Continuing with our theme of interviewing prominent figures in the trade, last month we crossed the ocean and met Andy, from Texas, but this time we are back in Blighty and are talking to Greg Clark from Central London.
If you want to be interviewed by the editor, then drop us a line using the contact form above.
It’s completely free and although we don’t promise to publish every single interview, we will certainly consider any application and we will listen to what you have to say! This is a REAL interview and NOT an advert. No fee was paid to us by Mr Clark.
Interviews are available for people involved in the building industry at any level, those “on the tools” and those in management or surveying (etc) also.
So without further ado, let’s meet Greg and find out who he is, what he does, and why his clients are always happy to recommend him!
1. Introduce yourself! Who are you and what do you do?

2. Where do you live and tell us what you like about the place.
I live in Clerkenwell London,which is in Zone 1 Central London.
I love London and living in the hustle and bustle of the city apart from the traffic! But I can often be found out and about enjoying what the city has to offer… sometimes a little too much!
Our business is focused on this area of the UK decorating town houses, private residential properties, shops, bars, clubs, offices, schools, business, factories and everything in between.
3. Describe a typical working day for you and your team.
Hectic… As a relatively young business that has more than doubled in turn over and growth year on year were are constantly looking to improve our business and how we operate.
Starting from humble beginnings, we now employ a small team of high quality decorators and have developed a large network of various subcontractors that can deliver any type of painting and decorating contract.
We offer a wide range of services covering the whole spectrum of the painting and decorating industry. From highly trained specialist painters who work on English Heritage Properties and high end residential decorators, to industrial and commercial contract painters.
4. What is it that makes your service stand apart from the crowd?
We just get on and work while many others talk about it
5. Where do you see both yourself, and your business in 5 years time?
The best painting contractor in London…. probably
6. Finally, is there anything else you want to add that you think will highlight why people should choose your business?
People should choose if they are looking for a reliable quality service. We invest heavily in our people, training and procedures.
We are easily accessible to all our clients ensuring every project we take on is run on time, and to budget.
