Mike Cox

Eliane has promoted 20-plus year industry expert Mike Cox to general manager for Eliane USA. After joining the Brazil-based porcelain tile manufacturer from Mohawk Industries, Cox served as national sales manager for Eliane and will now oversee all aspects of the U.S. operation from its Carrollton, Texas, headquarters.

“I’m fortunate to work for people that I admire,” said Cox. “We have an extensive product offering, and our expanded warehouse presence allows us to operate in similar fashion to a domestic manufacturer... We’ll continue to offer great products at a competitive price.”

Cox succeeds Marcio Muller, who has assumed the position of vp for Eliane North America. Eliane operates six manufacturing plants in Brazil, and two distribution centers in the U.S.
