Chad Warthan

Territory Manager 

Located in the Austin office, Chad Warthan covers Central Texas as a Territory Manager. He travels from Waco to San Antonio and into the Hill Country.  He handles both sport and commercial flooring projects throughout these areas; with 20 years of experience in the industry and often referred to as the “Floor Guy”, Chad is an expert in his field.  Working closely with management, estimating, and project managers at Vector on a daily basis, Chad ensures that his projects run smoothly from start to finish.  When Vector decided to grow the Central Texas market, Chad was excited to come aboard such a first class company and sell products from the best flooring manufactures in the business.

In his personal time, Chad enjoys Hot Rods, weightlifting, and anything outdoors (especially in the Hill Country). He keeps up with his 3 boys, Colin, Cayden and Colsen while trying to remember where in the world his Flight Attendant wife, Hilary, might be.

Erin Bickle

Territory Manager 

Erin Bickle is the West Texas Territory Manager for the Vector Sports Team. On any given day, Erin can be spotted driving for miles across the West Texas flatlands, dodging tumbleweeds. She provides flooring services to the A&D community, General Contractors and end users, with a primary focus on K-12 education as well as Gerflor Sports Flooring. Born and raised in the Texas Panhandle, in the tiny town of Gruver, Erin is well-acquainted with working and living in an area where “everybody knows everybody”.

With a degree in Interior Design and a 14 year history selling commercial furniture, Erin can definitely speak the language of the design industry. Because of her vivacious energy, quick wit and strong work ethic, a challenging career in sales comes naturally. Erin’s motto is “No matter how you feel…get up, dress up, show up and never give up!”

Living in Lubbock with her husband Mike and 3 beautiful daughters, Erin spends her spare time working on DIY projects around the house, planning the next renovation before the last one is even finished. She hates shopping and prides herself on never paying retail for anything, which is why 80% of her wardrobe comes from consignment stores.
