Matt Jones

Owner & CEO

I have nearly twenty years' worth of experience in the Advertising & Creative Industry and thirteen years as an entrepreneur. I have founded, launched, bought and sold multi-award-winning businesses across various sectors, held senior roles within the media industry, developed brands in the most challenging industry segments, and sat on the board as CMO for one of the UK's Fastest Growing brands. With my vast and varied experience, I know what it takes to grow a brand, whether it's for a start-up or an established business. If your business need an equity-raising strategy or an impactful advertising campaign to take it to the next level, I have the expertise and knowledge to develop stand-out solutions that deliver results.

Partnerships Director

Our client relationships need to be based on more than just transactions. They must be open and progressive in order to provide the perfect backdrop for us all to prosper. Therefore, we only enter contracts with businesses where we can build strong, meaningful partnerships. That's where I come in. I have extensive commercial awareness and have built and maintained partnerships with some of the UK's fastest-growing brands. Operationally, I will onboard and work with your team to translate the most complex strategies into a language everyone involved in your business can understand.

Aaron Corria

Client Account Director

I have worked in the education and training sector for almost a decade and have delivered employment and educational projects to some of the hardest-to-reach demographic groups and most deprived communities in Wales by creating hyper-targeted, highly engaging communication strategies. My passion lies in working with people, communities, businesses, and brands, unearthing their potential to develop communication strategies that will impact and change future outcomes.

Jamie Hibbard

Jamie Hibbard

Creative Director

My experience in creative stretches all the way back to the tender age of 14 years old, when I did a week's work experience at my then favourite magazine – so I've been storytelling professionally for over 30 years! Since then I've been editor and senior editor on magazines, before moving across to agency life as content director and then creative director, specialising in creative and brand strategy. If you've got a brand and a story to tell, then we can work out the best way to tell it, and how to reach your specific audience. At Rebel-Lion, we're about creative with purpose.

Jake Hicks

Jake Hicks

Junior Content Creator

I'm a passionate creator with a wide variety of creative skills. Having started my career in the creative field at a young age, I had already taken on my first clients at 17 and became Marketing Manager at rapidly growing CIC a year later. By 21, I had helped drive the company to generate over 3,000 online orders in three years, shipping to over 18 countries and providing a free to use, award-winning mental health service to over 350 people. All whilst operating in a small town in coastal Wales. I'm now focussed on bringing everything I've learned to Rebel-Lion's clients.

Sophie Jones

Sophie Jones

Head of Social

I have a lot of experience working across a wide variety of different brands and sectors, in-house, on an agency basis and freelance. I've worked across all areas of marketing, before deciding to specialise in social growth. I have successfully grown socials from under 50 followers to tens of thousands and achieved pieces of viral content ranging from 2-12 million in reach for multiple clients. I've always been a very creative person and thoroughly enjoy both the strategic planning and content creation elements of my role, developing an idea from an initial thought right through to a finalised piece of content is an incredibly fulfilling experience for me. I live and breathe the social world: when trends emerge you can bet I’ll have already amended your strategy to utilise them. I understand how to help businesses find their place within the social world, helping them grow the community of loyal, and engaged people they need, and I am thrilled to now offer that knowledge and experience to our clients at Rebel-Lion Advertising.

I am passionate about running a smooth operational system in the business, and approach new experiences with passion and a determination to succeed.
