West steps down from Balta role

Martin West, former Balta and Headlam executive has stepped back from the flooring industry after 33 years.

The former Balta Group key account manager (UK) says he is unsure if he is taking a sabbatical break or early retirement. ‘I have been lucky to work with a great team of colleagues to whom I extend my heartfelt thanks for your help and support. I’m now off to sail into the sunset and spend some quality time with my family as we see what the future will hold,’ he says.

West joined the industry as Planet Carpets sales director in 1989, joining Kingsmead Carpets as general manager in 2002, before becoming md from 2013 to 2016. He spent a further 15 months at Headlam as HFD commercial director.

In 2018 he became md at William Armes and a director at Likewise. He left in 2019, before moving to Balta.

West has been a freeman of the Furniture Makers’ Company since 2020.
