Mark Bailey | Industrial Sales Executive - Ipswich / Romford Branches
Mark's career began at 17 working for a kitchen manufacturer as an apprentice cabinet maker. On his first day he was placed in the factory's Finishing Department and “never let out", and subsequently spent the next few years here learning to use traditional finishes such as pre cat & acid cured lacquers, stains and patinas. He then moved to join a family owned joinery shop running their Finishing Department, gaining extensive experience in exterior joinery coatings and polyurethane products, glazing and working on sites fitting finished work, educating him in joinery manufacturing and providing an invaluable insight into the construction industry which he still finds of benefit today. In 2002 Mark set up his own workshop offering wood finishing solutions to local joinery shops, utilising his vast experiences and skills in a varied work environment.
In 2007, Mark decided to change career and move into sales. Working for Movac was definitely his first choice as they had been his No.1 supplier over 17 years. Mark covers most of Suffolk and some of Essex including Colchester, Maldon, Braintree & Southend, maintaining and growing the Wood Finish division. He says his work is highly rewarding and enjoys being part of an ever expanding team and is confident his career will continue to develop along with the company and embraces the fact that he is still learning every single day from products and customers.
