Tony Graddon has more than 30 years’ experience in the fit-out industry. He was co-founder and director of CPL Group plc, selling his stake in the business in 2008, and has worked at director level at Legion Group and Eastwood Group.
He will work with Estilo founder and managing director Andrew Moore to develop the business and add to the company’s prestigious national client base, which includes Vax, EON UK, Dolby, Aviva, Handelsbanken and Nurton Developments.
Estilo specialises in commercial interior design, fit-out and refurbishment for the office, retail and education sectors. Projected turnover for this year is in excess of £10million.
Founded in Sutton Coldfield in 2003, Estilo recently relocated to a 3,600 sq ft freehold premises in Water Street, Birmingham. The new HQ includes space for expansion and will have a dedicated studio and library which clients can visit to view and discuss their fit-out projects.
The original interiors business was supplemented in 2010 by Estilo Electrical Services; Estilo HVAC (heating, ventilation and air conditioning) was added in 2013.
Tony Graddon said: “Estilo has developed a reputation for delivering a first class service on time and budget, whilst having mechanical and electrical companies within the group provides us with a genuine USP, allowing us to offer a complete turnkey package.
“Our move to a new city centre HQ will help us capitalise on the improving property market and appetite for investment in commercial space.”
Tony’s appointment follows that of Lucy Hansell, who joined the company in April to develop new business.
Andrew Moore said: “Tony is a well known face in the industry and brings three decades of experience to the table. I look forward to working with him and Lucy to further build the Estilo brand and reputation.”
