Meet Our Team


Peter Messner, President

Peter Messner is President of Messner Flooring and started at the company in 1977 as his dad Ben Messner’s first employee. The early days at the B.J. Messner Co. allowed Peter to develop many skills such as forklift operation, rug deliveries, commercial estimating, and project management. In the mid 80’s Peter took over the operations and back-office functions. In 1987, he purchased the company after his father’s untimely death, and today he manages the commercial company and operations at both the retail stores. The skills that Peter developed in his early years are still called upon on a daily basis.


Jack Messner, Vice President

Family and community make the job great, for Jack Messner, who joined the Messner Flooring team in 2008 as an apprentice to a commercial salesman. Jack grew up in this business and remembers crawling on the mountains of carpet pads as a little kid. Now he works in commercial sales doing project management and commercial estimating. Jack enjoys his work because it’s an ever-evolving industry, with materials, installation, and more always improving.


Ted Messner, Vice President

Ted Messner has worked for Messner Flooring on and off since 2003 and became a full-time employee in 2013.  He has handled both commercial bid work and negotiated work, also handling a lot of the nonprofit work.   He really enjoys working with long-term clients as it enables him to develop relationships over time. This brings greater understanding overall, and enables us to meet their needs as well as get to know them on a personal level.  When he is not in the office, you can find him hiking with his wife Candace, and their two dogs Mick and Maddy.


Lisa Mau, Business Manager

Lisa joined the Messner Flooring team in 2004, and handles everything from health plans to payroll. Lisa manages the office, pays bills, manages payroll, and handles additional HR responsibilities. Lisa helps the Messner Flooring team with health and life insurance, the IRA plan, and more. Lisa is proud to work for Messner Flooring. She says, “I’m glad we’re an ethical company, and that we put out a good product and do good work. I’m proud of our great reputation. And I enjoy helping our employees.”


Rick Morgan, Warehouse Manager

Rick is the reason your flooring is pre-inspected, and perfectly cut. Joining the Messner Flooring team in 2009, Rick manages all the inventory for both the commercial and retail sides of the business. When a customer orders flooring, it comes to Rick’s warehouse first and is checked out to make sure it’s correct and in perfect shape. His team also cuts all carpets to specific lengths for our installers right from the warehouse, making the installation of carpet more efficient for us and our customers. Rick enjoys being “quality control” and a bit of a traffic cop in the warehouse to make sure that quality and accuracy are on point.


John Barker, Commercial Project Manager

Jon started at the company in 1986 as an installer, and joined Messner Flooring full-time in 2008. In addition, his dad worked for Greg and Peter’s dad Ben Messner for 25 years! Messner doesn’t just “measure,” we assess. There’s a lot more to preparing to install a floor correctly than wielding a measuring tape. Jon earned his Master’s from CFI and uses that knowledge and expertise to make absolutely certain that everything has been anticipated for a new install. In addition, a big part of Jon’s job is going into homes and restretching carpet, fixing holes, and repairing seams on installations that other companies won’t stand by. Jon loves his job because every project is unique, every house has its own requirements and every day is different.


Doug Miller, Commercial Operations Manager

Doug has been our “Go To” man on the commercial side since joining the Messner team in 2014. He provides strong office and warehouse inventory support. We entrust him with all commercial submittals, order placements and billing. He also coordinates all our commercial install crews. His favorite thing about Messner is the collaboration that goes on within the organization and our partners in the field.


Erin, Commercial Sales Support & Interior Designer

Erin has been a lively addition to the Messner Flooring Team since summer 2021. With a background and degree in commercial Interior Design, she brings unique insights and ideas to the company. She jumps in on commercial projects assisting with measuring, estimating, and flooring selection. Our project managers rely on her for scopes and details of each job. Seeing the positive transformations in the community is what really drives and excites her.


Doug Bush, Commercial Project Manager


Andrew Sweats, Commercial Operations


James Negron, Warehouse Support / Deliveries

A proud member of our warehouse staff, James is our stain master. Supporting Rick, he keeps the warehouse organized and clean. He accurately cuts carpet and pad daily, for residential and commercial jobs. James has been working in the warehouse industry since 2005 and started with the Messner team in summer 2021. Occasionally making deliveries, James enjoys being able to make connections with our contractors and customers.
