OUR TEAM

We love what we do, who we do it with, and who we do it for. 

The entire Townsend Leather Team considers themselves Customer Service team members because each Townsend Partner is passionate about creating great work and working as a team to delight our customers.  

Below is just a handful of the magical superstar crafts-people that work at Townsend Leather.

For over 50 years Townsend Leather has led the industry in color-matching, custom capabilities, company-culture, and quality.  We put care for craft, people, and quality in everything we do and we look forward to custom-crafting that care for you too.  We ARE the manufacturer and we are leather experts, who will work with you to recommend and select leathers that will meet or exceed the performance and design-dreams of each project. 

We can help you estimate order quantities, provide a prompt sampling of all in-stock and standard leathers, work with you to develop custom colors, textures, and finishes that meet your project specifications, adjust our production schedule to meet your delivery needs, and make your every-leather dream come true, together.

A Favorite Thing:
My favorite products are metallics, especially ones with a natural antique undertone like Regal and Stargazer.  With customer orders for colors and effects less sparkly in the past year and more subdued and contemporary by our customers – I gravitate towards very lightly finished natural grain leathers like Prana and Softina.  I love anytime customers veer out of the popular greys, creams, and grieges – I love vibrant, pretty colors with hospitality beginning to make a comeback I’m thrilled for an Antique Legends French Blue and Manchester Sangria Red coming though now!

Something People Might Not Know About Me:
A lot of people in the company know I help out in selecting orders, and customers that’s probably closely with me also know this – but throughout Covid I think many would be shocked to know how much of our orders I allocated while also overseeing production.

The atmosphere! Our love for leather, family-oriented, close partner relationships, pride in our work, fun activities, care for others and so much more.  www.townsendleather.com/the-townsend-story

Something People Might Not Know About Me:
The reason why I love graphic designing is because of the feeling I have knowing I had a hand in creating something that is literally all over the world and is being used by others. It can be something locally or in another country, but just knowing I was a part of it means the world to me. For example, when I worked at Spray Nine in 2001, I created product labels and marketing materials that I can still see today are being used and I can say to myself “Hey, I did that.” I don’t need others to know it or get credit for it in any way, just knowing I had a hand in creating it, is priceless.

A Favorite Thing:
I love old cartoons from my childhood. If you wanted to know what it feels like to work at Townsend, I would tell you that it feels a lot like being in a Scooby Doo cartoon. You spend the day with friends, you face challenges together, you solve mysteries, you have each other’s back, and you always end with a celebration. The journey may take twists and turns but through it all, you know your friends are by your side to see you through. What feels better than a challenge ending in a win, am I right?  That’s Townsend. Everyone that works here comes to work ready for the journey and EVERYONE has your back. Being the company’s main recruiter and part of our onboarding team, I’m blessed with the opportunity to get to know everyone joining the family. It brings the biggest smile to my face when they come back to my office a few weeks into their career with us to remark about what a different place Townsend is.  That to me, is my favorite thing.

Steve Jobs once said, “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do.” Makes sense to us, in fact, I think you can literally feel that in our products. There is something different about leather made with love, excitement, and caring. I love SO many of our products, but my most recent love affair has been with Manchester Emerald City. Oh, I melted when I saw it in production. 

Something People Might Not Know About Me:
When I was in kindergarten I wrote and directed our class play. The whole class participated in our kindergarten open house. Because I wrote it, I knew every line. When they feel like embarrassing me, my family gets out the videotape of me mouthing the words through the entire production.

Rebecca is famously passionate about Townsend and famously humble.  So the words here are written by President, Jared, they are a small excerpt of what he wrote about her on her 20th anniversary at Townsend.   

Rebecca sets the example for nearly all of our values and superlatives! She’s a previous ambassador of Communication and Initiative, and is this year’s Ambassador for all Strong Women in the Jackie Fox Legacy Award!

As a modern woman in our company and we are stacked with them, she is such a great example of brains, brawn, and heart and in how to be a selfless partner.

I love this quote for her, “Being Humble means recognizing that we are not on earth to see how important we can become, but to see how much difference we can make in the lives of others.” – Gordon B. Hinckley

I love working with literal family and then people who feel like family.  www.townsendleather.com/the-townsend-story/community
My favorite part of the job day to day lately has been seeing how many beautiful colors, patterns, and finishes we make which is really showcased when a designer gives us a theme to work off and then we can be creative pulling from our sample archives and sending an array of options that dazzle . . . and then hearing from the customer as they make their final selection and tell us what application they are going to use the leather for!  This never gets old as the possibilities are endless and I still thrill with every new order we get as that means our leather will be part of someone’s home, aircraft, or in a public space like a hotel lobby. www.townsendleather.com/services

Something about me some people don’t yet know unless they travel with me is I love using time away from work to bond and create experiences whether that means I booked us seats at a show or I brought along a game to play or that I will make everyone go around in a circle and say something nice about the person to their right.

About the photo:
This is a picture of Barb and me on a hike in the Adirondack Mountains during the beautiful autumn season of 2012.  The picture represents two of my passions:  Family and Nature.

A message that Terry would like to leave to his family who succeeds him in the family business:
I paraphrase James Hughes from his book “Family Wealth”.   “Each succeeding generation must bring its own creativity and innovation to the family business.”  The third generation leaders of Townsend cannot rely on the successes of the previous two generations.  It must join the human, intellectual and financial capital it has inherited to the skills, passion and new ideas it brings to the family business.
