Victor Palma, Showroom Sales Representative
Dedicated, hard working, and enthusiastic are words that come to mind when thinking of Victor Palma. Charming, playful and loving are also adjectives that properly describe Victor. Victor’s experience and knowledge of rugs was acquired from his 7 years of employment at Stark Carpet. Victor is happy to be part of the Tufenkian Team and looks forward to working with you to find that perfect carpet for whatever your current project may be. Outside of being interested in luxurious interior design, Victor’s favorite hobby is bicycling. His most recent accomplishment was on May 1, 2016 where he completed a 62 mile ride with 4,000 feet of incline for The Tour de Cure American Diabetes Association. He met his fundraising goal and continues to ride for other fundraising bike events. Victor steps up to the challenge whether on a bike or in the showroom!
