Daniel Ray is the Director of Business Development at Preferred Floor and Tile Company. His role helps solve scalability and profitability challenges for Single Family Rental REITs and iBuyers as it relates to their flooring needs.
“My favorite part about my job is developing and nurturing relationships with our customers ensuring we are performing at the highest levels. I also love the lunches we have for new employees.”
Daniel is blessed with a beautiful wife and three precious boys, which is where most of his time goes. When they are asleep, he likes to run and weight train. When time allows, he enjoys deer hunting, reading good books and playing cornhole or golf.
In addition to his role at PF&TC, Daniel serves as the Associate Director on the Board of Directors for the Home Builder’s Association of Greater Charlotte.
Inspiration from Daniel
“If you want to go fast, go alone; if you want to go far, go together. Without our team, we are nothing – no matter how talented we think we are as individuals. With a ‘together’ mindset, we can influence and learn from one another and strengthen each other where others may be weak – for the long haul.”
Daniel’s Work Playlist
Usually at the office, you can find Daniel talking. However, depending on what’s going on, you may find him listening to Morgan Wallen, Ye, Chris Cornell or Chris Stapleton.
How Daniel Stays Motivated
You don’t have to look far to find what keeps Daniel going.
“I love hearing our customers tell me that we are ‘knocking it out of the park’ and responding to issues quickly.”
The best motivation for Daniel is when his company is asked to start rehabbing an entire house as opposed to just the floors. This is an indicator to him that Preferred Floor and Tile Company has a process that works seamlessly.
What’s The Future Hold?
“Something I am looking forward to is launching more teams across more cities as we continue to scale across the region.”
