Effective Sept. 1, Bill Blackstock will serve as J+J Flooring Group's corporate vice president for sales strategy, replacing Bill Crosley, who is retiring after 36 years with the company.

Blackstock will work closely with the J+J leadership team to further hone the company’s short- and long-term sales strategies and product initiatives.

“Our success has always been founded on the quality of people that comprise our company," said David Jolly, president and CEO of J+J Flooring. "With Bill Crosley and Bill Blackstock, we have two of the finest sales management professionals in our industry."

Blackstock comes to J+J following 29 years with Milliken & Co. where he served in a variety of leadership roles. He began his career as a process engineer, eventually transitioning from automotive to flooring and from product development into sales management. Most recently, Blackstock led Milliken’s hospitality sales before assuming the sales leadership role for all contract and hospitality sales in North America and Latin America.
