J+J Flooring Group Names Bill Blackstock Corporate VP, Sales Strategy
J+J Flooring Group, a leading manufacturer of commercial specified flooring, announced today that industry veteran, Bill Blackstock has been named as the company’s new Corporate Vice President for Sales Strategy.
Blackstock will eventually succeed Corporate Vice President of Sales, Bill Crosley, who is retiring later this year after 36 years with the company. In the interim, Blackstock will work closely with the entire J+J leadership team to further hone the company’s short and long-term sales strategies and product initiatives. Blackstock will assume the role of Corporate Vice President of Sales on Sept. 1, 2015.
“Our success has always been founded on the quality of people that comprise our company. With Bill Crosley and Bill Blackstock, we have two of the finest sales management professionals in our industry,” said David Jolly, President and CEO of J+J Flooring Group.
Blackstock comes to J+J following 29 years experience, serving in a variety of leadership roles at Milliken & Company. He began his career as a Process Engineer, eventually transitioning from automotive to flooring and from product development into sales management. Most recently, Blackstock led Milliken’s hospitality sales before assuming the sales leadership role for all contract and hospitality sales in North America and Latin America.
“I am pleased and excited to have Bill join our leadership team. His experience, proven leadership and energy make him uniquely qualified to lead our sales efforts as we continue to expand into non-corporate segments and global sales,” commented Jolly.
Blackstock received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering from the Georgia Institute of Technology. Blackstock and his wife, Maggie, will be relocating to the north Georgia area from Greenville, S.C., this summer.
