Jeff has over 25 years of experience in the flooring business. Starting in college, where he majored in Forestry, he has always been a technical guru on all things flooring – with an extra special interest in wood! Jeff started his career in the ceramic tile industry, worked in the carpet business, and in both retail and wholesale wood flooring before he opened Independence Floor Supply in 2012. He has been fine tuning our offerings ever since – focusing on wood flooring, tile of all styles, finishes, abrasives, machines, and machine rental and repair.
In his spare time, Jeff enjoys camping, kayaking, spending time with his wife, Steph, and their loveable dogs!
Steph has been in the flooring industry for over 25 years! She has been a part of most all aspects of supply and sales throughout her career – from purchasing agent of wood and tile, to retail sales, to office manager – and continues to be the one to keep everything in line in her role at Independence Floor Supply since joining Jeff in 2015. Steph wears many hats at IFS, including accounting, estimating, delivery coordinating, and much more!
When not in the office, Steph can be found walking their 3 Shiloh Shepherds – Gambit, Havok, and Wade!
Jim is a man of many talents and skill sets – ranging from his strong background in the financial industry in Chicago to the sales, installation, and product knowledge of all things hardwood flooring. Jim came to Independence Floor Supply from a local wood flooring retail shop where he spent a few years gaining hands on experience and can answer almost anything you throw at him about wood flooring! He is also a crucial part and has helped develop the course to the future of Independence Floor Supply!
We are very excited Jim and his family moved back to his wife’s home state of Maine and that he is now part of the family here at IFS!
Kady has spent her entire career in the design and building industry – residential and commercial – with a focus on tile design. She has worked on both the design side and primarily the supplier side prior to joining our team at Independence Floor Supply. Her knowledge of color, materials, space planning, and tile installation have taken our ability to help clients to a new level!
In her spare time, Kady enjoys time at the beach, the park, renovating her house, and family time with her husband and son, Henry!
Thomas has traded the water for land as he begins his career with IFS. Most recently working as a stern man for a lobster fishery based out of Portland, Thomas has a knack for hard work and finding a solution in adverse situations. He has previous retail experience as a sales clerk with ACE Hardware, which has helped lay an excellent foundation in providing exceptional customer service.
In his free time Thomas enjoys buying, fixing, and selling old cars; working on small engines, and racing motor-cross. His ability to break things down and put them back together is a welcomed addition to our machine repair shop!
