Bushboard appoints National Training Manager
Steve Ball has been appointed as the National Training Manager at Bushboard. Bushboard has created this new position in its management team to strategically develop the sales and growth of its premium brands of installer-ready worksurfaces in M-Stone quartz and Encore solid surface.
Bushboard has trained over 2,500 installers to date and Steve will be responsible for establishing a formally approved network of installers recognised within the industry and who can be recommended to consumers.
Steve brings extensive experience in surface materials and interiors, having worked for Corian for over 10 years. His UK-wide role will focus on training retailers and installers in the Encore and M-Stone product ranges referencing its design and installation benefits held both across the UK and at the free sessions at Bushboard's Wellingborough showroom and training centre. He will also be helping retailers maximise their earning power through merchandising and in-store displays.
Says Steve of his new role:
"I am delighted to be joining a team that is clearly putting a serious commitment behind developing the exciting installer-ready options in quartz and solid surface because they are without doubt the growth materials of the future. Both Encore and M-Stone are product ranges that have significant benefits for retailers and installers in growing sales in the mainstream market where there is clear demand and earning healthy margins."
