MANAGING PARTNER

Tom Howe
I am the Founder and Managing Partner here at JEFFERSON and we specialise in Recruitment, Global Executive Search, Merger & Acquisitions and Venture Capital all within the marketing, creative and media arena.

I began my career within the marketing agency field and have over 13 years experience within Client Services, Business Development and Organisational Development. all while working for a number of leading integrated and brand comm marketing agencies, focussing on the B2B and B2C sectors.

After deciding to move out of the primary marketing agency network I joined a recruitment consultancy and worked my way up from consultant to manager and then finally became a business owner.

Our recruitment teams and specialist consultants are always interested in hearing from anyone who might either be seeking a new challenge, looking to recruit or considering developing their own business through merger, acquisition or investment. – All conversations are held in the strictest of confidence.

HEAD OF SOCIAL

Josh MacKenzie
I began my marketing career working agency side within Account Management before eventually making the move over to recruitment.

During my time within the marketing agency environment I managed to gain experience covering a broad spectrum of disciplines including integrated, DM, Sales Promotions and Digital Comms, working with various global brands such as Kelloggs, Coca-Cola and Anchor to name but a few.

I’ve worked for award winning media businesses and delivered record revenues and profits through nurturing talent and building careers. As a change manager, identifying the core qualities and motivation in talented media and creative professionals is both a talent and a passion.

After completing a recent stint in the US working as a specialist head hunter for Jefferson Group, I have returned to the UK to head up the social media function.
