Bill Blackstock Named to FCEF Board

Dalton, GA, October 13, 2021-The Floor Covering Education Foundation (FCEF) has welcomed Bill Blackstock to its board of directors. 

Blackstock will be filling the seat currently held by Dean Thompson, Blackstock’s predecessor at RFCI. With Thompson’s retirement, Blackstock will be taking on his role as president and CEO of the Resilient Floor Covering Institute and his seat on the FCEF board of directors. 

Blackstock will meet with FCEF leadership and the rest of the board in person at their November 10 meeting in Chattanooga, Tennessee. The board meets in person twice a year to provide insight, ideas, and support to the FCEF team. 

Prior to the formation of FCEF, and as a member of the Floor Covering Leadership Council (FCLC), Thompson played a key role in launching a major research initiative that RFCI helped fund that provided a broad base of facts and data related to the industry installation issue. 

Thompson has held his seat on the FCEF Board since the organization was created in 2018. Despite setbacks caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, Thompson was a huge part of moving the FCEF forward, helping to hire Executive Director Jim Aaron and getting the scholarship program up and running.
