We believe the relationship between our customers and the people at Princeps is really important so here are some brief details about the people you will speak to or meet.
Dan Hughes - Managing Director
Responsible for: smooth running of the company, making sure customer's needs are met, keeping the team happy, managing sales and future developments.
Dan trained as an aircraft engineer but soon moved into the world of distribution working at different times for a franchise distributor as well as an independent distributor. He held a number of sales and account management roles including setting up an independent office in China.
Dan spent two years in China during which time he worked alongside the China - Britain Business Council. Back in the UK Dan's 16 year experience in franchise and independent distribution enabled him to review the marketplace and decide that no-one was really offering the quality of service plus partnership approach he knew he could achieve. So in August 2006 Princeps was born.
Dan is equally as focused on providing a supportive environment for his team encouraging everyone to have input into the direction of the company.
Ian Walker - Operations Manager
Responsible for day-to-day operations including management and control of quality systems including parts quality, counterfeit detection.
Ian was one of the original Princeps employees, joining Dan at the start up. He has worked in component distribution for over 10 years. Prior to this Ian worked in Quality Management within the chemical manufacturing industry, and as a quality inspector and researcher in a polymer laboratory.
Ian joined Princeps because he felt this was a company truly focused on quality and a role in which he could really have an impact helping to establish it from the outset.
Neil Taylor - Sales Executive
Responsible for customer contact and communications both on the phone and via personal visits.
Neil is certainly versatile and has held a variety of roles in a variety of industries including a franchised distributor, a computer company, a bar and more recently he was a director in his own T-shirt printing company.
In February 2010 Neil felt he wanted a new career direction so joined Princeps - the company appealed to him as it is clearly well run and managed and has a real sense of direction. Neil is keen to use the opportunity to be involved in shaping the future direction.
