James Ruddy


Favourite colour: Pantone Orange 021C

Pets: Buddy Ruddy, an eleven year old Lakeland Terrier with attitude

James is the newest member of the team and possibly the most enthusiastic man on the planet, which makes him fit in perfectly at Colourmaster NIP. When he’s not playing Padel Tennis he also manages to run Eclipse Colours in his spare time.

Hilary McCarthy

Strategy & Leadership

Favourite colour: Purple

Pets: Hector, a cheeky 2 year old Cockapoo & Jinx, a witch’s cat

Socially awkward and with no attention to detail, Hilary is kept as far away from the customers and company systems as possible. She spends her days plotting world domination and playing football with Hector in the car park.

Eddie Thurloway

Sales & Business Development

Favourite colour: Red

Pets: We’re going to get him a puppy for Christmas (shhh, don’t tell!)

Blessed with a wife who bakes the most amazing cakes, Eddie is the charmer of our team. He wants to be an Astronaut when he grows up, but for now is settling for stratospheric sales performance at Colourmaster.

Ruth Bouzidi

Sales & Account Management

Favourite colour: Blue

Pets: Harley, a loveable black Labradoodle

Her exotic tastes (favourite food: Chicken Tikka Anakarli), love of travel (best holiday souvenir: a husband) and sunny personality keep us all entertained. One day she plans to open a lost dog’s home, so if yours “goes missing” – you know where to look…

Jessica Clinton


Favourite colour: Pink

Pets: Johnny, a zooming Working Cocker Spaniel & Minnie and Betty, two noisy cats

Our longest serving employee, Jess has lots of experience in keeping us all in line. She’s a mathematical genius and devil for the detail, so woe betide you if you press the wrong calculator button… Her top skill is carrot control.

Michal Kucek

Warehouse & Facilities

Favourite colour: Red or blue

Pets: Biscuit, a shitzu with one brown and blue eye

One half of our awesome Polish Army, Michal keeps the wheels on our forklift truck, getting orders out pronto and making sure the shelves are stocked with a rainbow of colours. He’s also a wonder to behold on a bouncy castle!

Andrzej Guzniczak


Favourite colour: Orange

Pets: Lexi, a Heinz 57 dog with an endearing personality

Making up the other half of our great Polish Advantage, Andrzej is the newest member of our team and is still finding out what he’s got himself into. Don’t worry – we’re all on our best behaviour ????
