Scott Humphrey Tapped to Lead WFCA

Anaheim, CA, March 13, 2013--Scott Humphrey has been named as the new president and CEO of the World Floor Covering Association, effective April 1.  

In this role, Humphrey will lead the WFCA staff to serve this 3,000-member organization and drive its core initiatives.

Humphrey will serve as a visionary leader tasked with developing a long-range plan for the Anaheim, California-based association. He will serve as spokesman for WFCA with media and industry and will be responsible for directing the creation of national trade and consumer advertising campaigns and image-building promotions to raise awareness of targeted WFCA initiatives. In addition, he will be charged with identifying and seeking opportunities to develop alliances and partnerships with other organizations that will drive growth and business for members and the industry overall.
