FCICA, the Flooring Contractors Association, in cooperation with Metroflor Corporation, is pleased to announce Billy Smith of DCO Commercial Floors is the recipient of the Metroflor Certified Installation Manager Program (CIM) Scholarship.
This scholarship, funded by Metroflor Corporation, was raffled off at FCICA’s 2019 Mid-Year in Atlanta, GA. Only contractors were eligible to win the scholarship raffle. It provides for the entire program costs associated with the Certified Installation Manager (CIM) Program including application, content, and assessment fees, a value of $1,225.
“I am excited to take part in the CIM Program,” Billy said. “I’d also like to thank Metroflor for their partnership with FCICA and for supporting the CIM Program.”
Before working for DCO, Billy served as a flooring supervisor in charge of tile projects at Hartsfield international Airport. He was the lead mechanic with a tile company for 10 years, five of which were spent installing at Hartsfield, and a tile subcontractor for four years installing tile. He worked as a subcontractor for the residential division, Dalton Carpet One, in the mid 2000’s. His first role within DCO Commercial Floors began in January 2016 as a Site Super. He then moved into the role of Flooring Supervisor and has most recently earned the role of Installation Manager. He says that he enjoys the work chemistry with his teammates, as they all work together to make successful installs. Billy is certified in ProCore (project management, managing crises, and superintendent). When not supervising installations, he enjoys spending time with his family. He and his wife have three children, along with a grandchild. They love the great outdoors, fishing, hunting, and camping.
