Simon Marshall (AKA The Chef)– Sales Manager
Simon joined Flint and Flame back in August 2012. A chef with amazing knife skills he was at that time working at 3 different restaurants.
In true Victor Kiam style, having bought one of our beautiful knives and loving it so much he came to work for the company that made it. From these early beginnings Simon’s infectious laugh and completely likeable personality have made him a hit with customers at food festivals and equestrian events across the UK.
He is not only liked by our customers, but also the rest of the sales team who look up to him as the consummate professional and trainer of knife skills. This high regard in which he is held by the teams make him the perfect choice as Sales Team Manager.
Simon Lancaster (AKA The Wolf of Wall Street)
Simon trained as a chef before diverting to the city (via every wine bar on route). With a great eye for opportunity he met Co Founder Steven Mould at one of our events and quickly joined the team. He is now one of the longest standing members of the team and with his Victor Meldrew sense of humour he is loved by customers and colleagues alike.
Simon Boyle (AKA Boyler)
Simon worked in the steel industry and was based in Germany for many years, he was also Sales Manager for one of the biggest BBQ companies in the UK. Simon has a big love for food and an even bigger love for wine and is a legend in his own lunchtime when it comes to outdoor grilling. Simon was poached by our Sales Manager, Simon Marshall who has an eye for talented and inspiring people.
Peter Goodwin (AKA Penfold)
Peter joined our team back in 2013, with a wealth of experience in sales he quickly established himself as an asset to our sales force. Peter is a real family guy and our customers love his genuine, warm character.
Wayne Mottershead (AKA Wayyyyyyyyyyyne)
A chef with a wealth of experience, known for his superior knife skills and northern banter (though more so for his silly hats and crocodile shoes!!) Wayne was recruited at Crufts of all places by our sales manager Simon Marshall to run our northern operations and is an asset and valued member of the team.
Luke Mullaghan (AKA Jimmy Carr with a beard)
With our ever expanding business Luke was taken on to help streamline our back office and warehouse operations as this was his previous role with other companies. After a few months we realised this clearly was not his forte and sent him out into the field as a member of our sales force. In this area he has flourished and found his true vocation. Luke is loved by all for his sincere and warm approach to sales with a belly laugh that is matched by no other.
Brian Stringer (AKA Dangerous)
An incredible chef with a vast knowledge of anything food related, Brian has become a great hit at Costco stores up and down the country. Whilst spearheading our campaigns in Costco he has become known for passing on valuable techniques and tips to our many happy customers.
Gary Bates (AKA The Lovely Gary)
Gary is our longest standing team member. A natural entrepreneur with an attachment to all things ‘Cheltenham’.
