Karl Kothmaier

On June 1, 2018, Karl became the new owner and president of PMI. Under his leadership, PMI remains committed to providing exceptional service and solutions for our customers.

Karl became immersed in the furniture business when he studied cabinet making in his home country of Austria. After becoming a successful sales manager at one of the largest custom woodworking companies, Karl decided to pursue a new challenge.

Although anxious to succeed in a larger market, Karl arrived in the U.S. speaking only a few English words. Never one to shy away from an obstacle, in less than two years, Karl became fluent in the language while bringing a host of new customers to the business. Since then, Karl has worked tirelessly to expand PMI’s product range and partnerships.

Karl is an exercise enthusiast and professional globetrotter. He exemplifies what it means to work and play hard. To him, the U.S. is truly a land of unlimited possibilities.
