Home News Barbagallo joins Laticrete

Bethany, Conn.—Dave Barbagallo has joined Laticrete as training coordinator and technical services representative. In his new role Barbagallo will primarily be in charge of the planning and execution of continuous training sessions and demonstrations throughout the year. He will also work closely with the rest of the technical services team in recommending certain materials and methods for specific applications of tile and stone, as well as assisting with troubleshooting projects in the field.

He joins Laticrete after nearly 20 years working directly in the flooring business. Positions in customer service, retails sales, and as the owner of a tile and stone installation business for the last 13 years, has provided him with a broad range of experiences in the industry. With Laticrete, he will utilize classroom instruction and hands-on demonstrations, particularly in a two-day seminar, “Profit through knowledge,” which covers a broad range of topics from product performance requirements to industry standards, while providing a complete overview of Laticrete materials and methods for permanent installation of tile and stone.

“What I’ve noticed is that Laticrete doesn’t just try and sell products; they sell the entire package,” Barbagallos said. “They do tons of consulting and try to educate people. I think the customers like that. The customers see the company really cares about them.”
