SUZY SANDERS Founder
Making the brave decision after the birth of her son to leave her corporate job at a global recruitment firm, Suzy embarked on a journey to entrepreneurship. Her business began from a (then) makeshift home office in Northamptonshire in 2016 with the purpose of providing remote administration, practical marketing and flexible PA support to independent business owners, entrepreneurs and sole traders.

PAUL SANDERS Managing Director
When Paul left his secure job to join his wife Suzy’s thriving Virtual Assistant company, he was driven by the strong belief that he could help her build on her successes and achieve her longer-term goals.
They shared the same dreams – to develop a true family-run business, to diversify to become a successful franchise, and to emerge as the UK’s VA company of choice. Through his unwavering support as her business partner, Paul knew that they would be stronger together.
