Jack Hearne Sales Team Leader

Jack leads our sales team and ensures that our customer service remains five star. Having been an assistant manager for Paperchase and retail manager for a public art gallery, keeping customers happy and selling stationery have both featured heavily in his career so far.

Jack loves his role as it allows him to speak with customers, manage a lovely team, work in a creative environment and to analyse data - some of his favourite things (in a professional setting!)

Outside of work, Jack is hugely creative himself. He plays the guitar, is often baking up a storm (with the help of his young son) and even brews his own craft beer now and again (beer being something he's very fond of - don't worry, the young son doesn't help with this).

Interesting fact: Jack used to be in a band called 'Fuzzy Logic Baby', who once shared a bill with Professor Green, Tinie Tempah and Katy B.

Favourite notebook: A smooth Pine Green PET-r  for its sustainability credentials.

John Pope Senior Sales Advisor & Project Manager

John is responsible for dealing with new customer enquiries and project managing orders through to dispatch. He has a passion for working in businesses in the creative sector and brings several years of experience from working in the print trade to his role. John is a very happy chap and loves to talk to new people.

Outside of work he enjoys watching motorsports, socialising with friends, cooking and going to the gym to burn off the edible creations that he made.

Interesting fact: John is incredibly flexible and is able to lick his own elbow (you try it!)

Favourite Notebook: Leuchtturm1917 genuine leather, finished in ‘cognac’. It has a vintage look to it.

Finley Gunn Sales Advisor & Project Manager

Finley's experience in customer service started at a very young age; when he was 12 he started working at his dad's barber shop answering the phone, sweeping up and making teas and coffees for customers (he wasn't allowed a pair of scissors in his hands till he was 16 though!) He continued his journey in sales and customer service working for a footwear company before joining us.

Fin himself is a trainer fanatic - he has a collection of over 100 at home, displayed in their own dedicated room! His passion for collecting collaborations with 'A' lister's makes for a visually interesting collection and a shrewd investment - it also means we are graced each day in the office with a footwear fashion show!

Interesting fact: When Finley isn't searching out the latest trainer collaborations he can be found at weddings and parties wowing the crowds with his sleight of hand, performing seemingly mind bending tricks with playing cards.

Favourite Notebook: A5 Wellness Journal in Cumin with a front cover deboss.

Thomas Hoffman Sales Advisor & Project Manager

Originally hailing from the Netherlands, Thomas joins us with a wealth of customer service experience from a variety of customer facing roles in the UK.

In his spare time he likes exercising, watching movies and gaming with his friends (not all at the same time though!)

Interesting fact: Thomas is 'very bouncy' (his words) and once accidentally skied straight off the edge of a mountain ledge (unplanned); landing in heap. He simply brushed himself off and carried on as if nothing had happened; much to the surprise and amazement of those who saw him flying though the air!

Favourite Notebook: A5 Castelli Tucson in navy blue with a deboss (a lovely colour change).

Kayleigh Johnson Sales Advisor & Project Manager

Kayleigh is a real people person; she loves to talk to customers, whether it's about their order, or something totally random! She came to us with years of experience in the retail and care sectors meaning she's a great listener and knows how to give fantastic service.

Outside of work she's an avid reader, mostly of fantasy and sci-fi and enjoys gaming - Saturday nights are 'Smite' night for her. She also has a passion for history and loves a visit to a historical site.

Interesting fact: Kayleigh is a Wiccan (google it - we had to!)

Favourite Notebook:  A5 Soft Cover Leuchtturm in 'sage' with dotted pages

Charmaine Stapley Production Team Leader

Charmaine joins us bringing an array of skills from her previous experience working with vinyl, glass etching and heat transfer processes. Charmaine has a real eye for detail and a passion for creative work.

Being a mother of two boys, spare time is limited, but when she does have a moment to relax she loves nothing more than indulging in a DVD box set, such as 'Sons of Anarchy'.

Interesting fact: Charmaine once woke up on the operating table before her surgery had been completed - an experience she describes as very strange!

Favourite Notebook: Pocket Leuchtturm1917 hardback in Emerald (must be lined paper).

Chris Howell Production Assistant

Chris studied graphic design and worked as a designer, illustrator and production artist in London for over twenty years. One of his roles was as part of the design team applying artwork to aircraft tail fins for the now infamous British Airways ‘World Images’ rebrand.

After returning to the seaside Chris had been working as a picture framer and continuing his passion as an illustrator. Chris's experience from the design and arts world makes him an ideal team member for production.

Interesting fact: Chris played drums in a punk band and has been for tea with Topper Headon of The Clash… rock ‘n’ roll!

Favourite Notebook: Any of the Castelli Tucson range as the colour change when debossed is so impressive.

See Chris's illustrations on Instagram

Tetiana Sokolenko Production Assistant

Tetiana assists with all aspects of production. A teacher in her former life, she's turned out to be a quick learner and enjoys the hands on satisfaction of creating something beautiful.

Originally from the Ukraine, Tetiana relocated to the UK with her two children. When she does get some time to herself she loves to make things - whether food or objects such as leather tablet covers.

Interesting Fact: Tetiana used to be the conductor of a 40 strong choir in the Ukraine.

Favourite notebook: Castelli Tucson in French Blue.

Sue Scriven Creative Artworker

Sue brings many years of design experience from working as a typographer and art-worker in various London agencies. Having worked on prestigious accounts for blue chip clients Sue understands the importance of 'obsessing over the details' which is a perfect fit for Noted in Style.

Interesting fact: As a punk fan (think non-conformity, anti-authoritarianism dressed in leather, tartan, studs and homemade fashion), Sue used to sew herself into her punk trousers before going out.

Favourite Notebook: A5 Castelli Singer Sewn (black cover & orange stitching) - loves the contrasting colours.

Alexandra Uren Finance & Admin Assistant

Alex now works part-time in sales and finance admin at NIS. She previously worked in the sales department, and still enjoys talking to clients and suppliers alike.

She was brought up in Cornwall and loves being by the sea - so much so, that she workes remotely from Cornwall for us! When she’s not in or beside the water she enjoys creating her own home furnishings with her sewing machine. Alex loves to travel and being active and outdoors person -  she loves ski-ing.

Interesting fact: She was a competitive gymnast for 10 years when she was younger - until school exams and injury got in the way.

Favourite Notebook: A5 Leuchtturm1917 notebook in Anthracite Grey with a gold foil.

Laura Turner Business Director

Laura fell into the world of notebooks pretty much by accident when she retired from her first career at the Bar, but she hasn’t looked back since. Having overseen the growth of the company from a cottage industry into its current, ever expanding state, she remains involved in all aspects of the company’s day to day affairs, with a focus on the business and financial side of matters (and needless to say, the legal too!).

Outside of work she is a fitness fanatic and loves outdoor activities such as horse riding, running and cycling and when she's not on the go she's known to enjoy relaxing with a good book and a nice G&T.

Interesting fact: Laura's secret rebellion as a youngster was two tattoos before the age of 18 and a tongue piercing before turning 19 - much to her mother's dismay! She still sports them all now.

Favourite Notebook: A5 Leuchtturm1917 notebook in Emerald.

Gerald Glover Creative Director

Gerald is responsible for the creative direction of Noted in Style and overseeing all aspects of production, including researching new products and branding techniques.

Before growing Noted in Style into the lean, mean branding machine it is today, he ran his own small design agency for seventeen years and prior to this worked for two London agencies specialising in print, branding and web development. Through his experience of working with 'Blue Chip' and smaller companies Gerald appreciates the incredibly tight deadlines that agencies and companies have to work to and has ensured that Noted in Style is geared to be able to meet these.

As a keen kitesurfer he is able to make the most of living and working on the coast. Graphic design, architecture and music are also a passion.

Interesting fact: Gerald has previously built his own house and has just completed another.

Favourite Notebook: A5 swatch due to the endless colour combinations of this mix and match notebook.
