The continued growth and evolution of the flooring industry is due, in part, to the contributions of the young women and men rising through its ranks, changing and challenging the status quo with new approaches, innovations and strategies. The Emerging Leaders Awards recognizes the best of these up-and-coming talents within the dealer/retailer/contractor sector of the flooring business.

Among the winners this year are exceptional managers, directors, executives and owners who are making waves in the industry. The 2019 candidates were all outstanding, and our judges,industry veterans Ralph Boe and Paul Friederichsen, had a difficult time narrowing the field to eight winners. Congratulations to the Floor Focus 2019 Emerging Leaders Award recipients.
