Cali names Jay Flynn to executive leadership team
San Diego, California – Cali is strengthening its executive leadership team with the addition of Jay Flynn, formerly of DCS Partnership Group (DCSPG) and Broadlume.
“We are thrilled to have Jay on the Cali team,” said Doug Jackson, president of Cali. “I have known him as a colleague in the industry for the past 25 years and have always admired his instincts, work ethic and ability to make great things happen. He’s just the right person we’re looking for at Cali during this time of brand growth.”
Flynn has been VP of Sales at Broadlume for the past three years, most recently responsible for new dealer sales for the Flooring Store United program. Prior to that, he spent 13 years at DCSPG, which provided technology-based tools and resources to support design centers for construction companies and flooring vendors. Flynn, along with his partner, Michael Vogel, was involved in all aspects of the business. The company’s Bridgeway Interactive brand and Creating Your Space brand were sold to Broadlume in January 2020.
Before DCSPG, Flynn was hired by a division of Creative Touch Interiors, the brand The Home Depot, to lead sales and design centers for construction companies nationally as they acquired and integrated large floor contractors who specialized in servicing production home builders. During his time there, Jay worked with the team to earn $1 billion in revenue.
After a brief stint as a distribution engineer for Florida Power & Light, Flynn began his flooring career with Tuftex Carpets in Southern California. He held multiple sales and marketing roles over the course of 12 years, eventually launching and leading the company’s construction channel, where he served as regional vice president of sales until 2003.
“I’m excited to join the team that Doug has put together,” Flynn said. “The consumer brand they have developed and their path to market is unique in the flooring industry, and I look forward to contributing to future growth and success for Cali and their customers.”
