Floyd was only shown once from behind. He is a fair skinned man with a short crop of silver hair similar to his children that is combed back. He was seen wearing a business suit.
According to both of his children, Floyd himself is highly amoral, materialistic and perhaps even outright evil, this is seen where he had raised both of his children to be arms dealers since they were young in order to use them to make profit and has stated to never be satisfied with any of his projects only until it begins making profit. Further alluding to his immense materialism and greed.
Floyd himself has also been implied to be highly secretive and has been stated to be a difficult person to understand and get a read on, this is seen where where Chiquita, despite having spent years as his bodyguard, was unable to truly understand his motivations or his reasons for his actions.
Despite these faults however, it has been implied that like his son and daughter, Floyd possess immense charisma and intelligence that cause people to be follow him despite these faults. His intelligence and cunning is seen during the incident regarding the Outspoken Doctors for Human Rights, where Koko instantly realized that Floyd had long since anticipated the reaction of the Balkan Dragons to the doctors entry into their country and took full advantage of it in order to put the CIA in his debt, callously manipulating and putting his daughter, her body guards and the doctors, in danger in order to gain further pull with the US government.
Not much is revealed about Floyd's background and he remains a shadowy figure throughout the series, playing an indirect role. What is known is that due to the nature of their father's work, both Kasper and Koko were born at sea on a cargo ship but their mother was never mentioned otherwise. They were both groomed at an early age to participate in HCLI's business, as Koko is shown to have already been involved in the arms trade and been accompanied by bodyguards since she was a teenager.. Both Lehm and Chiquita were Floyd's bodyguards before working for his children in the same role.
The SR Unit had previously blocked Floyd from expanding into Southeast Asia, which Kasper later heard about when he came up against them.
When Koko tried to deny Pollack's request for a replacement radar, Curry suggested that her position as both Floyd's daughter and a member of the Europe/Africa Weapons Transport Division did give her the capability to get one if she wished. Despite refusing again and a brief standoff that ensued when Pollack tried to intimidate her, she pretended to agree to the order while plotting to escape a certain Eastern European country.

Navy to help with Dragan's capture before wishing her good luck.
