Philip Meldrum

After working in the Print industry, developing computer systems and integrating word processors with computer typesetting, Philip setup Alpha Index to help companies exploit the Desk Top Publishing revolution. Philip is a keen windsurfer, and organised a windsurfing event at the DPA Conference for a number of years when it was in his home town of Brighton. Philip qualified as a Geologist, with an MSc from Imperial College.

Rhydian Coombs

After finishing a Chemistry and Computing degree at Brighton University I ended up (as all Brighton graduates do at some point!) working for AMEX using some of my computing skills. I then had the chance to join Alpha Index where I have been ever since. I am a keen mountain biker and an occasional runner. I love to play poker and am an avid rugby fan.

Managing Director  / Wilmington Business Intelligence 

I’m very happy to recommend Philip and his team at Alpha Index who have been working with Wilmington for many years on a wide range of database and technology projects within our publishing businesses. From the outset, I have always found Alpha Index to be honest, thorough and dedicated to delivering solutions that work. Of course they have a broad understanding and experience of the publishing industry, but more importantly they take the time to understand our business needs, to challenge our thinking where appropriate and ultimately to ensure that the end result delivered works for us. This “partnership” mentality has proved invaluable over the years and helped us to deliver our commercial objectives.
