The Team

The Team

Hello, we are Phew! We’re a team of thinkers, makers and explorers. We approach work and play with interest and experimentation, using our expertise, solidarity and outlook to create meaningful digital products that go far beyond just a good idea and connect with people, just like you.


Matthew Burgess

Managing Director

I’m incredibly proud to lead a team of ingenious people who make our clients' lives easier, using our sector-focused digital products. Outside of work, other than spending as much time as I can with my children, I play club tennis and enjoy woodwork when time allows.

Salma Miah

Business Support Manager

I oversee the daily operations of Phew, by monitoring the performance of our systems, providing reports and presentations of specified targets, to ensure we remain compliant and achieve our objectives. In my spare time, I enjoy going out to eat, especially Turkish food! I have an unhealthy obsession with Dwayne ‘the rock’ Johnson, so I love going to watch his movies with my two teenage children.

Emma Pape

Marketing Manager

I am responsible for devising and executing the Phew marketing plan, whilst helping to build and maintain a consistent brand through a variety of online and offline marketing channels. When not at work, I like to spend time outdoors whether going for long walks with my dog or visiting new areas. I also love socialising and my weekends are typically filled with going out with friends and family. When at home, I like to get stuck into a decent series.

Jelka Ivanovic

Executive Assistant to the Managing Director

I support Matthew and the team as Executive Assistant, with all the exciting objectives and projects we have planned to support our company growth and client success. When I’m not at work, I’m renovating my house with my partner. But when I’m not doing that; I enjoy going to the gym, fine dining, gardening, dog walks and writing my interiors column for local magazine.

Kathryn Rose

Account Manager

My role at Phew is to build and develop relationships with new and current clients, and provide quality service around renewals, contracts and Phew’s offering. I’m always available for a catch up meeting and love hearing about the work our clients are doing to make a difference in their sector. Outside of work, I’m a theatre girl so I’m often found at rehearsals (as a director and as part of the technical team) or watching shows. I also support my fiancé with his equestrian business, R S Jumps. I enjoy Zumba, swimming and history… although not altogether!

Mike Halliwell

Sales Development Representative

I am the Sales Development Representative at Phew, which means I play a key role in the company's growth and introduce our fantastic products to a wider audience. In my spare time, I own a catering company which specialises in chicken wings and that keeps me busy. I also enjoy playing Lacrosse.

Nick McCallum

Lead Web Developer

I ensure that our key software products and server infrastructure are maintained and developed to meet the needs of our clients. Outside of work, I like to play Warhammer and Video games, also a fan of growing beards and trying different types of beer.

Andrew Tate

Full Stack Developer

I am responsible for the development and roadmap of all WordPress websites. Whilst not at work, there’s always something in my house to improve so that’s normally where my time goes. Otherwise I like to read, play video games and spend time with my partner and friends.

Jack Ellis

Product Specialist

I lead client training, as well as provide first and second-line technical support. In my spare time, I spend a lot of time chasing after my son Milo! I’m also a huge football fan – Manchester United, for my sins – so spend a lot of time watching that. I spent 5 years as a chef and I’m still a big foodie so I love cooking for people and trying out new things! I like binge-watching box sets, spending time with my family & friends, and relaxing with a G&T!
