Meet the Team: Chad Warthan

Chad Warthan photoChad Warthan joined Corporate Floors as a sales executive in January 2022. Chad grew up in the flooring industry and has more than 30 years’ experience in everything from sales and estimating to project management and installation. In his new role, he will help clients make smart flooring choices for their facilities.

“I have no doubt Chad is going to be an outstanding addition to the Corporate Floors team,” said Jim Burns, president of Corporate Floors. “His extensive experience and expertise in all things flooring will be invaluable to our clients and instrumental to our continued success.”

We sat down with Chad to welcome him to Corporate Floors and learn more about him, both personally and professionally.

1. Tell us a little bit about yourself.

I was born and raised in Prince George County, Virginia. Prince George was a small county at the time and did not get its first stoplight until I was in high school. I spent my childhood playing sports and raising horses, goats, rabbits, chickens and ducks. My father had a small flooring business. I started out there as a child, stamping catalogs and cleaning up for loose change, and then moved into the installation side of the business in high school and college before finally transitioning into a sales role. After my father retired, I worked for two different flooring and architectural products companies in Virginia. 

In the fall of 2014, my wife, a flight attendant, was offered a new position with American Airlines in Dallas. Close to that same time, I was offered a position with a commercial flooring company that was also located in Dallas. In January 2015, we packed up the family and moved to Central Texas. We currently live in Georgetown. Our boys, Colin (17), Cayden (14) and Colsen (10), have become true Texans, and my front porch is often covered in muddy cowboy boots. Our fourth child is a very spoiled boxer named Layla.  

2. Why did you decide to join the Corporate Floors team?

Corporate Floors has a great reputation in the marketplace and a proven history of success and innovation. Thomas Holland’s vision for the company has propelled it into a major player in the Texas market and beyond. Thomas has capitalized on the success of Corporate Floors and added new divisions to the company that are of great value to the company’s existing customer base and open doors into completely new markets. The company’s business model and vision for continued growth solidified my decision to join the team. I am very excited to serve the Central Texas market by working with the company’s Austin and San Antonio locations.  

3. How has your past experience prepared you for your new role?

Having worked on all sides of the flooring business, I approach my customers as a solutions provider and not just a salesperson. I’m looking forward to combining my 30 years of experience with that of the amazing team at Corporate Floors.  

4. What are your hobbies?

I love to exercise. In my earlier days, I was a competitive powerlifter. I try to work out at least four or five days per week. I enjoy watching good movies and despise sitting through bad ones. I also like getting outdoors with my boys and hiking, riding the ATV, hunting, fishing, working on vehicles or just working in the yard. My wife and I love to travel. We have been all over the country and the world together. In my downtime, I have a love-hate relationship with home improvement projects.  

5. What’s the most interesting article or book you’ve read lately?

I recently read Can’t Hurt Me: Master Your Mind and Defy the Odds by David Goggins. It’s an inspiring autobiography detailing how the author went from a childhood of abuse and obesity to becoming a Navy SEAL, top endurance athlete, world-record holder and motivational speaker. Goggins believes that most people are living at 40% of their true capability. The book is a very blunt and in-your-face guide to mental toughness and self-accountability. It’s about training yourself to push through the pain and adversity to accomplish your goals, especially when no one else believes in you. 

6. If you could only eat one meal for the rest of your life, what would it be?

Tacos! I live in the Austin area, and Austin is the No. 1 city in the United States for tacos. You can, and I do, get great tacos on almost every corner for breakfast, lunch and dinner. You can fill a tortilla with anything, and it’s still classified as a taco.  

7. What’s on your bucket list?

My wife’s father and bonus mom had a cabin with acreage in the western end of Virginia in the mountains. My family spent as much time there as we could. Her father recently passed, and the place was sold. I would love to buy a weekend getaway house with lots of land on the water somewhere where my family could once again go and spend time together for generations to come.
