Darien, Conn. -- Starnet Worldwide Commercial Flooring announced that Mark Bischoff is joining the organization as vice president of vendor relations, effective as of April 2018. In this role, Bischoff will manage all activities related to the Starnet Preferred Vendor network, including vendor acquisition, contract negotiation, business development, and training.

For the balance of 2018, Bischoff will work closely with Fred Williamson, executive vice president of Starnet, who is retiring at the end of 2018 after 50 years in the industry. Bischoff will focus on the very important Starnet vendor connections while gaining knowledge of the broader operations and goals of Starnet. Mark is joining Starnet with the expectation that he will ensure strong continuity of leadership for both the members and the Preferred Vendors.

Bischoff brings 22 years of experience in commercial flooring, having joined the Johnsonite organization as a business manager in 1996. Following the Tarkett acquisition of Johnsonite in 2009, Bischoff was named executive director of strategic partnerships, working closely with Starnet to develop a strong business-building partnership. Most recently, Bischoff served as senior vice president of healthcare and senior living for Mohawk Industries.

“Throughout Mark’s career, he has consistently demonstrated strong strategic leadership, excellent interpersonal skills and the ability to drive both revenue and profits,” said Jeanne Matson, Starnet’s president and CEO. “He values the importance of strong partnerships within the commercial flooring industry.
