Floor & Decor also announced this afternoon that it has promoting CFO and Executive Vice President Trevor Lang to the position of company President.
The company said it will conduct a search for a new CFO, which will include internal and external candidates. Lang’s promotion will be effective upon the appointment of a new CFO.
Lang joined Floor & Decor as Senior Vice President and CFO in 2011, and was promoted to Executive Vice President of Professional Services and Chief Financial Officer in 2014 in connection with his assuming responsibility for leading the company’s pro and commercial business.
He previously served as CFO of Zumiez Inc. and vice president of finance for Carter’s, Inc.
“For the last 11 years, in addition to being an outstanding CFO, Trevor has been critical in leading our business in all areas, including our technology, Pro and commercial strategies," said Floor & Decor CEO Tom Taylor. After an extensive internal and external assessment, we concluded that his in-depth knowledge of our company, industry, culture, strategy and products make him the right person for this expanded role. I look forward to continuing to work with him.”
The Bottom Line: Sales jump ahead 27% to over the $1 billion mark as profits slide just 1.3% for the second quarter.
What the CEO said: “These earnings results are particularly gratifying to us when we consider the previous year's record sales and profits, the extraordinary inflationary impact of higher global supply chain costs on our results, rising mortgage rates, and ten consecutive months of declining year-over-year existing home sales,” said Floor & Decor CEO Tom Taylor.
The CEO noted that Floor & Decor plans to open eight warehouse-format stores in the third quarter of fiscal 2022 and a combined 32 new warehouse-format stores in fiscal 2022.
