Amanda and Chris

Founded in 1984, BBR is owned and run by Chris Reed and Amanda Thompson.

Chris is a designer/typesetter/editor with over 25 years’ hands-on experience. After graduating in Spanish from the University of Sheffield he stayed on for seven years, working first in PR and then setting up and running the University’s Graphic Design Service, before leaving in 1995 to run BBR full-time. He has particular expertise in full-colour books, large document preparation and task automation, and edits in both English and Spanish.

With degrees in both social sciences and engineering, Amanda joined BBR in 2001 after 11 years as a transport planner and technical writer working for international civil engineering consultancies. While specialising in economic and business history, her multidisciplinary background makes her a versatile and meticulous editor across a wide range of subject areas.
