Meet the team
Christine Jones, Managing Director
Christine started her communications career working for a London-based PR consultancy. After two years of paying her dues, she was poached by a client who needed someone to rebrand their European business following an MBO. The project saw Granada Computer Services become Synstar International, and once completed Christine stayed with the company quickly rising the ranks. She masterminded all of the company’s PR activity and managed agencies in 12 countries, as well as acting as country marketing manager in Ireland, France, Belgium, Netherlands, and Spain. After three years in the role, the company listed on the London Stock Exchange and Christine was made head of investor relations and communications for the Group.
After six years with Synstar, she moved to John Laing plc, where she headed the Group’s marketing and communication function. As well as corporate marketing, she created what she calls a ‘crisis aware culture’ and managed all of the crisis-situations for the Group, its partners, and investments. She also worked on individual investment projects providing communications support. It is this experience that she brings to infrastructure clients today, requiring support with stakeholder engagement strategy and delivery.
Five years later, Christine created Tiger Mouth. It was late 2008, which coincided not only with the credit crunch, but also with the awakening of social media. Seizing the opportunity, she made Tiger Mouth the go-to company for advice and support in social media, as well as more traditional marketing and stakeholder engagement. When Mark Allen joined the business in 2013 the story became more complete, enabling Tiger Mouth to offer a more comprehensive digital offering.
Mark Allen, Video Director
Mark is first a foremost a storyteller. He can always find the story that you’re trying to tell and that’s what sets him apart from other film makers. He just can’t bring himself to make a dull film, even if that’s what the client wants, because let’s face it you don’t always know what’s best for you. The stories he tells connect with the heart and make audiences want to get closer.
He is a BAFTA nominated film producer and director. He started his career as a journalist (just ask him to tell you the stories about working on local radio and day time TV – if you’ve got a day to spare), and then became a producer for BBC news and current affairs. One if his first shows ‘The Sound of Music Children’ won a Royal Television Society award. Later, his multi-award winning ‘Born to Boogie’ DVD on the work of Marc Bolan was described by the trade press as the ‘best music DVD to date’. He has also directed a number of prime time TV shows.
Ruth Campbell – Project Manager
Ruth is responsible for the production management of our clients’ projects. She ensures that all social platforms are regularly populated, manages shoot schedules and updates websites. Ruth enjoyed a successful career in TV production, working for the BBC, Channel 5, The Discovery Channel and MTV. She has also launched and runs an online business, marketed entirely through social media. She keeps all of the projects on schedule, managing our suppliers and keeping our clients up-to-date

Hannah Jean – Personal Stylist and Master Style Consultant
Hannah works with our clients who want to develop their personal brand, are looking for fresh ideas with regard to their personal style but are often time-poor in terms of their energy to invest in their wardrobe.

She is passionate about the difference image can make, whether on a personal level or in the workplace, she understands how knowing yourself can equip you for life. Her body image work with organisations such as The Prince’s Trust and the Dove self-esteem project enable her to be an active part of changing the status quo.
