MEET THE TEAM

Hi – So you want to know a little more about us! That’s great and thanks for your interest! We are Peter and Paul (plus team) – An introduction that normally is greeted with a smile, due to the famous nursery rhyme around our names. We set our business up to bring together the vast experience we both have in consumer products sales and marketing, so we can provide a better solution for clients looking to penetrate the UK retail and consumer channels.

PAUL HUGHES

Retail Sales Director

Paul is known within the business as “The Oracle”. What Paul does not know about selling consumer products into major retailers in the UK is not worth knowing. Paul has supplied every single current retailer in the UK a product over the years in one way or another and has relationships forged from 35 years of successful business dealings under his belt. Paul’s black book of contacts within the industry is worth a million dollars, and an accolade he prides himself on.

Not only is Paul good about speaking “consumer Products” he is also a self-confessed pundit when it comes to his beloved game – Football. Being a lifelong Chelsea fan, he can successfully spend an entire 1 hour meeting slot passionately talking about the beautiful game – and walking out with the all important Purchase Order.

NICOLE THORPE

Director & Office Manager

Nikki is our main driver around our business development, looking daily for the worlds next best thing in consumer products.

Nikki is the one we all watch out for, as head of client satisfaction she cracks the whip if needed.

PETER THORPE

European Account Director - SPACETALK

Peter apart from being a huge motor racing fan and ex- semi-professional rugby player, is the world’s most energetic and enthusiastic sales person on the planet. He literally never sleeps, never stops or slows down on his pursuit for that next deal. He is the life, soul and party of RTM who edges on the more youthful side of the founding partnership.

Peter spent his entire 20 year career in sales, selling everything from pencils to Formula 1 Sponsorship. He is a natural, focused and highly reactive and adaptive kind of guy – who makes things happen. His skills also shine around prospect engagement, lead generation, contact discovery and communication delivery – which means he will put you in touch with anyone you want to be connected to (and sell them a pencil).
