Leadership team

Knowing who you’re working with matters, so we’re delighted to introduce our team.

Roles and responsibilities

As the founder and CEO of Albion Languages, Alistair has lived and breathed every second of the company’s upward development over the last 20+ years. He is actively involved in strategic matters, solution design, business development and looking after the company’s loyal clientele.

About Alistair

Away from the world of translation, Alistair mostly spends his free time in family fun, at concerts and plays, exploring around Europe and out and about on two wheels.

Roles and responsibilities

Present in the company from day one, as CEO/CFO, Peter is responsible for keeping finances ship shape at Albion Languages. He looks after bids and quotations, keeping one eye on vendor finances and the other on sales and revenue. He’s also involved in business development and HR.

Languages

  • English
  • French
  • Hungarian

Education

Having entered the job market earlier than planned, Peter picked up his ‘higher education’ on the job. Less fond of diplomas or degrees, university isn’t his thing. He has accumulated enough snippets of knowledge though over the past 20+ years to give him a steady hand when needed.

About Peter

Alongside his interest in the translation business, Peter runs a small publishing house focused on French literature and artists books. Reading, films and the arts take up the majority of his free time, while he’s also open to exploring and understanding social tendencies old and new with an interest in human rights.

About Bianka

She is in a very fortunate position in that she can practice her hobbies and interests in her daily work! She has always loved languages, linguistics and grammar in general. As a linguist, she enjoys analysing texts and words in various topics, getting creative with sentences and learning something new every day. As the team leader, she is very proud of her team members. By helping them with various projects and issues, she has realised that introverts though they may be, one should never underestimate the diligence and hard work they put into each and every project. She always finds that to be very motivating!
