Anaheim, Calif. — The board of directors of the Floor Covering Business to Business Association (fcB2B) announced the appointment of industry veteran Mitchell Dancik
as co-president to serve along with existing co-president Aaron Pirner, CEO of CAP Carpet, Wichita, KS. Co-presidents of fcB2B serve without compensation.
In making the announcement, fcB2B chairman of the board, Chris Davis, stated the organization is fortunate to gain the services of Dancik to complement and work in concert with Pirner. “Mitch brings a wealth of experience and technical knowledge to the table that will mesh well with Aaron’s organizational skills. Together they form a very dynamic team to move the fcB2B agenda forward,” Davis said.
Dancik is chairman of the board of Cary, N.C.-based Dancik International, a leading provider of software to the floor covering, ceramic tile and natural stone industries. He is also a member of the Floor Covering Institute, providing consulting services to the global flooring market. Dancik started his career creating systems for the sales and distribution of a wide range of products including cosmetics, aviation parts, apparel and periodicals. He became fascinated by the unique, challenging aspects of the flooring industry and he spent the past 25 years working with over 100 leading flooring, tile and stone companies. He has always specialized in systems that work seamlessly for an entire supply chain. His company’s trademarked slogan is “It’s All Connected,” and his software has connected consumers, retailers, importers, distributors and big box stores to each other and to their respective manufacturers. Today, half of all the tile and flooring sold in North America is processed by Dancik software on its journey from the plant to the home. Dancik has been a consistent sponsor and participant in many industry organizations, including the North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD), Ceramic Tile Distribution Association (CTDA), World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) and fcB2B.
“I’ve been involved with fcB2B since its inception 10 years ago, and it is an honor to now serve as co-president alongside Aaron Pirner,” Dancik stated. “It is a pleasure to work on a project that spans the entire flooring industry, with equal and significant benefits to all parties. The people that work on connecting us all via fcB2B do so as unpaid collaborators in an otherwise competitive world. I look forward to contributing to this import effort.”
“I’m thrilled to have Mitch take on this responsibility,” said Pirner. “His talent and expertise will aid the organization beyond measure.”
Dancik’s appointment is effective immediately.
