David Rothberg, Chairman and CEO of Laticrete, has been selected as a semifinalist for an Entrepreneur Of The Year 2018 Award in the New York Region. The awards program, which is celebrating its 32nd year, recognizes entrepreneurs who excel in areas such as innovation, financial performance, and personal commitment to their business and community.

"David has successfully navigated the transition from the first to second generation while retaining the core values that enabled Laticrete to grow from its roots as a garage operation to a global player in construction materials,” said Edward Metcalf, Laticrete North America president and COO. “Building on the work of founders Henry M Rothberg, Ph.D., and Lillian Rosenstock Rothberg, David is actively engaged in paving the way for the third generation of this prototypical American success story.”

Since its inception, EY has been at the forefront of identifying game-changing business leaders and celebrating American ingenuity. New York Region winners will be announced at a gala event on June 12, and be considered alongside other regional winners for the Entrepreneur Of The Year National competition in the fall.
