Chief Financial Officer

Executive Sales

John has worked in the City for over 30 years, initially in financial PR for Binns Cornwall before moving into financial print for RR Donnelly in the early 1990s. After completing an MBA at Oxford Brooks University, John co-founded Millnet Financial in 1996 when he became Vice Chairman.

Millnet grew steadily and diversified away from its original financial print focus, giving John experience in litigation support work and e-disclosure/e-discovery alongside his print expertise.

In January 2016 Millnet was acquired by Advanced Discovery, a US-based global e-discovery business, and in June 2017 John negotiated the transfer of the financial print division to Perivan. John continues to work with his long-standing client base and in 2018 used his connection with leading virtual data room provider EthosData to bring this service to Perivan’s clients in a partnership agreement. John has recently invested in Perivan when he became one of its largest shareholders.

Phil Austen

Sales Director, Annual Reports

Learn More

Phil started his career in financial printing 35 years ago at St. Ives where he developed a passion for annual reports.

He progressed to a number of senior positions, including a 13- year spell as sales director at Pillans and Wilson Greenaway, before forming Corporate Ink, a successful annual report printing consultancy business, which he owner-managed for 12 years prior to its acquisition by Perivan in March 2017.

Phil has advised and worked with around 25% of the FTSE top 250 quoted companies, as well as a large portfolio of Investment Trusts and open- and closed-ended fund clients. His hands-on approach, attention to detail and the product knowledge he has amassed during his career make him an unparalleled leader in his field.

John started his financial printing career over 25 years ago at Libra City Corporate printing. He’s a founder member of Perivan Financial Print, having joined at its inception. He has been instrumental in building Perivan into the UK’s leading financial printer and invested in the MBO in 2003 when he became one of the largest shareholders of the company.

A corporate finance and corporate access specialist, John has managed the full printed documentation for more IPOs, merger and acquisition and fundraising transactions over the last 20 years than any in his peer group. This has also led him to accumulate a substantial portfolio of quoted company annual report clients.

He is a former member of the AIM Awards voting panel.

Based in Edinburgh, Graham has many years’ experience helping company secretaries to communicate effectively both externally with shareholders and internally with their boards. He started his financial printing career at Williams Lea in 1980 and then, ten years later, was part of the management buy-in team at Pillans & Wilson, helping turn the Edinburgh-based company into one of the UK’s largest financial printers prior to its 3i-backed acquisition. 

He joined Perivan in 2007, when he invested in the company. Today, Graham continues to help large organisations, particularly in the asset management arena, with their open- and closed-ended fund reporting requirements.

As Head of Sales at Perivan Technology, he and his team help companies to be more efficient in other areas of document compilation, manipulation and distribution via our VirtualBoardroom, DotApprove, RightSlide and DocGen solutions.
