Cramers Carpet One Spreads the Word - CEO is Business Leader of the Year!

Cramers Carpet One Floor and Home is proud to share that Howard Brodsky, founder, chairman and CEO of Carpet Co-op of America Global Partners in Manchester, has been named the 2012 Business Leader of the Year by Business NH Magazine.  Brodsky is being honored for his innovation and leadership in the world of co-ops, as well as for his extensive volunteer efforts in the state.

CCA Global companies collectively have nearly 3,600 locations in the U.S., Canada, Australia, New Zealand and South Africa.  Since the company was established in 1984, it has never endured an unprofitable quarter, recording more than 88 consecutive quarters of profitability.

Brodsky and an associate Alan Greenberg had a vision to dominate the floor covering market by creating a unique solution that would allow independent carpet retailers to operate profitably in an increasingly competitive marketplace.  Within just one year, they achieved their goal and made floor covering history.  Today, there are more than 1000 members since their initial start of just 13 members.

Brodsky was inducted into the World Floor Covering Industry Hall of Fame and two years later named National Retailer of the Year by the National Congress of Floor

Covering Associations.  He was also named Retail Entrepreneur of the Year by Ernst and Young and the NASDAQ StockExchange.  He won the Blue Chip Enterprise Initiative Award of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce as well.  For three years he has been named to HFN's Power 100, a list of the top executives who influence the home furnishings industry from Walmart's Lee Scott to Federal Reserve Board Chair Alan Greenspan. 

Brodsky also serves as Vice Chairman on the executive committee of the Floor Covering Industry Foundation, a charitable organization with a mission to financially assist floor covering industry colleagues who experience catastrophic illnesses/injuries, severe disabilities or other life-altering hardships.

He serves on the Board of Trustees of Southern New Hampshire University, on the Board of-the Palace Theatre in Manchester and Chairman of the New Hampshire Better Business Bureau.

In his spare time, he serves his community as justice of the peace.  To date he has a perfect record of performing wedding ceremonies for more than two dozen marriages that have all remained intact.

We are proud of his outstanding civic contributions and exceptional performance within the flooring industry.
