Board of Directors

http://www.thetiledoctor.com“The Tile Doctor was founded on the principle of providing to the consumer unbiased information about our industry in a format that can be understood. When the possibility of contributing to the formation of the first industry wide charitable organization was proposed, we simply dug in and went to work. The Tile Doctor has provided start up capital, internet presence, and most of all the donations of our time and effort to bring about this worthwhile organization. All the tile industry organizations have come together to support this venture in unprecedented fashion. Our mission to provide tile for every Habitat for Humanity house in North America is lofty but attainable in the future.”
Curt Rapp, CEO of The Tile Doctor.com
 
http://www.tile-assn.com/“I am delighted to have been chosen by Tile Partners for Humanity for inclusion on its board of directors. For many years, I have admired the collaborative efforts of all those involved in Habitat for Humanity. The need for affordable and quality housing is enormous. Our industry has enjoyed outstanding growth in recent years, and one way to give back to our respective communities is through the support of this project. Ceramic tile is an excellent product to be considered for Habitat homes. I look forward to doing my part to help make a difference in people’s lives.”
Bart Bettiga, Executive Director of the National Tile Contractors Association
 
http://www.tileusa.com/profile_main.htm“Tile manufacturers and manufacturers of tile installation materials have long wanted to participate in the helping hand of Habitat for Humanity. Many have actively helped in their local markets but struggled for a way to contribute nationally. Through TPFH leadership and their team building efforts, manufacturers, labor, and Habitat affiliates can be brought together to realize a goal of getting tile into every new Habitat for Humanity home in America. We are honored to participate in this most worthwhile effort.”
Eric Astrachan, Executive Director of the Tile Council of America
 

http://www.ctdahome.org“CTDA has decided to participate on the board of TPFH for many reasons. Most importantly, though, is that it helps us achieve two missions: one, to work toward the elimination of poverty housing in the United States and two, to promote and grow the consumption of ceramic tile and related products in the United States. We look forward to seeing many smiling faces of new homeowners as they walk into their newly-tiled homes. We hope that some of those people will consider the tile industry as a professional career.”
Rick Church, Executive Director of the Ceramic Tile Distributors Association

 

The Tile Heritage Foundation is honored to have been invited to serve on the board of directors of Tile Partners for Humanity, and I am delighted to accept the position. The mission of TPFH is exceptional, providing a broad spectrum of links from the tile industry to Habitat for Humanity and Habitat International. We can make a difference by using tiles to beautify the homes collectively built to serve an ever-broadening community, by teaching and learning new skills and by utilizing materials that might otherwise end up as land fill.

Sheila Menzies, Treasurer, Tile Heritage Foundation

 

http://www.tileschool.org/Habitat for Humanity has been a favorite cause of mine for years.  Since moving to Anderson, South Carolina, I have been privileged to help in the construction phase as well as the installation of ceramic tile in two homes.  Now being given the opportunity to serve on the Board of Directors of Tile Partners for Humanity has allowed me to do even more for the organization by promoting the use of ceramic tile and providing the products necessary for these homes to receive a beautiful and long lasting floor finish.
