Home News Big Bob’s welcomes Buckles as consultant

Auburn, Mass.–Vinnie Virga, CEO of Big Bob’s Flooring, announced the partnership of Big Bob’s Flooring, part of the Floors & More buying group, and Jim Buckles, business consultant to the flooring industry. Buckles offers consulting throughout the flooring industry, helping companies overcome obstacles through operational, financial, and technical analysis and change.

“I have had the pleasure of working with Jim many times over my career at many different companies, and we are excited that he will be available not only to our members, but also to our franchise organization as someone who can help our members maximize their profitability,” Virga said. He added that Buckles’ decades’ long involvement with and experience on RFMS software is another benefit.

Scott Appel, partner in Floors & More and co-owner of Touch of Color, said Buckles “helps us bridge the gap of providing exceptional systems and programs with someone who can help them execute operationally and financially when they are in need of extra onsite or remote support. Jim has a track record of helping people when they hit critical growth stages, or are having a hard time breaking through to a new plateau.”

Buckles has experience with all levels of the industry from his involvement as an initial hire for CCA Global, running the finance end of their company-owned stores in St. Louis, through consultation with retailers ranging from single stores to multi-store national chains, to CFO of a company producing over $135 million in flooring, cabinet and counter sales (builder and retail).

“The opportunity to work with Vinnie, Scott and their group is the rare moment to help an organization that is poised to change the flooring industry as we know it today,” Buckles said
