Home News Johnson Hardwood creates CEO position, Promotes Schollmeyer to post

City of Industry, Calif.—Johnson Premium Hardwood Floors has promoted Bill Schollmeyer to the newly created position of CEO. Tracy Lee remains president of the company.

Johnson Ku, chairman, said the company is “aggressively positioned for profitable growth in the prefinished hardwood flooring segment, [and] the position was created because there was a need for someone with the leadership and strategic skill along with the experience to connect all of segments of Johnson’s nationwide markets.”

Schollmeyer has been with the manufacturer for four years, most recently as vice president of sales. Prior to joining Johnson, he was vice president of product management for Hoboken Floors with responsibility for managing and overseeing its domestic and overseas sourcing. He also has flooring manufacturing experience via sales positions at Mannington and Hartco.

As CEO, Ku said Schollmeyer will oversee the company’s U.S. operations as Johnson looks to stay aggressive under tough economic times and steadily grow the business and brand.

“Johnson always had the ability to stay flexible and be decisive because of our size and lean corporate structure,” Schollmeyer said. “I plan to capitalize on these core strengths to develop the best method of distribution for each market in which we compete.”

Johnson currently manufactures engineered and solid hardwood floors in Asia and South America. Working with distributors in most U.S. markets, it has offices and warehouses in California, Texas and Pennsylvania.
