Here’s where you get to meet some of our people:
Peter Hayes – Joint Managing Director
Peter is our science of management guru. After gaining his credentials at the University of Manchester’s Institute of Science and Technology, he became a veritable master in the art of marketing.
Peter has more than 10 years at Boots, Beecham, J&J and 3i, and near on 20 years consulting as a Quadrant founder. So he has an ever-expanding bag of solutions and ideas to call on, especially if it’s anything to do with new product and proposition development.
He says that as a born optimist, being a Sky Blues football fan is less stressful – but that it can make horse racing quite expensive.
Mike Bell – Joint Managing Director
With Mike, you’re getting years of expertise, from brand manager to board director at companies like Thorn Radio Rentals, venture capital group 3i and Gillette. We say he’s the best a man can get!
Mike helped to found Quadrant and has worked for most of our clients. But he really shines when he’s involved in business planning and channels to market – particularly sales forces, branch networks and contact management centres.
His special subject is anything that comes up in his local pub quiz – which means ‘everything’.
William Annandale – Managing Partner
William came to us in 1997 from a marketing career at Unilever and Grand Met. Taking on the responsibility for new business development, he has helped us achieve significant growth in new sectors. His specialist subjects are market entry design and implementation. And to show that we can both design and do, William has also acted as a hands-on locum general manager.
As house editor for our eZine, Dimensions, William also gets to show Fleet Street the talent they missed out on.
Jonathan Ambrose – Associate
Jonathan’s passion is for sailing. And you can often see him, at weekends, sailing his dinghy on Datchet Water or the Solent. Perhaps it was his geography studies at Cambridge that have given him such good navigation skills.
He left Cambridge for one of the finest training companies for brand management and business development, Unilever. It was there that Jonathan learned the basics of customer experience in food brands, which he later took to Cadbury Schweppes and Trebor Basset as marketing manager.
With his unique blend of brand management and business ethics, we have found his skills invaluable when advising our clients on how to manage their corporate-social responsibilities (CSR).
Lynne Stainthorpe – Associate
We come to Lynne when we’re looking for The Big Idea.
Lynne has client-side experience on some of Britain’s best-known brands and has worked in many marketing roles, from brand manager to marketing director. She got her early training in brand development at Unilever. Then she went on to Beecham (now GlaxoSmithKline) where she ran brands at the profit and loss level, and provided motivation for creative agencies to deliver their best output.
With her own consultancy, Big Idea Brand Management, Lynne delivers branding solutions that are provocative and practical for clients from retail to B2B.
Mike Cobb – Associate
Mike is known as our turbo enthusiast, because of the speed of his uptake in interests as diverse as helicopter piloting, yacht mastering, gun dog training and saxophone strangling. He is highly valued by our clients in the increasingly specialised field of information security.
Mike is trained and qualified as a Microsoft Certified Database Administrator (MCDBA) and his interest in data security has led to him becoming a Certified Information System Security Professional (CISSP) and Information Systems Security Architecture Professional (ISSAP).
Pauline Amphlett – Associate
Pauline is our specialist consultant in name creation and intellectual property rights. She is a director of Brand Guardians IP and has been providing these specialist branding services to a wide range of clients for 20 years. Having worked both agency side with design consultancies and client side as a consultant for many and varied businesses she understands the pressures and nuances of building brands and identities.
Pauline works with many government departments, public bodies, service companies and consumer brands as well as providing support for creative agencies and their clients.
Peter Franklin – Associate
Peter brings a wealth of experience from the energy and utilities sector. His career in industry spanned senior roles in strategic planning, marketing and sales management in both oil and energy utilities. He has also been on the management teams of two successful energy start-ups and therefore brings hands on knowledge of the pressures facing rapidly growing organisations. Peter has contributed to the development of the industry itself as President of the SBGI (Society of British Gas Industries)
Through his firm, Enstra Consulting, he delivers industry analysis, decision support, business improvement, and proposition development to the oil, gas, electricity and water sectors both to the players in the industry as well as to companies looking to market into the sector.
