Nick Began

CEO/Visionary

Nick founded Geauga Marble & Tile in 1988. When relocating to Cleveland Ohio, in 1999 he renamed the company Stoneworks Inc. He and his team of 200 grew Stoneworks to an annual revenue of $44M. The Company sold in 2017.

In 1992 he acquired a Marblelife franchise from Union Carbide. Marblelife of Cleveland later became known as Marblecare, which also sold in 2017. 

Nick is one of the founding partners of The RockHead Group, which is an industry-leading peer association group of stone fabrication companies with 85+ members, representing $1B in annual revenue. 

Most Important to Nick are his family values. He enjoys spending time with his three children and his fiance, Rana. His membership in The Entrepreneurs Organization, which is a peer-to-peer network exclusively for entrepreneurs is also meaningful to him. He believes that contributing his time while working with the EO mentorship program enriches both his business and personal life.
