Read the press release about the transition.
On the eve of the announcement about the changing of the guard, TileLetter sat down with outgoing LATICRETE President and COO Ed Metcalf, and incoming President Ron Nash to gain insight from these two leaders as they look back over their careers and look into the future. This change in leadership at LATICRETE is more than simple succession planning; it is a retooling of the company to enable it to be a sleek, responsive, family-style business that gets out in front of changes in the industry and enables the company, its partners and its customers to ride the wave to success.
Learn about the priorities of our team during this transition in the TileLetter interview.
