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 quality-control, his eagle-eyes make sure nothing leaves the building until it's absolutely perfect. Also has second-job as an astronaut.
Carl's been with JMS since the very beginning - 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. You will already have heard his work on many occasions.
Hugh is a mod through-and-through, and it's his Vespa parked outside. Pure class.There's nothing the guy can't do when it comes to motion-graphics, 3D modelling and special effects compositing. When a client comes to us with an artistically challenging brief, we already know Hugh's going to rock it.
Anna is a vital cog in the JMS machine. Anna came to us with a great track-record at another production company. She now keeps all of our projects ticking like clockwork.
As George Bernard Shaw observed, 'To be in hell is to drift; to be in heaven is to steer.' Elena steers us all - she's an organisational linchpin, taking projects from initial concept to delivery and transmissions. Elena ensures you can rely on us to deliver superb quality productions on time and on budget. Relax, you're in safe hands.
Keith is another long-standing member of the team, having joined us in 1984! His experience in the direction of voice sessions, and the careful honing of superb radio and television commercial soundtracks is unparalleled. As with Carl, Keith's productions need no introduction - you've already heard them before.
Emma joined us four years ago as an editor, but has flourished into a very exciting young Producer and Director - both in television advertising production and corporate video content. Not only a skilled hand at producing commercials, Emma shoots them too. If we've not already sung her praises enough, she's a mighty-fine colourist too!
Luke's been our in-house TV commercial Producer and Director for ten years. He's refined and crafted a solid production style, and a seemingly effortless manner of direction thanks to scrupulous military-style planning. It's hardly surprising that our advertising agency clients often make a specific demand to have Luke directing their campaign.
Alice is our champion creative wordsmith, grammatical pedant, and burgeoning producer. Alice provides our clients with refreshing and sharp copy. Frankly, Alice develops creative treatments so cutting-edge we're afraid to touch them without having plasters within easy reach.
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 embrace the mystery of it all, happy in the knowledge that clients adore it.
Gabi is the most recent addition to the JMS team - and wow, what an addition! Gabi brings edgy creative ideas to any brief!
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... seriously, she can't sleep at night unless everyone's delighted.
Chairman of The Board, the original and the best. John founded John Mountford Studios - later becoming JMS Group - in September 1983. Following a long career with the BBC, John spotted the opportunity to establish a production company to make advertising for the burgeoning commercial radio industry. The rest, as they say, is history.
