The Board of Directors at Bentley Prince Street appointed Ralph Grogan as president and CEO of the company, effective immediately, less than one week after announcing the resignation of former president and CEO, Anthony Minite. Interim CEO Mac Bridger will relinquish his temporary post but remain an active Board member.
Most recently, Grogan served as Vice President of Business Development and Strategy for Antron, the carpet fiber brand of Invista Surfaces, where he was responsible for sales, marketing, and growth of the brand worldwide. Prior to his time with Antron, Grogan was chief operations officer of Tandus Flooring, where he successfully integrated the company’s three brands; C&A Floorcoverings, Crossley Carpet Mills, and Monterey Carpets. He also served as President of Monterey Carpets, President of Burlington House Floor Accents, and Vice President and general manager of Lees Carpets.
“Ralph Grogan is a talented, proven executive who will provide renewed leadership for Bentley Prince Street as we implement an aggressive growth strategy that will strengthen the core markets for the company and expand its iconic brand into new markets throughout the U.S. and world,” Bridger says, citing Grogan’s role with Tandus and long-term relationships with major flooring contractors as major drivers of the Board’s nomination decision.
“Bentley’s leadership in broadloom innovation will continue,” Grogan says. “However, we will greatly expand our carpet tile offerings and make them more attractive for traditional end markets that are essential to driving growth for the company.”
