Wilton Carpets Commercial has appointed Damian Roscoe to the newly established Head of Creative role, marking its ambition to ensure design is at the heart of its strategy.
The highly experienced Damian Roscoe has spent over 25 years in the carpet industry, shaping the design direction for prestigious carpet brands. Now at one of the UK’s foremost manufacturers, creating bespoke and stock woven and tufted carpets for commercial interiors, Damian Roscoe is excited about the challenge ahead:
“Wilton is one of the greats, but what truly excited me was the role proposed by James Sprint, CEO, who is committed to the strong creative purpose of Wilton with design touching as many facets of the business as possible,” says Damian Roscoe.
“By continuing to embrace our heritage and pioneering a contemporary attitude, Wilton will cement its place as a truly design-led company and become a desired brand the world over.”
Damian has already begun taking the first steps in helping to shape the future design direction of the manufacturer, citing talent and resource in place and the welcome backing of senior management as excellent catalysts for success:
“There is no doubt that we can achieve our goal to become an international force in the hospitality industry. We have the capability, experience, commercial infrastructure and willingness to succeed.
“The quality of people at Wilton has impressed me, their spirit and enthusiasm for common goals is infectious, I really am in awe of the setup here and the resulting quality of product. The chance to make one of Britain’s last great carpet manufacturers an international force in design-led carpet is one that I am relishing.”
Damian will be based at Wilton’s Wiltshire headquarters, dividing time between the studio and liaising closely with sales managers and clients on projects, further developing the brand as a powerhouse of hospitality carpet.
