enjoys watching college football and basketball.
Geff has been in the flooring industry since 1973 (44 years); from selling to installing, and rug binding, he has done it all in those years. Here at Fogelsonger’s, he can usually be found in the warehouse manning the forklift or cutting a rug.
