Alliance Flooring CEO Hits the Road Again
Woodstock, GA, Aug. 27, 2012 -- For the second consecutive summer, Ron and Sandy Dunn loaded their RV, dubbed “Big Red,” and continued their mission to visit every CarpetsPlus ColorTile, Carpetland USA and Floorco member across the country.
This summer they focused on members in the New England and Mid-Atlantic states. Their trip began June 29 and ended Aug. 22. They visited every member store in Virginia, Maryland, Pennsylvania, New Jersey, Massachusetts, Connecticult, New Hampshire, New York, Pennsylvania, and Ohio.
“The trip was interesting, educational, relational, invigorating and fun,” CEO Ron Dunn said.
“Members have embraced the Proven Ways booklet that was generated from last year’s trip and are implementing new outside sales, internal customer service and creative marketing ideas that work.”
Visits included sharing of ideas, filmed interviews that will be used at the Flooring Alliance 2013 Orlando Convention and, in many cases, extended time in member homes and with family.
More store visits are planned for September, then on the road again in 2013 to visit more members.
Ron said he plans on continuing the drive across America for several more summers until every store is visited — then he hopes to start all over again.
