CHARLOTTE, NC., October 10, 2023 –
Bonitz Inc., a leading specialty trade commercial contractor providing solutions in flooring, ceilings, wall systems, specialty products, and cleaning and maintenance, has named Ron Lutwiller president of the company. Lutwiller, who is currently the company’s senior vice president of operations, will succeed Pete Larmore, who will retire later this year.
“The Bonitz board of directors conducted a six-month, nationwide search for a new president,” said Louise Slater, a Bonitz board member and the daughter of Bonitz founder Bill Rogers. “In the end, it was clear that Ron Lutwiller was best suited to lead Bonitz thanks to his understanding of Bonitz and its business, his exceptional skill set, and his excellent relationship with the members of the Bonitz team. He will have the full support of the Bonitz board as he takes the company to even higher levels of success in the years ahead.”
Lutwiller joined Bonitz in May 2020 as a senior vice president of operations, responsible for operations and sales at four Bonitz locations throughout the Southeast. In May of this year, his operations role was significantly expanded, and he became accountable for, among other things, profit and loss, project management, and talent acquisition and development for all Bonitz divisions and operations. Larmore began his career with Bonitz in November 1986 in a sales role with the company’s Flooring Group, where he held several executive positions of increasing responsibility over time. He was named president and CEO of Bonitz in January 2017.
“Pete Larmore has made an incredible contribution over more than three decades to building Bonitz into the successful business that it is today,” said Slater. “For that, members of the Bonitz team past and present, including the board of directors, owe him a debt of gratitude and wish him and his family good health and much happiness in the future.”
