With an impressive pedigree spanning over 30 years in the health food industry, co-director Rachel Tweedie brings a wealth of knowledge and expertise to the Thyme Marketing team.
It was on the back of an outstanding career with the wholesaler Nature's Store (Tree of Life), that Rachel ventured into entrepreneurship by establishing her own specialist business, Try Me Now Limited, in 2005.
Fuelled by her unwavering dedication, the venture swiftly flourished, giving rise to the birth of what is now Thyme Marketing.
Innovator Rachel, who pioneered a ground-breaking, in-store demonstration service, stands proudly at the helm of Thyme Marketing with fellow co-director David Walker, having joined forces with him in 2009 to further propel the business forward.
Together they are renowned as trailblazers and an impressive record of success has won this hardworking duo some of the biggest names in the industry as loyal clients.
Outside work, Rachel's passions extend to sports, the great outdoors, and art.
Not only does she enjoy running, working out in the gym, and yoga, she is also an avid fan of cricket, football, and rugby.
Residing on the outskirts of the stunning Peak District, she also takes full advantage, as often as she can, of breathtaking Staffordshire and Cheshire Moorlands for refreshing walks.
And, at home, she has redeveloped her passion for art and pottery, creating stunning pieces of art and bespoke pottery for her many clients.
With an illustrious track record, spanning over three decades in business management, co-director David's alliance with Rachel has helped to propel Thyme Marketing's extraordinary growth and transform it into the thriving and leading entity it is today.
A former Operations Director in the fiercely competitive gift industry, he's brought a wealth of expertise in logistics, online management and development to the team.
His seasoned leadership is hailed as having been instrumental in driving Thyme Marketing's success forward after he joined forces with our innovative co-director Rachel back in 2009.
Together they are an impressive team who continue to turn heads in the industry.
Outside the office, David is a huge sports fan, playing regular football and watching local and international cricket and football.
At home, David loves to cook both indoor and outdoors, and his house parties have become legendary amongst his friends.
Sam is our Account Manager for the South West and boats an extensive knowledge over the breadth of the natural and organic health food sector.
His passion for health and fitness was ignited while he was studying sports science back in his university days.
A profound and unwavering interest in nutrition and the far-reaching impact that it can have upon peak performance was born out of a distinguished, decade-long career in competitive, elite-level rowing.
Sam, who excelled in a previous sales role for an independent pharmacy, brings more than five years of sales experience to the Thyme Marketing team.
Outside the office, Sam is very much a lover of the outdoors.
In his leisure time, he can usually be seen out and about enjoying exhilarating jaunts on his road bike, found happily whiling away several hours nurturing his allotment and its thriving vegetable garden, or cherishing moments with his loved ones.

She brings a wealth of experience in retail management and entrepreneurship to the Thyme Marketing team, having successfully operated her own thriving healthy food venture before joining our ranks.

After studying geography at Liverpool University, Robert embarked on a diverse professional career that included stints in retail management, grocery, and pharmacy sales before joining Thyme's team.
A transformative shift towards natural supplements back in the early 90s paved the way for Robert to forge a successful career in health food sales that spanned the breadth of the UK.
Throughout his time with Thyme Marketing, our Grandfather Robert has fostered enduring partnerships with many individual retailers, alongside successfully leading sales teams and managing major accounts.
When he's not immersed in the world of health food, Robert's focus is on his beloved family, and in particular his grandchildren, who keep him “joyfully occupied” for hours on end!
In his own leisure time, Robert enjoys long walks with his energetic young Labrador, and the duo embrace every opportunity to explore the UK's diverse landscapes.
A science fiction enthusiast, Robert's passions also extend to motorbikes, with him often in eager contemplation of his next adventure.
Jade is definitely Thyme's “Oracle”, and that's exactly what she's affectionately known as by everyone at company HQ.
Forged out of a decade's experience in the realm of administration, Jade has a remarkable eye for detail and meticulous organisation skills - particularly when it comes to creating an impressive spreadsheet!
A steadfast linchpin, Jade is responsible for the seamless operation and management of the wholesaler orders, social media, general marketing, and administration for Thyme Marketing.
When she's not wearing her professional hat, our Jade is somewhat of a globetrotter outside the office, finding great delight in exploring new destinations.
At home, her adventurous spirit does not wane as she revels in embarking on muddy walks alongside her husband and their beloved Dalmatian, Penny-Lane.
