Manchester, N.H. — CCA Global Partners has announced the promotion of Cathey Gundlach to vice president of merchandising for the Flooring America/Flooring Canada, International Design Guild and The Floor Trader groups. In her new role, Gundlach will chart the course for proprietary, private label programs and execute the necessary trade up strategies for three of CCA’s flooring businesses. These businesses represent full service retail, luxury and outlet models.

Gundlach first joined the CCA team in 2006 working for the ProSource division. Most recently, she held the position of vice president of hard surface flooring. With nearly 20 years of buying and merchandising experience, Gundlach brings her knowledge of vendor relations and merchandising as well as 10 years of experience in the hard surface flooring category to her new role.

“Her prior positions at CCA have made Gundlach an ideal candidate for this position,” said Keith Spano, president of Flooring America/Flooring Canada and The Floor Trader. “She has helped CCA enhance their hard surface programs and has helped develop new brands that fit the growing demand for hard surface styles.”

Gundlach brings with her a practical understanding of cooperative members’ needs from both a product knowledge and pricing standpoint, as well as, long standing vendor relations to immediately impact members.

“I’m thrilled to see Cathey take on this new role,” said Charlie Dilks, chief product officer for CCA. “She will be an asset to her new team and I’m sure she will make great strides for each of these unique businesses.”

Gundlach will continue to operate out of CCA Global Partners’ St. Louis office.
