As President and owner of Summit International Flooring, David oversees all sales and profitability. He is also in charge of all mill partnerships and product development.
After graduating from the University of Delaware, David worked for several flooring companies. With his education and the knowledge he gained from his father who was also in the flooring business; he joined BASF Fibers, the originator of solution-dyed products, as a Contract Carpet Consultant in 1984. From there he became Regional Manager for Lotus Carpets, then moving to Commercial Dealer Rep for Lasher Carpet and eventually becoming VP for Corporate Carpet Systems.
He quickly realized it was time to start his own business and opened the doors of Concorde Flooring Systems which quickly became one of the New York area’s premier independent commercial flooring dealers and consultants. During his tenure as President and CEO, he received numerous industry and business awards including the DuPont Antron award and INC. Magazine’s award for one of the 500 fastest growing, privately held companies in the USA.
Some ten years later, he realized that a smaller, boutique approach to the flooring industry would better fit new industry trends, as well as provide him the opportunity to bring more upscale, unique products to his clients. Given his understanding of what end-users and architects want and the ability to balance their wishes with what manufacturers can and do produce, he knew just what type of company was in order. And so, Summit International Flooring was born…
David spends the majority of his time focusing on the company, but he always finds time to play a round of golf with his family or friends. His other hobbies include animals (especially dogs), travel, fantasy football, and the theater.
