Daniel T. Hendrix, President and Chief Executive Officer, Interface, Inc.
Appointed in July 2001 as president and chief executive officer, Dan is committed to ensuring that each Interface business unit is a high-performing asset that provides a positive and meaningful environment for its employees and strives toward sustainability in all dimensions people, product, place, process and profits.
Dan joined Interface, Inc. in 1983, shortly after the company's initial public offering. He was quickly elevated from financial manager to treasurer and then to chief financial officer in 1985. Working as CFO at Ray Anderson's side, Dan led Interface in a series of acquisitions, both domestic and international, ranging in size from $2 million to $150 million.
Several of these acquisitions nearly doubled the company in size, including the 1985 acquisition of Guilford of Maine, the leading manufacturer of fabric for office systems furniture, and the 1988 acquisition of the largest carpet tile manufacturer in the world, Holland-based Heuga, which combined then-number two Interface with then-number one Heuga and firmly established Interface as the leader in that market segment.
More recently, Dan spearheaded the acquisitions of premium broadloom carpet manufacturers Bentley Mills and Prince Street; the formation of joint ventures in Asia; and the acquisition of North Carolina furniture fabrics manufacturer Chatham.
Prior to joining Interface, Dan was employed by a multinational public accounting firm as an audit manager.
Dan is a native of Florida. He graduated with honors from Florida State University with a B.S. in accounting in 1977 and is a certified public accountant. He and his wife Betsy live with their two children, Lauren and John, in the Buckhead area of Atlanta.
