A Georgia native, Joe comes to CRI after more than 30 years withMohawk Industries, where he most recently served as senior vice president of advanced manufacturing engineering.
He has expressed enthusiasm about his new position with the carpet industry trade group.
"I look forward to working with the CRI member companies and their representatives and the dedicated CRI staff in order to advance the mission and objectives of this great organization," he said.
He might be new in his position with CRI, but Joe has been actively involved with many CRI committees, including serving as the former chairman of the Strategic Issues Leadership Council.
Joe’s dedication to the carpet industry is evidenced by his illustrious career. However, he also has a heart for the Dalton community, where he has committed his much of his time to organizations likeRoss Woods Adult Day Services and the Greater Dalton Chamber of Commerce.
On behalf of the entire CRI staff, I say, “Welcome, Joe.” We are looking forward to your energy and leadership here at the Carpet and Rug Institute.
