OUR PEOPLE

CH3_edited.png

Clive Howse

CEO

Affectionately known as the Chief, Clive set up M.i. in 2009 after a 17 year stint as MD of MediaCom’s Direct Response Division. When not at M.i. HQ, you’re likely to find him out walking around old buildings or out in the country... with a nice pint waiting at the end. 

Richard Slater

Managing Director

Rich is one of M.i.’s earliest employees, moving over from MediaCom shortly after its inception and helping shape the company. A life long Crystal Palace fan, if you fancy listening to hours of the trials and tribulations of the club, he’s your man. 

Jamie Hewitt

Business Director

Jamie is an advertising chameleon, working with clients, agencies, and media, of all shapes and sizes, bringing a wealth of experience to any challenge. Outside of work you’ll find Jamie rustling up a feast from his woodfired oven. 

Sam Denning

Operations Director

As employee number 1, Sam has always been there to ensure the smooth running of M.i. However, we live in fear she will one day runaway to Rome and never come back – such is the level of her fascination with the place.   

Andy Brander

Planning Director

Andy's planning career has taken him from media independent to the UK's largest network and from integrated creative agency to co-founding a start up.  Out of work he spends any spare time not chasing around after his kids with his head buried in weekend newspaper sections! 

Freddie Constable

Business Director

Starting her career in 2010 in network agencies, Freddie joined M.i. in 2016 where she now leads the company’s Marketing and New Business strategy. In peak lockdown she acquired an allotment and is now attempting to live the Good Life! 

Sophie O'Brien

Business Director

A self-proclaimed data geek with a degree in Maths, the more difficult the challenge the better for Sophie, or SOB as we affectionately know her. She’s been spreading her love for maths for over 10 years across a range of clients, industries and roles – more recently in schools where she volunteers as a tutor. Her talents don’t stop at numbers, she can also do the cups song from Pitch Perfect!  

Jo Blake

Investment Director

Jo’s investment experience is second to none after stints at Zenith, Carat and Havas including running an OOH specialist agency which won 11 awards for innovation – if there is a deal to be had she will find it for our clients. Previous experience also includes singing telegrams – what more could you ask for! 

George Hobday

Biddable Director

George leads M.i.’s biddable team, making sure we are always at the forefront of what is an ever-changing landscape. When he isn’t optimising media campaigns he is optimising board game strategy – do not challenge him to a game of Catan.  

Kelly Kershaw

Business Director

Kelly started working in media 16 years ago (alongside some familiar M.i. faces!) and has worked across a diverse range of clients from Retail Banking to Home Entertainment to Charity and Travel! Outside of work, Kelly can be found scampering around the trails in the Chilterns, and cooking up a storm as a reward afterwards! 

Jerome Charles

Finance Director

Previously Head of Finance at Havas’ Digital Trading Desk, Affiperf, Jerome keeps us all in line making us stick to a budget. He’s also an avid tattoo collector, with a love for French cooking. 

Gary Revill

Business Director

Gary has been at M.i. since 2018, following 10 years working in some of the biggest agencies in the UK. Away from work, he is currently trying to improve his golf game from ‘Embarrassing’ to ‘Acceptable’. 

Katie Spicer

Business Director

Katie’s degree in Social Psychology instilled a passion for working out what makes people tick and how this translates into delivering meaningful campaigns. Her claim to fame is Katie Spicer (née Affleck) is related to the real-life Ben Affleck! 

Craig Gallacher

Account Director

Craig joined M.i. Media as our fresh-faced account executive and today is one of our Account Directors, though perhaps slightly less fresh-faced! Craig is a passionate supporter of the England football team and once wrote and recorded (at a real life recording studio) a World Cup song which can be found in the darkest depths of YouTube. 

Francesca Mehl

Digital Account Director

Francesca began working at M.i. Media in the midst of the Covid-19 lockdown, ushering in a new era of digital onboarding for the company! She brought with her varied experience from Uber to Nissan. Her talents don’t end with media – she can even split an apple into two pieces with her bare hand.  

Kushtrim Jeta

Biddable Account Director

Kush has worked in digital marketing for over 8 years, on clients from Barclays to

The White Company, winning awards while he is at it. In his spare time he is currently writing his own philosophical theory.  

Raylene Vickery

Paid Social Manager

Raylene specialises in Paid Social. She worked in compliance before stumbling across the digital world - it was the best career move she made! Her true love is dance and she is currently working towards being an advanced salsa dancer. 

Sophie Wright

Account Manager

Sophie joined as an office manager in 2016 but quickly chose her own role in planning and buying instead! She has serious charity experience having worked across SPANA, BookTrust, Battersea Cats and Dogs Home, Action on Hearing Loss, Macular Society and Starlight. In her spare time you’ll either find her curled up with her cats watching a Netflix documentary or at the top of a climbing wall. 

Neil Baker

Digital Account Manager

Neil recently swapped the beaches and mountains of Wales for a life in the big city. He joined M.i. with a wealth of digital marketing experience, specialising in PPC. Through Lockdown Neil added a new hobby of playing the guitar… look out Ed Sheeran.  

Nathan Kerr

Account Manager

Equally well versed in brand building and performance, Nathan’s experience ranges from high end retail to new app launches. He can play the ukulele too… three songs anyway! 

Jamie Walsh

Digital Account Manager

Jamie joined M.i. fresh from completing his Master’s degree in Biology in 2018 – starting in our biddable team and quickly learning the ropes. He's currently working on becoming the world record holder for greatest number of houseplants.  

Sophie Hill

Senior Account Executive

Sophie joined us in 2018 after completing her MSc at Durham University – jumping straight into a number of accounts and hitting the ground running. In her spare time, she can often be found performing with the London Symphony Chorus at venues such as the Barbican and Royal Albert Hall! 

Micheal De'ath

Account Executive

A period in recruitment was short-lived as Michael realised he wanted to pursue a career in media and advertising instead, as he enjoys a bit of data crunching and analytics - we think he fits right in! He is also an avid supporter of Arsenal… unfortunately.  

Dorottya Fazakas

Digital Account Executive

Dorottya joined M.i. Media in the middle of the lockdown after completing her Master’s degree in Economics at the University of Leeds and quickly put that analytical skill to good use! She is passionate about music and has a sizeable collection of vintage records which she cannot stop talking about! 

Rachel Richards

Digital Account Executive

Joining us in the middle of a pandemic, Rachel’s degree in Mathematics with Climate and Ocean Studies sparked her love for numbers and data and led her to pursue a career in the digital marketing world. She originally hails from South Wales, can fluently speak the language and won’t hear a bad word about the rugby. 

Jessica Howorth

Account Executive

Jessica's degree in Economics from the University of Leeds led to a number of different analytical roles before putting them to use at M.i. when she joined in 2020. And when she's not poring over a spreadsheet, Jessica excels in the kitchen.

Toni James

Finance Manager

Toni has been working in media for over 30 years. After taking a break from the industry, Toni was tempted back into the world of media as Finance Manager to cover maternity leave – that was 5 years ago! When not at work, she's most likely to be found in an art gallery or museum or anywhere else she can get her culture fix! 

Pushpa Patel

Accounts Payable Assistant

Pushpa has over 15 years of Accounts Payable experience in different industries in London and Perth (Australia) and has previously been nominated for a board award in Leadership. When not in the office she is honing her skills on the Netball court! 

Ben Forrest

Finance Executive

Coming to us from 6 years in Hospitality management, Ben brings those number crunching skills to all things finance for us… The numbers also make him pretty decent at poker, challenge him at your own risk.
