Managing Director

Nick Braybrooke

Nick Braybrooke

I have been in the tile industry for 34 years and for what seems a lifetime having joined the company from Williams & Glyn Bank. In that time I have seen many changes especially in technology and I honestly believe tiles are the perfect finish to transform a room and yet retain all the practical requirements. In 2002 I bought the company and have continued to work as owner and director with a fantastic team of people who have played a huge part in helping to develop and grow the business based on the values of the high quality products, fair pricing, unrivalled customer service and providing a rewarding, enjoyable and secure place to work. My wife Lynda and I have been married for 27 years, we have two children and two dogs and apart from spending time with them I enjoy getting out on the road on my bike, hitting the free weights at the gym, reading non-fiction, travel, music and socialising with friends over a bottle of wine.

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.

Bob

Warehouse & Distribution Manager

I have been with the company for nearly 20 years, having taken a year out in the middle for travelling. In my time I have seen the company move premises twice to expand the business. I started out as a junior warehouseman and then became warehouse supervisor. I then took the role as stock controller and then finally warehouse and distribution manager. Our aim is to deliver high standards of tiles and adhesives as efficiently and well presented as possible on time. Outside of work I enjoy playing football, drinking and travelling.

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.

Drivers

We have 5 HGV qualified drivers within the company who bring a wealth of experience to their daily routes. Their names are Richard, Norman, John, Glenn and Trevor you will see them happily driving around the roads delivering to our many customers as well as our own outlets. They are all very customer focused and where possible will go that extra mile to help with requests. The professional approach shown by these 5 individuals has allowed our delivery service to grow every year and our fleet has also grown to reflect the company growth. These five drivers are, for some of our customers, the face of the company and the last part of a long chain which started with visiting our showrooms to see the tiles; With this in mind, it is important that they leave a pleasant, lasting impression which they always achieve without fail.

Account Management

James

James

Account Manager (Housebuilder)

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. I love dealing with the housebuilders and developers in the region and taking projects from the initial chat up to seeing the visions completed whether it be a single refurbished property or a site containing hundreds of plots. Those that I’ve dealt with over the years know I pride myself on offering a personal and dedicated, trustworthy service. I will always try and go the extra mile for my customers. 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. 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’ve just got back from trekking in the rainforest in Borneo). Finally, I’m about to embark on a large extension to my own home, I’ve no idea how I’m going to choose which tiles I’m going to use!

Senior Manager-Retail Division

I have been working for the company for 12 years and have seen the many changes tiles have made, one thing I have always been sure of is that we have always been on top of the latest trends and fashions whilst still having the traditional options available. I pride myself on finding exactly what you are looking for, whatever it takes. I'm happy to spend as much time needed to make sure you are completely satisfied with your selection and choosing the all-important finishing touches. I am able to offer up some great ideas as to how to display the tiles in a way that you may not have even thought about. So, if you are looking for just a few tiles or tiling your whole house we will find the right product together and enjoy the whole experience.
