Meet the Team

See the people who make our team!


Having been involved with Ryslip’s export department since the early 1970s, Liz has seen many changes over the years.

Now in her senior years she is still very interested and keen to stay in touch with the latest regulations and enjoys talking to customers especially dog people and breeders.

However as most things become more complicated and never simple, she is quite happy to leave the more technical side to her two sons, John and Clem, to ensure an efficient service.


Following his father’s legacy of starting up Ryslip Group Ltd in 1962, John joined us in January, 1982.

John went on to meet his wife Jackie here, and to have 2 children, one of which also now works here.

John is a director of the company and has been working in the pet travel industry for 40 years.

He is the proud owner of 2 Lancashire Heelers.


Rebecca has been a part of the team since 2017 and has quickly become a reliable and knowledgeable member.

Rebecca joined the team after graduating from Royal Holloway, University of London with a degree in Economics with French.

Her hobbies include horse riding and baking.

She has a horse and 2 black cats!


Natalia is our newest member of the team having joined us in July 2021 and has proved she is a quick learner and valuable team member!

Natalia graduated from The Polish National Film school with a bachelor degree in Journalism and Social Communication.

Her hobbies include travelling and cooking.

She has a big fluffy Samoyed cross called Winter.


Mavis is our office dog and has been with us for nearly 8 years.

Mavis is always very keen to meet visitors, and will even warm your seat up for you before you arrive!
