Dominic Blakey

Managing Director of Gould Publication Papers

Starting his career at Express Newspapers in the advertising department, Dom spent 5 years there before being persuaded to join Salehurst Paper in 1993

In 2004 Salehurst became part of the Gould Paper Corporation and was merged with P3 paper when he took on the role of Sales Director for the two companies, since renamed Gould Publication Papers UK.

Dom's experience is predominantly with catalogue and mail order companies as well as magazine publishers in the UK, Europe and N.America, advising on and providing cost effective printing paper solutions. When not at work or entertaining his children Dom is a fair weather tennis player and an improving cook. He does not spend as much time as Darren at the gym.

Darren has worked in the Publishing Paper business for 20 years now, the last 10 at Gould.  Originally from an Ad Sales background for a publisher in Oxford, and before that schooled in Cheltenham and the Middle East (Abu Dhabi). 

Now his role oversees the Operational side of the business coordinating both of the external and internal teams.  Out of work he is a keen water-skier competing for his local club, and is known to spend far too many hours in the gym.
