Dan Cornelius

Although born in Georgia, Dan moved to Florida at an early age.  He planted his roots right here in the Sarasota area and put himself through college.   Dan has been married for over 20 years.  He and his wife are raising a family of 3 boys.

Dan began learning the ins and outs of the door industry in 1997.  He started from the bottom up first learning about providing installers with proper tools and equipment for each job, and management of inventory.  It wasn’t long before he became interested in the project management aspect of the business.  He flourished in that position until the year 2004 when he decided to put all that he had learned to use and start a door company that was a little different from all of the rest.  The most important things to Dan then and now, are customer service and a feeling of family in the work environment.

To help with the growing business Dan took on a business partner that shares the same beliefs.  Dan and Taren have been friends since childhood and have now joined forces in adulthood to be leaders in the door industry bringing you superior products, knowledge, and service.

Taren Sufferling

Taren grew up in the Sarasota area where he met his wife of twenty years and raised 2 beautiful college aged children.  He put his outgoing personality to use throughout the years as head of sales for a few choice companies in the area.  Those positions afforded him the opportunity to establish strong roots in customer service.

It has only been a few years since he came on board to Suncoast Commercial Door & Hardware, Inc.  as a partner with lifelong friend Dan.  Since that time he has become well versed in the aspects of the door industry, and the family atmosphere of the company.
