I started in print at the age of 20 but have been in and around our family business most of my life!
It was important for me to work and study in other industries and companies, working in engineering I wanted to build on my interest in motorsport. When full time employment began at Remous Print – I started in the bindery and have worked for a minimum of 12 months in every position in the company, from folding to guillotining, printing to marketing, unloading lorries, shrink wrapping, perfect binding, cutting and creasing , platemaking and .. well you get the point.
It is important to me that I have genuine full and complete experience in every machine or process in the company – something that is missing from a lot of print providers.
I moved into a marketing role in in 2005 and worked to develop our web presence as well as growing our marketshare, a tough time to say the least, this is something you have to do to appreciate and sure we have all been there! Fortunately we worked to our strengths and I was able to create some niche websites we still work from today shortrunbooks.co.uk and shortrunpackaging.com
2007 I moved into Production Management along with Keith, at this time we invested in Management Information System to help run our company more effectively and enable more information for clients. Over the last 7 years has been a challenging but every rewarding time, working to keep our print service relevant and in demand during a massive change in the industry, the internet, changing needs, massive over capacity and a recession has changed the print and graphic arts industry for good, I pleased and proud to have been able to steer Remous Print through this and making us stronger company for it.
In my spare time I enjoy motorsport, racing cars is something I have always done but is sporadic now due to time constraints, three children consume lots of time! I also enjoy martial arts, kickboxing & Jujutsu, reading, personal development, cooking Japanese food and fitness training. Most of all spending quality time with my wife Carla and our three children.
