Meet the Environmental Team

Dr Matthew Smith - Business Development Manager Environmental Systems

Matt was born in Yorkshire, but moved down to Leicestershire as a child which explains his lack of a true Yorkshire accent.  After developing an early interest in Science, Matt achieved a first class degree in Physics and went on to complete a PhD in Physical Chemistry from the University of Durham.  Matt joined Spooner’s Environmental Team in 2012 after several years working in Business Development and Account Management roles.

Spooner’s environmental systems are incredibly well built and ultra-reliable, unlike the vintage British sports car that Matt spends his weekends fixing up!

Lois Scott - Product Manager Environmental Systems

After graduating with a degree in Materials Science and Metallurgy, followed by a post graduate course in Manufacturing and Management, Lois initially started work at Spooner as Sales Manager in the Metals Industry.  When Spooner Industries expanded its range to include environmental products, Lois was appointed Product Manager for this market and works closely with our licensors to deliver projects across Europe.

While not at work or chasing after her two children, Lois enjoys keeping fit by running and cycling.

Jan Paulke - Sales Engineer

Being born in Moldova and growing up in Germany, Jan acquired not only his language abilities but also his sense for order and organisation. He graduated with a Master of Science degree at the Technical University of Dresden in Mechanical Engineering.
