Andy Napthine

A self-confessed gadget geek, Andy is the strategist in the group and enjoys getting to grips with the all-important detail to make the most of every campaign.  His ability to spot and create opportunities has lead to significant coverage, and his easy-going nature backed up with vast industry knowledge enables him to forge strong relationships with both the media and within the consumer electronics industry.

With nearly two decades experience working for two of the UK’s most respected audiovisual brands (Denon and Bowers & Wilkins), Andy’s experience crosses sales, marketing and PR.  It was during his time at B&W that he developed his PR skills, running extensive campaigns both in the UK and internationally that significantly lifted the brand’s profile.  This invaluable experience gave Andy the skills to start his own PR business, which lead to him to form Napthine Porter with Alan a year later.

Alan Porter

About_Us_Image_AP1Alan is driven by a passion for technology and a natural talent to grasp where and how products can fit into a market place.  His combination of energy and tenacity often leads to extraordinary coverage and his ability to work with the media to create compelling features is exceptional.

Alan started his career in a Sussex seaside town working in an AV store as a Saturday boy. Soon he traded the relative calm of Worthing for the hustle and bustle of Tottenham Court Road in London’s West End where he polished his sales and negotiation skills.

Alan has since worked for some of the most prestigious brands in the consumer electronics industry. TEAC (Area Sales Manager), REL Acoustics (International Sales and Marketing Manager), Chord Electronics (International Sales and Marketing Manager) and DALI Loudspeakers (UK Market Manager) have all benefited from Alan’s experience and enabled him to hone his PR skills prior to setting up Napthine Porter.
