Meet The Team
Tim WookeyManaging Director & CoFounder
After a fulfilling senior career in Marketing working both agency and client-side, it was time to follow my dream to build a business with some brilliant people, and to work in the coffee sector. My love of coffee developed from my time working for the wine industry where I realised that the coffee industry was very similar but terribly underdeveloped in terms of our general understanding around choice, quality, taste and sustainability. I listened to my head and heart and founded amamus with my wife Binny. Together we want to create something that makes us and our kids proud. I also proudly have a Professional Barista Diploma.
Binny WookeyAccount Director & Co-Founder
Having left the corporate world to raise three boys I started to explore work ideas with friends. Some of these friends needed coffee, which I was able to supply. Friends also became clients and together with Tim, we are following an exciting path as we build a business together. I am passionate about the safeguarding of the environment for my children and am determined that we can create a positive change with our actions. I enjoy cooking and love to explore the tastes of new coffees that will excite our clients.
Working as a Marketing Director in the drinks industry I was fortunate to work with a great London agency led by Tim. A great business relationship morphed into a wonderful friendship helped by a mutual love of sailing. With extensive experience in the ‘craft’ beer and cider space I became excited about the 5th Wave of Coffee and was therefore delighted when Tim asked me to join him and Binny on their coffee journey in April 2018.
David BenceCommercial Director
Having enjoyed working widely across the leisure industry for many years in commercially focussed roles, I was delighted to be asked by Tim and Binny in early 2019 to help them develop amamus. Coffee is the second largest traded commodity in the world and although the market is fiercely competitive, there will always be a place for exceptionally passionate teams to build businesses on the foundations of Knowledge, Passion and Service. The amamus team have those characteristics in spades and this team is an absolute joy to work with, putting client satisfaction at the heart of every decision can’t be a bad philosophy in my book.
Susie StokesGeneral Manager
The majority of my career to date has been working as an HR Professional at Board Level in London. After 4 exciting years living in Singapore with my family, we returned to the UK and I was keen to find a fulfilling yet flexible role. Working here at amamus, I get involved in many areas of the business from operations to legal to HR, and have the pleasure of supporting a fantastic and busy team whilst drinking great coffee at the same time!
Lou WebsterCoffee & Events Partner
In 2014 I discovered the world of specialty coffee during a working holiday in Vancouver, Canada. It was here that I first drank a coffee that tasted of strawberries and blueberries and it blew me away.
Since returning to the UK, I previously headed-up coffee service and quality control for Soho Farmhouse and Soho House Amsterdam before starting my own business, The Coffee Consultancy in 2019.
The coffee industry is a special one. You learn new skills each day, have the best fun doing it, get to create beautiful drinks and moments for yourself and others, and meet like-minded people who care deeply about this product and how it gets from farm to your cup.
Nancy HyneSustainability Consultant
I first got into sustainability when I was working as a structural engineer in Sydney in 2007 and I quickly realised this was the direction I wanted to take my career in. From there, I spent 10 years in the corporate world supporting a range of businesses improve their environmental impact through CSR strategies, reporting and certifications.
A move from London to the New Forest in 2016 was the catalyst for setting up True Horizon to share that knowledge with SMEs. I truly believe that we can do business in a better way and my mission is to support brands like amamus to balance people, planet and profit in a way that is authentic and aligned with their values to create a positive impact.
