John Caulcutt

John Caulcutt started Watermark in 1985 with 1 client (Virgin Atlantic), had 2 employees and a turnover of less than £100,000. The company grew steadily and went public in 1996, subsequently becoming the best performing stock quoted on the Alternative Investment Market.


John left Watermark in 2006 and has now teamed up with Alison Wells and together they have some 40 years experience in the procurement and supply of onboard products for airlines. Their new company Plane Talking Products is as the name implies, a plane talking, no nonsense company specialising in the supply of amenities and cabin comfort items to the airline sector. The company is design focused as a low cost overhead structure and can thus offer its products on a best of class/best value basis.


Alison Wells

Alison Wells joined Watermark Group in 1997 and worked in numerous roles including client handling, new business development and operations. In 2000 she took a year-long secondment to Hong Kong to manage the integration of Watermark’s first acquisition of an Asian based product company.

On her return she took over as the company’s General Manager and then Operations Director before moving once more to Hong Kong for a 2 year contract to become the Managing Director of Watermark Asia with responsibility for company wide sourcing, procurement and operations as well as Asia Pacific Sales.

Somehow finding the time to get married and have a baby, Alison returned to the UK and set up Plane Talking Products with her long time colleague John Caulcutt.
