Ed Korczak

Long-time National Wood Flooring Association (NWFA) exec director/ceo Ed Korczak has announced his retirement. Korczak had originally planned to remain with the NWFA until the end of 2011, working side by side with coo Michael Martin to transition into the association’s new leadership. But after the recent NWFA convention, Korczak felt he could hand over the reins.

“It was a great convention in San Diego, and a wonderful roast,” Korczak stated. “It was a lot of fun looking back on the many friendships I’ve made in this industry, but the time has come for me to move on … I thank everyone for a memorable 17 years with the NWFA.”

NWFA chairman Rick Holden recognized that Korczak’s “contributions to the NWFA and the industry have been significant” and that Korczak will be missed.

With Korczak’s announcement, Martin takes over as NWFA’s ceo.
