Just Shutters welcome on board Tom Parrott as he signs franchise contract.
Tom Parrott is a shutter expert with years of experience in every element of their design, manufacture and installation. We are delighted to have him as our new Hertfordshire franchisee. He and his wife Brooke have taken the helm of Just Shutters Hertfordshire. The husband and wife team have all the makings of the ideal franchisees; having worked for Tom’s family business in the US for many year, specialising plantation shutters.
Tom is an all-round shutter expert with a passion for both the creative and hands on side of the business. He is looking forward to getting out in the field. He has now completed training with our expert team in Dorset and very excited to meet customers.
While Tom’s experience was evident from day one of training, he admitted ‘There are differences in the Florida and Herts markets. For example, in the US the houses were all new builds with standard-sized windows. The UK proves more of a challenge with many more interesting shapes and older properties.’
‘Nothing seems to be ‘straight’ or ‘standard’ which is an extra challenge I am enjoying, and one that plays to my creativity’ Tom adds.
The whole team have enjoyed having Tom around these past weeks and we are confident he is more than prepared to take the reins on our already established area of Hertfordshire.
Simon Osterloh, Managing Director, says; ‘Tom is everything we look for in a franchisee. He already has bags of experience of course, but more than this he is friendly, polite and confident, he has the skills needed for the role. We look forward to great things for him and his wife Brooke.’
We give a warm Just Shutters welcome to the pair and say ‘welcome on board’.
