Erin Markovic - Owner
Erin Markovic is the very proud owner of TFCC. Erin always knew she wanted to own her own business but she never dreamed she’d end up where she is now. As a Chartered Accountant, who worked hard in her studies and career, she thought she’d continue doing SMSF accounts and audits the rest of her life! But when she agreed to give the family business a helping hand with a new inventory system in 2012, her passion for numbers soon extended to a passion for flooring. Always striving for more, Erin has grand plans to take over the world of flooring. When she’s not working (which, let’s face it, isn’t often) Erin is a mum to two beautiful kids and loves her family more than anything. She is the daughter of Julie and Steve who founded TFCC many years ago. Erin came on board and worked as the General Manager for 5 years before finally admitting that she was never going back to the corporate world, and purchasing the business when Steve and Julie were ready to retire. Erin always had a clear vision of growing the business and bringing it into the future, without ever losing touch of that ‘family’ aspect and service that set Timber Flooring Clearance Centre apart.
It’s always hard to sum up Alex’s role in a few words. Having been with TFCC since March 2017, she knows the business inside and out and we would be pretty lost without her. When she is not cheering on the Saints at the footy or going to the gym, you can generally find Alex at the warehouse overseeing every order. Whether it's for pick up, delivery or installation, Alex’s attention to detail makes her the perfect person to make sure every item coming and going is correct. She is on the other end of your email enquiries and in control of organising all the stock for your orders. Liaising with suppliers, drivers and warehouse staff to make sure your product is available, correct and dispatched efficiently is what she does best!
Technically retired now, Julie gets sick of Steve at home and he comes in on weekends to swan around talking to customers and making a few sales . Lovingly referred to as “the old man”, Timber Flooring Clearance Centre was Steve’s baby for nearly 20 years, and he is so proud of what it has become (and is continuing to become!). Steve loves to drop in when he can. Spending time with his wife, three daughters and five grandkids is his favourite thing to do (until he falls asleep in the chair as all good grandads should!).
Whether he is training for spartan races or working with his hands on projects at home, Ben has an amazing attitude. He is constantly striving to better himself and help others. A carpenter by trade combined with a customer service background, Ben has the experience to assist you on your new flooring journey. From day one in-store choosing your flooring to finishing day, Ben is there to help liaise with the installers, organise your bookings and answer any questions you have.
If ‘service with a smile’ was a person, it would be Jade. She is approachable, friendly and likes to go above and beyond for her customers and colleagues. Jade knows her product, helps with style and colour, and can assist you with samples to help make your choice easier. She is a great cook and often makes amazing meals for the busy team. She makes sure we have all the things we need at work without making a fuss – soap, biscuits and milk seem to never run out but it’s actually Jade quietly making sure it’s all there.
