Meet the team

David Moodie

Managing Director

I am the 'D' in AD! Yes, I'm a proud founder member of AD Merchandise Limited. My role is to set goals, direct, keep the company clearly focused and create an environment that allows and encourages our employees to surpass their own self-expectations. The people that work for AD are the lifeblood of our business. Like me, they are passionate about delivering creative merchandise solutions. Together, we are a 'make-it-happen' organisation. We are also nice people to do business with! I have worked in the industry for over 30 years and in that time I have helped to deliver outstanding products and services to some of the world's leading brands. Even after all this time, rarely does a day go by that isn't inspiring or rewarding in some way. I hope you have enjoyed looking at our website. If there is anything else you would like to know, or I can help you with, please contact me.

Amo Singh

Marketing & Sales Director

I am the 'A' in AD! Yes, I'm a proud founder member of AD Merchandise Limited. You might expect me to say this, but AD really is a dynamic and exciting company to work for. Since our inception in 2009, we have developed and grown into one of the leading suppliers of promotional products in the industry. Our growth has been exceptional. None of this could have been achieved without the incredibly talented and dedicated team of people that work here. In truth, I feel extremely lucky to work with such a great bunch of people. Between us, we deliver exceptional products and services to some of the biggest and best brands in the country. My specialism is marketing strategy, so I'm passionate about delivering 'more than just merchandise'! Our business is here to help your business and that's a promise from me.

Nick Green

Commercial Manager

I joined AD not long after it started and it's been a case of 'hold on and fasten your seatbelt' ever since! This is one fast moving company to work for and it's great! My role is to oil all the parts and keep them moving with slick efficiency. Whether it's booking orders in, sending goods out or maintaining our management information system, it's down to me. The account executives and I aim to ensure delivery of your order, right, first time, on time, every time! Outside work, I enjoy nothing better than watching Manchester City, a bit of blue moon time! After all those years being down in the dumps, we're currently riding high. It is even more enjoyable being able to taunt a certain 'red' in the office of how well we are doing!

Jennifer Wicks

Account Executive

I joined AD in January 2017. Although new to the commercial team, I have over 15 years of experience in the promotional merchandise industry. Over the years I have worked with many different suppliers from the UK and overseas, so I can help find the right product for you, no matter how weird and wonderful! I joined AD for a new challenge and it’s certainly surpassed my expectations to date. I’m here to provide quotes quickly and accurately and to ensure that your order is produced right and delivered on time. Away from AD, I have two children under seven who keep me on my toes! I enjoy spending lots of time with them, family and friends.

Michael Carter

Account Manager

I have worked in the industry for quite some time now; I've been a buyer, supplier and importer of branded promotional goods. I'd like to say that I've seen it all, but that would be untrue. I'm always amazed by the quality of work we do, the new customers we work with and the first class execution of duties by my incredibly able colleagues. My aim is to provide solutions and answers to questions, whether something off-the-shelf or completely bespoke, I will make it work for you. Outside of work, I love sport, particularly rugby, football and cricket. My hobby is playing with Lego (don't laugh!), I've loved it since being a kid; maybe I'm still a big kid at heart!

Kiran Matharu

Commercial Supervisor

Kiran is my name and making sure every job is delivered correct is my aim! I just love being at the heart of what AD Merchandise does. I work at the hub and it's great. Your wish is my command! We have a superb team spirit here and we all pull in the same direction. As the company continues to grow, it creates opportunity and the chance to grow with it. The only thing is, ever since it started it's been having a growth spurt! But, it's the way we like it; the buzz, enthusiasm and excitement is contagious! However, it is my job to keep order and communicate, liaising closely with customers and suppliers to ensure we fulfil orders as required. If you need anything at all, just call!

Steve Ragg

Accountant

I've spent most my working life looking after other people's money in industries as diverse as engineering, finance and property and I can honestly say that AD is the most forward thinking company I have worked for. There is never a dull moment here! My role gives me a really good overview of the business and allows me to build good relationships with my colleagues, customers and suppliers. The finance function here seeks to add value to whatever we do; it's not just about counting the pennies! The business is growing fast and I look forward to what the future holds. Outside work, my children and grandchildren keep me busy and help to spend my money. What little I've got left is spent, or as most people tell me, squandered, on following Oldham Athletic!

Lara Molyneux

Account Executive

I have been employed in the promotional merchandise industry for the last 5 years and I can honestly say that I have loved every second of it to date. The marketplace is dynamic, the people in it are so enthusiastic and it’s exciting and fun to be part of. It is also deadly serious and you feel that what you do really does matter, because it does! I work alongside Nick and Kiran, we have developed an excellent understanding and make a great team, even though I say it myself! Our aim is to meet your needs and turn your dreams into reality. There is never a dull moment here at AD, just the way I like it! Outside of work, I love to spend time with my husband, family and friends.

Steve Harrington

Designer

Not a lot of people know this, but a very famous designer once said "Graphic design will save the world, right after rock and roll does". Well, I can't play the guitar or drums, so I guess I'll have to rely on my 20 years in the design industry instead! One thing is for sure, AD is an exciting company to work for and my job is far from boring. I find there are usually three responses to design work; "Yes", "No" and "WOW"! Well, "Wow" is the one I always aim for. There's not much I haven't tackled, but the branding, marketing and selling of promotional merchandise allows me to use fresh ideas, imagination and creativity to play a part alongside functionality. Together, we'll make it look right and work for you.

Stephanie Doyle

Account Manager

I am the newest member of the AD family having recently joined as an Account Manager. My background includes 15 years in the promotional merchandise market with a recent spell in retail. My focus and drive is upon delivering the very best customer service, whether that be through listening, suggesting and offering the right products, delivering the goods promptly, or giving clear and concise communication. I’m loving being a part of the AD team who all help and support each other daily and are always willing to offer advice or lend a hand. Outside of work my husband, 2 children and the dog are my world, we enjoy long walks, bike rides, the gym, cinema visits and a good box set.

Jenny Shaw

Accounts Assistant

I joined the AD team as an Accounts Assistant in November 2016. I work alongside our Accountant, Steve Ragg, in the Accounts Department. I bring over 15 years extensive experience of working within a high transactional environment. My role is to assist Steve in all accounts administration, systems and procedures. In particular, I look after credit control and the purchase ledger. I aim to build strong working relationships with our customers and suppliers and provide excellent lines of communication. Outside of work, I am a mum to a two year old daughter who keeps me very busy; I love being a mum! We enjoy eating out and quality family time at weekends, especially walking our lion dog, Manny the Chow.

Adam Cheeseman

Account Executive

I recently joined AD on an apprenticeship scheme. The company is fast-growing and an exciting place to start my working life. The office has a real buzz about it and everyone is so enthusiastic and friendly. AD have offered me a real job opportunity with the mentoring and support I need to succeed. I am looking to learn the skills and qualities required for me to be an excellent administrator. Hopefully, I will soon prove my worth and quickly become a valuable member of the dedicated and passionate team here. Away from work, I enjoy catching-up with my friends and playing football. I am a Manchester United supporter and enjoy going to watch the team play. It’s handy for me that AD is located so close to Old Trafford as it makes it easier for me to get to mid-week games after work! To sum it all up, I’m really looking forward to making a career for myself at AD.

Margaret Hamblett

Account Executive

I joined AD as an Account Executive in February 2016, bringing 10 years of invaluable industry experience with me! The team here are enthusiastic and thrive on delivering a first class service and I’m proud to be part of that. Primarily, I’m here to make sure that jobs are administered correctly, produced right, delivered on time and within budget. My main aims are to provide excellent internal and external communications and make sure that all our customer needs are met. Outside of work, my 6 year old daughter keeps me very busy! When I do get some spare time, I enjoy reading and spending time with my family and friends.

Katie Wiggins

Account Manager

I have worked in the promotional merchandise industry for over 10 years and thrive on the diversity it brings. From managing the development of a product from conceptual design through to delivery, designing a range of bespoke clothing for retail, to setting up and managing corporate schemes, it all makes for an exciting and rewarding career. Working with such a fantastic team of people is a real privilege. Everyone at AD has exceptional product knowledge and is committed to making sure the client has the best experience. Complacency is definitely not the ethos of AD. In fact, I’m not sure if that word exists in the AD dictionary! We are empowered by our Directors who encourage, inspire and support us to keep moving forward. Outside of work, I have three children who keep me very busy! I also like going to the gym and especially enjoy spinning and vibe cycle classes. And, I have just bought a bike, so I’m hoping to have some outside adventures with my little family.

June Cannon

Account Manager

I recently joined AD as an Account Manager and I am extremely excited to be part of the team. I am a marketing and sales professional with over 20 years’ experience in the promotional merchandise industry. I have vast knowledge and considerable know-how in all aspects of the trade from design through to delivery. I am highly driven and focused on meeting customers’ needs. My aim is to supply the right branded products to support a customer’s corporate marketing activities and promotions. Outside of work, I like going to gym and especially enjoy Zumba classes! I also love a good old natter with friends on long walks at weekends.
