Home News IVC US announces changes in executive leadership

Murfin is now president of IVC US.

Dalton—IVC US has made distinct modifications to its executive leadership team in conjunction with the Mohawk Industries acquisition.

Xavier Steyaert, co-CEO of IVC US, will be leaving the company after a decade of service. Steyaert has decided to pursue other personal and professional projects, and has agreed to remain on board through the end of Q1 2016. Steyaert was a founding member of IVC US when he moved to the United States in 2005 to start the company.

With immediate effect, Paul Murfin has assumed the role of president of IVC US and continues to lead its North American vinyl division. Murfin joined IVC US in 2011 and has been partnering with Steyaert since 2012 as co-CEO.

Andrew Kearton, vice president of manufacturing, IVC US, has been promoted to senior vice president of operations, and is responsible for manufacturing, operations and logistics. Kearton joined the company in 2010 and has been IVC US’s manufacturing leader since the start of its first sheet vinyl plant.

“It has been a unique experience to be part of IVC’s rapid growth in the North American market,” Murfin said. “We will miss Xavier and recognize his significant achievements over the last decade. We have formed a tremendous partnership over the last few years. At the same time, I am also excited about this new opportunity for me personally, and the future of the business now that we are part of the Mohawk Group.”
