Carpet One Floor & Home recognized outstanding members of their cooperative with company-wide awards during their Winter Convention in Phoenix, AZ. The award winners were selected based on their contributions to their fellow Carpet One members and to the cooperative.

“Choosing these select members out of such an amazing group is difficult,” said Eric Demaree, president of Carpet One Floor & Home. “But we feel it is important to recognize those that go above and beyond in representing the Carpet One Floor & Home cooperative.”

Awards were presented in the following categories:

Alan Greenberg Award 

John & Beth Hughes - O’Brien’s Carpet One Floor & Home, Colorado Springs, CO

This award recognizes the member who most embodies the Carpet One Floor & Home spirit and who best represents what CCA Global Partners co-founder, Alan Greenberg, stood for. It is based on overall participation in programs, contributions to the cooperative, and support of fellow members during the previous year.
