ECORE International announces Thomas S. Davis, retired president and CEO of the New Jersey-based flooring company, Mannington Mills, Inc., has joined the ECORE Board of Directors.

At Mannington, Davis helped develop a management team and culture that is recognized as one of the best in the flooring industry by customers, suppliers, employees and even competitors. In addition, he also served as chairman of the Resilient Floor Covering Institute for 2008 and 2009. During that period, the organization developed a new strategic direction more in sync with the needs of the industry and its members. Davis joined Mannington after a 23-year tenure with Milliken & Company in Spartanburg, Georgia. Prior he served as an officer in the United States Army and earned his Bachelors and Masters Degrees in chemistry at Furman University. Arthur Dodge III, ECORE chairman and CEO, said, “Tom is a recognized leader in the flooring industry, and his reputation for integrity and evenhandedness is above reproach. I look forward to tapping into Tom’s experience and innovative spirit as we seek to take ECORE to the next level. We are delighted to have him on board.”

“ECORE is a company with a compelling platform,” said Davis. “In addition, they enjoy the collected wisdom of experienced personnel who have been in the flooring industry for a number of years, which translates to strong relationships, a cornerstone in our business. I am excited about being on their board and hope to be a contributor to their continued success.”
