Who's who at Helen Exley®


Helen likes to select all her staff personally, what is she looking for? A great smile, and kindness. Of course, high skills and intelligence are vital - but we only settle on these when people convince us they really can be part of the team.


Several people on our team have worked with us for more than ten years, some even for more than twenty. We are a strong team of people dedicated to the values of the company, and driven by these values. 

Helen Exley is the C.E.O and Editor-in-Chief.

She works closely with our Head of Design on every book, gift and stationery item, and each is created with great care and attention. Helen has collected a vast body of over half a million beautiful, thoughtful, witty or wise quotations throughout her life, and each time she creates a new book she reads the relevant subject again and only the best make it into the final publication. Helen has edited and published 2000 titles since the Company began almost 40 years ago.
