Home News TCNA's Tile Person of the Year awarded to Donato Grosser

Anderson, S.C. —Tile Council of North America (TCNA) presented its prestigious Tile Person of the Year award to Donato Grosser at Total Solutions Plus 2014 in San Antonio, Texas. The award is presented annually to an individual who made transformative changes to the North American tile industry.

Grosser is the founder and president of D. Grosser and Associates in New York. His efforts led to the first large scale tile exposition open to all, bringing specifiers, distributors, retailers, installers and more to an international tile exhibition. This quickly led to the international tile industry partnership known today as Coverings, which celebrated its 25 years of success this year.

According to TCNA executive director Eric Astrachan, “Mr. Grosser is a scholar whose vision and quiet but massive efforts over 40 years have had a transformative effect on the North American tile industry; additionally, through Coverings, funding for the promotion of tile and industry standards work has been possible.”
