Glen Morrison will be joining Tarkett North America as president and CEO, effective May 4. He will succeed Jeff Buttitta who, as planned, is retiring from this position.
Morrison has spent the majority of his career in the building and construction industry, working both in the United-States and Europe. He joins Tarkett from Alcoa, a global lightweight metals leader, where he served as president of the $1 billion Building and Construction Systems (BCS) business, with 3,200 people in 12 countries.
Under Morrison’s leadership, Alcoa BCS built a strong track record of performance, growing three times faster than the combined North American and European market through a combination of innovation and operational excellence.
Morrison will be a member of the Tarkett Executive Committee, based out of Tarkett’s North American Headquarters in Solon, Ohio. Buttitta is appointed senior strategy advisor for North America and will remain a member of the Tarkett Executive Committee.
During these past several years, Buttitta led the reorganization of the North America hard surface business, the acquisition and integration of Tandus Centiva into Tarkett, and has brought enhanced recognition to the Tarkett brand in this region.
