Parkside Strengthens Team

Parkside has strengthened its team with the appointment of three experienced specification consultants.

As it continues growth in the commercial tile market, Parkside is welcoming four new team members ready to work with architects, contractors, interior designers and developers across the United Kingdom. 

James Journet, sales design director, comments; “We’re delighted to be welcoming the experience of Lauren, Jess and James to the Parkside family. Each brings with them great expertise and understanding in their specialist field and will undoubtedly help us to provide exceptional service as we continue to grow.”

Lauren Riley joins Parkside to support large architectural projects. Spending the last 15-years at vinyl flooring company Altro, Lauren is a familiar figure in the London architecture and design community and is highly active in social and networking activities within the Clerkenwell district. 

Jess Caro will work with Lauren to support large architectural projects. Coming to Parkside from her previous position at Altro, Jess has a keen interest in sustainability and writes her on blog on the topic. With further experience at Gerflor, Ceragres and a specialised profiles and trims company, Jess’ technical knowledge of finish specifications is second to none. 

Joining from Topps Tiles where he was part of the contracts team, James Saunders will be assisting architects, contractors and developers across London and the South East. James was formerly an area manager for the region and his understanding of the Parkside tile portfolio and services will ensure customers are well serviced.

These new appointments underline Parkside’s commitment to growth by providing the UK tile specification industry with unrivalled range, custom design, unique product sourcing, specialist services and support from a growing team.
