D&B’s Harold Yarborough Recognized at National Tile Industry Conference Last Month
Harold Yarborough, CEO and President of D&B Tile Distributors was inducted into the Hall of Fame of the Ceramic Tile Distributors Association (CTDA) meeting last month in Indian Wells, CA. The ceremony took place during the Total Solutions Plus Management Conference which meets annually to bring the ceramic tile industry together to network and learn from each other. Distributors, manufacturers, contractors and more come together to listen to motivational, relevant speakers and participate in education sessions taught by the best in the industry.
A major objective of the group is to provide continuing education and training for the tile industry. Harold’s father Dave Yarborough was one of the earliest members of the CTDA and was also inducted into the Hall of Fame. His sister Cindy served on the board and is a past president. During his time with the organization, Harold has served on every committee within the group and chaired the membership and marketing committees. His induction into the CTDA Hall of Fame recognizes a lifetime of commitment to the goals and objectives of the organization and a dedication to the industry. He was inducted by CTDA President Tom Kotel.
“I joined the family business in 1974. I must admit that I was not thrilled about the prospect of shoveling sand and mixing mud but I came to literally fall in love with this business and the people who work in it.
“The tile industry is my passion. My team is very dear to me as are the friends I have met through the association. It is truly an honor to be involved by this group and to be recognized by them. You have to engage in what you do and give it all you can. This business involves art and fashion and provides a foundation for a beautiful product. Thanks to my mom and dad and my sister Cindy and also thank all of you for this recognition. The most important person in my career has been my wife for over 37 years, Vikki Yarborough. Without her continuous friendship, love and support I couldn’t have been the success I am today.”
