Francesca de Lacey
Formerly a media-buyer with a London agency, at JMS she became a master of everything in relation to television campaign direction and skilful client account management. Francesca took the helm of JMS Group as Managing Director in 2015.
Carl’s been with JMS since the beginning, back in September 1983. Although he’s too modest to say it himself, Carl is a supremely talented audio producer. In a career spanning more than three decades he’s directed and mixed every type of audio project imaginable.
Tom has been with JMS since 1999 – now officially part of the furniture. He’s completed the production of several thousand television and video projects. Versed in all aspects of broadcast QC, his eagle-eyes make sure nothing leaves the building until it’s perfect.
Head of Administration
Cath’s been here since, since… well, none of us can remember how long! She manages the creation of radio campaigns for our agency clients. As the senior head of everything, Cath keeps our finances in check and makes sure all our clients are happy bunnies.
TV Director | Editor
Emma is an exciting young Director talented in television advertising production and corporate video content. Not only a skilled hand at producing commercials, Emma shoots and edits them too. She’s also a mighty-fine colourist!
Senior Motion Graphics Designer
Hugh is a mod through-and-through, and it’s his Vespa parked outside. There’s nothing the guy can’t do when it comes to motion-graphics, 3D modelling and compositing. When a client comes to us with a challenging brief, we know Hugh’s going to rock it.
Senior Sound Producer
Keith’s been here since 1984! His experience in the direction of voice sessions, and careful honing of superb radio and television soundtracks is unparalleled. Keith’s productions need no introduction – you’ve already heard them!
Senior Production Manager
George Bernard Shaw observed, ‘To be in hell is to drift; to be in heaven is to steer.’ Elena steers us all – an organisational linchpin, taking projects from concept to delivery, and transmission. Elena ensures we deliver superb quality productions on time and on budget.
Anna is a vital cog in the JMS machine, and will likely be managing your project. Anna came to us with a great track-record at another production company. She keeps all of our productions ticking like clockwork, with a breathtaking attention to detail.
Like our very own Don Draper, Tim will often astound the team in creative brainstorming sessions by saying something brief yet breathtaking, profound, and poignant. We don’t know where the hell it all comes from – we just know clients adore it.
TV Director | Creative
Alice is our champion wordsmith, grammatical pedant, and freshest producer. Alice provides our clients with sharp copy. Frankly, Alice develops creative treatments so cutting-edge we’re afraid to touch them without having plasters within easy reach.
Gabi is the most recent addition to the team – and wow, what an addition! Gabi’s colourful imagination conjures-up no end of edgy creative concepts! If ‘daring’ is called for – we know who to put on the case! Gabi writes for both radio and TV projects.
