Jeff Riach, Oakworks CEO, has announced the appointment of spa industry veteran Brian Paris as the company's new senior project consultant.

The US-based spa and wellness equipment manufacturer has brought Paris aboard in response to significant growth and new corporate partnerships with global partners such as Accor, Aman Resorts and 1 Hotels.

With more than 25 years of experience developing equipment client relationships globally, Paris will support the sales team led by Jessica Wadley, VP of business development for Oakworks.

“I'm excited to join Oakworks to expand relationships with our corporate partners and dealers globally,” said Paris, “I’ve sold Oakworks my entire career and even owned one of their portable tables in massage school back in 1998.

“The quality of the equipment and people is unsurpassed – 100 per cent made in the US, sustainably manufactured and independently certified.”

Paris is a multifaceted sales executive and business strategist who custom designs spa equipment based on customers' needs.

His previous projects include AM Resorts, Marriott International, The Ritz Carlton, Rosewood, Shangri-La Hotels and Viceroy Hotels & Resorts.

He has also worked with brands including Universal Companies, Earthlite and Bodyworkmall.

In addition, Paris is a former member of GSN Planet Board of Directors, an industry body which champions sustainability in the spa and wellness sectors.

“Oakworks is poised for double-digit growth both in the medical and wellness sector worldwide,” explained Wadley, “and with growth comes the need to add talented team members.

“Brian’s hands-on, collaborative approach and focus on sustainability perfectly align with our core values.

“For over 40 years we have maintained a highly attentive and consultative approach to our customers. We can’t wait to see what the future brings with Brian as part of the team.”
