Matt Stilwell

Bid Services Manager

As a Bid Manager by trade, I feel your pain! I understand the rigours of bidding and am here to help make the road a little less treacherous. I ensure that the communication strategy created by our design team, meets your client’s exacting requirements and exceeds your expectations.

Becky Filtness

Project Manager

I spend all day doing what I love – talking! As a trained linguist and the key liaison between our teams and our clients, my focus is on clear communication and service with a smile. “C’est un plaisir, pas un devoir.�?

Laurence Filtness

Digital Producer

My role at Blue Edge is, in my opinion, the best. I take all the awesome designs cooked up by our team and build something cool, exciting and interactive. Plus, I get to play with a lot of hi-tech toys.

Amardeep Shina

Office Manager

I like to think that I keep the mundane parts of the business (which I love) ticking over with little fuss or bother. Whatever you need, from a toner cartridge to an invoice paid on time, I'm the one to ask!

George Hadley

Senior Designer (Associate)

From first thoughts and sketches, crafting and tweaking on screen, to the tactile qualities of paper and ink. I’m hands on at every stage of our creations.

Simon Kirkham

Copywriter (Associate)

Where there are winning bids, there are messages that cut through the clutter to engage the audience. You wont win if your words don’t stand out, convince and inspire.

Lindsey Parkin

Workshop Facilitator (Associate)

With pressure to win and precious little time to wander around getting to know one another, it’s critical to make every minute count. I help your team move more efficiently towards the common goal, the win.

Paul Ledger

Developer (Associate)

At heart I'm a geek, always have been, always will be. After 28 years in IT, I bring extensive knowledge to Blue Edge. I turn their fantastic ideas and visuals into smooth, functional and informative apps.

Justin Ross

Artworker (Associate)

Our printed submissions can be thousands of pages long. I’m the lucky guy who ensures consistent and clean formatting, right down to your very last line. Luckily, I’m an attention-to-detail addict.

Mark Sheerin

Copywriter (Associate)

I’m an experienced copywriter. I’m a trained journalist. And when the two roles come together, I weave the words and spin the stories that make Blue Edge bid campaigns hard to resist.

Pat Thomas

Bid Lead (Associate)

I work with you to ensure that your client's requirements are at the centre of your bid. I’ll show you how to support their business drivers and objectives as well as the specific requirements of the work you want to win.

Paul Sharville

Bid Lead (Associate)

Extracting the best bid from a large team of authors requires a varied mix of abilities. My journalistic background provides the skills to work with both people and stories. I can get under the surface of your submission and make a real impact.

James Milner

Document Co-Ordinator (Associate)

I make your work flow. Your winning bid submission should be the one you spent most of your time writing, not fixing, or finding. When things get complex, people turn to me to deliver the seamless bid they know they need.
