Peter Savage
Peter Savage CEO

Peter

As well as being one of the founders of Azule, I am an out-of-the-box thinker, always trying something new. I’m not great at detail but I do love to come up with a cunning plan and, if I think it has potential, I will strive to make it happen. Among my favourite phrases are “why not?” and “don’t always follows the rules”. I am probably at my happiest when I am eventually proved right, (with help from my team of course).

My greatest moment: The birth of my kids, without a doubt. It was the start of something really special.

My favourite TV Show: I have never had a ‘must watch’ show but I will watch any sport. My favourite is the final day of the Open golf. It was something that I was brought up with, a bit like one of my other loves, Test cricket.

If I could live in a movie I would choose: The Long Good Friday. I love gangster movies - as long as I am on the winning side.

Best music gig been to: The Jam 1978/9.

Currently on top of my bucket list: Luckily my bucket is fairly full.

My favourite flavour of jelly: I hate jelly with a passion but at a push may be seen to be making the odd vodka jelly.
Gavin Scott
Gavin Scott MANAGING DIRECTOR

Gavin

Before founding Azule with Peter, I worked for, um, Peter. In total I have been working in broadcast, sound and lighting finance since 1998. After all this time I like to think I have lots of experience but I’m always learning about the technology. My main expertise is in sound and lighting having financed many major rental companies including plenty that have staged some of Europe’s largest tours and festivals. Outside of work I am married with two young boys who keep me busy on the weekends, generally ferrying them around to sports clubs and activities. When I have some free time I become a MAML (Middle Aged Man In Lycra) and get out on my road bike for anything between 40 and 60 miles of cycling. My other passions include golf and football (sorry, I’m a Chelsea fan).

My greatest moment: Becoming a dad.

My favourite TV Show: Top Gear.

If I could live in a movie I would choose: The Hangover.

Best music gig been to: U2 at Twickenham Stadium.

Currently on top of my bucket list: Parachute Jump from a plane.

My favourite flavour of jelly: Strawberry.
Rebecca Price
Rebecca Price SALES DIRECTOR

Rebecca

Demure, introverted and a pacifist: these are just some of the things that Rebecca is not. If it weren’t for the lure of the bright lights of Datchet I would probably be in court cross-examining criminals. As it stands I interrogate employees and clients instead. I am a total foodie and traveller. I love cooking and eating out, especially in foreign climes. To counter this I do circuit training and can often be found hobbling around the office after over doing it at the gym.

My greatest moment: Having the guts/stupidity to quit my job in the middle of a banking crisis and travel to Asia and Africa.

My favourite TV Show: ThunderCats. Cheetara is my idol.

If I could live in a movie I would choose: The Italian Job. Any excuse to be in Italy.

Best music gig been to: Rudimental at Brixton Academy. Bloomin’ awesome!

Currently on top of my bucket list: A trip to the Galapagos Islands.

My favourite flavour of jelly: Champagne.
Joerg
Jörg Pieper DIRECTOR
GERMAN OFFICE

Jörg

I run the German operation of Azule. With over 20 years experience in the broadcast and pro audio industry I can talk a customer’s language which is one of the key factors in Azule being recognised as the finance experts in the media industry.

My greatest moment: My wedding.

My favourite TV Show: Sing My Song.

If I could live in a movie I would choose: The role of Danny in Brassed Off.

Best music gig been to: Jason Mraz.

Currently on top of my bucket list: Two tickets to see the Berlin Philharmonic Orchestra.

My favourite flavour of jelly: Haribo.
Anushka
Anushka Carter FINANCE CONTROLLER

Anushka (currently on maternity)

I like numbers and colours and I find random things interesting. Having worked in a number of entrepreneurial SMEs I really enjoy the spirit of Azule so I have found myself quite at home here.

My greatest moment: It’s too hard to decide. Probably something travel related.

My favourite TV Show: I never get a chance to use the remote control. The TV is always showing sport.

If I could live in a movie I would choose: Lord of the Rings. I’d have my own hobbit hole.

Best music gig been to: Radiohead at Glastonbury.

Currently on top of my bucket list: I don’t know if it’s at the top, but I had it in my head that I wanted to have visited at least 100 countries. 15 more to go.

My favourite flavour of jelly: Pass on the jelly, bring on the pie!
James Werts
James Werts CREDIT UNDERWRITER & ANALYST

James

I am responsible for assessing, analysing and underwriting every finance and credit requirement that Azule receives. It is fair to say that I enjoy reading financial reports and management accounts more than it is normal. I am highly in demand around the office as everyone wants to underwrite their deal asap. Despite this pressure I cope well and it all works like clockwork. Honest.

My greatest moment: Is yet to come.

My favourite TV Show: Gardeners’ World, anything with David Attenborough in it or Jackass.

If I could live in a movie I would choose: Avengers’ Assemble, Spinal Tap, the occasional trip to Castaway.

Best music gig been to: Stone Roses, Earls Court, late 1995.

Currently on top of my bucket list: Is another bucket.

My favourite flavour of jelly: One you can wrestle in.
Anna
Anna Kelmishkeyt MARKETING MANAGER

Anna

Also known as Russky, I like learning new things and exploring the world. That’s why when, at my job interview, Peter mentioned that everyday is a school day I was sold.

My greatest moment: Ask me when I am 100 :)

My favourite TV Show: I prefer to enjoy the life myself, rather than watch what others do but, if I have to choose one, I would probably opt for House MD.

If I could live in a movie I would choose: Anything adventurous. An Indiana Jones film or Pirates of the Caribbean would float my boat.

Best music gig been to: Anything where I have a sore throat the next day from singing along.

Currently on top of my bucket list: Traveling, learning and trying new things.

My favourite flavour of jelly: Haribo eggs. Sadly, Haribo eggs-only packs exist only in Germany!

Jack Camilatto MARKETING & SALES EXECUTIVE

My greatest moment: Would have to be graduating and being the first in the family to do so.

My favourite TV Show: Sons of Anarchy, Sopranos, Breaking Bad, Narcos and of course the occasional episode of Friends!

My favourite TV Show: Most TV dramas but particularly Luther, Scandal and Holby City.

If I could live in a movie I would choose: Back To The Future, so that I could time travel in a DeLorean!

Best music gig been to: I’ve never been to a gig I wanted to go to. I took my younger sister to JLS a few years ago and went to Wireless last year.

Miranda Scott
Miranda Scott Sales Support

Miranda (currently on maternity)

Before joining Azule, I worked for Unatrac handling the logistics involved in shipping of large caterpillar machinery from Europe to various African territories. I then took some time out to raise two boys before joining Azule. With two boys and working my life is pretty busy. Outside of work my interests involve running to keep fit and I am partial to a few glasses of Prosecco. As the only girl in the house I am somewhat outnumbered when it comes to sporting interests so generally the TV has sport on most of the time such as Football or Golf so I have a partial interest in football.

My greatest moment: Becoming a mum to two wonderful children.

My favourite TV Show: 24

If I could live in a movie I would choose: Dirty Dancing

Best music gig been to: U2 at Twickenham Stadium

Currently on top of my bucket list: Have a good sleep.

James

The youngest and the newest addition to the fantastic team at Azule. Sales by day, sales by night. Having worked at Close Asset Finance and now with Azule, it is clear asset finance is my passion.  Being the only northerner (scouser)  in the office  I am prone to the odd joke. Outside the office I am a keen sportsman and most noticeably following/playing football and tennis.
