Emma Ellis | Managing Director
Emma is an award-winning Chartered Marketer with over 13 years’ experience in various roles, Emma has proven strategic and organisational change success in transforming businesses and taking them to the next level. Emma loves to help small businesses ensuring they have the marketing support to reach their business goals and objectives and has a track record of doing exactly that. Emma also loves helping the younger generation with their career development hence the apprentices we have here at Amber Mountain Marketing.
Emma also loves drinking too much gin, dancing badly and then moaning about drinking too much gin and dancing badly.
Tamzin Klyen | Marketing Manager
Tamzin is an experienced marketing specialist and our social media guru, who is also highly skilled in WordPress, LinkedIn Marketing, Email Marketing, Websites, Design and Business Development. In fact, there isn’t really much she doesn’t know. Although Emma pretends to be, Tamzin is very much the boss at Amber Mountain Marketing and is the reason it has grown so quickly. Although Tamzin took the apprentice route to build her marketing career, we think she definitely went to university somewhere, to get her degree in sarcasm. But we wouldn’t have it any other way. Tamzin also likes to tell Emma to stop drinking too much gin and to stop dancing badly.
Sarah Mugele | PA to Director
Sarah is our amazing PA and Office manager she keeps us in all in check and we quite frankly couldn’t be without her! Sarah ensures our diaries are organised, accounts are up to date, and recruits our new team members! Sarah has bags of experience working in both large corporates and owner-run businesses as well as a BSc degree in Business Information Systems. Sarah is also the Mum of our office – strict when she needs to be, but spreads so much love at the same time! Sarah has also done her whole house up due to religiously sticking to Tia’s personal goal setting challenge every week! What a woman! Sarah also loves a cheeky prosecco or three! Everyone needs a Sarah in their team!
Tia-Lily Girdlestone | Marketing Assistant
Tia joins us as our very first apprentice at Amber Mountain Marketing. Before joining us Tia was studying, achieving three A-Levels in Business Studies, Media Studies and Sociology. Tia has work experience with Fortem, Marie-Curie and Tesco’s which taught her the many ways to market successfully and ignited a passion for marketing. Tia is full of enthusiasm and her can-do attitude makes her a perfect fit for Amber Mountain. We too are learning from Tia, who has taught us some amazing ‘welwyn street’ language such as ‘Jarring’. Do ask her what they mean when you speak to her!
Ollie Lallement | Marketing Assistant
Both Emma and Tamzin have worked with Ollie and supported him at the beginning of his apprenticeship and when our client asked if we could support Ollie as an Amber Mountain employee, we bit their hand off! Due to his experience in his past role this guy really knows his stuff, like Tamzin he is incredibly techy which allows Tamzin to have someone to bounce ideas off with (A bit like a scene of the IT crowd hahaha). Ollie is also very innovative with ideas and a great communicator! His sarcasm in on par with Tamzin’s so it means double trouble, when Emma makes her regular ditzy comments! But we wouldn’t have it any other way.
Adam Kingston | Marketing Assistant
At last Amber Mountain gained our first boy, we find it quite apt that his name is Adam! Adam joined us in December and took well to the gaggle of women he has to work with. What we love about Adam is he just cracks on, never saying no to any new task and taking it all in his stride. It a short space of time the results of his efforts have astounded us, with great financial returns for his clients. Adam sits with his head in his laptop and earphones on most of the day, working as hard as he can for his clients (and probably because he is in an office full of girls), but when he does make an appearance, his one-liners have us in stitches. His love for Karen (our office scooter) which we won at a charity event is a bit weird but he can do a mean trick or two for sure.
Ella Grappy | Marketing Apprentice
After working with the likes of ASOS.com and Mind, Ella realised her passion for content creation. She even started her own blog and YouTube channel in 2017 and took courses in Graphic Design and Digital Marketing prior to this apprenticeship to gain experience (she’s on it!!). With years of experience in Customer Service, Ella is fantastic at adapting her writing to any tone of voice in order to suit her clients. Ella sits quietly in the office getting her work done but she’s blown us off our feet already! If everyone in the world could have half as much ambition and motivation as this girl, the world would be a better place! You rock Ella!
Cara Wyper | Marketing Intern
Cara spread her infectious smile across the office as our first Marketing Intern! After studying Media Studies in sixth form, Cara continued her studies at Bournemouth University, undertaking a degree in Communication and Media. She is currently completing her placement year before completing her studies. In just a matter of weeks it felt like Cara had been in our team from the beginning, and it’s going to be so tough when she has to leave us to go back to Uni! Cara has truly made an impact in the office with her immense blog writing and her beautiful handwriting (Tia actually lets her write on the whiteboard too!!). We also love her Instagram stories rants……If you have a spare hour and want a laugh, ask her about them!
Aidan Hogan | Marketing Apprentice
Before joining Amber Mountain Marketing, Aidan studied both Media Studies and Graphic design at GCSE and A-level, throughout lockdown Aidan worked in the Coop longing to start his career in Marketing and holding out for us to give him a start date, which finally came in March 2021. Aidan was certainly worth the wait and fitted in straight away! Aidan enjoys the content creation and graphic design elements of the job, with his customer service experience allowing him to write in the tone of his clients. Aidan is a massive Watford FC fan and enjoys heavy metal music… Both questionable choices in the eyes of everyone else! He has also very quickly got his name out there for the lightweight of the team. If you take him for a beer. Make sure it’s just the one. 😂
Arron Woodcraft | Marketing Administrator
After previously training to be in the army, Arron joined us our very first Kickstarter. We are really pleased that government has started this initiative and without it we may have never met Arron and he may of never got his first step in the door as a marketer! Arron is always on his toes helping out our apprentices by building their clients’ following and creating our Instagram Story content – from his ‘What You Doing Wednesdays?’ to ‘Quick Fire Friday’s’ he definitely puts the team on edge, which in turn makes for great content! 😊 His dry humour and ‘can do’ attitude fits perfectly into our office.
Alara Ali | Marketing Apprentice
Alara joined us in April as a Digital Marketing Apprentice. Before joining us Alara studied Business Studies, Psychology and Art and Design. She was previously working with a fashion company Oasis and has experience with British Airways and Cancer Research. What she loves about marketing the most is creating graphics for her clients and getting their branding to really stand out from the crowd. In her spare time, she enjoys going to the gym, thrifting (Emma had to ask what that was), understanding the power of crystals and drinking cocktails (Emma asked if she could come too).
Amy De Castillo | Marketing Apprentice
After completing her A Levels in Business and Politics, Amy decided to take a gap year where she travelled to countries in Asia, and also worked part time at Sainsburys. Amy quickly became the stores youngest supervisor and also found her passion for marketing whilst handling instore advertising. At the beginning of the year, Amy also created her own fit-stagram and has had experience writing mental health blogs for different charities including Time to Change and NCS. Amy has come to Amber Mountain with a thirst of knowledge and a drive to be an immense marketer, and we can see the makings already. Amy is also a keen gardener and week on week is beating her PBs in lifting weights at her gym. This girl doesn’t stop wanting to be better, and is just what we are all about at Amber!
