Becky Hughes, Office Manager
Becky keeps everyone in line and has been doing so since 2000. If she actually gets spare time, she spends it outside. She enjoys riding with her husband on their Harley, playing with Willie G, their pup and traveling. When stuck indoors, she likes reading, cooking for friends, playing cards, and sometimes binge watching English period dramas like Downton Abbey and The Crown. 
John Ross
John has been with the company for 16 years. When he isn't helping lead the team with the day-to-day workflow, you'll find him sluicing, camping, or fishing. 
He enjoys his part-time gig working at the Adams Center for the U of M.
Chad Kujala
Chad is our expert moulder operator. With over 32 years at Burnich and prior operations, he is pretty much an expert at other woodworking aspects as well. When he is stuck inside, you'll find him watching Gold Rush. Otherwise, you'll find this Montana native camping and tracking down trophy elk, deer, or fish to fill up his freezer.
Don Depalma
Our picture frames are so good because Don IS our frame department. As an experienced craftsman, his woodworking skills and attention to detail are put in every frame made.
Craig Redman
Craig is another member that can do it all. He has served in the military and has outstanding knowledge in many trades. Joining Burnich 3 years ago, he has brought that knowledge and expertise with him, lending a great skill set in woodworking. He loves to prospect for gold, fish, camp,and hike.
