Our team

Meet the team

We’re down-to-earth and straight-talking Northerners! We know that recruitment is all about people, and that’s why we love doing what we do!

To help the Textile, Manufacturing and Supply Chain markets, you need the right recruiters who understand the industry. Find out more about the team at Bowmay…

Jessica Dean-Percy

Managing Director

Jessica is the founder of Bowmay Consulting and started her recruitment career in 2000. With over 20 years’ experience providing recruitment solutions, she has worked with many textile businesses across the UK. As well as running a company, she is mum to Isabelle Beau and Nancy Mae. When she’s not home-schooling, taxiing them round dance schools and various other out of school activities, she enjoys an active social life herself and is quite the social butterfly (if we’re allowed out!) General health and well-being are things that are important to Jess, and she has regular sessions down at the gym with marine fit coaches!

Lucy Bailey


Lucy joined Bowmay late 2017, and has over 15 years recruitment experience across the textile, manufacturing and supply chain markets. Lucy is parent to Cameron and Jessica - and two Jack Russells, Lily and Milo. She's an avid book reader and has a full wall at home dedicated to her passion for books! She enjoys eating out with friends and holidays abroad with the family.

Antonia Forgione



Antonia joined the Bowmay Consulting family in 2021 and is heads up the retail & wholesale sector. Coming from the industry herself she has a wealth of hands-on knowledge and experience in all areas of buying and merchandising. In previous roles she’s been responsible for managing and recruiting buyers, merchandisers, technologists and designers.

On a lighter note, Antonia’s ideal dinner guests would be Adele (for the laughs), Barack Obama (for the admiration), Lee Evans (for even more laughs) and Brad Pitt (for obvious reasons!)

Hannah Potter

Sales Operations & Marketing Manager

Hannah joined the Bowmay team in 2021, her background is medical devices where she carried out Senior Management and Director level roles along with running her own business.

She is our sales and marketing guru and her main focus is to spearhead the growth and development of the Bowmay brand.

Han is our resident prosecco queen! If she doesn’t have a glass of bubbles in her hand she’s out exploring Manchester’s finest landmarks with her dog Pix.
