Tim Cogghe - Participant 2021-2022

“The most invaluable aspect of joining the Prince Albert Fund community is the opportunity you get to connect with interesting and impactful people.”


As a Strategic Project Manager, Tim was directly involved in shaping and executing Unilin Brazil’s strategic expansion plan. Tim’s main assignment was to develop and launch Unilin’s new collection of Quick-Step vinyl floors for the Latin American market.


Tim oversaw the complete development, importation, and successful launch of this new product at an important local trade show. He also contributed to the sales expansion in several regions and was able to identify new suppliers for key raw materials.

How he benefited

The Prince Albert Fund played a significant role in shaping Tim’s professional development by encouraging a shift from a fast-paced mindset to one that values reflection and creative problem-solving. “The most significant professional change was moving from a restructuring-driven commoditized industry to an entrepreneurial company”, Tim explains.

The company – Unilin

Unilin Group, which was founded in Belgium in the 1960s, is an international reference in interior design and construction industry solutions. The company has a workforce of 8,200 employees in more than 100 locations and engineers, manufactures and market smart solutions for floor covering, panel and insulation material. Within its five divisions, the company produces laminate floors, engineered wood, vinyl floors, boards, decorative panels, finished products, roofing elements and insulation panels. Unilin Group is also a subsidiary of Mohawk Industries, Inc., the world’s largest flooring company.

Tim was a valuable asset to the local team as we implemented our 2021 strategy. He exceeded his initial objectives and was able to develop and launch a full range of LVT (vinyl tiles) that was highly praised by customers at the local Revestir flooring trade show.”
