Meet the Team

John Petty

Managing director

John Petty

Managing director

You could say printing ink is in John’s blood. He comes from a long line of printers going back to 1865 with Petty & Sons. It’s a family business he loves and one which he continued when he founded JPS Limited in 1996.

With more than 45 years of experience, there really isn’t a question, print or paper, that John wouldn’t be able to answer, or that he hasn’t been asked before.

His experience is invaluable to our clients and their campaigns. With John they know that their project is in capable hands with time served expertise and passion.

He specialises in web-offset, gravure and sheet fed printing and all types of volume binding.

Bridget Petty

Commercial director

Bridget Petty

Commercial director

Bridget is the heart of JPS Limited. She comes from a family of printers so it’s no surprise that in 1997 – after a successful career working in repro at Scan Kolor Limited, then in publishing at American Express, Condé Nast and RR Donnelly which spanned 28 years – she joined her brother  John to manage JPS Limited.

Since then Bridget has never looked back and JPS Limited has not only grown its loyal client base considerably, but also the team and its awards cabinet.

It’s this marketing experience that allows Fiona to get closer to JPS Limited clients. She understands first-hand the pressures and challenges felt by marketing departments, how they work and what they need in a print management partner.

She’s the person marketing teams want on their side to guide them through a project from start to finish.

Her passion lies in luxury retail brands and publishing and exceeding client expectations.

Sharron Wilyman

Sharron Wilyman

Key account manager

Sharron has a close eye for detail, especially when it comes to print finishes, is very organised and a great listener – the perfect combination for a key account manager at JPS Limited.

She joined JPS Limited in December 2015 bringing a combined 20 years of experience in the industry having held positions with Great Northern Envelopes, Lexicon and Catalyst.

She has earned the title ‘Envelope Queen’ in the office. You name it, when it comes to knowledge of envelopes and sheet-fed production Sharron is the go to person.

 

Natalie Bishop

When Natalie joined the team in 2016 she brought with her 20 years of experience in the print industry, mail order and direct mail.

She previously held the role of print production controller at Otto UK overseeing leading fashion brands such as Freemans, Grattan and Look Again – a role which took her across Europe to oversee their press passing.

She’s a self-confessed magazine addict – an interest which was probably fuelled during her time at Polestar managing titles such as GoodFood, Top Gear and Hello!

Natalie manages the whole print management process, from brief to delivery and nothing gets passed her eagle eyes.

Zoe Gibson

Junior account manager

Zoe Gibson

Junior account manager

It’s fair to say Zoe is a fashionista. Her career started in fashion, completing a degree in its promotion, production and design and owning a couture business.

Her role is varied – from assisting with huge price comparison spreadsheets, to managing projects for her own clients, to dog walking, no two days are the same – and that’s just the way she likes it.
