James is also a keen sportsman and enjoys a spot of fishing. He has yet to land ‘The Catch of the Season.’
Chloe Yorke - Event Consultant
Having worked previously at Stanwell House Hotel and Careys Manor Hotel, Chloe joined the team in April 2015.
Her previous experience in the events industry means that she has hit the ground running in the TBCo team and will often be your first point of contact on the phone. (You will know this from her broad Yorkshire accent!).
Outside of work, Chloe likes to keep fit by going to the gym which also allows her to maintain her passion for baking! You will never catch her on one of our RIBs though as she hates being on the water!

A member of the team for seven years, he loves his work and always shows tremendous enthusiasm.
James (Jim) Myatt - Event Manager

When not working, you will find him out on the water, wakeboarding or fishing and in the winter months he'll be 'carving the pow' on his snowboard in the Alps.

Stuart Hedges - Director
Likes: Diving for Scallops, Sauvignon Blanc
Dislikes: People being late
Favourite event: Rib Treasure Hunt
Stuart is one of our 2 directors. An original founder of our sister company Solent Rib Charter, Stuart's speciality lies with our fleet of RIBs. He oversees all operational tasks and can turn his hand to pretty much anything.
As a commercially endorsed Powerboat Yachtmaster, you will often find Stuart out on the water on one of our RIBs or on our motorboat, 'Lysander'. When not on the water, he will probably be in it, diving for Scallops in a secret location that only a handful of people know about!
Richard Ward - Director
Likes: Red Trousers, Evenings at the RLymYC
Dislikes: Junk food in the office
Favourite event: F1 Challenge
Richard is the other one of our 2 directors. An original founder of our sister company Solent Rib Charter, Richard's speciality lies with the overall management of the company. He has an impeccable attention to detail that can often veer into OCD (as he will often admit) but this results in a tightly run ship from the top down.
When not in the office, Richard enjoys nothing more than spending time on our motorboat 'Lysander' and visiting family across the pond in Canada.
