Meet the Stinkyink Team

Stinkyink wouldn't be the company it is without the people that work here. These individuals do everything from answering the phone and shipping your orders, to sorting the accounts and wrangling the bits and bytes that make up our website. If you want to find out more about our team you're in the right place.

The Management

Andrew PierceManaging Director (also answers to "Sith Lord Pierce")

Andy took control of Stinkyink early in 2016, ready to drive us forward, with ideas and creativity flowing. He is a keen Spreadsheet man and Footballer, a formidable combination. Specialising in goals and strategy, he's the Pep to our Messi-tech-team and will keep Stinkyink ticking over at the cutting edge of website and customer service performance. He supports Wolverhampton Wanderers, which we've all managed to forgive him for, so you can too. He's alright, really.

John SollarsNon-Executive Director

Mr Stinkyink himself, John is the original owner and starting-point for all things He built the company up from its inception in 2002 on the pillars of fantastic customer service, great value and treating customers like friends, before passing over the reins to Andy in 2016. He can still be found helping out on the sales and customer service desks, sometimes even getting his hands busy in the warehouse, if you time it right you might get to talk to him yourself. Give him a thanks, we wouldn't be where we are today without him.

Purchasing and Finance

Laura MorrisManagement Accountant

Laura is an Aston Villa fan. We'll give you a moment to let that sink in and digest....... You okay there, reader? We were shocked too. But it turns out that, as well as possessing a superpower with numbers and finance, she's sickeningly good at golf. So if we're nice to her, maybe she'll teach us. She does have an Aston Villa lunchbox though, I'm not sure we're strong enough.

Roy HamiltonPurchasing Ewok

Otherwise known as McRoy, to avoid confusion with our now-retired previous Purchasing Manager of the same name, McRoy keeps our quality products ticking over. A Scotsman in charge of buying, we're aware that truckloads of Irn Bru is on the way, but it's worth it for how low he keeps our prices. He supports Manchester United, plays Fifa and Poker, all while refereeing Ice Hockey in his spare time. Pretty impressive for an Ewok. We'd tell you why he's known as an Ewok, but it's a bit too traumatic for us to relive. #EndorThings #NeverForget

Customer Service Superstars

Tara WardCustomer Service Wizard

The customer service team leader, Tara handled her first ever issue with "sorry it's not playing cricket". This instantly made her a Stinkyink favourite, and coupled with her outstanding brownies (they're all ours, mwahaha) and knowledge of golf, it's as if she's always been here. She's really, really tall, which makes her ideal to be team leader as she's easy to find in a crowd.

Victoria MillerCustomer Service Hobbit

Victoria is the newest Stinkyink recruit, joining our expert Customer Service team to somehow, implausibly, make it even better! An impossible task, we know, but holy moly is she giving it a go. She came in and announced herself as the Stinky Hobbit, whilst introducing us to the wonders of elevenses. Just don't ask about the hairy feet.

Steph HughesCustomer Service Wookie

Our newest Stinkyink'er! Unfortunately for Steph, the way our email naming works just makes it look like she can't spell her own name, so if you speak to her on the phone feel free to call her "Ste-fuh-fuh". She spends her time aceing sales calls and harrassing Matt on his lunch break; by golly this girl can talk. All the better for you as you'll have a lovely chat if you run into her on the phone.


Sandra WilsonHead of Stores

Sandra oversees our despatch department, ensuring all of your orders get processed, packed and shipped the same day you order, each and every working day. With the all-powerful authority relating to how many free-pens and business cards you get with your order, without her there would be anarchy in the stores... Well, maybe not that bad, but she definitely helps.

Joy GrubbHead Store Assistant

Joy is Sandra’s go-to woman, with an incredible ability to get things done. A warehouse picking machine, the rate Joy can get through orders really is something to behold. With a keen eye for accuracy and attention to detail, Joy is also making herself a name as a website critique, frequently pointing Matt towards the latest issue to be addressed. Looking to get to know Joy? Just mention photo paper and she can talk to you for hours, she loves the stuff.

Jenny FranceStore Assistant

If it needs picking or packing, then Jenny is the woman for the job. Faster than a speeding bullet, Jenny helps to ensure your ink gets out of the warehouse and on the road in a jiffy!

Glynis NormanStore Assistant

Ah, Glynis Norman. The fact you can spell 'Angry Lion' from her name is truly ironic, as she's the soft spoken, calm head in our stores. You can almost sense the care and attention that went into her packaging when you open your delivery, and all of our cartridges are better off for it.

Marketing & Hamster Pictures

Matthew BirdResearch, Marketing and Analysis

Matt is the resident statistician at He keeps customers up to date with our helpful money-saving tips and user guides, coupled with number-crunching to find that next big opportunity. Received an email? It's from him. Been annoyed by an ad? Yup, that infernal Matt. His only photoshop skills involve hamsters and it's a little known fact that, somewhere on Stinkyink, there is a hamster hidden and waiting to be found. Good luck.

The Surgeons

Richard GrundyHead of Development

Rich heads up our very own geek squad to ensure our website and back end systems are the best they can possibly be. We wanted something witty here but Rich would remove it anyway, abusing his website power.

Paul DannWeb Developer

Paul helps streamline the entire Stinkyink online experience to make sure our website is ridiculously quick and easy. See that button there you just clicked? Paul made it awesome. This very text you're reading? Paul had nothing to do with it, so don't jump to conclusions. Paul hates that.
