Our Staff

Monte - Gillespie's Abbey Carpet & Floor
Monte Hoover
President and General Manager

Monte started his employment at Gillespie’s under his mother and father, Russ and Charlene over 40 years ago! Beginning his employment as a cleaning technician, Monte has taken responsibility of anything from project management and business planning to marketing and accounting. As a Vacaville High School Graduate, 37 years as a member of the Fairfield Chamber of Commerce, Honorary Commander at TAFB and various other philanthropic groups, it is safe to say that Monte is a man of his community. In the free time he finds outside of working and giving back to the community, he’s likely in a duck blind with his chocolate lab Maggie, spending time with his wife Sharon or working on his yard!
Craig - Gillespie's Abbey Carpet & Floor
Craig Hoover

The middle of the Hoover boy’s, Craig also started his employment at Gillespie’s over 40 years ago! His career at Gillespie’s started with odds and ends jobs around the shop to cleaning and restoration to his current position as owner and installation manager. While his card reads “installation manager,” that hardly begins to describe what Craig does for the company. With over 30 years of experience with installation, Craig is an absolute artist at what he does and the epitome of a professional. While it seems like he works 25 hours a day, 8 days a week, the free time he does find is often spent fishing, camping and rafting or enjoying a Giants game at home with his wife Kathy.
Ron - Gillespie's Abbey Carpet & Floor
Ron Sukon

Gillespie’s is proud to have Ron, an IICRC Certified Journeyman Clean, as a member of their team. With 20+ years as a cleaning technician, Ron specializes in rug cleaning, carpet cleaning, repairs, re-stretch, upholstery cleaning, as well as tile & grout cleaning. Ron is the proud father of three kids, and has been a member of the Fairfield community for over 20 years. Outside of work, Ron enjoys fishing, hiking, and tackling his honey-do list!
Scott - Gillespie's Abbey Carpet & Floor
Scott Eldridge 

One of their longest term employees, Scott has been with Gillespie’s for over 22 years! Highly skilled and close attention to detail, Scott is a job lead that has an eye for unique installations. Scott specializes in custom hardwood and tile jobs and constantly finishes jobs with happy customers. When he’s not at the saw custom cutting tile, he can be found on the green golfing with his daughter Kalanna, at the field playing baseball with his son Scotty Jr. or getting a good work out in with his wife Denise!
Rhonda - Gillespie's Abbey Carpet & Floor
Rhonda Smith

For nine years Rhonda has worked as Gillespie’s Accountant. Although she specializes in accounting, Rhonda wears many hats at Gillespie’s and is extremely knowledgeable in Hunter Douglas window coverings. Raised in Fairfield and graduating from Fairfield High, Rhonda has kept her family in Solano County including her two grandchildren Ryan and Aiden. While she has her hands full as a mother and grandmother, Rhonda enjoys seeing live music, staying in shape, and enjoying the company of friends and family!
Jeffery - Gillespie's Abbey Carpet & Floor
Jeffery Shaw

After living next to Gillespie’s owner for most of his life, Jeff came to work for the G-Team. With 5 years of experience under his belt, his skill and dedication has given him the responsibility of job lead. Jeff specializes in hardwood, tile and customer satisfaction! When he’s not busy installing floors, Jeff and Sage (his 4 year old black lab) are busy hunting, fishing and exploring the great outdoors!
Tempe - Gillespie's Abbey Carpet & Floor
Tempe Hoover

As a member of the Hoover family, she has been around the business since she could crawl! As showroom manager, Tempe is well trained and highly knowledgeable in all things floors. With an eye for design, she specializes in anything from counter tops and backsplashes to custom area rugs and floor plan layouts. She is happy to come to a customer’s home to get a feel for the project and what product would look best in the space. When she is out of the showroom, she is most likely playing with her yellow lab, Lottie, reading a good book, or doing something outdoors!
