Joe MacIsaac

President and CEO of Stone Source

Joe MacIsaac is in the business of design. For over 20 years he has led companies that distinguish themselves through a business model that uses design as a competitive advantage.

Stone Source, a national distributor of natural stone and porcelain tile, has the reputation as the best-- the best selection of natural stone, the best curated collections of porcelain tile, the best showrooms, the best service, the best people. Maintaining these standards requires attention to detail and an insatiable desire constantly to improve on these high standards.

Starting his design career with the iconic furniture brand Knoll, MacIsaac spent five years as President of Knoll International, traveling across the world to establish Knoll throughout Europe, the Middle East and Asia Pacific.

“Good design is not one thing” says MacIsaac. Well designed spaces are created one functional and beautiful item at a time. They come together with the imagination of an architect and designer combined with the rigor of the many professionals who insist on quality in both their products and their processes. To play a part in this journey one must want to be the best.

The business of design requires high standards and constant vigilance. Through his career, MacIsaac has brought his passion for good design into the culture of his organizations, always reminding them of Florence Knoll’s motto: Good Design is Good Business.
