Bespoke stone fabricator and installer of custom-made worktops Classico Marble has made a new addition to its team to support the company’s sales and business growth, and taken on Elaine Mead as its first national relationship manager. Elaine will be working alongside Classico MD Salve Caruso to look after all its kitchen and bathroom design studio, architect, interior designer, builder and developer clients across the UK.
Elaine has over 30 years’ experience in the kitchen and bathroom sector from design right through to installation and aftercare, and has always focussed on selling and promoting high-quality products. She has held business development and sales roles at Galley Matrix, Elements Kitchens, Opticolour, Decoglaze, InSinkErator and Jane Duncan Architects & Interiors.
Salve Caruso said: “My father started Classico just over 25 years ago, and the business was based on his key values of high-quality work, integrity and service. These remain the core values of Classico to this day and our reputation extends around the UK and Europe. Elaine was the right fit for us as she immediately grasped how important it is to us to ensure our reputation is the best in the market. She has a vast experience in the kitchen and bathroom industry, and strong relationships too. I’ve even been congratulated by people in the industry for hiring her!”
Elaine said: “When I visited Classico Marble’s factory and offices, it was so evident that they really care about their staff and took great pride in the company’s reputation. Offering only high-quality, beautiful materials, and going that extra mile to ensure fabrication and installation was of the best offered within the market, I knew this was for me.”
