The Mission Team
Wayne Taylor-Managing Director
Darts has always been a real passion for Wayne, when he’s not in the office he’s on the oche! Following university, where Wayne gained his degree in Business, he went to work managing the IT network for a large law firm based in Manchester. It was at this time Wayne devised a plan to couple his passion for darts with his significant expertise in IT and knowledge of business. Back in 2005 e- commerce was in its infancy. Wayne, alongside his wife Andrea, had the foresight to anticipate the seismic shift that was heading towards the retail landscape when they set up Darts Corner Ltd. Darts Corner very quickly established itself as the world’s number one online retailer for darts and associated products. As the owner and Managing Director of the world’s largest darts retailer Wayne has an unrivalled knowledge of products within the darts industry, and it’s this knowledge that is Mission’s driving force. In building the Mission team Wayne has brought together industry experts to bring exceptional products to the world to darts.
