Rome, Ga.—Foss Floors has tapped Sam Ruble, industry veteran, as vice president of sales.

Ruble comes to Foss Floors with over 38 years of experience in the floor covering industry. In his new position, Ruble will build and lead Foss Floors’ sales organization as well as provide strategic direction to support the company’s continued rapid growth in the residential and commercial floor covering markets.

“Sam’s sales acumen and proven ability to build key relationships fit perfectly with our drive to provide our customers with the best overall experience and increase our presence in the flooring markets we serve,” said Brian Warren, executive vice president of sales and marketing. “He will play a major role as Foss continues to expand our products, innovations and capabilities to give our dealer base appealing flooring solutions that will help them grow and keep their businesses strong.”

Prior to joining Foss Floors, Ruble was vice president of sales for USFloors. He has also previously held executive sales management positions with the industry’s largest flooring manufacturers, including Mohawk Industries, Shaw Industries and Beaulieu of America.

“Foss Floors is one of the industry’s best kept secrets that the residential brick and mortar accounts are not really aware of,” Ruble said. “I had several opportunities to re-enter the industry and chose this one because I can see a tremendous amount of upside potential. The space we live in is not crowded and we are the clear No. 1 in our flooring categories.”
