Howard Jones – Managing Director
Founder of the business, after a successful career in the grocery trade. Lover of all things Spanish, keen golfer, cook and dog walker! Responsible for the buying in the business, as well as looking after customers in the Oswestry area, Chester and The Wirral.
Mark Braithwaite – Sales Director
Joined the business in 2009 after spells at Tanners, Liquid Assets and Telford Wines. Considered by many to have a decent palate – must be the big nose! Loves all things food and wine based, but has an alarming appetite for cask ale. Runs the sales & operations side of the business, and looks after his own customers – everything south of Oswestry !
Mel Mile – Sales Executive
Mel has sold many things in his broad career – from mini submarines in the USA to Portuguese flooring tiles! In between he found time to run his own wine bar in North Wales – hence the love of wine. Never short of a tale to tell, and always with a smile to share, Mel works North Wales and Cheshire.
Sian Davies – Accounts
Must be a glutton for punishment! Worked with Howard in his previous business, and then came back for more when Momentum opened its doors. Manages all financial and accounting aspects of the business. Fond of a glass of rose when the sun shines!
Claire Pritchard – Sales Support
Claire joined the business in 2015 after long spells at North Shropshire College, and previously in the marketing department at Richard Burbidge. Tasked with keeping the sales team organised and professional, and co-ordinating sales orders and events. No easy task !!
Paul Goodwin – Warehouse & Distribution Supervisor
Paul’s a lifer – he joined the company on day 1. Has held lots of roles in the business, but for the last few years has run the warehouse with great efficiency, and assisted with deliveries as the business has continued to grow. A very keen guitarist who plays in a band “Timberwulf” – private gigs available by request.
David Richards – Marketing Consultant
David has recently joined us to support our marketing efforts. David has plenty of experience running successful campaigns across a range of industries. When not enjoying a good craft beer he can often be found searching for his golf ball in the trees.
