Jim, our Installation Manager, and template extraordinaire, has been with us since 2008. He’s the first person you’ll see from Cambrian Granite when we come to template a project. Here we find out more about him…
What brought you to Cambrian Granite? Mark & I knew each other from the pub (where all the best deals are made!) and got talking about Cambrian Granite one day. I was self-employed and wanted a change. I’m a joiner by trade and wanted to be home more so Mark convinced me to come on board as Installation Manager.
What do you like about working here? Templating takes me out and about, so I don’t have to be sat in the office all the time. Pauline’s baking is a massive advantage when I’m in the office – although not for my waistline!
How would the team describe you in 3 words? Approachable, funny, and bald… you can also add good looking!
What do you do in your spare time? I enjoy playing football with my son and going out for meals with my family.
Which 3 people, dead or alive, would you invite to dinner? All four of my grandparents – dead or alive.
What are you looking forward to at Cambrian Granite? I’m currently designing the new canteen downstairs to make way for our showroom expansion upstairs. The business is growing so that’s something everyone is looking forward to I think!
What fact about you would surprise people? I used to be a fireman… and no, I’ve never rescued a cat stuck up a tree!
Favourite film? The original Italian Job.
Favourite band? The Jam.
Favourite song? It’s a toss-up between Fools gold by The Stone Roses or Going Underground by The Jam.
Favourite TV show? Phoenix Nights.
Favourite holiday destination? The Greek Islands.
Favourite food? A homemade roast beef dinner!!
Last book you read? I read 6 books during lockdown but now I’m reading The Operators by James Rennie.
