Meet the Team


Paul James is the Assistant Branch Manager at Poole and has been with us since Day 1.
With over a decade of experience in the tile industry and the patience of a saint, Paul is dedicated to helping customers find the correct solutions to all their project challenges.
An innovative character, Paul considers himself a bit of an inventor, and by all accounts a pretty good cook.
Paul keeps himself in shape by cycling everywhere, but is traumatised by the sight of a milk-float!

Robin Sinsbury is also an original team member and our H&S champion.
As with the rest of the Poole team, Rob has “previous” in the tile business, having worked for an independent distributor in Poole for many years.
Robin has switched to the part-time position in our team and takes care of the majority of our deliveries.
Most of his spare time is used as a volunteer on the Swanage Railway, where Robin is a qualified signalman.

Martyn Bearne is our Branch Manager who first became involved in the tile industry in 1984, through a Builders Merchant in his hometown of Dorchester.
Martyn has stayed in the trade in several capacities ever since, as a rep, merchandiser, shopkeeper and store manager.
He spends his spare time watching his beloved Premier League AFC Bournemouth (usually on the TV!) and walking or cycling in The New Forest.

Daniel Heath is the newest member of our team, having joined us in May 2016.
Daniel who has previous experience within the CTD Group likes his music and thinks he can sing, which is extremely debatable.
He is also keen on outdoor pursuits such as camping and fishing.
Daniel enjoys taking things apart, and then trying to put them back together again, in the hope, there are no pieces left at the end!

Our team here at CTD Poole look forward to welcoming and assisting you whenever you need us.

Martyn, Paul, Daniel & Robin

In A Spin For Macmillan

CTD Poole Assistant Branch Manager Paul James embarked upon the cycle-ride of his life by taking part in the Saint - Gobain’s 350th-anniversary cycle ride from the bright lights of London to the distant vine lined lanes of Blois France.

Paul's journey saw him cycle an outstanding 400miles in order to raise awareness and raise money for our CTD charity partner Macmillan Cancer Support. 

Macmillan provides financial, practical and emotional support to all who have been affected by cancer.

“So when you need someone to turn to, we’re here. Right from the moment, you’re diagnosed, through your treatment and beyond, we’re a constant source of support, giving you the energy and inspiration to help you take back control of your life”. - Macmillan Cancer Support
