Paul Newby
Paul NewbyDirector
Paul is the Founder and Director of Office Bridge Solutions. He set up, operating under a franchise back in 2005. After building a very strong business, Paul decided the time was right to move on alone. There have been up’s and down’s over the years, but his hard work, dedication and determination remains. Moreover, building a successful Office Products business is now coming to fruition, as he builds his team around him.

Paul is a football mad Evertonian, but despite being a ‘bitter blue’ he is very much a ‘family man’. With three girls of his own and grandchildren to both his eldest daughters, Paul is very busy.

Mike Astbury
Mike AstburyDirector
Co-owner and Director of Office Bridge Solutions, Mike joined Paul and Gill in the Business in September 2014. Paul and Mike had known each other since 2005 and had built a friendship and understanding over the years. Mike’s experience and ability is a fantastic asset. Within weeks of joining us Mike had brought all of his customers over to Office Bridge.

Mike is a family man and has three young children, so life is rather busy. He still attempts to play Football for a vet’s team in Cheshire and torments many defenses on a regular basis. We like to work with a smile on our face and Mike helps with his jokes and office banter. The down side to having Mike here is that he supports Manchester United…Oh well we can’t have everything.

David Brown
David BrownLogistics
David joined Office Bridge Group in July 2019 and has integrated into the team quickly already knowing how everyone likes their hot drinks in the morning before he picks, sorts and delivers all our orders to all our lovely customers. He always has a smile on his face and works hard to make sure our customers receive their items on time.

David loves spending his spare time with his wife and kids and supports Leeds United Football Club which doesn’t go down too well in the office as some of the other staff are Manchester United fans. He is also an avid fisherman and when not delivering your orders, he can be found on the banks, trying to catch some big fish (few and far between).

Gill Yeo
Gill YeoFinance Manager
Gill was the first of Paul’s recruits and since she started Gill has proved invaluable to Office Bridge Solutions. Successfully chasing invoices dating back 5 years, the office dragon has implemented systems within the accounts department. From doing this, Office Bridge has grown into what they are now. A self-motivated member of staff with a strong hunger, helping steer success at Office Bridge.

Lovely Gill adores family life and dotes on her Nieces, Nephews and God Children. She loves Christmas shopping! However, Gill buys presents throughout the year to annoy us when she announces everything is bought and wrapped. She is usually done by August! That’s what I call being organised. A very strong minded individual who knows exactly what she wants. If you know what’s best, shower Gill in gold and pizza and you’ll be in a strong position.

Matt Eaves
Matt Eaves Operations Director
Matt joined Office Bridge Solutions in 2015 and brought with him enthusiasm and a wealth of experience. He has worked in the industry for 15 years in numerous roles including Manufacturing, Operations, Purchasing and Sales. Therefore, Matt was the ideal fit for a rapidly expanding company. The impact he had was immediate and helped Office Bridge Solutions to move up to the next level. He secured corporate clients and streamlined logistics. Still to this day he continues to help us grow.

Our very own class clown and Matt was quickly given his very own hash tag #MATTISM. Coming out with phrases such as ‘’The Vienetta (Vietnam) War’’ and ‘’I’m not too shabby with these calculators’’. Always presentable and Matt takes care of his appearance. Until his new brown shoes need polishing, that is, ‘’my shoes are brown and polish is black’’. As an avid fan of Warrington Wolves, he doesn’t take too kindly to the great relationship we have with Widnes Vikings.

Matt Grainger
Matt GraingerGraphic Designer
To begin, Matt has only been with Office Bridge since November 2018. The progress we have made in this time has been remarkable. As an old friend of Mike’s, the pair have always discussed being part of a successful company. Additionally, Matt’s hard work, determination and passion for design has shone in his work. Our customers have been so pleased with the products, they come back for more!

Furthermore, Matt’s talent exceeds from printing and video graphics all the way to company branding. So, if you are searching for promotional items or visual content, Matt is your man! If that isn’t enough, Matt also juggles his own company, ‘Vinyl Soul’.

Finally, Matt is a family man and spends his spare time with his children, taking them as far as Atlanta for a cheer-leading competition. Although Matt is extremely busy, he still finds time to support Manchester United.
