hanger malarkey. With years in this industry, it’s safe to say we know our stuff. So if you
have questions related to sustainable product hangers – we’re here to help.

You’re in
good hands

All our hangers are thoroughly tested in our very own mockup shop. Not only does this put our creativity to the test, but it enables us to intuitively predict the performance of a product in store.

Will Carter
Will Carter
Financial controller

Chartered accountant Will takes care of the finances here at Phineas. A wizard at graphs, charts and analyses, he transforms complex data into simple information, which is then used to make important business decisions. Will loves to challenge himself, and he doesn’t do things by halves. He’s ran no less than 5 marathons, competed in the 22-mile ‘Man versus Horse’ race, and perhaps his biggest achievement to date, he’s finished epic novel ‘Moby Dick’ – an over-whale-ming piece of literature that defeats many of its readers.

Interesting fact:

“I’m one of 7 siblings”

Favourite Phineas hanger:

“The PP234 because like me, it’s tall, slim and multipurpose”

Laurence Hooper
Laurence Hooper
Retail Consultant

Another long-term member of the Phineas team, Retail Consultant Laurence provides a warm and knowledgeable welcome to all our new customers. She also co-ordinates our marketing material and makes sure our website is looking spick and span! Laurence came to England from France in 1991 to improve her English and can now say ‘Worcestershire sauce’ almost perfectly. Despite our best efforts, Laurence is yet to be enticed by the delights of a nice, hot cup of English Breakfast tea…but she’ll never say ‘non’ to a glass of red wine!

Interesting fact:

“I walked the Tour du Mont Blanc with my family… and 3 donkeys who carried our luggage.”

Favourite Phineas hanger:

“The PP112, because it’s very classic yet indispensable. I love the versatility of it - it can even be used to close coffee sachets!”

Ellen Rusga
Ellen Rusga
Sales Administrator

Sales Administrator Ellen is responsible for ensuring that all orders go out on time, in full and in style. Passionate about nature and the environment, she also oversees waste reduction in the Phineas office and is tackling single use plastic by inflicting the most intimidating of scowls upon anyone who dares bring in a ready meal for lunch (trust us, you don’t want to be on the receiving end of one of these!). When the weekend comes around, Ellen is usually back off to her hometown in Cornwall to be by the sea and spend time with her dogs.

Interesting fact:

“When I look a dog in the eyes, I know what it’s thinking”

Favourite Phineas hanger:

“The PP62 because it’s wiggly and quirky yet incredibly functional.”

Sarah Yeomanson
Sarah Yeomanson
Operations Assistant

Sarah joined the Phineas team in July ’18 as Operations Assistant, and she’s been in extremely high demand ever since. The Op’s Director and Project Manager fight it out daily for her undivided attention, but there’s never any need for violence as Sarah’s the Queen of multitasking and wears her many hats with ease. Sarah’s diversity continues outside of the office, spending her weekends travelling the continent, learning DSLR photography and even getting rapped to by Eminem..

Interesting fact:

“I was once featured in the London Metro newspaper’s ‘street style’ section.”

Favourite Phineas hanger:

“The PP137 because it supports the shoes I live in – Ankle boots.”

Nick Box
Nick Box
Project Manager

There are always exciting projects going on here at Phineas, and Project Manager Nick oversees them all. Whether he’s testing something new or developing an existing product, Nick’s all about the making and fixing! Outside of work, Nick is the Group Chairman of his local Scouts group, and every December he sells Christmas trees on their behalf. With such jolly charm and festive cheer, he didn’t keep us fooled for long, we soon discovered that our Project Manager ‘Nick’ was none other than the big man himself- St Nick! Don’t worry though, he manages his hectic December schedule effortlessly, and continues to succeed in his role here at Phineas.

Interesting fact:

“I’ve walked the entire 102-miles of the Cotswolds way, and I’m currently working my way along the 138 miles of the Wye Valley Walk.”

Favourite Phineas hanger:

Dawn Ponting
Dawn Ponting
Sales Account Manager

Once upon a time, many years ago, Dawn Ponting joined Phineas Group as a Sales Administrator. Fast forward to present day and she’s now Sales Account Manager, dealing with all of our lovely customers and finding solutions to every single one of their shoe hanging requests. Dawn succeeds daily in making the team laugh, and she’s happy and positive 99% of the time. 1% of the time she’s upset about fully grown adults riding micro scooters; she strongly believes this mode of transport is designed strictly for children.

Favourite Phineas hanger:

PP154- because flip flop season means summer is here!

Jo Abraham
Jo Abraham
Operations Director

This is Operations Director, Jo, the other boss here at Phineas. She knows a thing or two about running a business and makes sure that everything is in order for a seamless and productive day, every day. Jo’s secret to being successful is caffeine, and as long as she’s got a coffee in her hand the Phineas team can trust she’ll have the answer to their questions, work related or not! To be fair, a strong, black Americano is an absolute must when you’re simultaneously directing a business, being a mum and training for a marathon. Wine also helps!

Interesting fact:

“I have danced with the Moscow City Ballet & sung a duet with Johnny Vegas”

Favourite Phineas hanger:

PP146 – it may be small, but it gets the job done perfectly!

Dan Wright
Managing Director

Meet Managing Director, Dan Wright! He’s managed to ignite a very niche passion for shoe hangers in all of us here at Phineas. Dan is exceptionally creative and is always researching and developing ideas to make our products not only the best on the market but also the most sustainable. Dan’s energy continues outside of the office, whether he’s surfing waves, snowboarding mountains or riding bikes, he’s always on the go.

Interesting fact:
