INSTALL Announces Retirement of Executive Director John McGrath

Washington, DC, December 21, 2022-INSTALL announces the retirement of executive director John T. McGrath Jr., who played a significant role in revolutionizing floorcovering installation training and standards for over two decades. 

McGrath first joined INSTALL as a committee member in 1997, while he served as business manager for Local 1823 (now Local 251), which represents the resilient floorlayers of the Eastern Atlantic States Regional Council of Carpenters. 

Since becoming executive director of INSTALL in 2006, McGrath has helmed the organization through a period of growth. He attributes that growth to building strong connections with professionals across the industry.

McGrath also was a significant contributor in creating the ANSI S600 Carpet Installation Standards. He is a sought-after speaker and conducted seminars for architects, interior designers, building owners, and facility managers to increase their knowledge of flooring installation issues.
