Cikel America LLC, the North American subsidiary of one the world's largest vertically integrated FSC certified forest products manufacturers, has appointed Joe English to the position of Regional Manager for the west coast of Florida and the Gulf Coast from Tallahassee to New Orleans.
English, a long time veteran of the wood flooring industry, arrives at Cikel after 21 years with Hoboken Floors where he served in a similar capacity as a territory account representative. Based in Tampa, Florida, English will also assist Cikel with product development and the launching of new products to add to Cikel’s growing collection of sustainably harvested exotic Brazilian hardwood.
“I’m excited about this new opportunity,” said English. “Cikel is a company that talks the talk and then walks the walk when it comes to being an environmentally responsible company. In addition, it’s an organization that’s not afraid to revolutionize how flooring is sold with a new model that’s proving to be very successful.”
Cikel's parent company in Brazil owns more than one million acres of FSC managed forests and has garnered international acclaim for its work relative to environmental responsibilities. Cikel America is a member of the National Wood Flooring Association and the Forest Stewardship Council.
