Introducing Nathan! Nathan is The Flooring Room’s Operations Manager which means he co-ordinates the installers and ensures our team is on time – every time. It’s a big job but he’s certainly up to the task seeing as he has over 15 years of flooring experience under his belt as well as a ‘get stuck in’ attitude. We love having Nathan on the team because not only is he passionate about flooring, he also has plenty of time to crack a joke along the way. Outside of work, he has recently put an extension on his man cave so that his ever-growing collection of power tools also have a home.
