“I couldn’t be more proud and honored to have received our official LGBTBE Certification this month from the NGLCC,” said Reade Palmer, president of Sustainable Surfaces and Hero Flooring. “It is energizing to see that there are more than 150 major corporations that are partners and supporters of the NGLCC and Supplier Diversity. We will work hard to connect with each and every corporate partner to share our capabilities and service positions with them.”
