What is your personal mission statement?
I’ve always embraced the notion of leaving something better than when you found it, and I try to apply that to every aspect of my life - both personally and professionally. Contributing to the success of a project is a big motivator for my work here at Stratosphere Hotel, Casino & Tower.

What were you like as a child?
That depends on who you ask! For the most part, I’d say I was outspoken and fearless; as the youngest of four children, I kind of had to be! I’ve always been inquisitive about the world around me.

What sparked your initial interest in the field?
What appealed to me the most about the food & beverage industry was the unpredictability. There is something so motivating about the constant excitement and energy in this line of work. You walk in knowing that no one day is the same, and I enjoy that. It keeps me on my toes. This field is fast paced and demanding, but it’s also incredibly vibrant and dynamic, which is why the food & beverage environment is something that I’ve never grown tired of.

STACY FALCONE - SF DESIGN FOR BESPOKE HOMES LV OWNER

Stacy’s trademark with everything from bespoke furniture or custom home building is that “design must have purpose, and it must last. -What good is designing something if it gets tired or out-dated fast.” There must be elements of modernism paired with old-world integrity. For instance the architecture lines may be razor-sharp modern, but the finishes may be classic like raw, honed marble. At the very least, the architecture must match its surroundings…. “you won’t catch me designing a French Chateau in the desert!”

Bespoke Homes is a premier collaboration of her partner’s expertise in construction management and building high-end custom homes with her business and design background. Together they construct and develop spec-homes, custom homes for private clients, and gut-renovations.

What makes me a Dynamic Woman?
The first business I created was Napa Valley Bike Tours when I was nineteen and a year later I helped start Whitewater Adventures. The range in providing 800 guests a 2-day adventure down a river, or on bike & wine tours, powered me to pursue the hospitality industry. I then launched a world class restaurant which had catering, olive oil and wine production from the surrounding vineyards. Later, I went on to become a Vintner producing 15,000 cases of wine a year, with distribution in 42 states. All of these experiences gives me this dynamic backbone.

What sparked my initial interest in my current field/career?
A decade later I sold the wine label and moved to NYC. Because I had studied design and architecture in college, I started to design and manufacture furniture and opened a showroom. Soon I was not only furnishings client’s condos but also renovating them. I worked closely with the contractors, and they taught me a lot about construction. Today I am lucky to have a renowned builder as a partner, and we construct high-end custom homes under my design and business direction.

The greatest lessons I have learned in my work?
To run your business free from ego and greed. I have seen first- hand too many business-owners fail because their selfpride got in the way of true processes and progressive changes.

Best advice ever given?
Never assume.
