I’ve been selling Orac Decor since 2001.

A chance meeting in Glasgow developed into a close relationship as a key supplier and agent within the U.K..

At the time I was running House Martin GRP Ltd, based near Exeter in Devon.

Using my background in the construction I introduced Orac to both New Build developments, and  retail customers through our websites.  This relationship flourished over the next 12 years.

When our 10 month old grandson in London developed leukaemia my focus switched to putting our family first, and I sold the company to my friend Michael Chandler who continues as one of Orac UK’s key accounts.

After a month off work, and discussions with Orac HQ in Ostende my agency role with this lovely family firm grew stronger.  A short while later I accepted a full time position as the local Business Unit Manager.

The last few months of 2013 were invaluable as I got to grips with Citrix, and grew accustomed to the customer base and began to work out a strategy for 2014.

Six months in we are enjoying great success, and looking at growth in every product group. Back at the office in Cranleigh I’m ably supported by Alison, Dagmara, and Gerry.
