A team you can trust

Our Services

Meet the team

Our small but perfectly formed team at Nielsen McAllister is one that you can always rely on to deliver results.

Together, we’re PR, media and marketing experts. We’re journalists, writers and creative thinkers. We work really hard for our clients, we take time to understand how our clients operate and what their objectives are – and we love what we do.

Bob Bushby

Managing Director

With over 30 years’ PR experience, Bob is a true industry expert. Having worked both in-house (for companies such as Grants of St James’s) and for agencies (including Kingsway PR, which became part of Saatchi and Saatchi), he has implemented many PR campaigns for clients ranging from Nestlé to Tarmac.

Since founding Nielsen McAllister in 1990, Bob has established an enviable list of contacts. He has gained particular respect in the packaging and associated media, and is very proud to have retained his first two clients to this day.

Outside the office Bob formerly enjoyed treading the boards in AmDram, but since putting away the greasepaint he has taken up squash and golf – albeit rather badly.

Simon Wildash

Director

Simon is a creative and commercially successful CIM-qualified marketer with over 25 years’ experience within the global packaging, security and communications markets. Simon has helped deliver award-winning MarComms in his previous role at Essentra, as well as positioning thought-leadership across traditional and digital media.

A clear, strategic thinker with a passion for long-term business development, Simon is focused on helping clients deliver business growth using his strategic planning and communications experience.

Beyond the world of Nielsen McAllister, Simon enjoys dragging his reluctant children around the Peak District on long walks as well as socialising with friends and family.

Tom Erskine

Business Account Manager

With a background in business development, marketing and inward investment, Tom brings a wealth of experience to the team.

Having spent 10 years working with the property, retail, leisure and legal sectors, Tom has a passion for building relationships and taking a proactive and creative approach to work, devising new and innovative events, promotions and strategies for growing businesses. Tom has worked on press releases, awards submissions and thought leadership throughout his career. He has a drive to explore how to do things differently and likes to take a strategic view on matters.

Away from work, he enjoys spending time with his wife and son, in addition to his involvement with Bustler Market, an award-winning street food market he founded in 2017. He is also a passionate Derby County fan and can often be found at Pride Park Stadium, hoping to see a win for The Rams.

Connor Watson

Account Executive

A graduate of De Montfort University with a degree in Journalism, Connor has since channelled his impressive range of print and digital media skills into the world of public relations.

Connor’s natural writing style and research talents, honed during his journalism training, have enabled him to move seamlessly between different business sectors and communication platforms. He has previously worked in community radio, edited his student magazine, done freelance video production and has an excellent knowledge of social media.

Outside of work, Connor enjoys travelling and publishes a regular sports blog.

Emma Timson

Office Administrator

With a wide range of experience in administration and customer service roles, Emma brings a wealth of knowledge to the NMPR team.

Working with global transport companies and in the busy warehousing industry, Emma is well-versed at supporting multiple customers while operating in a fast-paced and busy environment.

Emma has a love of animals and has previously volunteered at her local animal shelter. In her spare time, Emma is a keen music lover and enjoys singing at her local church, as well as exploring the outdoors and finding the perfect spot to pitch a tent.
