Julian Clarke – Business Development Manager – Midlands 07967 338364
Julian started in the commercial flooring trade about 35 years ago covering all products and applications during an eleven-year period in distribution. It was an excellent foundation to learn about all the products and the companies within the trade. He then moved onto work as a contracts manager for a large and well-respected flooring contractor for a short time in Birmingham, running a team of fitters before getting into a specification role for Heckmondwike FB Ltd, where he predominantly worked within the public sector managing successful PFI and PPP projects.
Working throughout the Midlands and Northern Ireland dealing with Architects, Local Authorities, Main Contractors and Sub Contractors, Julian started a specification at ARDEX for 6 years being heavily involved in the McDonald’s national refurbishment contract. He then moved back into sales for a commercial soft flooring manufacturer for nearly 10 years with the aim to set up a specification team that sadly did not materialise. Julian re-joined ARDEX UK this year as part of the Business Development Team, saying it was fantastic to be back with a company that really are seen as quality solution providers throughout the flooring, tiling and construction industry.
