Becky Clarke, freelance stylist & journalist. As a freelance designer, stylist and journalist for national interiors magazines, I am in constant contact with many PR agencies and always value the professional service I receive from Select First. Myles and his team are efficient and friendly and no matter what my request, the response is always fast and reliable.
Carol Wortley-Bishop, editorial stylist. I find Select First informative and highly responsive to the needs of an editorial stylist; in terms of current trends and access to new products and a great ambassador for your brands.
Pippa Jameson, Pippa Jameson Interiors. I have worked with Select First on many occasions but most recently, we used Quick-Step for a large ITV1 production. We had a very specific brief with an extremely tight turnaround and Tom delivered on every level.
Francis Debrabandere, commercial director, IVC Group. The team at Select First know the flooring trade very well and understand the specifics of both residential and commercial flooring. They can come up with a complete marketing strategy to enter a market, or execute a specific brief on a marketing action. Whatever the brief, they will perform within the always-too-tight budget and time restrictions. They are great fun socially as well by the way!
Simon Ainge, sales director, Kettle Interiors. Kettle Interiors have been enjoying the services offered by Select First for many years, they have helped to evolve our brand through a changing market and effortlessly fulfill every brief, from budget management to creative sales campaigns. Being a close knit team, Select First work as if they were part of our company, speaking to printers to arrange the best price and liaising with publications to form key relationships, both of which are imperative to a successful marketing strategy. In short, they act in our interests at all times and are able to respond to urgent deadlines when necessary. We look forward to continuing our long relationship with Select First and are excited to see the results of future projects.
Theresa Dowling, editor, FX Magazine. I have been delighted to work with Select First on a number of campaigns, and have found him absolutely first class to deal with. Whilst always putting his clients first, he understands the need for quality editorial and therefore it is easy to work to a successful conclusion for both his clients and FX.
Hayley Gilbert, freelance journalist. Thank you so much Tom; this is perfect!
Andrew Kidd, editor, Interiors Monthly. In my role as editor of Interiors Monthly I come into contact with many marketing departments and PR agencies that regard themselves as experts. However, few, if any, can truly regard themselves as knowledgeable or as efficient as Tom and Myles at Select First. They have an extremely good understanding of the interiors sector and from my experience use their knowledge to the benefit of both the media and their clients alike extremely well. What I appreciate more than anything is that they deliver consistent, quality material, whether copy or high resolution photography on time and when they promise.
Michelle Magill, marketing manager, Unilin Distribution. Unilin has been supported by Select First in the UK for several years, and their impact on our drive to increase brand awareness has been significant, reflecting their strength in the field of PR. We have an excellent relationship with the team, who clearly understand our business and our needs. They have produced fantastic results successfully communicating our brand values and promoting existing and new product ranges. They deliver a consistently high level of quality coverage across all our business units and are hard working and energetic.
