Cosentino’s UK Area Director, Paul Gidley, at the Elite Honours event in Raymond Blanc's exclusive two Michelin star restaurant and hotel, Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons
Each year, Cosentino celebrates the Elite among its studios in the UK and Ireland. This year the 18 winners along with their guests were treated to Champagne and canapés and a lavish dinner at Raymond Blanc's exclusive two Michelin star restaurant and hotel, Le Manoir aux Quat'Saisons in Great Milton, Oxfordshire. The awards were presented by TV personality and interior designer Lynne Lambourne, who shared anecdotes from her most memorable design projects. Host for the event was Cosentino’s UK Area Director, Paul Gidley.
The annual event provides Cosentino with an opportunity to recognise and honour studios that embrace the spirit of its Elite Premium programme. This includes loyalty to the brand, unique installations and projects using Silestone and Dekton, promotions, sales and warranties, along with genuine enthusiasm and commitment to Cosentino products.
In hs opening remarks, Paul Gidley said: “We owe so much of our success to our loyal network of studios and each year we look forward to recognising their commitment and hard work with this event. Our Elite Honours List is now in its fourth year and it reinforces our dedication to our supportive customers. Devoting an evening to them is just one of the many ways we show our appreciation. As we gear up for our biggest launch of 2018, we’re excited to have the support of such a fantastic group.”
