Mullican Flooring,  based in Johnson City, Tenn., has named California native Louis Gordillo as its west coast regional sales manager.

In his new position, Gordillo oversees the promotion of Mullican products to flooring distributors in a seven-state region that includes California, Washington, Utah, Nevada, Arizona, Oregon and Hawaii.

He is based in Brentwood, Calif., located in the San Francisco Bay Area of northern California.

“We are very pleased to have someone of Louis’ caliber and experience as a leader in our sales force,” says Brian Greenwell, Mullican’s vice president of sales and marketing. “Our company continues to grow, and it’s a tremendous step forward to have Louis representing us and aggressively making inroads into western U.S. markets.”

A hardwood flooring veteran, Gordillo has more than 27 years of experience in the field, a span during which he held several executive positions.

“I’m excited to join a leading hardwood flooring company such as Mullican,” Gordillo says. “I’m confident there’s a great deal of pent-up demand for the kind of diverse, quality products that Mullican offers, and I’m looking forward to building our brand recognition in the western part of the country.”

A native of Pleasanton, Calif., Gordillo began his wood flooring career while attending community college and working as a flooring installer and refinisher for The Floor Junction. In 1994, he obtained a position with a major Swedish flooring manufacturer as technical services manager with oversight of North America, Asia and Australia.

Gordillo later worked as the hard surfaces sales manager for a leading flooring supplier and held senior management positions with two major flooring distributors in northern California.

Gordillo currently lives in Brentwood with his wife and two daughters, ages 10 and 13.

In addition to its Johnson City, Tenn., headquarters, Mullican has manufacturing operations in Norton, Va.; Holland, N.Y.; and Ronceverte, W.Va.
