Ruffino Custom Closets

Christian Russell and Matt Ruffino

ABC’s award-winning mockumentary “Modern Family” brings merriment to audiences, as among other things, it satirizes the world of closets, closets, closets. But one thing is abundantly clear; the character Jay Pritchett takes a great deal of pride in Pritchett’s Closets & Blinds. Christian Russell, co-owner of Ruffino Custom Closets shares that same pride.

“The first time I felt really proud of my work was when we successfully installed a library ladder in a master closet,” he says. “It was the largest project we had tackled at the time and it came together beautifully. That project still gives me goose bumps.”

Russell and business partner Matt Ruffino started their venture after Hurricane Katrina. He says after the storm people were eagerly looking for wire shelving so they had a place to put things as they began to rebuild their lives.

“My inspiration comes mainly through problem solving,” says Russell. “Our customers have a particular storage issue or need, and we meet that need by innovating ideas. These ideas become part of our overall DNA, inspiring newer and better ideas.”

Russell also takes pride in his family and he finds his weekends filled with lots of family adventures.

“I serve at church and work with the children’s ministry,” he says. “And my 11-year old son is active in Boy Scouts, so we are always going to fundraising events and camping out.”

Russell enjoys his work and believes success comes from one thing: solid teamwork.
