Randy Byrd and Derrick Simons are co-owners and close personal friends. More than a decade ago, they decided to merge their two talents and purchase a flooring business. Together, they oversee all phases of the operation, which includes sales & design, purchasing, bookkeeping, estimates, merchandising, and warehousing. Their respective careers and experience have instilled in both of them the ability and strong desire to fulfill their slogan of “Quality & Service you can DEPEND upon.” They also employ multiple crews of flooring professionals and subcontractors to provide installation services.

Color Tile is involved with the Charlotte County Chamber of Commerce, North Port Chamber of Commerce, and Charlotte Desoto Building Industry Association (affiliated with the Florida Home Builders Association FHBA and National Association of Home Builders). In addition, they have been involved with local networking groups where they were able to meet qualified contractors in other disciplines that they now routinely refer out to customers as a courtesy.
