Matt Qualey / President

President Matt Qualey and his wife Laurie started Qualey Granite & Quartz in 2003 as an offshoot of their landscaping business. Today, with our location in Veazie, Maine Stone Design Center by Qualey offers the largest indoor inventory of slabs in Northern New England.

A Mainer who grew up on a potato farm in Aroostook County, Matt is no stranger to hard work. This dedication to working hard for clients is a core business value shared by every member of the team. When not working, Matt enjoys endurance training on his bike and at the gym, working on old race cars and Peterbilts, and hanging out with his greyhound, Baron.

Laurie stepped away from her daily activities in 2012, but she still heads charitable giving and community outreach for the company.
