Managing Director

Nick Braybrooke

Nick Braybrooke

I have worked in the tile industry for over 35 years and have seen many changes but one thing which doesn’t change is my belief that tiles are the perfect finish to transform the surfaces in your home to stunning effect. As the owner and working director of the business, I am fortunate to have a fantastic team of people who play a huge part in the company’s success, helping it evolve and keep up with the latest trends in the industry. This success is based on our values of Integrity, Professionalism, Customer Focus, Quality, Teamwork, Accountability and Respect to ensure we deliver high quality products fair pricing, unrivalled customer service and a rewarding, enjoyable and secure place to work. My wife Lynda and I have been married for over 30 years, we have two children and two dogs and apart from spending time with them I enjoy cycling, hitting the free weights at the gym, reading non-fiction, travel, music and socialising with friends.

During this time I have seen many changes to the company as it has continued to grow and I am grateful to have been given the opportunity and support to have experienced it all which in itself has helped me to grow and learn as an individual. I have a great team of people who I work closely with on a daily basis in Customer Support, Purchasing and Warehouse & Distribution, I thoroughly enjoy my work and the many challenges it brings there is still not a day goes by where I haven’t learnt something. Needless to say at the end of the day I look forward to a good walk with the dog and a large glass of wine whilst socialising with my friends over a good old fashioned dinner party.

Warehouse Team

The warehouse department consists of 7 people with Bob Bailey as Manager and Jason Scopes as Supervisor. The chief duties of the warehouse team are to load our own vehicles in the morning for deliveries, unloading external lorries and containers with the many products and ranges of tiles we stock here, checking in the products that arrive into us, picking orders ready for despatch the next day and also maintaining great stock accuracy by counting products on a weekly basis. The department takes pride in the work that they do by treating any customer order as though it was their own. We do hope you can see this when ordering your tiles with us.

Account Management

James

James

Head of Sales

I’ve been in the tile industry since 2007 and after all this time I’ve not only developed knowledge of the industry but also, more importantly, developed a passion for tiles, interiors and the building industry. When I started in the industry Ceramic Tiles Ltd was a supplier to the company I worked for. They were always a great company to deal with back then, the people and the service were everything. That hasn’t changed and was one of the main reasons I joined and really sets us apart from the competition - Our team is second-to-none & I’m really proud of them all. On top of that, the range and the quality of tiles available really is top drawer too. Outside of work I love my sports. My Saturday afternoons are spent playing cricket during the summer and refereeing local football leagues during the winter (Now I’m not playing as the old knees aren’t what they used to be!). I also love travelling and seeing new places and things with my wife. We have a young son, so we’re looking forward to the adventures he’ll come on with us in the future.

Having spent several years dealing with retail customers I understand the importance of patience, guidance and making the right choices. I bring these skills with me when dealing with independent retails, contractors and House Builders, always making sure their needs are met.
