“This means I can deliver architects and specifiers with a bespoke, problem solving service that provides a complete solution to meet their needs.

“It’s a hugely diverse role that I’m really excited about. Tarkett has a lot to shout about and I’m looking forward to being to the one to do it.”

Stephen Kemp has joined Tarkett as Regional Sales Manager for the North, overseeing a team covering the East Midlands, Scotland, Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland.
