Wotmalike Ltd was originally thought up in November 2009 under the business name GeordieMugs - cards were printed on a printer from Argos with Geordie phrases. In October 2010 the first batch of mugs went off to be made and the rest is history. Big changes happened January 2014 when Nick Burrows joined his wife Jo to run the business and drive it forward.
Jo was brought up in Byker Newcastle where her dolls were the best dressed around as from an early age she had huge creative flair. She trained as a Textile Designer and went on to work for several big high street stores as a designer before working through design agents to sell her work worldwide. Jo has always been very proud of her North East heritage and has used the design name BYKERLASS for many years.
Nick comes from a commercial and customer service background having worked at a senior level for an international cruise company until July 2013. Nick brings business sense, focus, IT skills and fabulous customer service experience to the business. He is meticulously organised and extremely capable and approachable. The combined skills of Jo & Nick are a winning combination.
