David Hobbs is the fifth generation of his family to hold the position of Managing Director. David was encouraged to gain business experience beyond the family business and therefore qualified as a chartered accountant prior to joining the business in 1982. David later became Finance Director working for his father Peter before taking over the role of Managing Director in 1990.
David is supported by Graham Bromley who has over 30 years service with Hobbs, having joined as an apprentice and progressed to his current position of Deputy Managing Director. During that time Graham has overseen the operational development of the business and continues to direct Customer Service and Production along with his strategic role of ensuring that our operational facilities meet the demands of our clients.
Terry Ozanne is the relative newcomer, joining the business in 1997, having held senior positions within the software industry. Terry oversees our existing clients and works alongside colleagues in progressing new business opportunities across the markets we serve.
As a responsible employer it is important that we put something back into our communities and to this end David has a role on the South East regional board of the British Printing Industries Federation as well as providing business advice to a number of local charities. Both Graham and Terry continue to provide personal support and practical assistance to schools and associations locally.
Consistency and stability are important factors within our business and our ability to develop our skills and services is done in the knowledge that we have no financial debt. All investments are made from our own reserves and our clients find this reassuring as business continuity plays an ever-important part of their own strategic planning.
