Bob & Pete's Floors Meet the Team
Get to know the names and the faces that help make Bob & Pete's Floors so special.
Bob and Pete’s Floors is comprised of a team of flooring professionals who are passionate about what they do. Our team has decades of experience and a diversity of skills that range from interior design to flooring trends to custom installation and countertops. Our entire staff continually learns through education, experience, and relationships, allowing us to deliver the best possible end result for our customers.
Bob has owned Bob & Pete's Floors since 1993 and is viewed by his peers as a true leader and mentor in the industry. He is dedicated to providing a great customer experience for our clients and creating a family atmosphere for the employees and installers. His hands-on involvement in all aspects of the business is a major strength of the business, with his primary focus on sales and estimation. Bob’s forward-thinking vision keeps the store a step ahead of the ever-evolving industry changes. Outside the store, Bob is heavily involved with his family — attending and coaching his three daughters in basketball and softball has been his love and passion. He serves on various local community and school committees and graciously gives his time back to the local community. Bob is married to his wife, Marti, who he quickly admits is the rock of his life and allows him to do all he does.
Her first interaction with Bob & Pete’s was as a customer for six years before working for them, and she always felt Bob & Pete’s employees were the “definition” of customer service. When the opportunity arose in June 2010, she started out as a Design Coordinator and then as a Sales Manager in 2012. Pat got her design education at the Art Institute of Pittsburgh. In 2014 and again in 2023, she was recognized as Salesperson of the Year by Carpets Plus COLORTILE at their annual convention. Pat’s life’s highlight is the time spent with her children and grandchildren. She lives at the lake and loves boating and amateur horticulture of her plants, inside and outside her home.
With more than 30 years of interior design experience, Dawn is one of the most notable design coordinators at Bob & Pete’s Floors. She brings her discerning eye for color, knowledge of design elements, and a rich tapestry of experience to share with clients and their design projects — all while working within budget parameters. Dawn’s focus and passion is to ensure her clients are comfortable with their choices and enjoy their remodeling experience. Dawn’s interests include boating, photography, and traveling with her husband and family.
Tami was hired to fill a place between the sales and service department. She applies her skills and experience in administration, organization and communication to the processing of sales. She uses her keen attention to details, and ability to follow up loose ends to reviewing quotes, scheduling appointments and checking sales. Tami has a healthy sense of humor and enjoys assisting wherever needed to provide customer service to clients and co-workers. Tami earned a BA in Communication Arts from Eastern Nazarene College in Boston, MA.
Cindi has more than 60 years of life experience. She has worked at Bob and Pete’s Floors since 2015 but has been one of our customers since 2000. Her role as Sales Assistant means she works directly with our Design Coordinators, Service Team, and Guests to provide the best experience for everyone who walks through our doors. Cindi brings a strong work ethic to her position, along with a desire to provide the best customer service. Additionally, she brings her unique sense of humor, enjoyable personality, and, according to her, the need to prove that “old dogs can learn new tricks!” Her hobbies outside of work include reading, tending to her yard and flowers, and, surprisingly or not, working on her budding career as a rapper.
Finance & Operations Manager
Michael started as the Finance and Operations Manager in October of 2021.

Michelle’s vibrant personality, beautiful smile, and impeccable customer service skills all add to the light she brings to our day, as well as yours. On her days off, you can find her spending time with her husband and two handsome little sons. They enjoy camping, hiking, and just being outside...of course, with their lovable fur babies.

From scheduling our installation crews to being the liaison from sale to installation, she manages the tasks at hand, so the end result is your perfect floor.

When she is not at our store, she is spending family time fishing, boating, scrapbooking, and always wanting to decorate for Christmas (her favorite holiday). Her husband and two sons are her world outside of work.

John has taken on various roles at Bob & Pete’s since starting out in 2006.

John and his wife, Jennifer, live in Massillon (Tuslaw) with their two children, Jonathan and Jacy.
