A familiar face has returned to take the helm of Homecrest in Wadena.

Mark Fillhouer, who worked at Homecrest from 1998 to 2005, recently accepted the chief operating officer position and has returned to the company.


Fillhouer said he was at Homecrest during some of the troubles the company went through in the early 2000s, and had left in 2005 to take a job with Norwegian furniture company Ekornes, based in New Jersey.
