Cosentino North America Announces New CEO

December 07, 2010

Cosentino has appointed Eduardo Cosentino (pictured) as the new CEO for Cosentino North America, which has been under the leadership of founder Roberto Contreras, Jr., since its inception in the U.S. more than 12 years ago. The Cosentino Group acquired full ownership of Cosentino North America at the end of 2009.

“Roberto has been key to the success of Cosentino in North America, and we’re forever grateful for his contributions,” said Francisco Cosentino, president of the Cosentino Group. “He’s been a true partner whom we respect, appreciate and will forever maintain contact with.”   

In 1996, Contreras and Cosentino first opened Cosentino North America as a joint partnership. Contreras said, “I’m extremely proud of the accomplishments made with Cosentino and feel confident that, under Eduardo’s leadership, they will reach a new level of success.”

Eduardo Cosentino has served as the corporate sales director for the Cosentino Group for seven years, overseeing sales and marketing efforts across the world, including North and Latin America, Asia, the Middle East and Europe. His responsibility to the company's executive committee has allowed him to acquire experience in the aspects of design and implementation of business strategies.

“This is a very exciting time for a global company like ours as we focus on developing the U.S. market,” said Eduardo Cosentino. “We are confident that with the experience of our U.S. leadership team, our production capacity and our strategic business model, we will continue to be a leader in the kitchen and bath surfacing market.”

Cosentino, with its current count of more than 650 U.S. employees, runs and operates 13 distribution centers and 12 fabrication shops across the United States, and markets its products through a network of about three thousand independent stone fabricators. Expansion plans in the United States include the opening of Cosentino Centers, which are designed to support, promote, and educate trade professionals.

Eduardo Cosentino is currently fully engaged with the U.S. leadership team and plans to continue supporting the efforts of improving the customer experience, delivering a quality product and increasing consumer demand. He will be attending the Cosentino 100 Conference on January 30, 2011, where he will address the companies’ top 100 customers and share his long-term plan of expansion.
