Tom Graham, vice president of sales for Florida Tile, has received the Service to the Industry Award from the Ceramic Tile Distributors Association (CTDA). The award was presented to Graham at the International Awards Ceremony, part of the Coverings trade show held recently in Orlando, Fla. The award is presented annually to an individual who has demonstrated great dedication and leadership within the tile industry for many years, according to Eric Liao, marketing coordinator for the CTDA. Graham has worked in the ceramic tile industry for 31 years, all of them with Florida Tile. He began his career at the former Sikes Carpet plant in Lawrenceburg, Ky., and then worked his way into human resources at the Lakeland, Fla., headquarters before getting into sales. After a stint as a regional sales rep based out of Louisville, Ky., Graham returned to Lakeland, where he has remained since.
