 Julian  

Julian Marsh – Technical Sales

Accurate measurements are vitally important. Without them, the staircase, or some important part of it, will not fit to perfection.

Enter Julian Marsh, whose former job as a self-employed carpenter means he knows all about taking precise measurements and making absolutely certain that the proposed staircase will fit the location.  Julian goes out on site, visiting customers at their homes or businesses, advising them on the best type of design for their particular site situations. While double-checking measurements is an essential part of the job, Julian feels that meeting people as one of the public faces of Pear Stairs, discussing all the options with customers, is equally important and rewarding.

He loves to see a job well done and is proud to think that he played a vital part in it.

Helping others: Manages Churchstoke Football Club – training on Tuesdays, matches on Saturdays.

Loves: Family life; Arsenal and Shrewsbury Town Football Clubs; lawn mower racing (has won several competitions); playing pool.
