Chris Moline, LEED AP @webmindset + @LEEDtheWay & author of “The Social Media Equation”
There are a few things most people do not know about Chris beyond his role as Residential Group Manager with Commercial Carpets of America/Carpet One in Alexandria, Virginia. Chris is a former active-duty Marine (MOS 0351 Combat Assaultman) and also has a Bachelor of Arts in journalism from the University of Maryland at College Park. He speaks four languages (English, Spanish, German and Farsi).
When he’s not making things happen in the sustainable flooring market in the DC area, or speaking on the importance of social media in business… he’s skydiving, taking Brazilian jiu jitsu classes with his 10-year-old son, or playing his classical or 12-string guitar.
Recently, Chris was chosen as one of the judges for Floor Covering Weekly’s “Green Step Awards” because of his passion for “green” flooring. He was also the first in his current company to achieve LEED AP (CI) status from the US Green Building Council.
Chris enjoys talking and writing about green topics and has been published in several trade publications as well as having been called upon as a source of information by journalists writing articles on everything from LEED accreditation to “greenwashing.”
Chris’ main passion at the office is using the internet to leverage success for the retail team. With multiple websites, Facebook page, Twitter and this blog, the team of sales professionals are able to help a broader range of clients across the region.
