It’s official! FCI is getting its first-ever podcast called “FCI On the Floor.” I will be hosting different industry pros (that’s you) to learn more about your flooring journey, discuss installation tips, learn more about tools and technology and talk about what’s going on in the world of training and education. There will be opportunities for guest hosts, so if you have ideas, please shoot me a note! 

To help me kick off the first episode is Erika Riecker, director of HR systems and operations with Ecore. Erika served in the Marine Corps prior to joining the Ecore team. Following her service, she signed up for college and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in business and, like so many of us, fell into a career in the flooring industry. She shares her military experience, her extensive career with Ecore and how her son is keeping with the family’s military legacy. 

If there is something specific you want to know or learn more about, don’t hesitate to reach out to me. Also, if you’d like to be a guest host and have ideas surrounding an important topic, I want to hear from you. Email me at:
