Our Team

Directors

David Beale

CEO

Owner of the Print Search business for over 10 years, CEO David has taken it from strength to strength over that time.

A family man, he has four grown up children, an adopted daughter, plus four grandsons and one granddaughter! Like Victoria, he’s another Print Search animal lover, sharing his 15 acre farm with a (mad) Chocolate Labrador named, Buttons (see what he did there?), two horses and two guinea pigs.

At the moment, he’s spending his spare time learning to ride Western Style.

A sports fanatic with a passion for rugby, football and cricket, David is a team player who believes in leading by example, using his motivational skills to empower and encourage his team.

Victoria Hart

Managing Director

Graduating in the year 2000, Victoria worked with Cooperative Food from 2000-2007 as their supply chain project manager and digital marketing manager.

She has been with Print Search since 2007, rising steadily through the ranks from Account Manager, to Account Director for Pubs and Restaurants, to the dizzying heights of her current role: Managing Director.

Victoria is Mum to two children, two dogs and a pet lobster! An excellent Irish dancer as a child, and multi lingual (slight stretch on the truth there but able to say at least please, thank-you and goodbye in Italian, Welsh and French), Victoria also met her now husband through Print Search. Press-passing her way in to the printers he worked at to build up her print knowledge – she’d have missed out on all this if she’d stuck with River Dance!

Paul Galley

Creative Director

Paul has worked at Caspa as a Creative Designer now for many years having started work here in 1999, and has since progressed to become Creative Director.

He is responsible for the creative output right across the agency, looking after clients like Carlsberg, NUS, Mellors and Robinsons Brewery.

On a personal note, Paul has been married since 2005, and has a son called James and a daughter called Ava. He has been a season ticket holder at Man City since the late 1980’s. Whilst not a typical glory hunter, his years of loyalty have certainly been rewarded with the club’s recent success, although he points out that he has had to watch rubbish football all his life to get there!

Kevin Hart

Production Director

Family man Kevin is Print Search’s Production Director. With over 20 years of experience within the print production arena, he manages the lithographic and digital production units here at Trafford Park.

Married with two girls, a dog called Hazel and several fish, he is a life-long Liverpool supporter and a self-confessed karaoke king His favorite hits are by boy bands Boyzone and Take That (his daughters must love that) and when he has the time, he’s also a keen cyclist and gym member.

On top of all that, Kevin is an enthusiastic expressive dancer. Only after a few beers, mind you!

Sales

Jane Johnson

Account Director

Jane graduated in business and marketing in 2002 following studies in Nottingham and Australia. She joined Caspa a few months later as an Account Exec and couldn’t believe her luck to be paid to market alcohol brands across Student Union bars for NUS and various national pub chains. Highlights over the years have involved a sales promotion for Ant and Dec’s Saturday night takeaway, event management at Yates’s Wannabe final (Leona Lewis’ first big win!) and getting Nick involved in running the London Marathon dressed as a giant pasty! Plus managing a whole host of menu launches, trade marketing brochures and seasonal marketing campaigns in between.

Nowadays she is kept busy account directing projects for Carlsberg UK and very proud of the work the creative studio produce across all clients, even if it takes a few ‘urgent’ email prompts to get there. Things don’t slow down at home either as Jane has two children to keep her busy and still tries to fit in lots of holidays and socialising with friends, when she can drag herself away from emails on her phone!

Debbie Kelly

Account Director

Debbie Kelly is another of Print Search’s longest serving employees, notching up an impressive 17 years, and her loyalty and hard work have recently been rewarded with a promotion to Account Director of Caspa Marketing. Debbie has lived in Manchester for 25 years, but still secretly counts herself as a Southerner.

Mother to 2 adorable children Mia 12 and Ollie 8 and wife to a wonderful hubby of 14 years, Debbie and the family are keen Liverpool FC supporters, despite the constant abuse from the office Reds. Debbie and her identical twin sister (sometimes known as the Real Debbie Kelly) enjoy bargain hunting in the sales and she dreams of one day owning a Mulberry handbag (but she’ll settle for Louis Vuitton or Marc Jacobs if she absolutely must).

Debbie is also another of Print Search’s keen bakers and her beautiful hand decorated creations have graced many of the christenings, birthdays and celebrations of Print Search staff, though she’s far too modest to admit how good she is!

Colin Carter

Account Manager

Lifelong Manchester United Fan Colin Carter has worked for Print Search for 10 years. Starting as a Senior Sales Support in 2007 – he has seen his career develop within Print Search over the years. Now an Account Manager on one of our key accounts his knowledge especially in the Leisure & Hospitality sector has grown rapidly.

Colin is a man full of routine and maintains his regular weekly ‘big shop’. He has a true passion for holidays in the Lake District, especially blowing some steam walking those fells. Time with his family and friends is valuable – whether that’s ‘chillin’ in the home or out enjoying fine foods and restaurants.

Life is ‘peachy’.

Something you may not know about Colin is that he had previously played for Man City at Academy level and is a ‘Chess Champion’ from his younger days…!

Sean Coleman

Account Manager

Sean has been working in client services at Print Search since 2007, before that coming from a transport and logistics background.

Originally from Northern Ireland, Sean moved to Manchester to get a season ticket at Old Trafford before he even had a job lined up, thankfully Print Search stepped in a couple of weeks after his move.

Now happily married with his young son Finley, Sean spends his free time keeping fit and watching half naked men roll around with each other (under the guise or Professional Wrestling).

Anna Ford

Account Manager

Anna has been with Print Search since 2009 and has 20 years’ experience (she just nearly fell off her chair when she worked that out!) in the print industry. Anna started an apprenticeship 4 days after leaving school at the ripe old age of 19 and has previously worked in Admin, Accounts, as a PA, Recruitment Consultant, New Business Generator and currently an Account Manager.

Anna’s time out of work is mainly spent looking after her new baby and also socialising with friends and enjoying a few drinks (red wine is her tipple).

She loves her beach holidays and tries to squeeze as many as possible in each year.

Jeremy Spruce

Account Manager

Jeremy has now worked in the Print industry and at Print Search for over 30 years and seen many changes in both the industry and the Print Search team.

A family man with four grown up sons, one of which has set his life up in Perth Australia and is successfully running his own business, with the other three plying their trade in the UK and living at home.

Jeremy is a keen supporter of the best team in the world Man UTD and has thoroughly enjoyed their unrivalled success over all competitions. As a keen angler he could do with a few tips on how to catch fish! Finally, Jeremy is a keen gardener, a hobby picked up from his parents.

Claire Kerr

Account Manager

Claire went to work straight from school and has been with Print Search since 2006 when the office phones didn’t even have caller id on them and, from memory, carrier pigeon was a popular way of communication! – duly noted: Claire and Rachel Orr celebrated their ten year anniversary this year!

(however that would be nice)

Claire is married to Mark and they have two sons together, Jack and Theo. When she can get away from home life and decorating she loves socialising and nights out with a blue Wkd or two.

Some things you may not know about Claire: Her nick name is pear – apparently her head is shaped like one! She once played the flute at Wembley stadium at an FA cup final– God Save the Queen. Once took part in the Print Search Panthers netball team– that was memorable!

Mark Hoy

Account Manager

Mark is currently an account manager on a sometimes challenging Pubs and Restaurants accounts.

He also is a busy family man with two kids, the gorgeous and opinionated Jasmine and far-too-smart Harvey, and, if that isn’t enough , a puppy with lion-like paws called Cooper. He thinks he was duped when he received the dog as a puppy , hes currently the size of a baby elephant!
Mark is one of the unfortunate season-ticket-carrying United supporters and though he lives just around the corner from the ground he often finds himself getting “lost” on the way home and “finding” a pint or two. Well, a man’s got to relax sometimes!

Kat Szendzielarz

Account Executive

Kat has been with Print Search for almost 7 years, however during this time she packed her bags and said a temporary goodbye to PS to travelling to NZ (amongst other places) for a year and returned in August 2013. Kat has worked in Customer Service all her life and enjoys giving great service and building relationships with clients, so working as a Senior Account Executive suits her perfectly.

She is an avid cat lover! Her 10 year old Cat ‘Tilly’ (who is Male!) is like her child and probably gets more attention than her fiancé!.

Kat and her fiancé Stephen (together for 11 years) like to challenge themselves every year by doing some adventurous outdoor activity. So far they’ve done Skydiving, White/Black Water Rafting and have jumped off Auckland Tower. They are currently planning their next activity for later this year. At the other end of the scale, Kat really enjoys relaxing at home watching a good movie with nibbles, in her PJ’s – Bliss!

Kat is Print Search’s songbird, regularly singing along to the radio. Most of the time she doesn’t even realise she is doing it! (but her colleagues don’t seem to complain!)

Alistair Murphy

Account Executive

Having worked in Print and Design since leaving Salford Uni in 2004, starting out as Mac Operator for a Print Design Company, Al joined Print Search in 2007 as an Operations Executive working with the Pubs and Restaurant Team. He has now progressed to Senior Account Exec with Caspa, supporting the Account Directors and Creative Studio.

Affectionately nicknamed the A-Dog by his colleagues, Al is originally from Scotland although has lived in Manchester since he was 4 years old. Over the years he has lost his Scottish accent and the hair on his head but has managed to gain a ginger beard that he’s very proud of….up-side-down head if you will.

Keen footballer, walker and “extreme” runner (Hell Run, Spartan Race etc) Al’s biggest achievement was completing the MCR Marathon. Since then his body has decided enough is enough and will refuse to participate in such silly activities so is now concentrating on cooking, working on his house, being a Daddy to 4 year old Alice and finally a Cat-Daddy to the recently adopted Tiger (from his neighbour who moved to Oz)

Jayde Bateson

Jayde joined the Print Search team in October 2011 as Operations Executive and has since risen through the ranks to senior sales support.

Kate hates watching (or even hearing) sport on the TV and with the big football obsession in the office, Kate would rather watch paint dry!

Kate is a great asset to the team and her bubbly personality definitely brightens up a dull Monday morning.

Supply Chain

Rachel Orr

Supply Chain

The only Dept at Print Search Rachel hasn’t worked in is the warehouse, and she stresses that will never ever be happening. Despite being a Geordie, Rachel doesn’t deal with the cold very well, as anyone who has seen her at her desk in coat, gloves and blanket will tell you!

Married to the lovely Paul – an honorary member of the PS Football Team, when needed. Rachel has a gorgeous little lady called Daisy who’s 11 – they both love girly shopping days and anything food related. Daisy likes to get involved in the family menu planning each week, wonder who she takes after…

Oh and… Rachel tends to buy print sometimes….

Warehouse

Martin Farrell

Warehouse Op / Driver

Print Search’s longest serving employee, a whopping 34 years, Martin still goes that extra mile for our customers. Where the other delivery drivers will take their parcels up to the designated floor, Martin will go one further and actually put the stock away…..not surprising our clients love him!

A father of 2 and Granddad of 3, when Martin isn’t working he enjoys his grandchildren, water sports, classic cars and gardening – anything that keeps him outside!

Andy Brown

Warehouse Team Leader

Andy joined the Print Search team in July 2018 as our Warehouse Manager. Known as ‘Ab’ or ‘the colonel’ for his desire to keep friends to a timetable and on target, there is no doubt he fits in the Warehouse Manager role very well!

With 28 years of work at DHL Supply Chain across various sites and contracts and 2 years at MDA Fulfilment (at a similar role), he knows a thing of two about the industry!

Happy Clients

“It’s always a pleasure to work with Print Search. From standard printing to our monthly bespoke packs for all 760+ stores, they deliver each and every time. They’ve helped us with some unique projects too including our charity fundraising packs with overprinted boxes and they even produced bunting for us! More recently, we’ve stretched them further with bespoke wallpaper for our reception, window vinyls and vinyl wall lettering around our HQ, as well as a whole host of different sized and types of posters and roller banners. Everything was delivered on time and on budget. The team worked incredibly hard to fulfil what we wanted, made some great suggestions along the way and met our ever changing demands.”

Gillian DonohoeWell Pharmacy

“We have worked with Print Search for just over a year, they are a great team and always go above and beyond to meet our specific requirements which include all areas of print, design, warehousing and despatch to our 140 centres on a weekly basis. Their 24 hour online ordering system means our centres can place orders at any time of the day and night which we find very convenient. I would recommend them to anybody! We initially joined the DCB family in April 2017, the implementation ran seamlessly. 70 pallets of stock was collected from our previous supplier, all of which was counted, re-boxed and labelled to ensure accuracy prior to booking onto the system. The online stock ordering system was tailored to our needs and profiled accordingly. We regularly send out large promotions to all of our 140 centres, Print Search manage the project from start to finish and follow up with the centres to ensure all products are received ready for the promotion start date.”

Laura GordonExplore Learning

“We have always enjoyed a great working relationship with Print Search. Their production quality is of the highest standard and any rare issues have been dealt with in an efficient and professional manner. They are collaborative and support both the venue and our business needs whilst communication across all departments is excellent. We have benefited greatly from making the move to Print Search and I see no reason why this relationship will not continue to go from strength to strength. ”

Rachel MillerThe Lowry Theatre

“I have thoroughly enjoyed working with Print Search, both in relation to printing and dispatching educational material. Their dedicated team are always willing to help, have excellent and responsive communication channels, and listen to feedback to further improve services.
