New Business Manager
After a long and successful career in the language industry Hedley took early retirement. Luckily for Gallery Hedley found that retirement didn't suit him. We are extremely lucky to have him leading our Labyrinth Sales Team.
Vicki has two jobs: she is Mrs Marketing here at Gallery, as well a lovely mother of three. She likes reading, music, films and crosswords but laments that she very little time to do any of these things.
She ensures that the world knows about the amazing services that Gallery provide, looks after our website and is so deeply involved in her role she even named her son after one of our products Benefactor. (She didn't really).
Yve is our “lean mean accounting machine” and has been at Gallery almost since its inception. She makes sure that the Gallery finances are always in tip top shape and her mastery of QuickBooks is second to none.
A lifelong Duran Duran fan (but don't let that put you off) and expert gardener, Yve’s many skills faciliate our office running smoothly.
