Meet our Team
Our employees are the cornerstone of the company. They are the ones who make the difference on a daily basis. You can meet some of them here:
Everything! Tillotts UK is my baby, when I first joined as general manager in July 2012 there were three employees including me, and sales were less than £250,000. Now we a thriving business with 40 employees and sales above £25 million, it has been and still is an exciting and exhilarating place to work. At Tillotts we work hard and have fun, we enjoy working together as a team and are all proud of our achievements.
“The main thing, is to keep the main thing, THE MAIN THING!” This is a quote from Steven Covey – it reminds me to keep my focus on the main opportunity and not to get diverted, it is too easy to lose focus and get distracted.
I have various role models for business situations and challenges, but one challenge I have and always failed to overcome is that I cannot sing and I love to sing, my singing role model is and has always been Freddie Mercury.
Tillotts open honest and caring culture with a passion to improve the lives of patients with debilitating GI conditions.
Walking my dogs and socialising with friends.
The people I work with are a brilliant mix of creativity, positivity, professionalism and good fun. The company is growing strongly which presents many challenges and opportunities – there is never a dull day.

My 2 boys with their curiosity, energy and love of life.
Working with friends, building something meaningful and making a difference to patients and the NHS.
Long dog walks and discovering new things to cook.
Attitude is a little thing that makes a big difference.
Having worked at Tillotts for six years now, I very much love the “family culture” that runs through Tillotts UK. We are a very caring organisation, and I enjoy working hard, as a company we have lots of fun and as we continue to focus on our crazy goal “To be the preferred partner in GI health with a market leading portfolio and reputation”.
My favourite animal has to be a cat, as my wife tells me this is my favourite animal. In all honesty, I am really a K9 admirer myself first and foremost.
“There is no elevator to success only the stairs!”
As a small but growing company, everyone knows everyone and it really does feel like a big family. Within my role, no day is the same and there are always opportunities to take on new challenges and make a positive impact. I love working in a company which is so passionate about making a difference to patient lives.
‘Only those who will risk going too far can possibly find out how far one can go’ T.S. Eliot.
I love travelling, and exploring the world from new angles, whether scuba diving to the bottom of the ocean or parachuting through the sky. I also enjoy spending time with my nieces and nephews and teaching them all the things an Auntie should!
I love working at Tillotts for many reasons. One is the friendly and motivating working environment in which I work, where everyone’s ideas are listened to and considered, and everyone is made to feel like a valued member of the team. I also love that I can work flexibly, so that alongside having a career I am also able to spend quality time with my daughter.

It would be my beagle Barney, although he can be very naughty at times!
The interest and variability of my job, the people I work with and being proud of our achievements.
Flying and weather control (e.g. Storm from X-Men).
The Terminator / Labyrinth.
The caring and friendly nature of the people I work with. Many companies talk about a family atmosphere, at Tillotts its true.
It is not the critic who counts; not the man who points out how the strong man stumbles, or where the doer of deeds could have done them better. The credit belongs to the man who is actually in the arena, whose face is marred by dust and sweat and blood; who strives valiantly; who errs, who comes short again and again… who at the best knows in the end the triumph of high achievement, and who at the worst, if he fails, at least fails while daring greatly.” ― Teddy Roosevelt.
Sir Nicholas Winton.
The communication and togetherness, having a purpose to make things better. Not just for today but for further down the line and the impact it will have with patients.
“Don’t it always seem to go that you don’t know what you got till it’s gone” – Joni Mitchell.
Sea turtles, they are such fascinating animals that have existed since the time of the dinosaurs.
I love the unique culture at Tillotts, as it is collaborative, supportive, and we all help each other to grow. I started at Tillotts as a Graduate Marketing Associate in 2018 and Tillotts have helped me develop so much over the past few years. I am now a Brand Manager, which is a perfect mix of science and creativity.
“Gratitude is a powerful catalyst for happiness. It’s the spark that lights a fire of joy in your soul.” Amy Collette.
Birds, because I find bird song so peaceful and I love how free birds are as they fly through the sky.
I’ve been at Tillotts just over 12 months and what drew me to the company was the people. You get an immediate sense of family, and that everyone is in it together. I am lucky to have a great team of highly talented individuals, and I’m sure I will be sharing many more “loves” in no time.
My biggest passion is for DIY and powertools. I am renovating a house in France and it has become a labour of love. To help with my latest phase, I have just gained BTEC’s in plastering and plumbing!
It may sound cheesy, but my dad is my greatest role model. He can turn his hand to pretty much anything and taught me to do the same. He inspired my love of renovation and turning other peoples rubbish into something beautiful.
There is a real family feel at Tillotts and we enjoy spending time together. As individuals, we all have unique talents and things we are good at, both are recognised and celebrated. Most importantly, what we do makes a real difference for patients and that is always at the heart of everything we do.
“To handle yourself use your head. To handle others, use your heart.”
– Eleanor Roosevelt
The ability to fly – I wouldn’t need a car and could fly everywhere. Not having to pay for fuel, trains or flights would be fantastic and would also be environmentally friendly, but best of all it would get me to Wales much faster to see my lovely granddaughter.
I love the motivation and passion everyone within the company has for making a difference in patients’ lives. It embodies the heart of what we do and why we do it.
I enjoy exercising in the gym, I still find it incredible how you can condition your mind and body to achieve anything if you work for it
My favourite animal is a dog, they are so loyal and loving.
Personally, for me it’s the people that work here, people make a company what it is and the team here are passionate about what they do and they care about doing the right thing by people. Professionally, working in a company that isn’t standing still and strives for continuous growth and innovation is both rewarding and stimulating.
A quote that really resonates with me is ‘When people go to work, they shouldn’t have to leave their hearts at home’.
Spend time with family and friends
