Meet the Team
Antony Wagman - Chairman
54 going on 23 our fearless leader is a 25+ year veteran of the global skincare and personal care industry . A keen Manchester City Fan & a Rocky Horror Show fanatic – some may say the two have been interlinked over the years. Antony has been a resident of Manchester his whole life and is Chairman of the Red Sea Pedestrians Charity – a committee that have raised close on £2 million for good causes in the North West of England over the last 10 years . He has been married to his long suffering wife Nadine for close on 30 years , has two of their children in the business ( see Jamie Wagman & Holly Wagman ) with a third , Bobby , just about to wreak havoc at Uni . With three dogs of various sizes ( from mini to ultra maxi plus) he loves nothing more than letting them run loose on the beautiful North Wales coastline .
Richard Jorden - Chief Operating Officer
A buyer by trade, I have worked in the personal care industry since 1992. Since joining the Quest team in 2018, I have headed up the operational side of the business including warehousing, trucks and, well… anything operational! Being a big advocate of “Made in the UK” I also have a soft spot for manufacturing factories!! By the way, I don’t look like Donald Trump in real life… in fact Jeff Goldblum once told me I looked like Daniel Craig 🙂
Jamie Wagman - Strategic Partner Manager
Growing up with samples of cotton buds and skincare perfectly prepared me for life at Quest. Starting in telesales in 2016, now managing operations with our China team and global supply partners whilst pushing for new and exciting distribution opportunities.
Fun facts: I can speak 4 languages conversationally and can handle the hottest curries on the planet…challenge me if you dare! Manchester is blue!
Jasmine Burton - Head of UK Sales
Queen curtain twitcher of Quest and big foodie!
6 Years so far (with a tad break in between)
Fun Fact: I travelled the East Coast of Australia for 3 months. Swam with sharks, climbed the Sydney Bridge and came back 2 stone heavier – not sure which is most impressive
Holly Wagman - Head of New Product Development
Skincare-obsessed science geek with a passion for beauty & personal care !I spend my days testing fun formulas and textures …. the dream job! You’ll catch me behind my laptop wearing a face mask & listening to Skincare Gurus on YouTube (all of course whilst researching upcoming ingredients for our new launches) !
Fun Fact: I have a skincare blog (@Skin_ByHolly) & have developed a unique skill of ordering EVERYTHING in miniature sizing online 😊
Sue Elks - Director of Innovation & Marketing
There are no boundaries to the creativity in the beauty industry and that’s why I still love it after more years then I care to mention!
A self-confessed trend junkie, whether its ‘sock curls’ on TikTok or #Dolphinskin on Instagram, inspiration comes from everywhere and everyone. Curiosity drives our incredible team to develop products that are trend-led, have that smile factor and affordable – what more could you want?
Fun fact : Bit of a petrol head, from Scalextric slot car racing (I was only 7) to karting, track days and off road #girl loves #speed

Queen snacker and cheese obsessed loyal Questicle.
5 and a half years strong, worked almost all roles and still working my way up to be the MD of Quest.

Fiona Young - Customer Services
20 years and counting as a Quest original team member, from Stock control to Customer services you will have probably spoken to me!

Emma Jones - Customer Services & Marketing Executive
Starting out at Quest 4 years ago as a Junior Office Admin I have moved through roles, I now get paid to be on social media in work all day and make Tiktok’s (cool i know, but i do have to do some work).
Fun fact: In 2016 I completed the Manchester Marathon raising £600 for the Christie’s Cancer Charity (never again) and I am obsessed with makeup i may as well have shares in Mac.
