Meet the teams
Our management team
Having trained at Mountview Theatre School in Stage Management & Technical Theatre, Ben worked extensively as a technician in Oxford and London in both theatre and contemporary dance. After a spell in the leisure industry, he joined Flints over twenty years ago. When not at work he likes nothing as much as pulling on his walking boots and seeing what is out there.
Technical Sales Director
Barry joined us in 2016 bringing with him extensive experience of technical theatre, having previously worked for prestigious companies around the world, including the Royal Opera House Muscat, Oman. Barry works closely with our clients in Film and Television and those based in the Middle-East. A passionate lover of ballet, Barry attends as often as possible.
After training at Rose Bruford, Dave spent a few years freelancing around London and producing shows at the Edinburgh Fringe, before joining us as a sales assistant in 2004. Since then, he moved through customer service and into management, and now ensures all our operations run smoothly. He still dreams of returning to the Fringe one day.
Customer Services Manager
Talia’s background in stage and production management has stood her well to deal with all the weird and wonderful enquiries that come in. Having gained her sea legs as Head of Stage Staff on cruise ships, Talia then became a land lubber and joined Flints 10 years ago, and it’s fair to say she’s loved being a part of Flints ever since. The best parts of her role include working with all our fantastic customers, and seeing the products come to life on the stage and screen. Since her time on ships, her love for travel has never waivered and she hopes to continue as the world begins to open up.
Hannah has worked for Flints for over 10 years, having started as a picker/packer she now runs our marketing team. Hannah took an unusual route to where she is, first getting a degree in Chemistry, and then working in Canada and South Korea as a Ski Instructor.
Having started out as a picker/packer in the warehouse, Jay quickly became supervisor, and then in 2017, manager. When he’s not at work you can find him on stage playing guitar with his band 7Suns.
John has been working in Purchasing at Flints for over 20 years and has seen a lot of supply chain changes in this time! He is a keen cyclist who also loves picking up the guitar but not necessarily at the same time.
Andy has been with Flints for nearly 20 years, he started by looking after credit control, analysing data and producing management figures. As Finance Director he now works closely with many areas of the business, but a spreadsheet is never far away.

Deanna-Marie has long been a fan of theatre, especially musicals, which led her to training in Lighting and Stage Management at Mountview, before working in industry. When pressed to pick a favourite musical, she said "probably Hamilton, and I know 95% of the words!" On the weekend, she often enjoys going for a more immersive and social experience like escape rooms. Fun fact, Deanna-Marie grew up trampolining competitively!

When not harassing our customers, she enjoys dance in all its forms, and theatre. She is often to be seen at Sadlers Wells or one of London’s many art galleries.
