Sasha Kozinsky

Profile: “I started in the Flooring Industry in 2003 after returning from the UK. On returning from the UK I was aware of how popular Laminate flooring had become in Europe. Hence, I purchased the Inovar Sandton franchise who are suppliers and installers of all FINfloor/INOVAR Laminate, Vinyl and Solid Engineered products. Inovar Sandton affiliated with SAWLFA as retailer and the installation teams became the first teams to pass as master accredited installers. During this time I became part of the SAWLFA executive team. An opportunity arouse to become part of FINfloor in 2013 who are the national importers of Laminate, Vinyl and Engineered flooring. During this time, I became more involved within SAWLFA and have been the Vice Chairman for the past 3 years.”
