DRIVEWAYS company Decorative Concrete UK Ltd has appointed Julian Smith as head of franchising for the group, which includes Spectacular Driveways and Spectacular Restoration.
Mr Smith, who has 25 years of sales and business development experience, will lead the expansion of the group’s franchise business.
He moves to Decorative Concrete from a franchise development role at Midlands-based business growth consultancy Franchise Business Booster.
His first task will be develop the group’s new Spectacular Restoration franchise, which offers specialist cleaning and restoration services for surfaces, including decorative concrete, block paving and asphalt.
Mr Smith, 42, said: “Decorative Concrete is a company full of opportunity and the success of the franchise to date is clear proof that its sights are set firmly on continued growth. I’m very much looking forward to working with a great team.”
Spectacular Driveways, based at Lockwood, has already established successful franchisees in the North of England. The company has also received franchise enquiries from across the UK and overseas.
Managing director John Quinn said: “Our commitment to the Spectacular franchise grows with Julian now on our team.
“His extensive career in designing and developing successful franchises and networks further strengthens our position as the market leading specialists in the design and installation of decorative concrete.”
