Founded in 1962
Jordon O’Brien is honored to be the third generation owner of California Tile Installers, mentoring under his father, and co owner, Jack O’Brien. Jordon’s grandfather, Donald O’Brien, built our foundation off a humble beginning, a time when his office desk consisted of nothing more than doors on boxes with a bucket for his seat. From there, and over decades worth of devotion, CTI has achieved national recognition as leading experts in our trade.
California Tile is a family business, but one that doesn’t stop at ownership. We are proud to have multiple families working with us. Fathers alongside their sons. Mothers alongside their daughters. There are some who have worked for CTI over 20 years, dedicated individuals bringing with them a wealth of expertise. We have also welcomed a number of promising new hires. People who share our company values and beliefs in a progressive environment that supports equal opportunity.
