Patrick Millot

Bethany, Conn.—Laticrete, a leading manufacturer of flooring solutions, has named Patrick Millot as its chief executive officer. Millot succeeds David A. Rothberg, who continues as chairman of the board. Millot will join Laticrete on August 10, 2020 from the Fortune Global 500 company, Saint-Gobain, a manufacturer of high-performance materials and building products.

“Patrick comes to us after a successful career in manufacturing and omni-channel distribution for the industrial and construction industries,” said Rothberg. “Patrick’s experience running a larger, globalized business will be a booster rocket to accelerate all of the wonderful work done to date at Laticrete. 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.”

Millot will be supported by the existing Laticrete corporate leadership team, who will now report to him. “I very much look forward to working with Patrick,” said Edward Metcalf, Laticrete president for North America. “It is a prime opportunity to reassess and prioritize opportunities within our businesses to provide our clients more and better tools for use in a fast-changing business environment.”

Erno de Bruijn, president and chief operating officer of the Laticrete International Division added, “I look forward to partnering with Patrick and leveraging his broad international experience to accelerate the execution of our vision.”

Millot most recently served as CEO of Abrasives and Composites Systems at Saint-Gobain. In this position, he led a division overseeing 12,300 employees from 88 sites in 30 countries. Before being promoted to Systems CEO, Millot served as president of the ceramic division, and previously as vice president of corporate planning, strategy and finance of the high performance materials sector. He started his 24-year career at Saint-Gobain in finance and strategy before being promoted to general manager of the reinforcement division.

“I am thrilled and honored by this opportunity,” said Millot. “Laticrete is a wonderful success story and a great global company with a leading brand in construction.”
