Joint Managing Director
Phil is steadfast and unflappable, providing the stable foundation on which Yeomans rests. 25 years in the industry has not dampened his enthusiasm to continually strive to combine a charitable heart with a business model of honesty and integrity.
Additional training in accountancy and studying for a business studies degree with the Open University has enabled him to chart a course by which to steer the ship that is Yeomans on its journey of adventure.
If Phil was an animal, he’d be a swan; calm, collected and gracefully (!) dealing with clients and the fundamentals of business management, whilst working furiously beneath the surface to ensure that everything comes together in the right way.
Joint Managing Director
Alistair’s been at the heart of the business since day one, having co-founded Yeomans with Phil in 2004. He adopts a hands-on approach to the business, and has overall responsibility for production.
Apprenticed into the reprographics trade at the age of sixteen, he possesses wide-ranging experience of the print industry from sales, IT infrastructure and team management through to production. He’s got overall responsibility for Client Services management and products and service delivery and is a safe pair of hands you can rely on to get the job done in the right way and on time!
If AA Milne had known Alistair, he’d have based his ‘Tigger’ character on him! He has seemingly boundless reserves of energy and an infectious good humour which sets the tone for the office.
Director of Business Development
During a successful career in the army, James served in several developing countries and conflict situations where he came face-to-face with extreme poverty. His experiences have led him to use his infectious energy and enthusiasm to help charities and NGOs launch highly effective, cross-platform campaigns that recruit new supporters, raise awareness and increase funding opportunities.
He’s passionate about developing long-term relationships with clients that are built on trust and his personal commitment to the cause.
(Editor’s note: James’ ‘infectious energy’ is an understatement. If you’ve met him, you know what I mean – it’s like having a pet whirlwind around!)
Data, Process & Compliance Manager
As Yeomans continues to grow in the number of organisations we are helping it is imperative that we have our own systems in place so that we can serve you to the best of our ability.
Andy keeps a watchful eye over the internal workings of Yeomans and advises where policies and procedures need to be amended to maintain best practice.
In addition, Andy also carries a wealth of knowledge of data management and analysis, mailing and postal information having spent nearly twenty years working for Royal Mail and mailing houses.
Outside of work Andy’s passions are singing, theatre and baking!
Davin has more than 30 years’ experience and is truly an expert when it comes to all things print. His knowledge and willingness to share his expertise makes him the perfect person to manage your projects. His informal professionalism make him an ideal member of the Yeomans team.
When he’s not busy managing your projects Davin enjoys spending time in the great outdoors, relaxing with a spot of fishing or hitting a small white ball towards a hole in the distance.
Toni is supremely efficient, great fun and the ideal person to be managing every aspect of your account.
She gained her in-depth knowledge of corporate print while working in London for international banks and leading law firms. Looking for a more rewarding challenge that suited her compassionate nature, Toni joined the team at Yeomans in summer 2011. After taking a short break to have her first baby, Toni was thrilled to return to her vital management role at the sharp end of the Yeomans team. She is currently on maternity leave as she looks forward to welcoming a new member to the family.
Toni loves being a mum, especially when it comes to watching her son jumping on trampolines and making dens in the woods. She's a big fan of the great outdoors and enjoys nothing more than taking time out with friends to walk, hike, cycle and camp.
Becs joined the team at the end of 2018 and her calm, caring and organised approach has shone through since day 1, making her a great Account Manager and a real asset to the team.
Becs has always had a passion for supporting charities, so she is excited to have joined a team and organisation where she can encounter many different charities and challenges on a regular basis.
With Account Management and Creative Services experience in both Marketing and Advertising agencies, Becs brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the team having spent many years managing campaigns, events and studio work flow.
Outside of work Becs enjoys spending time with her family (including the cat) and unwinding with a bit of yoga and a good book to read (though probably not all at the same time!)
You could say that Design and Print are in Dan’s DNA.
At the age of 19 he followed his Grandad into the world of print and he’s been there ever since. Dan brings a great level of knowledge and expertise to our Account Management team having spent eight years working as a paper merchant and even running his own print, design and digital marketing business for a while. In fact, what Dan doesn’t know about print and paper probably isn’t worth worrying about too much.
Outside of work, when he’s not crying himself to sleep because James Wilmshurst’s beard is better than his (!!), Dan enjoys spending time with his wife and daughters, and following his passions for fast cars and all things cricket and football related. He’s (currently) a proud Spurs fan.
Alison has more than 17 years of charity experience across operational, management, grants, tendering and research roles with organisations including Tearfund and Spurgeons. Her passion is to enable charities to become more effective at delivering their mission and having the resources to do so. You could say she has the charity ‘Bug!
Associate Marketing & Fundraising Consultant
Andy’s a highly experienced business and marcomms professional who has managed marketing programmes both in-house and within the agency environment.
Cutting his teeth on big commercial brands including McDonalds, McCain foods and Muller Dairy he rose quickly through the agency ranks to manage agency business development and client marketing campaigns at board level. In 2007, following his Faith, he moved into the non-profit, Christian sector. He joined Spring Harvest, initially working on the Event programme but moved swiftly to manage all the marketing and UK operations for Spring Harvest Holidays.
Andy’s approach to marketing and communications is strategic, producing intelligence-led campaigns that use the right messages and channels to get results.
He plays guitar, likes fine cheeses and does many things for love – including getting engaged live on Capital FM one Valentine’s Day.
Claire brings an adventurous spirit to our team. A born explorer, who’s more at home hiking than sitting at a desk, she’s crewed a yacht across the Channel and a Hot Air Balloon too! She takes a real pleasure in helping others and volunteers as a youth worker as she has a particular heart for seeing young people fulfil their potential.
For several years she combined those passions and was Marketing Manager for Rock UK, who give young people the opportunity to have fun in the great outdoors while learning more about themselves and who they can become!
She’s passionate, creative and exceptionally well-organised. Now that she’s our Marketing Manager she’s showing us all what a gifted Archer she is too – by making sure we’re always aiming for our target audience and hitting the gold!
Junior Marketing Executive
Recognise the surname? Yes, Kirsten is Alistair’s daughter, and with her bubbly personality and love of all things social media, she’s a great asset to the Marketing Team!
Joining us as an intern in 2016/17 before globetrotting to see the sights of Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia and Malaysia we were excited by her decision to return to Yeomans full time in October 2017.
Kirsten has a passion for marketing – inspired by the entrepreneurism of her dad and through seeing Yeomans develop over the years. She has a natural flare for marketing with social media (watch out Instagram!) and is currently growing her marketing skills by studying a course in Marketing Principles with the CIM.
We’re sure that Kirsten has a great future ahead of her, the question is, whereabouts in the world will it be – she’s a keen explorer and after her recent travels is already planning her next adventure…
As Office Manager, Sally takes multi-tasking to new heights.
Graduating with a degree in economics from Cambridge University, Sally went on to qualify as a chartered accountant. She ran her own business for 10 years before deciding to take on a fresh challenge at Yeomans. Sally uses her talents as Office Manager to keep the books, pay the staff and always be ready with an understanding, listening ear in her important HR role.
Born in Germany to army parents, Sally is proud to say that English is not her first language (although you'd never know it when you speak to her on the phone). If she entered The Great British Bake Off, she'd win hands down. When Sally's not baking cakes for her appreciative fans at Yeomans, she's pursuing her passion for embroidery, travel and reading 1950s science fiction. She shares her home with a corn snake called Messalina.
Studio Manager & Senior Creative
Steve is Studio Manager and Senior Creative at Yeomans and believes his job is far more than his title - it is the responsibility he has to our clients and his team. He is very hands on, preferring to lead by example and demonstration. With over 14 years knowledge and experience, he is very experienced in all elements of marketing from traditional print and advertising to interactive and emerging technologies. He’s dedicated to maintaining high standards of all work produced and always looks to find the best creative solution to achieve the maximum impact for any piece of design.
Steve is a senior member of our Creative team who are a great bunch of creative individuals bringing many years of experience and expertise into the mix. Each member of the team brings their own unique perspective and particular skills, enabling us to deliver unique design outputs for each of our clients and their projects.
After graduating with a first class honours degree in Graphic Design from the Norwich School of Art and Design Clare has worked in multi-disciplinary design agencies across London and the South East. Clients have included Sainsbury's, Elemis, Vichy, Local Government and the Charity Sector including Habitat for Humanity and Send a Cow. She has a passion for concept driven design and creating work that inspires.
Charlotte is an integral part of the creative and design team – with her energy and imaginative vision, there’s no-one better!
Her passion for design was nurtured while working on accounts including the Jordan F1 Racing Team, Saatchi & Saatchi and Department of Health. This experience alongside her unparalleled eye for detail, foster a reputation for excellence of which we are justly proud.
Robert loves to use his creativity to make a difference to people's lives, especially when it comes to helping people out of poverty.
A true professional with over 30 years' experience, Robert has worked on a huge number of projects for organisations ranging from charities through to major blue chip clients. Highlights of his career include five years in the USA gaining invaluable experience as a designer with the global charity, Habitat for Humanity.
Being part of a talented, unpretentious team that works together to make a real difference to people's lives is something Robert values greatly about working with Yeomans.
In his spare time, Robert is an avid collector. There's nothing he enjoys more than coming across 1930s tea sets, plastic kitsch, and objet d'art that he considers worthy of a place in his home.
He enjoys fashion, loves visiting galleries and museums and has a reputation for being a bit of a foodie when entertaining friends.
Jono joined our team at the beginning of 2014. An experienced and innovative web developer, he creates our clients’ digital campaigns and their web presence. He is passionate about his work, the charities he’s personally involved with and in helping people get the best of the web.
Jason is a rare talent who derives great pleasure and personal satisfaction from analysing and processing data.
Before joining the production team at Yeomans in 2013, Jason had gathered invaluable experience in a variety of office jobs. Self-taught in Visual Basic Macro Coding, Jason has also completed a course to become a Frontstream Certified Consultant. With his painstaking attention to detail, Jason is the ideal person to entrust with all your data processing requirements.
When his eyes are not glued to a computer screen, Jason loves to sing. His passion for singing has led him to perform in public where he's won several competitions, which have also tempted him to audition for the X Factor! When he's not singing, Jason enjoys relaxing by playing the piano, pool and chess. He's also a dab hand at keeping all the balls in the air with his juggling skills.
With 17 years’ experience in the print industry (12 of those spent working nights), we welcomed Bradley to the Yeomans team in October 2017. He was attracted to join Yeomans because of our strong company values and team (and because he wouldn’t be working nights!) He’s certainly fitted straight in.
Bradley’s role as Production Manager is busy and varied, no two days are the same. The art of juggling deadlines and managing his team is definitely something Bradley’s well prepared for… he has 3 children and coaches his local under 10’s football team, so is always up for a challenge. Add his love of sport and (sea)food to the mix and Bradley fits in really well with the Yeomans team – you never have to look too far to find food here!
Digital Print Manager
Michael joined us in December 2013, to manage our digital print and variable data. With an uncanny problem-solving ability he’s our very own Sherlock! Mike fuses a lifelong passion for skateboarding with a desire to help nurture young people by teaching at his local youth club.
Becky originally joined the team in 2009 and after a brief “sabbatical” during which she became mum to 2 beautiful daughters, she missed us so much that she made her return in October 2017.
Becky describes her main passions in life as Eating, Drinking and Sleeping - particularly enjoying food that someone else has cooked, or that’s disguised as chocolate! We’d also add that her passion for customer service shines through in her approach to the client projects she works on – she always takes the time to listen and care for the charity supporters she comes into contact with.
Michelle joined the team in October 2017, working on a part-time, job share basis with Becky, providing administrative support on client projects, including supporter care.
Michelle’s calm, methodical and dedicated approach is a great asset to the team, particularly on those days when the office gets an influx of appeal responses and a well-timed thank you is just what’s needed!
Away from work, Michelle loves nothing more than spending time with her family and socialising with close friends.
Jo can turn her hand to anything.
Jo excelled in litho before moving in to digital print over eight years ago. With more than 20 years experience in print finishing she takes enormous pride in her finishing, knowing that it can make all the difference to how a printed piece ends up looking and feeling.
Jo is a big Star Wars fan. She loves reading, socialising with friends and keeping fit in the gym.
James is a legend.
Rarely seen without his baseball cap firmly attached to his head, James is one of the longest serving members of the production team at Yeomans.
Always cheerful, willing and ready to turn his hands to anything that needs to be enclosed and prepared for mailing. He holds a forklift truck license and can often be seen doing nifty manoeuvres in front of Yeomans while shifting crates from the mailing house to the trucks that arrive each day to collect the mail.
James is mad about Manchester United. He loves playing Xbox with his three kids. His idea of heaven is relaxing by a river with his favourite fishing rod.
Tracey is both speed and efficiency personified.
With 18 years in the print and mailing industry under her belt, Tracey has all the credentials and experience to be responsible for operating our inkjet equipment. Her exacting standards and ability to instantly spot if something is wrong makes her indispensable in our mailing division.
Tracey is a great book lover and can often be seen immersed in a John Grisham novel or the latest thriller during her lunch breaks. Her other passions include knitting, walking and protecting endangered animals.
