"I have been involved in the tile industry for 19 years’ now; beginning my career as a trainee for an Italian tile firm working in London, Italy, France and Germany; continuing to join WB Simpsons London managing high end commercial tiling projects including Canary Wharf banking sector, Heathrow airport, Gatwick airport, Jubilee underground extension, Royal Academy of Art and Drama college...followed by 5 years in the Residential market managing a team of tillers working with architects and designers in high end luxury interiors of Knightsbridge and Chelsea; before opening my own boutique tile shop in Omagh 2008.

I like to talk to my customers, on their designs or progress with projects; factories on new designs and technologies; architects on new upcoming projects; designers on specific tile and style requirements; tilers on the progress of live projects and design layouts, delivery men on schedules, etc………..all involved in the pursuit of great interior design!”To read the full article on Paul subscribe today to our magazine and receive 25% discount including access to all past issues.
