Who we are

Phil Lowe, Chartered Director, Chairman

Phil Lowe

As Chairman, Phil is responsible for the relationships with our investors and funding partners, for international projects and our long-term corporate strategy.

Before people4business, Phil spent 17 years providing advertising, editorial, circulation, distribution and finance software and services to the newspaper industry across many regions and languages.

After leading a series of mergers and acquisitions which combined Matrix Publishing Systems, Cybergraphic, Geac Publishing Systems, Media Command, Atex and Gazette Technologies to form Atex Media Command (AMC) he took on responsibility for operations generating $55m turnover through 200 staff across the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Africa, Asia and Australasia.

In 2005 Phil was retained by one of Brazil’s largest media groups, Associados («»), to advise them on their future e-commerce strategy. His responsibilities with them have included selecting and deploying a web-based permanent recruitment platform.

He is currently a non-Executive investor in various internet-based businesses, and has served as an advisor to the USA’s leading provider of e-commerce software and services for the advertising and publishing industries, AdStar Inc. (Nasdaq: ADST), and as a Director for a number of organisations outside the media sector, including a UK-based market research company, an international PR agency and a telemarketing business for the medical sector.

Judy Clay, PR

Judy Clay

I graduated with an English literature degree last year and expected to end up doing something a million miles away from writing. Luckily, after only a few months of odd-jobbing, I started working with the lovely team at People4. I work on the press and publicity side of the business and spend my time writing and researching articles for the news pages, updating our social media pages, and getting the views of our experts on the latest events in the business world.

I’m always keeping an eye out for interesting stories from our Clients and Candidates, so feel free to get in touch!
