Victoria targets hard flooring with Debrouwere appointment
Victoria has made clear its intention to target the hard flooring market with the appointment of Jan Debrouwere as director of business development – hard flooring.
Debrouwere had been working as a management consultant after running Beaulieu International Group’s hard flooring division for four years.

‘Victoria is very determined to grow its existing successful hard flooring business, which we believe represents a significant opportunity for us,’ said Geoff Wilding, Victoria executive chairman.
‘ A focused entrepreneur, with a passion for product development, design and innovation, Jan's appointment is an important step as the group seeks to secure customers, suppliers and acquisitions to gain market share in the growing hard flooring market.
‘With almost three decades of flooring experience in Europe, we are delighted to have secured such a senior and experienced individual as Jan to run our hard flooring division. As a very driven entrepreneur who is extremely well-known in the industry, Jan will be a fabulous asset to us as we materially develop our hard flooring business across the UK and Europe.’
