Chicago — The Board of Directors of the North American Association of Floor Covering Distributors (NAFCD) announced the appointment of Kevin Gammonley as the organization’s new executive director. He has been serving as the interim executive director since April and has a long-standing relationship with the NAFCD Board of Directors through NAFCD’s management firm.

Gammonley brings to NAFCD 23 years of experience running trade associations including several other wholesale distributor-oriented organizations. Gammonley’s career has been highly focused on working with distributors and manufacturers across different distribution channels. He has significant experience developing programs and events designed to enhance distributor productivity and effectiveness as well as establishing strategic partnerships designed to drive organizational growth.

“The NAFCD Board of Directors is pleased to have Kevin working on our behalf as our permanent executive director,” said Craig Folven of Herregan Distributors Inc., NAFCD president. “We have known Kevin for several years and have seen first-hand how he can bring enhanced value to NAFCD. We are excited about the opportunity to leverage Kevin’s deep expertise in serving distributor groups to support the continued growth of NAFCD.”

Gammonley said his immediate priorities are the implementation of the recently revised strategic plan, which includes enhancements to the annual convention and the overall NAFCD value proposition, as well as finding new ways to advocate on behalf of the wholesale distributor in the channel. “I look forward to working with the dedicated NAFCD volunteers, staff and partners to execute these objectives,” he said.

Michelle Miller, former NAFCD executive director, left the organization in April to pursue a new professional opportunity.
