Ira Lefkowitz, longtime president of Hoboken Floors, has resigned.  His brother Joel will remain as CEO of the 77-year-old distributor. In announcing the decision, Ira Lefkowitz offered no indications as to his immediate plans. “This transition comes at a good time,” Ira said. “I am looking forward to new challenges. And my brother has a great plan for Hoboken Floors.”

The Lefkowitz brothers purchased the Wayne, N.J.-based distributor in 1996. Under their leadership, the company grew from a handful of offices in New Jersey to 18 divisions stretching from Maine to Texas.

Joel noted that he plans to focus on fine-tuning the company’s customer service as Hoboken enters a “new era.”
