Product Specification Showrooms
For Architects & Designers
Meet the team
Steven Dennard - London
Specification Manager

After spending 12 years living and working in Germany, Steven returned to the UK to become Group Product Manager for doors at James Latham in 2012.

The role at the BDC as Specification Manager starting in 2016 alongside Steven's existing job works very well as the life of every product sold starts with a specification requirement.

The collective approach at the BDC with some excellent and often exclusive products: timber and panel, decorative and structural - means that they have a comprehensive offer for the specifier, architect, manufacturer and contractor.

 

Alex Wood - London
Specification Manager, Decorative Products

Alex has worked with Architects and Designers for nearly 30 years and joined the Lathams team as Specification Manager for Decorative Products. 

Alex says she finds this is an exciting role working from the Business Design Centre showroom - where she advises on James Latham beautiful branded products. 

Alex mainly works with A&D specifier clients as well as market leading suppliers. Every project is different but Alex enjoys helping to make them happen using Lathams’ products.

 

Matthew Morley - London
Showroom Coordinator

After a stint of travelling, as possibly the world’s oldest backpacker, Matthew is a relatively new starter to the industry and to James Latham following an earlier career in Finance.

Matthew comments that “The showroom has evolved into a creative space full of wonderful product samples that inspire Architects and Designers on a daily  basis. We are happy to host client meetings, supplier focus meetings and CPDs”. 

Having found the timber industry “surprisingly interesting” he looks forward to being part of the showroom reaching its full potential in the A&D space.

 

Rob Goodman - Manchester
Specification Manager

As well as Group Product Manager for Solid Surface, Rob is also Latham’s Specification Manager for the North and is responsible for Latham’s showroom in Manchester.

Commenting on his role, Rob says, “When I joined twelve years ago, while the specification market was important, it didn’t really have the prominence in our sector that it does today.  Now, our team has a multi-product portfolio, comprising a wide range of innovative surface solutions for both inside and outside the building and this is reflected in our showrooms, which are proving to be really popular with architects and designers.”

 

Michael O'Brien - Manchester
Showroom Coordinator

A graduate of Leeds University, Michael previously worked in market research before taking up the position at our Manchester showroom.

Since joining, Michael has immersed himself in Manchester’s architectural and design community, regularly attending or hosting presentations, CPDs and networking events. "I’ve really enjoyed getting to know the North West’s architects and designers. I think the fact that they can just drop in for what is one of the best cups of coffee in Manchester and enjoy it in a relaxed atmosphere while looking at the latest trends and developments in surface solutions, really appeals to them and I am looking forward to replicating the success of our London facility."
