The Team

Jeff Hall – Managing Director

Jeff set out on his working life as a mechanical engineering apprentice for Rediffusion Flight Simulation gaining experience of all the facets of a corporate manufacturing company, achieving an HNC in ME. He then pursued a career in sales, working for Loctite and Xerox, before setting up Benchmark Reprographics in 1991. Jeff provides the strategic direction for the business but also has a very hands-on approach and can be found operating the printers (when it’s all hands to the decks!).

Elizabeth Hall – Director

Elizabeth has worked in several different industries, from airport to local government, mainly in administration roles. She is continuing that experience being responsible for the administration and finance of the business.

Peter Daws – Operations Manager

Peter started his working life as a Print Delivery Runner and has worked in most aspects of a reprographics company. Peter joined Benchmark in 1995 and has worked his way through the ranks. Peter is responsible for the everyday operation of Benchmark, he is still running around to ensure all our deadlines are met, using his great eye for quality – sometimes referred to as Mr Quality!

Andy Squires – Sales Executive

Andy has worked in the print industry for eight years and has covered most print methods. Andy is responsible for sales and looking after our existing clients. With his friendly manner, he is also very keen to meet new clients – don’t be scared, he doesn’t bite!

Nick Gibbs – Digital Print Operator

Nick joined Benchmark in 2010 having worked in the print industry for over 30 years. There’s not much he doesn’t know about print. He is also trained as a Graphic Designer and you can find him tinkering with artwork ensuring the files are print ready.

Mark Ellis – Print Operator/Driver

Mark is our ‘cheeky chappie’ having joined Benchmark in 1996. He works in both the print room and delivery office, with 25 years experience. His passion, though, is the printed brochure of his beloved local football club, Crystal Palace. You have been warned!

Monty – The Office Dog

Monty visits the office regularly and, like Andy, he doesn’t bite either! He has been around the print industry most of his life – his best bit of the day is lunchtime! Unlike the staff, he likes to sit, have a rest, and watch them working!
