Empowering you to help others

Matthew Burgess

Managing Director

The Founder of Phew, Matthew Burgess is relied upon with his "out of the box thinking" and translating business problems into solutions. Leading the team in surpassing client expectations and delivering their ideas, Matthew is happiest when seeing the fruits of our work with clients, delivering client focused solutions. When not hard at work, you will find him with his children building something or cutting stripes in his grass.

Kirsty Hepburn

Operations Manager

A senior professional with broad experience in all aspects of Business Operations from strategic bid mgmt to the delivery of complex projects. Success built on strong relationships, empathetic management and motivation of teams building trust both internally and with the customer. Skilled in setting up and managing project office, programme teams, business process, compliance and regulatory risk frameworks. Focused on results and attention to detail to deliver business change, thriving in the most challenging environments.

Salma Miah

PA to Managing Director

Used to juggling a busy family, varied interests and a career, Salma isn’t easily fazed, which should stand her in good stead when trying to organise Mathew’s legendary busy diary. Clearly up for a challenge, Salma evidently applies stoicism to all areas of her life – even to celebrities she most admires – hoping to ‘go a few rounds’ with ‘The Rock’, being top of her bucket list.

Hilary Williams

Training & Support Manager

As a keen netball player and coach, our latest team member Hilary has no trouble shooting or juggling balls, which should come in useful for her new position. Putting her best foot forward to support the winning Phew team, Hilary’s limitless energy and expertise is now trained on delivering a faultless customer service to all our customers.

Michael Shreeves

Senior Developer

Michael is our very own action man – not only immaculate in appearance but fully focused on the mission in hand. Determined when breaching the kitchen’s defences, his moves are made stealthier and more silent by the removal of his trainers and padding around in his pristine white socks.

Nick McCallum

Senior Developer

Born to be wild but recently tamed by his brand-new wife Rachel, Nick now prefers to live vicariously through on-line action games and miniature wargaming. His focus and attention to detail prove to be invaluable at both work and play and with a whole army to paint in minute detail, at least Nick will be in command of his troops as the honeymoon period comes to an end and he’s drafted into the kitchen.

Lorraine Green

Business Development Executive

Once Lorraine has you in her sights you might as give in as she will get you in the end. While you may feel she’s like a dog with a bone that won’t let go, her bark is worse than her bite and both her family and friends say she’s really a big softy. Lorraine enjoys spending her hard-earned cash on her creative daughter as well as the cinema, quizzes and shopping.

Lucinda Merriman

Marketing Manager

Born under a wandering star, Lucinda often wonders how she got here but is glad she did. New to the company and keen to shine, she is marketing anything that isn’t tied down, so stand by for the sparks to fly. At home, when not out walking her two rescue beagles, she’s clearing up the mess they make when raiding the recycling bin – something they do on a far too regular basis!
