The people behind our services

Our team have collectively gained decades of experience in procurement and are passionate about helping you get excellent products and services for the best possible price.

Meet the friendly faces you’ll work with on your Collective journey!

Mike Jehan – Managing Director

Mike started Collective Purchasing back in 1995 and has moulded it into the successful, trustworthy and reliable business it is today.

Mike is still heavily involved in the company and loves to visit customers and converse with owners and directors of businesses, ensuring we understand their needs and requirements to meet all expectations.

Mike likes to spend any spare time relaxing, visiting new countries, long coastal walks, running, bike riding and even the occasional swim in the Solent!

A message from our director:

‘I continue to be proud that even with today’s ever-increasing costs, our procurement and advisory services strive to find ways of benefiting the customer.’

Laura Jehan -Director

Laura has been a crucial part of Collective Purchasing since starting part-time work within the company while studying photography at college. Fast forward to being made a director in May 2022, Laura’s role is all-encompassing. Her vast knowledge of every aspect of the business makes her our human encyclopaedia within the office.

Laura loves the huge variety of her everyday work life, and seeing positive changes we have introduced for customers taking effect is a particular highlight… as well as tasty chef days!

Laura also loves spending her spare time with her two beautiful daughters. If they are not on an outdoor adventure, she’ll be inside reading a good book, organising an event for the PTA or tending to her recently rescued ex-battery chickens.

Beth Jehan – Business Development Manager

Beth has been introducing Collective Purchasing to new members for the past eight years, helping them reduce costs and save money in all areas of supply, demonstrating how invaluable our services are.

She loves providing savings above and beyond expectations, regularly visiting customers, and finding new ways to help make their working lives easier!

In Beth’s spare time she loves making wonderful memories with her family and taking her little boy on days out to the zoo. She also will never turn down the opportunity of a spa day!

Emma Weeks – Finance Administrator

Emma has been a valued member of the Collective Purchasing team since joining us in January 2018!

She is the go-to lady for everything finance-related, as well as all invoicing and statistical queries. Whilst with Collective, Emma has further developed her skills by achieving further qualifications in accounting! Emma loves to find new excel tricks and hacks to use regularly.

She has a house full of beautiful furry friends and a wonderful family with whom she loves spending as much of her spare time as possible.

Yasmin King – Customer Service Advisor

Although Yasmin only joined the team as our Customer Service Advisor just over a year ago, it’s like she has never been anywhere else. She is a very chatty and bubbly character and loves nothing more than catching up with our lovely customers with regular phone calls.

Yasmin’s main role is handling any problems that arise for our members and speaking with suppliers to ensure any issues are resolved as quickly as possible.

In her spare time Yasmin loves nothing more than socialising with family and friends and her gorgeous cat-Looney.

Matthew Jehan – Business Development Executive

Matthew has been working for Collective Purchasing for three years. Amongst many other jobs he enjoys bringing on new business and offering competitive prices in all areas of supply, including dairy, food, housekeeping and medical. He is also our ‘go-to guy’ for all furniture and equipment enquiries – no matter how obscure!

Matthew really enjoys the relationships he’s developed within the team in the office, especially the “cracking banter” he shares with friends & co-workers daily.

In his spare time, Matt loves playing video games with friends, reading, and going to events like Comic-Con!
