Fay established Anthony Corporation in 1987 after 13 years managing another commercial drapery firm. Before that, she worked with a drapery firm in Washington, DC that fabricated window treatments for designers & decorators. The DC firm’s clients included government offices, embassies and residential homes thru the trade.

Donna’s exposure to the window treatment business began in St. Louis, Missouri when she married Larry, Anthony’s Installation Supervisor. She then joined his business as manager and installation assistant. Together they accomplished installations all over the country. Prior to working with Larry, Donna worked at West Virginia University for over 30 years specializing in office management and program management. Donna enjoys working with her husband in a family owned business, and views it as an amazing way to spend her workdays. She is a certified beach person who’s motto is: “Don’t sweat the small stuff, life is too important.”

Stephen, our resident “foodie” was added to Anthony’s payroll while in High School in our warehouse. He traveled extensively for over 10 years doing installations all over the country. He has learned the business from the lowest rung on the ladder to assisting in all departments. Stephen delivers the best possible experience to our customers, under the mentorship of three generations of family – which works surprisingly well, considering. We are just waiting for his son to get a little older to add him to the family mix.
Lucy is our resident greeter, guest announcer, and mascot. She is a five year old Scottish Terrier that greets everyone with exuberance and tail-wagging. She is responsible for morale, security and squirrel monitoring. She sleeps, gets treats, walks, stalks squirrel and ensures that all meetings stay on track. She monitors meetings by stretching and yawning as a gentle hint the meeting needs to come to an end and take her on squirrel patrol. She is a major contributor to the company’s morale.
Greeter and Stress Reliever
