Home Press Release Gobis recognized as 2015 TCNA Tile Person of the Year

Anderson, S.C—Tile Council of North America (TCNA) has named Dave Gobis its 2015 Tile Person of the Year in recognition of his innumerable contributions and exceptional service in the North American tile industry over several decades.

TCNA executive director Eric Astrachan said Gobis came to be recognized as an “industry guru,” a go-to resource in the tile industry who has had—and continues to have—enormous influence in the realms of training and education, standards development and inspection and consulting.

Gobis held the executive director and technical director positions for the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation (CTEF) for nearly a decade. In this role Gobis demonstrated his strong commitment to standards-based, non-proprietary training, and much of the core curriculum he created is still in use today at CTEF for its various installation and inspection courses.

“My time at CTEF represents the pinnacle of my career,” Gobis said. “I feel very strongly about training, standards and standards development. It is really important to have verifiable conformance and develop even, non-biased and non-marketing-driven standards for our products.”
