As a son of the founder’s Dave and Betty Yarborough I am one of four children born into the Tile business. My sister Cindy is part of the D&B ownership and heads up training, my Brother Bill and sister Bettyann are in the tile industry as well in Texas. I grew up working in my father’s contracting business, “Dave’s Tiling Service”. There after finishing high school and giving a try at college my father needed someone to take over his long standing successful tile contracting business. My mother and father were too busy growing D&B Tile Distributors so they turned the contracting business over to me. I ran the installation business for 18 years until the time my father needed me to step into D&B Tile. Stepping out from Dave’s Tiling Service into D&B Tile I decided to close the installation business. My father is a great mentor to me and the entire management team. We are successful due to his leadership. Our Company supports and is involved in many associations related to our industry due to my parent’s contribution in continuing to keep D&B Tile growing.
I have been married to my wife Vikki since 1978 and have two sons: Justin, who is a Police officer for the City of Sunrise and my younger son Zackery who works for Disney. I have served as Chairman for the Associated Builders and Contractor’s local chapter in 1991. Actively, I served as a committee chairman and board member for 10 years with the Ceramic Tile Distributor’s Association. Currently I serve on the Board of Directors for the Ceramic Tile Education Foundation. I am proud and privileged to keep the legacy of my parents going for D&B Tile.
