History of Business


Connect Interiors was established in 2020 as a commercial interiors and facility services organization by CharRae Chwialkowski, Kim Dean, Amy Hannaher-Overby, Carlene Wilson and Catherine Mika. Together with Omni Workspace, we entered into an agreement to purchase the assets from Hannaher’s Workplace Interiors. The five women will serve as the majority owners and Omni Workspace will be the minority owners.

Chwialkowski, President, Dean, Vice President, and Hannaher-Overby, Client Experience Manager, manage and control our high-performing organization which delivers world-class workspaces to the business communities of Fargo and Grand Forks, North Dakota, and Detroit Lakes, Minnesota. Wilson and Mika serve as senior business advisors.

Building on our heritage of personal relationships and best practices, we are dedicated to pursuing sustainable value for our clients, team members, and communities. Our Connect team is proud to be a certified women-owned business, fostering diversity, innovation and growth.

As an authorized Steelcase dealer and the region’s premier women-owned dealership, Connect offers a comprehensive portfolio of products and services to our clients, ranging from small business owners to large corporations in healthcare, education, government, sports arenas and hospitality industries.
