Jim Cuthbertson, a lifelong Florida Tile executive, passed away August 6 after a short battle with bone cancer. He began his lifelong career with Florida Tile inJim February 1968. From the factory to the corporate office, Jim worked in and across many departments during his tenure, including Production Supervisor, Plant Manager, Vice President of Ceramic Centers, Directors of Marketing and Customer Service to Vice President of Sales and Marketing.
His dedicated staff and many customers and colleagues say they will remember him for his attention to detail and his loyalty to Florida Tile. "Jim was a constant and sturdy figure in the name of the company, Florida Tile notes. "Even through turbulent times, like the death of Jimmy Sikes and the many changes in ownership, customers could always be calmed by his kind words and ever-presence."
 

Taking a semi-retirement in 2009, he and wife Brenda moved to Utah to be closer to their sons. Jim was a mentor, colleague, and most of all, a friend to the many individuals whose paths he crossed and will be truly missed by all at Florida Tile. "This is a great loss to all of us here at Florida Tile and the entire tile industry," said the company.
