He added: “I remember the excitement, forty-two years ago, when l came to work with my father, mother and brother Henry at Laticrete, a 100% family owned business. Now, as Chairman, I see the same focused enthusiasm in Patrick and am delighted that together, we will ensure continuity of our culture and values, while he takes our innovation, customer centricity and globalization to the next level. I am confident that Patrick will effectively take up the mantle begun with my parents, and transition seamlessly into his new role propelling Laticrete forward.”
