Floor Covering Institute Blog Offers Flooring Industry Insights, Research, Perspectives & More
Relevant to any immersed in the flooring and flooring covering marketplace!Yes, that may mean you!
This past September 2009, as a result of my affiliation with the Floor Covering Institute, I helped launch the Floor Covering Institute Blog.
The goal of the blog is to bring you "insights, perspectives, best practices and resources relevant to the global flooring industry all from seasoned and recognized flooring industry experts who have owned, operated, and served flooring businesses in every tier from manufacturing to retail buying groups." The experts in addition to me include:
+ Jim Gould [also interviewed in my Floor Covering Institute Series
+ Chris Ramey
+ Susan Negley [whom I need to include in my Women in Flooring series]
+ David Wootton
+ Lew Migliore
+ Stuart Hirschhorn
+ Carl Ruland
What I've found fascinating is the range of perspectives on one industry that having a group blog such as this brings. Stuart looks at the trends and patterns that his research on the floor covering industry uncovers. Lew is known as a flooring product trouble-shooter. Chris' name is synonymous with the luxury market. David knows hard surfaces. Jim and Carl bring international perspective and cachet. Susan, among many other responsibilities, is my partner in blog-crime!
These are the posts I've written so far:
