Paragon Carpet Tiles Case Studies

PARAGON BID FAREWELL TO ONE OF THEIR LONGEST SERVING MEMBERS OF THE SALES TEAM

 
After 11 Years of service at Paragon, and after 20 years within the trade Brian Willett Retired from Paragon.

In 1992 Brian joined the carpet tile manufacturing trade and was employed by Gaskells to head up the public sector division within London and the South East. Following 7 years’ service, Brian left Gaskells and moved to Carpets International as Southern Area Sales Manager.

On 23rd May 2001 Brian joined Paragon covering the South East as an Area Sales Manager. Paragon was just breaking into the carpet tile market. Brian’s success was soon recognised and he later became National Sales Manager running his own team alongside Sarah Roberts. Brian enjoyed his time at Paragon, as it had become the longest time he had spent with one manufacturer.

Brian played a significant role in the success that Paragon is today and he will be very sadly missed by his colleagues and customers. He will be handing his area over to Ron Clark who has previously worked at Paragon.

Brian has had an extremely successful career spanning over 41 years in sales, selling everything from frozen foods, DIY goods and of course carpet tiles. Throughout his career Brian has been a successful Sales Man, Sales Manager and even a Director, but most of all he has been one of the most unflustered, lovable and humorous colleagues to work with.

A retirement party was held on the 29th November at “The George” at Stamford, where colleagues old and new celebrated his career and wished him and his wife Joan a long and happy retirement.
