“Elevate your Workplace” is the trademarked motto of G/M Interiors and President/CEO Stephen Easley.

Out of college, Easley worked for Bobby McGee’s USA, climbing his way up from waiter to training manager while helping open sites in California, Colorado and Arizona. Easley has been the president, CEO and owner of the company since 1989. During that stretch, G/M has grown to be the largest independent dealer in San Diego.
