Meet Chris, our marketing guy!  He’s been with us for about two and a half years and takes care of all our front-end marketing needs.  He’s designed our website, packaging, and newer logos, and he helps out in other departments when necessary.  I asked Chris some questions that are extremely important and topical so we can give him the recognition he deserves for his hard work!

 What’s your favorite project you’ve worked on since you’ve been here? Why was it your favorite?

I’ve loved a lot of the projects here, but working on the Merola Tile catalog definitely expanded my horizons, creativity and perfectionism beyond expectation. I knew it was the best way to reach our customers, but it was more than just creating a catalog- it was also about team collaboration. A lot of people helped and supported me throughout the project and I’m really grateful for that. When someone looks through this catalog, I want them to feel the passion that we have for tile and the love we have for our customers.

What’s your favorite tile?

That’s a tough one. I would say my favorite tile is the Griselda Subway Sand. I love the textures and colors and there’s no repetitive pattern.

You’re put in charge of Free Lunch Wednesday. What type of food are we eating?

We would all have Portuguese food. It’s a must-have for those of you who haven’t tried it.

 If you could have any super power, what would it be?

If I could have any, it would be super strength… I mean… enough to pick up an elephant when it gets stuck in mud. That totally happens every day.

Thanks for your time, Chris! Keep an eye out for posts like this in the future- we’re proud of our team and want to show you what our motley group brings to the company.
