Introducing Mark Brice

Meet Managing Director, Mark Brice

First job?
HGA School teacher for 3 years.

Best job?
My current Role as Managing Director at ABC Blinds.

Worst job?
Dishwasher in a UK hospital while backpacking.

How long have you been doing your current job?
15 years.

Who was the biggest influence in your career?
My father, who has always been driven to succeed.

If you could start again, what would be your ideal job?
My current role. I’m so grateful for the chance to work in a family business and be successful over 15 years.

MARK’S TOP PICKS:

Best blinds for the living area, and why?
Sunscreen rollers, because they reduce heat and glare but retain your view and light into the room.

Best blinds for the bedroom, and why?
Shutters, I love their contemporary look combined with great light control.

Best blinds for the bathroom, and why?
Roller blinds with a patterned fabric to add interest and contrast to the room.

Best blinds for outdoor, and why?
The Windmaster range, because they’re designed specifically for Perth’s conditions.

MARK’S INDUSTRY INSIDER:

How is ABC adapting to the industry?
By offering a large range of options. Never in our history has there been so many alternatives to choose from, including blinds, shutters and curtains. Also, there is a growing awareness of energy efficiency, and how outdoor awnings and blinds can play a role in this. Stopping the heat from getting to your windows and entering your home is the ultimate scenario.

What should people be expecting from coming into an ABC Blinds showroom?
Showroom visits are wonderful to see the variety on offer and we have started to put more information on display to walk customers through the options.

What are some exciting things happening in the industry, or that will be around in the future?
Sheer curtains are making a strong appearance. They filter light, have a soft feel and can make a room appear larger.

Final thoughts, tips or advice?
We offer a 5% price guarantee, as we know price is important but also that service is paramount. We are also proud of the fact we are a local WA company and a local manufacturer who employs over 160 people. We have a huge factory in Wangara and we encourage any customers to come and see their blinds being made!
