Brian Linnington, managing director of Parkside and Strata Tiles, has taken early retirement, leaving the companies in the capable hands of new MD, Dan Little.
Brian Linnington joined Topps Tiles plc 10 years ago and established the Commercial Sales Division in 2017. Through two acquisitions in Parkside and Strata Tiles, Brian has created a fast-growing commercial sales business.
“It’s been an absolute pleasure to have worked for Topps Tiles and I’m extremely proud of the progress the commercial sales business has made,” says Brian on his retirement. “I know that it is in good hands with Dan Little and I look forward to watching the progress made over the next years.”
Newly appointed managing director, Dan Little, comes from within the Topps Tiles group. Previously director of property before becoming deputy MD commercial in 2020, Dan will lead Parkside and Strata Tiles as the companies enter a new chapter driven by the goal to become number one in the tile specification market.
Dan Little, managing director, says; “Thanks to the gains we have made in disrupting the sector from a relative standing start, we are now a growing business that’s well placed to go on and achieve our goal. I would like to thank Brian for his support, guidance and leadership.”
While Dan drives growth through a continued focus on service and environmental leadership, Brian Linnington will now enjoy his early retirement having “one last go at getting that golf handicap down before I’m too old”.
