Meet the Team
Here you can meet some of the lovely people that work at PlatinumHPL.
Constantly striving to achieve the best for her customers, Sam loves to keep busy! When she’s not out visiting customers, Sam is likely to be found running in the beautiful Yorkshire countryside or out walking her crazy Beagle Dottie.
The pocket rocket (or so he thinks). Amiable and often trying to be charming :-) Andy loves true meaningful client relationships where his knowledge of the industry ensures the advice given fits the bill. A passion for horse racing and a bit of a Poet Laureate now his legs can’t carry him as quickly round the pitch.
Another runner! 5ks 10ks, Halves, Marathons, Ultras from parks to fells and over Mountains. Shotokan karate enthusiast and once a competitive Cyclo cross racer he’s now a keen chain gang rider. Most importantly a family man, supporting his wife or kids in their own events or just getting outdoors and dirty with the kids and bagging another mountain Summit or 2!
Kept busy looking after my 2 boys, 3 boys including the husband! Love being outdoors, running, walking and chasing the boys round Harlow Carr. Also like the occasional glass of prosecco at the end of the day. Chatty, bubbly personality and great at forging relationships with clients. Nothing is too much trouble, Emma is on the case!
Katie makes sure everyone is paid on time and keeps happy! She may sit in the corner at the back but that doesn’t mean she’s a quiet one – With a little one, a crazy beagle, metafit and running she is kept busy – a glass of bubbly always helps at the weekend.
Purchase Ledger & Admin
Erika is the name and marketing is her game! Erika is a busy mum with 2 boys wreaking havoc. She has a serious shopping habit much to her husband’s annoyance especially taking up all the space in his wardrobe with her shoes and bags!
David is our big boss one of the initial company pioneers. Encouraging each and every Bloomer to be and do their best. He is a true print enthusiast, recognising print’s true potential in every format. David’s passion for the team shines through in every pitch and conversation. He’s a bit of a petrol head too …
Marina is the financial brains of the outfit and with David one of the initial company founders. Extremely efficient and organised in work and life with a passion for running and pilates. Mum of two and a second tongue of French to ease passage on the winter slopes.
Suzie is the office dog. She can be found snoozing under desks or sniffing round the canteen looking for a tasty treat. Just dont leave your sandwiches or wallets unattended.
Front line client relationships are what Jane does best. Detailed, down to earth, savvy and uber chatty, Jane has wealth of experience across all sectors and is also the driving force of the estimation team for over 20 years. As a wife, mother and running enthusiast the weekends fly by.

A highly experienced account handler and promotional gifts expert, always up for a laugh and a big fan of early doors with the girls. Loves adventure and time with the family, it has also been said she can talk for England but who are we to judge!
Account Handler & Estimator
Sam is a fairly new addition to the PlatinumHPL family, but has settled in so well it feels like he has been here forever. With a previous role working for a kitchen outfitters the move to print has been a little different but he has taken to it like a duck to water. A lover of paintball and drumming, we are just glad he cant bring either into the office.
Katherine is pasta mad with a love of horror movies, the colour blue and anything Marvel. She is a keen horse rider but her true love is her Yorkshire Terrier Tess.
34 years in print trade, across packaging, magazines and directories. Lover of family time with ankle biters 8 and 11 in the fresh air walks and camping as long as it Includes beer and fire. Avid follower of Carlisle United, coach of local under 11s and still playing regularly. Lover of cinema, gigs, pub quizzes and 80s new wave music.
Twin boys !! A multitasking expert without a doubt. Juggles design projects and web2print with ease. Precise and gets right to the point, grasping client needs quickly, oh and did I mention, pretty damn tall!
A busy lady, juggles liasing with clients, production and admin to ensure things fly through the system. Loves her holidays, has an enviable tan, a true local girl and a PlatinumHPL stalwart.
With over 40 years in the print trade and 30 years married, Kevin’s interests are film, music, reading and photography. Occasionally partakes of the odd bevy. Despite these (or because of) hobbies, Kevin is still determined to grow some spuds before the slugs get to them.
A talented pre-press and Web2Print specialist, Paul is also a Man United fan as well as enjoying watching cycling and triathlon races. If he isn’t busy taxiing his son to football games and travelling the country with his daughter to diving competitions, then drinking craft beers and watching films are high on the agenda, along with a bit of DIY. He is also a secret Kylie fan!!!
Pre-press & Web2Print Specialist
Anthony is our Commercial Manager constantly looking for improvements within the business to ensure our customers get the best quality in the fastest lead times. He is also planning the future of Platinum with 6 figure investments and lots of exciting new developments on the horizon. After spending 5 years living and working in the Middle East, Anthony is glad to be back home with his wife and baby girl Hannah.
Our dedicated and super experienced production manager Matt, keeps our printing wheels turning and everything running ship-shape and on time. Home is a nice new house with his fiancé, within in walking distance of the local bars – oh the freedom!
With 21 years’ service and a move to production supervisor, Nigel is kept busy being a taxi driver to his 4 children and wife of 20 years. A Leeds United and Formula 1 fan keep his weekends busy and a promise of taking part in next year’s Ripon Bike Ride should keep him fit. Although we did hear a rumour it was just for the cake! He has an identical Twin brother, but we have never seen them in the same room together!
With 19 years experience in Print Finishing and Direct Mail, Paul is a welcome member to the team. He is a keen Leeds United and Rhinos fan but with 4 children doesnt always get a chance to be there.
Over 20 years in the print trade focusing on pre-press and digital print, Richard loves to spend his time cycling and swimming. He loves walking the dogs and watching films with his wife and two kids but seems to be constantly doing DIY.
