Chris Roberts – Operations Manager
Responsible for the day-to-day running of Arena, Chris is happiest when up to his elbows in mount cutting machinery, cutting frame mouldings or stretching shirts – to say he is hands-on would be an understatement. But Chris’ experience runs deep, and although he is a Wolves fan (we don’t hold that against him… too much) he is equally happy donning a sharp suit and negotiating five-figure deals in the boardroom. A keen sports fan, and as equally adept behind the camera shooting stadium panoramics, Chris’ passion is driving Arena forward, searching out ever-new products and services to make Arena a name on the lips of photographic sporting product buyers nationwide.

Derek Poulston – MD/Owner
Derek has been in the photo business for over 30 years, starting out on what are now considered old fashioned wet labs. Derek bought OVI in 2010 with his business partner and has nurtured OVI’s change from a traditional lab to a fully automated, digital printing and photo gift, wall art and print framing business for the 21st century. He has worked extremely hard to expand it’s product range, client base and making it a business-to-business brand synonymous with exceptional print quality, value and client service. Arena, by extension, is a huge part of that success, and is driven by identical values.
