New Orleans—The International Floor Covering Installers Association (CFI) recently honored Tom Jennings, vice president, member services, World Floor Covering Association (WFCA), with the D. Christopher Davis the during the organization’s 21st convention here.
As he accepted the plaque—named after the late WFCA CEO Christopher Davis and given for recognition and dedication to quality flooring installation—Jennings, a former retailer in the Midwest and long time supporter of the CFI, told its members, “What you do absolutely matters. I always say, ‘Let’s not talk about the bad installers, let’s showcase the impact of good installers.’
Jennings added, “You can find anybody to put flooring down, the issue is how to put it down correctly. And because not all installation training is the same, that’s why we support CFI.”
Jennings was cited earlier this year by Floor Covering News as one of the 10 people making a difference in the flooring industry.
