We celebrate John Porthen who has been with the tile house for 21 years, as of July 2020!
John joined the tile house in 1999. With previous knowledge of working in sales in the tile industry, he quickly became a valuable part of our team. Today, with over 20 years of knowledge and experience John is one of the top performing members of our sales team. John has been involved in many of the largest and most prominent developments in South Africa.
Knowledge and experience got him part of the way, but his charm and sense of style have also played their part. John has an authentic business manner of working with his colleagues and clients with the utmost charm and respect. His no-nonsense attitude, dedication and consistency has gained him great respect in the tile industry.
John’s sense of style has evolved over the years as he has travelled the world for tiles and style. Most influential have been his travels to Italy for the annual tile fair at Cersaie, where John has even got the Italians’ heads turning! His impeccable style goes hand-in hand with his work. Always finding the right product for the specific application, and ensuring that the final product and service is of the highest quality.
