David Fuehrer has joined J+J Flooring Group as director of product.

In this role, Fuehrer will be responsible for leading J+J’s product design studio. He will also oversee and lead the company’s broader corporate product strategy.

“David’s talents and experience makes him uniquely qualified for this important role,” said Ross Leonard, corporate vice president of marketing for J+J Flooring. “Beyond his proven ability to combine manufacturing and production experience that yield innovative product solutions, he has demonstrated the ability to lead geographically and aesthetically diverse teams, develop consensus and meet critical deadlines.”

Fuehrer brings nearly two decades of product design and management expertise to the manufacturer. He most recently served as an associate and product design practice area leader for Gensler. During his five years with Gensler, Fuehrer oversaw more than 40 manufacturing partnerships and more than 50 product development projects.

“I’ve long admired J+J and its approach to product design, particularly since our design philosophies are very similar," said Fuehrer. “We both share a desire to create clean, simple design solutions that tell a compelling story and create a positive user experience. I’m excited to join the J+J team and build on the company’s rich history of design.”
