Horizon Forest Products and Long Floor have announced the recent promotion of Chris Williams to Branch Manager. Williams will head the companies’ Chesapeake, Virginia location and will be responsible for the day-to-day management of the branch, as well as directing sales, delivering profit, managing staff, and running the showroom floor.
“Chris has been with us for several years and has a very good knowledge of the business,” says company Vice President, David Williams. “He has great leadership skills and possesses the work ethic and positive attitude that will allow us to take our Virginia branch to the next level.”
Williams has been with the company full-time for three years in the position of Sales Representative/Assistant Manager, but started working in the warehouse ten years ago during the summer. He graduated from East Carolina University with a BSBA in Business and has completed training with the National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA), Bona Sand & Finish School, Clarke Training, and Lenmar Sand & Finish Training. Williams says that he is looking forward to the challenges that await him in his new position and the contributions that he can make to the team and company.
“Being with the company for ten years and involved with so many aspects of the daily operations will serve as a great foundation for my role as manager,” says Williams. “I’m looking forward to helping Horizon Forest Products and Long Floor continue to increase our presence in the Virginia market and working with our team members to help each of them achieve professional success.”
