With over 20 wonderful project managers Wedgewood Britain offers a wealth of experience, wisdom and energy! We understand and focus on very diverse markets and within our UK team we have specialist Project Managers who, among other skills, between them are fluent in French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Finnish, Swedish, Russian, Ukrainian, …and more.
There are no Kung Fu Masters in our team, but we like to adopt a little Bruce Lee wisdom: “Knowing is not enough, we must apply. Willing is not enough, we must do”
Group Managing Director
Partnered by co-founder Alda Ford, Aidan has been MD of Wedgewood for more than 3 decades and is still working hard — so he says. He used to have a life outside Wedgewood but that is now just a dim and distant memory. Nevertheless, Wedgewood’s current and continuing expansion keeps him on his toes… that said, it’s almost time for the next generation to step in — 2 grown-up daughters, of whom he is inordinately proud
Executive General Manager
Executive General Manager of Wedgewood Britain and over 20 years with the company, Jerry surprisingly still has much of his own hair. Originally from Liverpool, he grew up in Oxfordshire and (allegedly) studied languages at Portsmouth University. Passionate about music, film and Liverpool FC! Favourite destination: Scotland …and not only for its single malts – it’s hard to better the atmosphere of a night at a castle with a Scottish pipe & drum marching band finale!
Director of Operations
Vanessa is a native English speaker but an enthusiastic traveller. She grew up surrounded by wild beaches and Scottish golf courses, graduated in Canterbury Cathedral and has made London her home of infinite variety. When she yearns to speak (her fluent) French, she can chat to the girls in the office or pop on the train and be ordering lunch in Paris in less time than it takes to get to her bolthole in the Scottish Highlands.
Deputy General Manager
Originally from Finland, land of the Aurora Borealis, Anna is Wedgewood’s very own “Northern Light”. Despite having been in London for 13 years now, you can talk to her in Finnish, Danish, Swedish, Norwegian – and English! When not at her desk, running the Nordic department (the King of Sweden was a client!), there’s nothing she likes more than picking up some delicacies in one of London’s intriguing food markets and enjoying a picnic with friends gazing at the glorious views of London from the beautiful and verdant Hampstead Heath!
Head of Accounting Department
“Rokhi” came to Wedgewood by magic carpet all the way from Persia, but now, 17 years later, she is a proud British citizen – and for all that time, she has kept Wedgewood’s books in impeccable order – and kept secret her passion for belly-dancing!
