David Beale


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, one granddaughter and another on the way before the end of the year! 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.

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!

Melissa Beale

HR and Office Manager

Mel is joining the team at Print Search having recently graduated from Nottingham Trent University with a degree in Equine Sports Science – a far cry from the printing world! But following on from six months volunteering in South Africa and Japan, she discovered a passion for working with people that lends itself perfectly to a career in HR.

Away from the office, you’re soon to find Mel in her walking boots and weighed down by a heavy backpack as she begins training to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise money for Meningitis Research Foundation.


Debbie Kelly

Account Director

Debbie Kelly is another of Print Search’s longest serving employees, joining the company back in 2001. 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, 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!

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).

Colin Carter

Account Manager

Lifelong Manchester United Fan Colin Carter has worked for Print Search since 2007, starting as a Senior Sales Support – 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…!

Anna Ford

Account Manager

Anna has been with Print Search since 2009 and has over 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 daughter Cami 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

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.

Jeremy is a keen supporter of the best team in the world Man United 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!

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!

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.

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 and being a Daddy to Alice.

Kate Leahy

Account Executive

Kate joined Print Search in April 2017 and is now one of our Account Executives. Kate is mum to 4 year old Oliver who is “absolutely crazy!”. Kate and Oliver enjoy swimming, trips to the park and spending lots of time with her nieces and nephews. 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! She also has a killer gold fish called Nemo who ate his two companions, Dory and Bruce…That’s not how we remember Finding Nemo! Kate is a great asset to the team and her bubbly personality definitely brightens up a dull Monday morning.

Nicola Matthews

Account Executive

(Yet another) Man City fan. She enjoys watching Ice Hockey, her favourite team is the “Leeds Chiefs”. Enjoys going for walks with her daughter. They have memberships for Chester Zoo and go regularly.

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 – 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….


Martin Farrell

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. I would highly recommend Print Search for those looking for a reliable, timely and friendly service.”
