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.

Wendy Roberts

Senior Consultant

With over 30 years’ working as a journalist, Wendy has been trusted by thousands of people to share their exclusive stories in local and regional press.

She’s a former magazine editor and features writer and watched her heart-warming and unique stories fill pages in the UK tabloids.

Wendy’s words travelled the world! Once, she spotted her by-line in the New York Times!

In recent years, she has moved into the dynamic world of PR and has been supporting local businesses to share their news, build reputation and gain greater profile. Again, she has loved bringing people together to celebrate their successes.

Outside of work, family means everything to Wendy. She’s married to Simon and they have two teenage sons, Joe and Ted, and a little dog called Otty.

Jack Readman

Senior Account Executive

Jack graduated from the University of Lincoln with a degree in Public Relations and brings his knowledge and experience from this to the Nielsen McAllister team.

With a speciality in creating engaging copy and an adaptability in writing styles, Jack prides himself on creating quality content across a diverse range of applications; from social media to opinion leadership. Establishing and nurturing productive media relationships is also close to his heart and helps to deliver article and feature opportunities to our clients.

In his downtime Jack enjoys practising archery (badly), hikes in the Peak District and keeping up with his international friends.

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.

Richard Pettinger

Account Manager

If Richard has a speciality in the world of commerce, it’s that he doesn’t have a speciality….

Decades of account management experience within the ‘full service’ marketing agency sector has exposed him to pretty much every facet of client support, and he really cannot decide on his favourite.

So, while he tries to make his mind up, you’ll find him supporting our clients in whatever way they need to drive their business forward – copywriting, analysis, blogging, research, tea making…

Downtime activities revolve around reading, writing, armchair sport, fighting the urge to get another dog too soon, pretending to be able to play golf, and avoiding DIY in all its pernicious forms…

Molly Norman

Account Executive

Joining Nielsen McAllister as a Digital Marketing apprentice, Molly has a keen interest in developing her knowledge of PR and marketing and using her studies to bring a fresh perspective to the team.

With a love of the written word, she has already used her skills to set up her own blog and website to hone her writing and creative abilities.

Alongside this, Molly enjoys painting, reading, and taking her three dogs on adventures around her hometown. She also loves to bake – but has told us she wouldn’t recommend trying anything she makes.

We will let you know if she is ever ready for Bake Off!

Rhiannon Hopper

Account Executive

Graduating from the University of Warwick with a degree in English Literature and Film Studies, Rhiannon applies her creative mindset and love of writing to the world of PR and the Nielsen McAllister team.

With an interest in copywriting and social media marketing, Rhiannon supports clients to generate positive publicity and enhance their reputations.

When not knee deep in clients’ PR and social media, Rhiannon can be found shamelessly binge-watching crime dramas, sipping on a cocktail with friends or organising her next trip abroad. Any recommended travel destinations, please send her way!
