Neil Clark has been in the coffee industry for the past 14 years now. Having worked as a chef in Hotels in London, Harrods, Knightsbridge and Scotland he decided a change was in order. His next career moved saw him leap him into a sales manager role with Stella Artois, where he worked for a number of years. After redundancy and a short spell at home with his new-born son he fell into the world of coffee. Working for 5 years with the Scottish roaster Matthew Algie, so this is where his love for the little beans began. He loved the range of possibilities this little bean can deliver. Neil managed a team of 7 sales people. Dealt with some prestigious customers, but all the time still delivering excellent customer service.
After working at the coal face of the industry Neil then joined Marco Beverage Systems. Throughout his time with them he gained experience of manufacturing and equipment supplies to the sector. He worked for Marco for many years before setting up Hessian Coffee Bishops Stortford with his business partner in 2014.
Neil says, “Hessian was formed to deliver all the services, products, training & education required in the coffee industry. We wanted to offer the same honesty and reliability that I have offered previously to my customers. It’s all well and good having coffee but you need to have the support and relationships with your supplies for everyone to succeed”.
Neil has also been involved with the BSA (Beverage Standard Association) and the SCAE (Speciality Coffee Association of Europe). He also has been part of driving standards into the industry, delivering educational courses and judging at the UK Barista championships
Neil is married, has 3 boys, is a qualified rugby coach. He gives a lot of time to the development of mini’s and youth players in the sport. Just when you thought Neil couldn’t offer any more he was also voted Mr Sussex Beach in 1978!
The next phase of Niall’s career saw the creation of a leading software agency based in Brighton that was employing nearly 40 staff. Within 5 years Niall and his brother were working with some prestigious government agencies and top 100 FTSE companies. Sigmer fell into the arena of staff Incentives working with marketing departments running some of the most advanced programs within the UK.
During this time Niall married and now has 4 boys and has developed a passion for youth rugby coaching at his local club Bishops Stortford RFC.
After 14 years working across a number of disciplines Niall decided it was time to have a change from working away from home and create a new challenge to tackle. As most new opportunities arise he got chatting to a friend and fellow rugby fan Neil Clark who was also looking for a change they both decided they would take the plunge and start their own coffee Bishops Stortford company. Shortly after this decision a wholesale business in Saffron Walden came up for sale and so the story begins…
Joining the Hessian family in 2016 Louise manages customer services and the out bound calls relating to coffee Bishops Stortford and throughout the UK.
Louise is a bit of a part timer, as multitasks the coffee day job with the kids, but is integral to the smooth running of the business. Louise also finds the time to run the odd half marathon and finds nothing more relaxing than surfing the internet for bargain’s and holidays.
We are always looking at new technology and products that embrace the hot beverage industry in a positive way.
