She added, “Royce excels at conveying a compelling design vision to the market, and she has consistently demonstrated connectivity with customers and design leaders. In her new role at Mohawk, she will be instrumental in funneling design needs and emerging trends back to our product management team, helping us provide cutting-edge design to our customers and giving us a competitive edge with the A&D community.”
