Instructor Bio’s

Bryan Thomson, owner of Stone Edge Training and a natural born educator, has worked for Turbo Force International, Legend Brands and US Products as a trainer and salesman. He currently runs his own high end stone and tile restoration company in Phoenix Arizona .

Mike Pailliotet, the world’s most passionate carpet cleaner has been in the field cleaning all flooring types for over 34 years, runs Mikey’s Board, the oldest and most respected industry online forum as well as runs Mikey’s Fest, the world’s most unique industry event.

Stu Rosen, I worked for and was trained by MB. I had taken over the contracting business in 2004, as MB wanted to spend his time researching and developing products for professionals and consumers. After he passed, I helped Laura Bertoli (MB’s wife) run the business while still running our contracting business. Laura retired in June 2010, at which time I purchased MB Stone. We have really come full circle from our refinishing business (Stoneshine) to our consumer and stone care professional product lines. We still follow MB’s mantra, “Education Before Any Sale” and also practice his “system of no systems” which lets us work on stone based solely on the stones properties and characteristics. But more than anything else, he gave us a passion for stone refinishing and the products and tools that produce the best results.
