Solon, Ohio—Don Styka, Tarkett’s director of field services and CFI master installer No. 383, was awarded the R. Christopher Davis Award. Presented in memory of Chris Davis, former president of WFCA and friend of CFI, the award recognizes members of the flooring industry who promote quality installation through their support of CFI.
Styka began his career working for his uncle installing flooring for Sears and other local stores in Youngstown, Ohio in 1979. Looking to expand his knowledge, he accepted a position with a local flooring distributor in the mid-1980s. Styka entered the manufacturing side of the industry as senior technical specialist at Johnsonite in 1999. Johnsonite was later purchased by Tarkett in 2005.
Styka possesses a wealth of knowledge in flooring installations, application processes, products, maintenance, sales and management. Once certified, he became very active with CFI. As founding member, he served as secretary-treasurer, member of the board of directors, president of the Northeast Ohio chapter and was a senior certifier.
The entire team at Tarkett is thrilled for Styka and is grateful to the service he has provided to the industry and beyond.
