Meet The Team

 “Meet the people behind Sheffmed; some support Sheffield Wednesday, not all are from Yorkshire, others should have retired 20 years ago but one thing binds us all, a genuine love for what we do, what we stand for and the legendary Christmas party!”

Team-Alan

Alan
Director

Alan started life out in the forces before joining the NHS and working in procurement. In 1991 Alan joined the private sector and so began his career in sales and marketing.

Before establishing Sheffmed with Sonia, Alan was responsible for export sales in Asia Pacific for Downs Surgical.

Alan is married with 2 dogs called Ruby and Dotty (which are spoilt rotten) and loves cycling. He has completed an iron man triathlon and is always planning another adventure whether it be on a bike or an assault course.

Team-Sonia

Sonia
Managing Director

Sonia looks after the internal running of the company, although her main job seems to be chief dog sitter. She graduated from the University of Central Lancashire with a degree in European Business and initially worked for Aesculap/Downs Surgical before starting Sheffmed with Alan.

Sonia is always up early to exercise, but only because she enjoys eating too many chips and chocolate, and is the chief organiser of the Christmas party. She is married to her long-suffering husband Lee and together they have three dogs and three cats – all named after chocolate!

Team-Maxine

Maxine
Quality Control

Max has been with the company for 18 years and we have only been going for 16, yes it does feel that long. As Rod Stewart's second wife, Max is at least 6'7" - we have had to raise the ceiling and have a chair specially designed (borrowed from Wimbledon).

Max keeps the warehouse boys in check and manages the QA side of the business with ruthless efficiency. She is married with two kids and is chief hamster sitter for the bank holidays.

Team-Mike

Mike
Sales Consultant

Mike graduated from university with a degree in Health Sciences and went into the clinical research field; eventually publishing work within the Journal of Clinical Physiology & Functional Imaging. Since starting with Sheffmed Mike is responsible for sales in the south and Wales.

Being a northerner and wishing to explore the south of the country (whilst simultaneously explaining the broad Yorkshire accent), he refuses to settle in any one spot, as he has recently moved for the third time in under 2 years.

Team-Gemma

Gemma
Sales Consultant

A force of nature best sums up this young ladies energy levels. Looking after the east side of the country together with Scotland Gemma has a wealth of knowledge on surgical instruments.

Outside of work Gemma jumps around with glow sticks and rides a horse with no name.

Team-David

David
Sales Consultant

David manages our sales in the North West and Midlands. All his previous jobs have been specialising in customer service and he took up his first role in the medical industry when joining us at the start of 2015. With 3 young children, he is very much a family man and enjoys the relative peace and quiet of going out to work!

In his spare time, he likes to put himself through watching his beloved Bolton Wanderers and is looking forward to teaching his eldest how to swing a golf club (again, something to do with peace and quiet!). 

Team-GemmaN

Gemma N
Administration

Gemma is our newest member and decided that reforming with the Spice Girls was not for her and wanted a normal stable place of work. After failing to find that Gemma joined Sheffmed and is looking after the customer service function.

She is now the closest to the kettle, cough cough.

Team-Joel

Joel
Marketing Apprentice

Joel is the new apprentice in the company working alongside Sian handling digital marketing. In his spare time, he likes to play pool in the local pub or listen to metal in his bedroom. He has a wolf head statue between his speakers, and yes, his wallpaper is black.

Team-Craig

Craig
Warehouse

Quickly promoted to Head of Refreshments and in his spare time Craig supports the best team in Yorkshire, Sheffield Wednesday, this is usually followed by one or a few beers with mates. (Never to forget the result though!!) Previously worked as a technical Sales Advisor for a plumbing and heating merchant.

Team-Paul

Paul
Warehouse

Bold, bearded, tattooed, cycling hipster with a wicked sense of humour Paul is our newest member. Having just returned back to Sheffield after serving 32 years in the army he has both our appreciation and respect. He has a love of cycling, beer and coffee er and of course Mrs Williams!

Media Co-ordinator

Sian has not long since graduated from university with what is possibly the longest degree title in history (English and American Literature and Culture, for those who are interested) and now works for us in the marketing department. She enjoys festivals, has an unapologetic love of Meatloaf and, being a bit of a hippy, wants to own a farm one day.

Charity

Thornbury Animal Sanctuary

Thornberry is a small independent sanctuary that has been taking care of abandoned and neglected animals in the South Yorkshire region since 1988.

They pride themselves on their ‘no kill’ policy, which means that the animals in their care stay for as long as it takes to find them their forever homes. Funding comes solely from public donations and they hold weekly bric-a-brac sales to maintain their high standard of care and quality.

Thornberry Animal Sanctuary

West Yorkshire Dog Rescue

A Registered Charity managed by Committee on a totally voluntary basis. They have a policy that every dog coming into their rescue is treated with love and respect and given the utmost care. They take dogs from owners who are unable to keep them and unwanted strays from pounds. Their rescue dogs are fostered in homes so that their behaviour can be assessed in a family situation.
