Shaw Industries Group Inc., the Dalton, Georgia-based floor covering maker, on Wednesday announced the retirement of Piet Dossche from his day-to-day management responsibilities at the company effective Dec. 31.
The founder of USFloors, which was acquired by Shaw in late 2016, he will continue to be strategically engaged with Shaw as a member of its board of directors.
"Piet is transitioning from an operating role to a more strategic position. He will continue to be a trusted advisor on market trends, innovation, and opportunities across the global flooring market," said Shaw Chairman and CEO Vance Bell.
As president of USFloors and executive vice president of Shaw, Dossche was an entrepreneurial change agent helping drive strategic, profitable growth across the company, according to Shaw.
"When Shaw acquired USFloors four years ago, both parties saw the opportunity of combining the fastest growing company and brand leader in the fastest growing segment of the flooring business, with Shaw's broad market presence, logistics network, technology and financial strength," Bell said.
