We’re a lovely bunch here at Phineas, and we’re all a little (oddly) obsessed with this shoe hanger malarkey.
With years in this industry, it’s safe to say we know our stuff. So if you have any questions, we’re here to help.
Our head office is based in Paintworks - a vibrant and creative district in Bristol. A previously derelict industrial complex is now home to many of todays most exciting businesses – and we’re super proud to be part of it.How to find us
Chartered accountant Will takes care of the finances here at Phineas. A wizard at graphs, charts and analyses, he transforms complex data into simple information, which is then used to make important business decisions. Will loves to challenge himself, and he doesn’t do things by halves. He’s ran no less than 7 marathons, competed in the 22-mile ‘Man versus Horse’ race, and perhaps his biggest achievement to date, he’s finished epic novel ‘Moby Dick’ – an over-whale-ming piece of literature that defeats many of its readers.
“I’m one of 7 siblings”
“The PP234 because like me, it’s tall, slim and multipurpose”
One of the longest serving members of the Phineas team, Retail Consultant Laurence provides a warm and knowledgeable welcome to all our new customers, and manages our European accounts. She also co-ordinates our marketing material and makes sure our website is looking spick and span! Laurence came to England from France in 1991 to improve her English and can now say ‘Worcestershire sauce’ almost perfectly. Despite our best efforts, Laurence is yet to be enticed by the delights of a nice, hot cup of English Breakfast tea…but she’ll never say ‘non’ to a glass of red wine!
“I walked the Tour du Mont Blanc with my family… and 3 donkeys who carried our luggage.”
“The PP112, because it’s very classic yet indispensable. I love the versatility of it - it can even be used to close coffee sachets!”

Originally joining the team as Sales Administrator, Ellen now looks after some fantastic Phineas accounts, whilst continuing to keep on top of the admin work. She’s also the go to for any writing required by the team – whether it’s content for the website, a blog piece or even a particularly tricky email, Ellen’s always got the words to help! Passionate about nature and the environment, Ellen has helped the office reduce its day-to-day waste production by putting systems in place that make it easy to recycle and save energy. When the weekend comes around, Ellen is usually back off to her hometown in Cornwall to be by the sea and spend time with her dogs.
“When I look a dog in the eyes, I know what it’s thinking”
“The PP62 because it’s wiggly and quirky yet incredibly functional.”
There are always exciting projects going on here at Phineas, and Project Manager Nick oversees them all. Whether he’s testing something new or developing an existing product, Nick’s all about the making and fixing! Outside of work, Nick is the Group Chairman of his local Scouts group, and every December he sells Christmas trees on their behalf. With such jolly charm and festive cheer, he didn’t keep us fooled for long, we soon discovered that our Project Manager ‘Nick’ was none other than the big man himself- St Nick! Don’t worry though, he manages his hectic December schedule effortlessly, and continues to succeed in his role here at Phineas.
“I’ve walked the entire 102-miles of the Cotswolds way, and I’m currently working my way along the 138 miles of the Wye Valley Walk.”
“PP260, I’ve really enjoyed being part of the development of this hanger using recycled plastic”
Once upon a time, many years ago, Dawn Ponting joined Phineas Group as a Sales Administrator. Fast forward to present day and she’s now Sales Account Manager, dealing with all of our lovely customers and finding solutions to every single one of their shoe hanging requests. Dawn succeeds daily in making the team laugh, and she’s happy and positive 99% of the time. 1% of the time she’s upset about fully grown adults riding micro scooters; she strongly believes this mode of transport is designed strictly for children.

PP154- because flip flop season means summer is here!
This is Operations Director, Jo. She knows a thing or two about running a business and makes sure that everything is in order for a seamless and productive day, every day. Jo’s secret to being successful is caffeine, and as long as she’s got a coffee in her hand, the Phineas team can trust she’ll have the answer to their questions (work related or not)! When she’s not busy strategizing and planning, Jo likes to relax by taking a walk with the Phineas Product Testing Manager – Daisy the dog!

Meet Managing Director, Dan Wright! He’s managed to ignite a very niche passion for shoe hangers in all of us here at Phineas.
