A Talk With Eduardo Cosentino

Eduardo Cosentino’s tenure as the Second Vice President of the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce and CEO of Cosentino North America since 2010 has been nothing short of transformative. In a recent interview, he delves into the exhilarating experience of spearheading the company’s exponential growth, particularly in the United States market, and reflects on Cosentino’s current prominence in the country. “When I took on the role in 2010, Cosentino was in a vastly different place,” Eduardo reminisces. “We had only eight distribution centers and twelve manufacturing workshops.


But over the past fourteen years, it’s been an exhilarating journey of expansion and transformation.” Under Eduardo’s leadership, Cosentino has flourished, witnessing a rapid proliferation from eight to forty-eight Cosentino Centers across North America. This growth, he emphasizes, wouldn’t have been possible without building a stellar team and navigating the challenges of evolving business models.


“Our success in international markets, especially in the United States, boils down to two key factors,” Eduardo asserts. “Firstly, believing in ourselves as a company and recognizing our potential on the global stage. Secondly, having the right people in place in each market. It’s these individuals who truly make the difference.” Currently, the United States and Canada account for over 50% of Cosentino’s revenue, solidifying their status as key markets. Looking ahead to 2024, Eduardo reveals ambitious expansion plans, with a focus on reinforcing their presence in North America and Europe, alongside strategic openings in emerging markets like Peru and South Korea. Moreover, Eduardo’s recent appointment as Second Vice President of the Spain-US Chamber of Commerce underscores his commitment to fostering international partnerships and facilitating Spanish companies’ entry into the American market. This new role presents exciting opportunities to leverage his expertise and further Cosentino’s global reach.


“As we look to the future, the sky’s the limit for Cosentino,” Eduardo concludes. “We’re not just leaders in kitchen countertops; we see immense potential in expanding into new applications like bathroom solutions and facade applications. With our innovative products and unwavering dedication, there’s no telling where we’ll go next.” 


In summary, Eduardo Cosentino’s leadership has propelled Cosentino to unparalleled heights, showcasing the company’s adaptability, innovation, and relentless pursuit of excellence. With a clear vision and strategic direction, Cosentino continues to redefine the boundaries of success in the global surfacing industry.
