North Florida Sales Consultant

Contract Floor Covering runs in Bubba's blood. He's a 3rd generation floor covering prodigy. He worked for his mother and father's contract dealership in Jacksonville from the age of 18.  When they retired that business, Bubba continued to work in sales at two large contract houses before making his final stop at CFD.  With incredible experience on the dealer & installation side for over 15 years, he's a well-rounded consultant that's always willing to go the extra mile.
 
A very competitive person, he won "best all around" in 8th grade and met his future wife the next year.  Last year he caught a Blue Marlin off Cape San Blas, Costa Rica while sitting on a cooler, fighting belt only, with an old TLD 25, 60 lb. mono and a snoopy rod!
