Meet our team

Malcolm Little Executive Chairman
Malcolm Little Executive Chairman

Founder and Executive Chairman.

Often found behind his desk wondering how the hell did this happen!

Having worked all his career in the packaging industry, Malcolm constantly seeks to change and grow the business and as a result, is often in uncharted territory; whilst regularly challenged, this is what still drives him onward.

Bloody nice suits though…

Tom Smith Managing Director
Tom Smith Managing Director

Since his arrival at Advanced Dynamics in 2015, Tom has progressed from Sales Manager, to Sales Director, to Managing Director – but would still prefer to be riding his bike around the Alps!

Tom has been instrumental in the growth and ongoing development of the business, expanding both the range of equipment and diversity of industries that we serve.

There is only one thing that Tom cares about more than the company and that is his customers. If you are picking a team, he needs to be your first choice.

Vicky Kershaw Executive Assistant

If dynamite comes in small packages, this gal’s one hell of an explosion!

Stewart Mansell Engineering Manager
Stewart Mansell Engineering Manager

This poor chap currently holds the record for the longest-serving employee!

From the very early days, Stewart was the very first to join Advanced Dynamics. Since then he has been in the thick of every machine we have supplied and has a knowledge base that you only acquire through 20 years of graft and commitment.

All sounds great but he’s a Leeds fan!

David Thwaites Operations Manager
David Thwaites Operations Manager

A devoted Liverpool follower, literally, all over the world with the reds.

A long serving, loyal lieutenant of the business who is not just able to keep his fingers in many pies, we think he actually owns the bakery! He has an astonishing ability to oversee numerous situations at any given time; he is the glue that holds it all together.

Oh… and did we say he is a Liverpool fan?

Trigger (AKA Matthew Green) Sales Manager
Trigger (AKA Matthew Green) Sales Manager

Often described as the best looking Ginger on the planet! …LOL.

Matt started with Advanced Dynamics in 2014 as an engineer, but soon realised his passion was in sales, and he’s done a damn good job for the past four years which has seen him land the role of Sales Manager for the Company.

Vanessa Lewis Sales Executive
Vanessa Lewis Sales Executive

To quote Aston Martin – Power, Beauty, Soul!

Whilst not wanting to reveal her age, Vanessa served in Her Majesty’s Royal Navy and was one of the very first WRENs to go to sea.

She has all the attributes you will need from our sales department, she is kind, caring and considerate whilst remaining hard as nails!

Ciaran Dickson Sales Executive

Just look at him… yeah, we laughed ‘n’ all!

Ian Parkin Production and Planning Manager
Ian Parkin Production and Planning Manager

A top bloke and bloody hilarious!

One of the newest members of the team, Ian has the distinction of once working for one of our biggest customers, Hallmark Cards. Ian is the type of character you’d love to join for a pint, he’ll be your main point of contact from order to delivery and should you place an order with us, prepare to meet a friend.

Katie McIlvenny Financial controller
Katie McIlvenny Financial controller

The most un-accountant like accountant you’d ever have the pleasure of meeting. A self confessed lover of numbers, she manages this whilst retaining a personality that will light up any room.

A talented musician with a degree in music and an overwhelming enthusiasm for everything, no, really, everything!

Daniel has actually played football for England.

…in the under 13 girl’s team.

Joking apart, Danny has actually represented England in the beautiful game… go’on lad!

Damon Coleman Technical Support Engineer
Damon Coleman Technical Support Engineer

One of our senior support engineers. To say he loves mechanics is an understatement, he actually has a milling machine in his dining room… I know, and he’s still married!

Jack Wade Technical Support Engineer
Jack Wade Technical Support Engineer

We think Jack must have a second income because he’s only 24 and he’s had more fast cars than Malcolm! A rare young gentleman, he knows his stuff and will go above and beyond for anyone.

Jack Crowther Technical Support Engineer
Jack Crowther Technical Support Engineer

By far the most infectious smile known to man! A great bloke with a personality to match. He is as loyal as you can get; despite their recent relegation, Jack attended every single Huddersfield Town match and still kept smiling.

Up the Terriers!

Daniel Clarke Technical Support Engineer
Daniel Clarke Technical Support Engineer

Daniel is a fully trained multi-skilled engineer with an electrical bias and significant experience of preventative maintenance and breakdown cover on machines.

…He is a rugby league fan and no stranger to a pint glass, so he is not only a first class engineer but also a great fit for the team!

Ben Starkie Technical Support Engineer
Ben Starkie Technical Support Engineer

Having completed a traditional mechanical engineering apprenticeship, Ben served his country in the Royal Navy for 6 years  and retrained as a multi-disciplined electro-mechanical engineer. So, his experience of working on equipment with s***, fur and missiles flying about makes him a great addition to our already damn-fine engineering team.

Oh, and he’s just built a bar in his back garden!
