Hi there,

The company which became Hom Furniture was founded by Wayne Johansen
in 1973, and he still runs it in partnership with his brother Rod
Johansen and Carl Nyberg.

You will find an excellent article about the company's management on
the folllowing page:

"Sweet Smell of Success" CFGUpdate, September/October 2001

The article gives a neat breakdown of the areas of responsibility of
the three partners:

"[Wayne] Johansen ... now oversees the financial and real estate parts
of the business... Rod ... now oversees marketing and all purchasing,
and Carl Nyberg—... now oversees all sales and operational areas of
the HOM Furniture business..."

As I'm sure you already know, the company website is at

and their postal address is

10301 Woodcrest Dr. NW
Coon Rapids, MN 55433
(763) 767-3700

Furniture Today have a couple of interesting articles in their archive
about Hom:

Hom Seeks to be No. 1 in Bedding (November 6th 2001)

Hope this helps,

From a March 200 High Points article on HOM Furniture:

"This eight-store, family-run retail chain gets many of its interior
design ideas from retailers routinely visited by Wayne Johansen,
president, brother Rodney (marketing and purchasing) and Carl Nyberg
(operations and sales)."
