Jeff Lorberbaum, chairman and chief executive officer of Mohawk Industries, was inducted into the World Floor Covering Association’s Hall of Fame during a special ceremony at The International Surface Event in Las Vegas on Jan. 31.
Lorberbaum becomes only the 47th inductee since the Hall was established in 1992.
He will be joining a distinguished list of industry pioneers and transformational leaders in the Hall of Fame, including his parents, Shirley (inducted in 2003) and Alan (inducted in 2007), who founded Aladdin Mills in 1957.
Aladdin Mills merged with Mohawk Industries in 1994, and Lorberbaum became the company’s CEO in 2001. During the past 20 years, Lorberbaum’s leadership transformed Mohawk from a niche U.S. carpet manufacturer to the world’s largest flooring company with sales in more than 160 countries, currently ranked 311 on the Fortune 500.
