After six years as the FCICA Chairman, Christopher Capobianco of Christopher Collaborative Inc., Patchogue, NY will step down from chairman of the FCICA Board of Directors. At FCICA’s annual convention in Albuquerque, NM, Christopher was awarded the crystal chairman’s gavel for his service to the association from 2005 – 2011. The elected successor of Capobianco is Gerry Swift of Potomac Floor Covering, Chantilly, VA., a member of the Flooring Contractor’s Association for more than seven years. The long-time friends will continue to work side by side on the FCICA Executive Board of Directors, as Capobianco will remain on as immediate past chairman.
“Christopher has led our association unselfishly and honorably for the past six years,” Swift said. “During the worst economy in decades, he successfully kept our membership base unified and strong, while being FCICA’s ambassador to the commercial floor covering industry. I realize that I have some big shoes to fill and challenges ahead as I prepare to take over as FCICA’s chairman on July 1st. I respect the history of our association and look forward to continuing the legacy of the organization that, through our FIT program, wrote the book on commercial floor covering installation. I am committed to working with our associate and contactor members on education and training to make our contractor members the best-trained and most knowledgeable flooring contractors in the country.”
