Bob Pitman, Former Burke Rubber Pres., Honored by Mannington
Chattanooga, TN, July 15, 2019-At Mannington’s biennial meeting of the family leadership group in Chattanooga, Tennessee, a special honor was presented to Bob Pitman, former president of Mannington’s Burke Rubber division.
Pitman retired from the position in May 2019. Pitman, who is known for his sense of humor, recounted the story of Keith Campbell's inquiry, "How many people work at Burke Industries?" during the due dillegence process when Mannington was purchasing Burke, to which Pitman answered, "About half of them."
Mannington acquired Burke in 2008, and Pitman, who was CEO, continued to lead that division until his retirement.
