Meet The Team




Steve Aicheler - Entrepreneurship Manager

Steve graduated from Cardiff University in 2000 and promptly started his first business venture. This innovative ecommerce company was the Welsh winner of the Ecommerce Awards three years in a row, one of the first businesses incubated by @Wales and traded successfully for 12 years.

With over 15 years of hands on business experience Steve brings to the team skills in business administration and a practical knowledge of the business environment. Steve's interests lie in small business finance and in ensuring that potential entrepreneurs have developed the skills required to take a step back from the business idea and to ensure that they can create a viable and successful business from a financial standpoint. Steve also has practical experience of many issues which are of relevance to new entrepreneurs such as HR, health and safety, company registration and bookkeeping requirements and is therefore able to ensure that entrepreneurs are able to access the advice that they need.

Steve has been a member of the team in the Centre for Entrepreneurship since 2013 and is responsible for extra-curricular engagement and jointly responsible for start-up support and the incubation/accelerator programme.

Hannah Willis - Marketing, Events and Administration Officer

Hannah graduated with an Event Management degree from Cardiff Metropolitan University in 2015, and has since worked in a variety of marketing and events roles within the sports sectors, as well as a PR role within an agency environment.

In 2017, Hannah set up her own gluten free cake company after noticing a demand for allergen friendly special occasion cakes following her own diagnosis of coeliac disease.

Working alongside Lyndsey within the Centre, Hannah is responsible for event planning, marketing & social media, engagement with students, and the delivery of extra-curricular entrepreneurship activities. 

Outside of work and cakes, Hannah is actively involved with a semi-professional rugby team supporting the clubs’ marketing, PR and social media requirements.
