William Clark spent his entire 45-year career with Azrock, joining the Floor Products Division in 1948 as a Sales Rep in Houston. At the time, the resilient flooring industry and Azrock was in its infancy. Clark used those early days as an opportunity to grow the company’s business and climb the ranks until reaching Chairman and CEO in 1992. Under Clark’s leadership Azrock grew to become a leader in the U.S. flooring market. While its position as a trendsetter in the area of design had far reaching implications for the export market, the company’s forward-looking approach was not confined to style and design. Clark was also a six-term President of the Resilient Floor Covering Industry; resilient manufacturing board member of the American Floorcovering Association and National Floor Covering Distributors, and a board member of the International Furnishings & Design Association and Dallas Market Center.
