Meet The Stone Experts

Professionals who respect the stone and the end user.

Corporate Leadership

FrankHeadshotFrank Cunningham, President
I am a founder and CEO of World Wide Stone Corporation, exclusive quarrier and producer of Authentic Durango Stone. My career in Dimensional Stone began very modestly as a helper for two installation professionals in 1972.

I continued to install for about 12 years as I transitioned out of labor and into retail and then to wholesale sales of imported stone, including marble, travertine, slate and granite. A passion and appreciation for stone and its place in mankind’s story, pulled me into the world of quarrying and producing.

The story of Authentic Durango Stone published in our History section, reveals much about our Mexican quarry and factory operations. When I think of our company, I think of the powerful team which I work with daily. All of our team members over the years have been responsible for the growth and development of our marble limestone operations.

Joel HeadshotJoel Allred, Vice President of Operations

I have been working in Operations for over 20 years.  My Stone Industry career began in 2003 with World Wide Stone Corporation.  I began with the company as coordinator of inventory to supply sales which has turned into overall management of the company’s operations.

My role with the company includes all departments.  While maintaining an efficient operation process from production to delivery to the end user, I also support sales and work directly with our clients.  I provide all pricing from standard to your very detailed custom production requirements.  I am continuously developing procedures that enhance customer service.  I will also be your source for any customer care opportunity.


John HeadshotJohn Heck, Chief Financial Officer

My career started with the Big 4 then went into the public sector working in entertainment, transportation, waste & manufacturing of pool finishes. As Chief Financial Officer, my role is to oversee the financial growth of the company.

By allowing the company to make sound financial choices it will cause us to expand into new markets, while using technology resources will allow us to globally compete in a changing business environment.
