Paul Mead joins Jellyfish as an Executive Board Member

Paul will be working closely with the global leadership team, providing strategic support to the group as it continues its rapid growth. With 20 years experience, he is widely regarded as one of the most influential figures in the media industry and has been voted one of the top 100 people in the UK digital industry.

Having left the publishing industry to join a dot.com in 2000, Paul built the business to 2m monthly active users and launched one of the UK’s first CPC ad models, building a client base including more than 200 of the UK’s leading advertisers.

In 2006, Paul founded the search division of VCCP Media, which he then grew from a two-person team to a top 20 full-service media agency. After leaving VCCP in 2016, Paul continued to work with the group as a consultant.

In addition to his role at Jellyfish, Paul will continue to work as an advisor and consultant to major technology companies, brands, start-ups and private equity firms.

"I think Jellyfish as a business is structured in exactly the right way to take advantage of what’s going on in the market. There’s a huge amount of digital transformation going on, and therefore, a requirement for clients to works with businesses that are specialists in the space but still understand how digital activities connect with the broader picture. When I look at the market, there are very few companies with the mix that Jellyfish has. It’s an exciting story that’s unfolding and I am excited to be a part of that and help drive it over the next few years.”

“We’re really excited to have Paul join as an executive board member. When something presents itself as an opportunity, I feel it is a no-brainer to have the discussion. Luckily, that led to Paul agreeing to join us and help us with our rapid growth. The timing was perfect.”

Rob Pierre, CEO at Jellyfish
