Nick has previously held key account management and business development positions over the last 14 years gaining his experience most recently in the automotive industry and previous to that in the book wholesale sector. Nick joined Cavalier in June 2014 to manage both new and existing clients, developing relationships and ensuring that we continue to provide the high levels of service and communication which our clients have come to expect.
Nick and his partner have a young daughter and a black Labrador called Pippa. He enjoys long walks with the dog, gardening and spending time with family and friends. He also likes cooking, playing tennis, and when he gets time, can be found carp fishing!
New to our market, Nick brings with him a wealth of experience gained in other sectors and looks forward to speaking and meeting with our wide range of customers to understand their business needs and help with their requirements.
In his role as Commercial Director, Alastair works closely with Nick, overseeing quotations and dealing with client enquiries / queries. Overseeing the IT department, if you have a technical question regarding data or need advice on print or design give him a call.
The ‘oracle’ of all things mailing, data, print and postage, if you need to enquire about something, Alastair usually has the answer. With a diverse background including sales, fulfilment, account management, web / email marketing, event management and print procurement Alastair has built up a wealth of knowledge that you can tap into.
Outside of work, married and a father of two, he is a keen DIYer and is the treasurer of his local football team Costessey Sports playing a key role in organising their Annual Youth Tournament.
Business Planning / Production / Deliveries / Scheduling
Our Managing Director, Paul Middleditch has been with the business for over 17 years and has overseen a number of important changes to the structure of the company and the mailing business as a whole. Joining the company after leaving the RAF, Paul’s organisational skills have helped build and develop the business.
Paul is responsible for running the production and overseeing all commercial activities. Ultimately it is his responsibility to get your job completed on time, even though, as is more often the case, with ever shrinking time-scales.
Karl is responsible for account managing jobs as they progress from quotes to orders, through the data and production process to completion. He will likely be your first port of call once your job is ‘live’ to discuss delivery of stock, issues with data and will present you with proofs for your approval.
Karl recently joined Cavalier Mailing after a long career in the records storage management and has a keen eye for detail.
Get in touch with Karl if you have a job in progression that you would like to discuss or have queries with.
Nigel joined Cavalier Mailing in February 2001 as Finance Manager coming from a re-insurance and oil industry background. “I would like to think these industries have given me a very diverse outlook on business practices and strategic processes.”He enjoys all sports watching, especially football and cricket and participating in White Collar Boxing events training at Elvo’s White Collar Boxing Club. Married with three children Nigel is a well travelled individual and has spent time training in accounts and business administration in Austin, Texas.
Nigel is also responsible for keeping a tight grip on business overheads, maintaining our environmental and recycling policies and enforcing our health and safety regulations.
Alison joined Cavalier in 2015 and has 30 years of experience, mainly in the manufacturing industry. She spent a year travelling around Australia and worked for a time in Sydney.
Ali (as she likes to be called) has three cats (Emma, Jade and Sophie) who are all re-homed from Venture Farm Cat Rescue at Mattishall. In her spare time she enjoys planting and picking at her allotment but leaves all of the fun jobs (weeding and digging) to her husband. “New balls please”, a keen tennis fan, has been to Wimbledon several times.
Alison’s role, as her title might suggest, is assisting our Finance Director. This includes raising and sending invoices and of course responding to invoice and payment queries. Alison also works on a range of other tasks within the business working closely with Emma.
Martin certainly wouldn’t be considered an IT ‘nerd’ but it’s fair to say that he data crunches all the working day. Your data processing is in safe hands and Martin has a keen eye for detail and will often spot issues with presented data that might miss the less observant eye. Martin’s role revolves around the handling of client data, manipulating and presenting in a useable format and providing client’s with a breakdown of what we have received, what we might have amended / removed and what ultimately we will be posting.
Martin joined in 2006 and outside of work he enjoys playing five-a-side football (he’s also a lifelong ‘Gunners’ fan) and socialising with friends. Martin must be proud of his legs because he wears shorts all year around!
Tom joined Cavalier in 2015 and spends most of his days working through your data in spreadsheet form. Boring, I’m sure to most, but Tom lives to ‘crunch’ your information!
Working closely with Martin, he will prepare and process your data files, produce reports and prepare proofs for your approval.
It’s not obvious from his photo but he manages to bring a smile, and a groan to those around him with his ‘odd’ sense of humour. Out of work Tom enjoys eating waffles (don’t ask!) and is affectionately known as Tombo (again don’t ask!).
