Meet The Team!

The Big Boss is Hugo Spiegl (Managing Director)

He is the son of the founder of the original company, Peter Spiegl.  Hugo is Stamford born and bred and joined Peter Spiegl & Company in 1990.  He really has become the ‘all seeing eye’ of Spiegl Press. Hugo has great knowledge of both the processes and our vast array of machinery as well as keeping his finger on the pulse of the finances.

Hugo loves to teach himself something new – often that something is work related, like making a website, or developing new products. His downtime is spent going to watch Leicester City Football Club with his eldest son, sailing his small dinghy on Rutland water, reading and walking his Greyhound and Jack Russell in the beautiful Rutland countryside with his wife Jo.

The Not Quite So Big Boss is Jo Spiegl (Director)

Jo is Hugo’s long suffering other half! Jo joined Spiegl Press in 2006. She looks after the staffing side of the business and the marketing/PR. Jo’s love is the wedding stationery and fine print side of the business  –  she can regularly be found at local Wedding Shows showing off the beautiful stationery.

Jo’s spare time is spent cooking for her two teenage sons (and Hugo), reading and walking the 2 dogs with Hugo. Her favourite night out is sitting round a table, sharing good food and wine with a couple of good friends.
