Our Team

Scott Gaulden
Scott Gaulden

Greetings. My name is Scott Gaulden and I have been the proud owner of Simmons Floorcovering & Supply since 2004. I am the third generation of small business owners in my family and I take pride in providing our customers with a satisfying buying experience. I purchased Simmons Floorcovering & Supply while I was working on an MBA from The University of North Texas. I looked at several different businesses and liked what I saw in this business.

I believe a well run business is a lot like a family. We have to work together as a team to satisfy our customers. I get a great deal of satisfaction from helping customers and love to hear our customers tell us that we did a good job for them. Our vision is for each of our customers to refer us to 10 of their friends and we take that vision very seriously.

When I'm not working I enjoy time with my wife (Julie) and three children (Chelsea, Chloe, and Colby). I enjoy concerts and love going to see high school football games.

My name is Siegfried Ehmke and I moved here in 1997 and Texas is home. I have always been in a customer service related position and it makes me happy to help people. I have three wonderful children- Jessica, Cody and Amber that make me smile every day.

I am very proud to work for Simmons, like me they are about customer service. In my spare time I enjoy running, working out and hiking at which any spare day off I'm on the trail.

My name is Meri Meyer. I was born in Arkansas and raised in Texas. My family moved to Texas in 1986 and I pretty much been here off and on since. I tried going back home to Arkansas but found myself moving back. The move back to Texas was well worth it. I was able to see both of my boy's (Josh & Alex) graduate high school. I married a wonderful man (Daryl) and have a lovely new step daughter (Shelby).

When I am not working I enjoy spending time with my family and traveling with my husband. With him being in the military there is never a dull moment.

I am the new office manager here at Simmons, and proud to call this my second home. All the guys here are great to work with and very professional.

I'm James Harvey and I've been in the flooring industry for 7 years. I began work, hands-on, as an installer and am fortunate to have had the opportunity to experience flooring from various aspects and positions. This experience has instilled a clear understanding and true appreciation for each step in the flooring process.

Simmons Floorcovering and Supply is an ideal "home" for me, as the company has been a staple in the Denton area for 26 years. The Simmons brand was created through hard work, dedication and honesty – values the company holds true to today.

As a project manager, I provide thorough information, realistic project expectations, customer satisfaction and accountability. What I enjoy most about the flooring industry is that there is always a need for flooring. I enjoy helping my customer choose a product that is right for them and delivering that product backed with quality assurance, installation and customer service - making a satisfied customer happy, right at home.

My wife, Lauren, is a teacher in Frisco ISD. We live in McKinney and have three dogs, who are our lives. Lauren and I remain very career driven. However, when we aren't working, we follow professional sports very closely (Go Pack Go!), enjoy live music and outdoors, especially the beach.

Helmut Hanss

My name is Helmut Hanss. Thank you so much for taking your time to visit our staff page! It’s always nice to know who you may be dealing with when making big decisions.

I am new to the Simmons Team and I must say, I am already thrilled to be a part of such a great family oriented business! I am proud to say that all of what you have heard and are reading in these biographies and all the reviews and feedback that you come across, are all real and heartfelt! I have used Simmons many times in the past in my previous occupation as a project manager for a local commercial construction company and always received outstanding service and products installed at a fair price. I thoroughly enjoyed working with Scott Gaulden all those years and am excited to now be part of his team! I was raised kind of old school and have always believed in doing the right thing every day for every customer, peer, associate, friends and family. I have lived by those words my entire life and it is a blessing to know that Simmons stands behind their work, their products and have such a great reputation for 12 years not only in Denton, but all over the metroplex! They truly “do the right thing”, for all their customers ever day! I encourage you to give us a chance to earn your business.

In my spare time, I enjoy spending time with my son (Christopher) as well as kayaking, fishing and camping. My background is primarily 25+ years of Commercial and residential construction management.

Thank you again for taking your time to read a bit about us. I look forward to helping you with all your flooring and solid surface countertop needs. 
We appreciate you!
