WILLIAM PEARSE_.jpg

William Pearse

Melbourne Sales Manager

William is our font of knowledge in regard to all things Agape and INAX Japan (where he is affectionately known as “Willie-San”). He’s an enigma with a wicked sense of humour and has a background in design (and banana picking – post uni). He’s extremely discerning, his design knowledge is deep and he is all about unique architectural products that stand the test of time. He also likes to look at instagram on his computer, not his mobile phone.
He often finds the complexity in simple things, but don’t let that put you off calling him. He is amazing at what he does.

PHIL_.jpg

Phil Brenton

Managing Director

Phil was born on a farm in Kansas, NZ, and grew up dreaming of being a fireman or a rodeo clown. As he developed into manhood he realised his physique was better suited to selling tiles and stone, so he set his dreams aside, hopped on his tractor and drove into Sydney to seek his fortune. Along the way he got a degree and met an ingenious, passionate Sicilian, who took advantage of his innocence and offered him a job in his stone & tile showroom, paying him only in tagliatelle and red wine. After years of wild success and mosaics, the Sicilian handed Phil the keys to the Artedomus family wagon, which he proceeded to drive down the road of time until we have got where we are today. Phil likes cheese, combat Frisbee and living under bridges.

ASH.jpg

Ashley Goodwin

IT Manager & Logistics

Ashley began (and nearly ended) his career as a carpenter. After a very one sided argument with a circular saw, he decided the way of the tiles was the way for him. It’s safe to say there’s not many roles at Artedomus that Ash hasn’t tried but now that he’s struck the double gold of Logistics and IT he won’t be budging easily. Ash is so deep Artedomus that he intentionally lives around 300km away from our offices so he can think about ceramics and containers for three hours before and after work too. He’s almost the perfect employee, except he supports the Panthers. Luckily, he’s now moved to Queensland with his family so he can start to support the Titans.

YAS_.jpg

Yas Bahar

Victoria State Manager

Yas is our resident Persian – American – Canadian engineer. Born in Toronto and raised in Los Angeles she is the youngest of 6 children, so she knows how to make herself heard.
