About this Speaker

Paul De Cock’s deep understanding of the flooring market comes from more than 20 years of experience in Europe and the U.S., with a history of successfully running plants, large manufacturing operations and a multinational sales organization. For the past decade, he has served as President of our flooring business in Europe, where we are a leader in laminate, wood, sheet vinyl and LVT. He and his team designed and installed the first automated LVT line in Europe prior to our IVC acquisition. After the purchase of Unilin, Paul served as President of our North American hard surface business, where he grew the Quick-Step brand in the U.S., integrated the Columbia wood acquisition and increased sales across all channels. Since 2009, Paul has expanded our direct sales through greenfield and acquisitions of distributors in more than 10 markets worldwide. In 2013, he led the integration of Pergo into Mohawk, improving manufacturing while enhancing the premium brand’s value through performance and design innovation and product extensions. Most recently, he managed the acquisition of Godfrey Hirst, the largest carpet manufacturer in Australia and New Zealand, and the subsequent consolidation with our company-owned distributors in those markets.
