Meet Our European Leadership Team



One of the benefits of being part of a globalised business is the unparalleled opportunity to take your career worldwide. 

Hear from a few of the team who have made the most of this.

Carmen García Giménez

Our European Offline Marketing Executive, Carmen, who is originally from Spain, now works in our European Head Office in North Shields, UK. Carmen comments: "Formica Group has given me the opportunity of living in three different countries which allowed me to get to know new cultures and work in a variety of different business models and team structures. This opportunity has positively impacted me both personally and professionally and has opened my mind to new horizons I could have never imagined. I have made loads of good friends during this journey who will be part of my life forever."

Our Recruitment and Talent Manager, Zoe, explains: "Coming to Formica Group Europe HQ from our parent company, Fletcher Building, in New Zealand has allowed me to not only add to my career toolkit with international experience but it has given me the opportunity to explore different cultures and appease my appetite for adventure. Working in the People and Performance department means I have witnessed a lot of people accept international assignments all over the world and come back invigorated, so when the opportunity came up for me to do the same - I ran to the airport! I have learnt so much from my time here, both my technical capabilities and confidence have grown from partnering with such expertise - Newcastle will forever be a second home."
