We like to think of ourselves as a friendly bunch, read on and find out a little more about us.
Glenn Coombs AKA 'The Boss'
As Director and Head Designer for the last 20 years, Glenn has full involvement in the day-to-day running of Shelleys, making all the big decisions and doing a little bit of everything.
He has to have a coffee at 9am, 10am and 11am, tea at 1pm and 3pm and then another coffee at 4pm to keep him going! We think he may be addicted to caffeine.
Glenn wishes for - more sleep re: 2 young kids and a baby!
A love for food, cycling and village life and his spinney chair from DFS!
Mark Richards AKA 'Mark 2'
Mark started in the printing industry in August 1981 as a compositor and letterpress printer. With his ambition and hunger, he moved on to run and manage some of the largest sheet fed printing machines in the world. Mark has been part of the Shelleys team for over four years.
In Mark’s spare time his three wonderful daughters keep him very busy; however, when he can get away you will find him up the little green hill playing golf and often putting through 2 inches of rainwater!
Linda Townsend AKA 'The Enforcer'
Linda’s main role at Shelleys, where she has worked for nearly 15 years, is managing the accounts (and anything else which is thrown at her, including keeping the male staff in order and knowing how everyone takes their tea!)
Five children have kept Linda extremely busy over the years and outside of work she loves playing badminton and spending time with her family, which is growing by the year!
A fan of watching live bands and has been to Reading Festival (only for one night mind!), loves Ryvita and a slice of malt loaf!

Smaller and lighter than any jockeys currently riding and can do very good impressions of people’s mannerisms!
