Introducing the 2020 Hardwood Floors Magazine 40 Under 40



Hardwood Floors is honored to recognize 40 industry professionals under the age of 40 who are helping to determine the future of the wood flooring industry. These individuals are today’s movers and shakers who are already setting the pace for tomorrow.

This year’s list was unveiled during the Hardwood Floors N.O.W. (Networking. Outlook. Workmanship.) online event in November.

We are privileged to shine the spotlight on these outstanding men and women whose career accomplishments have moved them to the forefront. Their professional track records have helped to establish them as some of today’s brightest stars – before their 40th birthday.

Foster Specialty Floors, a sports floor contracting company, was established in 1924 by Jordan Foster’s great grandfather, C.G. Foster. While he’s the fourth generation owner now, he started in the family business at age 13, working in the warehouse during the summers. He then moved into deliveries and installations throughout the next decade while attending school, ultimately earning a degree in marketing from the University of Michigan. In 2009, Foster went full-time, building a customer base that includes the University of Michigan and Michigan State University basketball programs. Jordan is the Chairman of the Young Professional Council for the Maple Flooring Manufacturers Association (MFMA). Through his company, he oversaw donations to replace the gym floor at Spain Elementary in Detroit, as well as donating and installing flooring at the Howell Teen Outreach Center. He and his company also donate to numerous local schools and organizations and participate in charity events to help fund athletic programs.
