World Floor Covering Association (WFCA) CEO Scott Humphrey will remain at the organization’s helm through to at least January 2028.

The association has extended his contract with the option for renewal on a yearly basis.

“I am both humbled and excited for the opportunity to continue leading the WFCA,” says Humphrey. “We have laid a strong foundation for future growth, innovation and success. Together, with our dedicated team and passionate members, we will continue to navigate the challenges and seize the opportunities that lie ahead, shaping the future of the flooring industry.”

Now in his twelfth year with the association, some key achievements under Humphrey’s leadership include bringing the Floor Covering Business to Business program, Certified Flooring Installers Association and Floor Covering Industry Foundation under the WFCA umbrella; growing the association’s member base to more than 10,000 from 3,000, by offering free membership; launching WFCA University and the SEAL-accredited leadership program; spearheading WFCA’s response to the installation crisis, securing funding for critical research that highlighted the challenge and catalyzed the formation of the Floor Covering Education Foundation to address the skilled labour shortage; and steering the industry through the unprecedented challenges of the pandemic.

Throughout his tenure, Humphrey has also prioritized educational initiatives and community engagement, introducing impactful programs like Tuesday Tips, the Leadership Live video series and Grow with Us webinars. By leveraging WFCA’s industry experts, these efforts have not only enriched the industry’s knowledge base but also fostered a collaborative community spirit, setting a standard for professional excellence and unity.

“Under Scott’s leadership, the WFCA has seen unprecedented growth and strategic innovation,” says WFCA board chair Sam O’Krent. “His foresight has not only navigated us through significant industry challenges but also expanded our influence and membership. With the solid team Scott has assembled, we’re well-positioned for future success.”
