Simon Wakefield - Managing Director

Simon has over 30 years experience in technical recruitment in the transportation sector. He has worked for multinational companies at Director level and has set up successful automotive design and engineering companies providing staff to OEMs and their 1st and 2nd tier suppliers on a worldwide basis. This experience encompasses all aspects of recruitment at all levels from Board appointments to teams of shop floor workers on both a contract and permanent basis. Simon manages the company but also has specific client responsibilities focussing mainly on high level appointments.

Simon has sailed dinghies for over 40 years and currently sails Squibs at Stone Sailing Club and an RS Elite at the Royal Burnham Yacht Club. He also tries to keep the effects of ageing at bay by sailing Hornets but freely admits that this is becoming increasingly painful.

Laura Sandle - Administrative Director

Laura has over 15 years experience of recruitment in the public and voluntary sectors. She spent four years as Trustee of a national educational charity, and has wide experience within this sector ranging from recruiting individual team members for small organisations through to setting up complete organisations from scratch to service government initiatives. Laura has complete responsibility for public appointments as well as overseeing the administrative functions of the company.

A bad back has put a halt to Laura's sailing activities (although she remains the only team member to have won more than one race at a National Championship) but other responsibilities as a Race Officer and helping out at various Open & National events at Stone Sailing Club, keep her actively involved in all things sailing.

Paul Miall - Sales Manager

Paul is a hands-on industry professional with well in excess of 25 years experience in sales, marketing and project management. During this time, he has worked with clients across a wide range of sectors and company sizes, from large multi nationals to smaller more specialist companies. In addition to this, Paul has extensive experience dealing with all levels of management, designers and tradesmen. His key strengths are being able to recommend solutions and find people that save organisations money and deliver tangible results fast. Paul likes to speak in plain English without confusing industry lingo and technical jargon. Paul's particular focus at Yellow Admiral is on the offshore renewables sector where he can use many of the business contacts he has built up throughout his career.

Outside work, Paul enjoys spending time with his family on and off the water. He has sailed on the East Coast all his life and he currently runs a narrow boat on the Grand Union and potters about the muddy creeks of Essex in his cruiser.
