Jay Lanier, regional sales director at Interface, and grandson of Interface Founder, Ray C. Anderson, has received the 2023 Interface Sustainability and Sales Award, awarded at  Interface's Sales & Marketing Meeting.

The honor was presented by John A. Lanier, executive director of the Ray C. Anderson Foundation, who is also Jay's brother.

As part of the award, Jay was given the chance to award a grant to a nonprofit organization of his choice. He has chosen to direct his grant to the Carbon Leadership Forum.

The Carbon Leadership Forum's mission is to eliminate embodied carbon in buildings, materials, and infrastructure to create a just and thriving future.

Jay is a member of the Foundation's NextGen Committee, made up of Ray's five grandchildren and their spouses. The NextGen Committee meets regularly and takes an active role in perpetuating Ray's legacy by investing in projects geared to making the world a better place for Tomorrow's Children.

Congratulations Jay!
