Meet the founders

Joanna Jones - Co-Founder (CEO)

I have always had an ambition to set up my own business so in late 2001, that’s exactly what I did. Room 58 is a passionate company looking to push the boundaries. Leading with customer experience we will always ensure that solutions are easy to use and fit for purpose. Global brand protection is my aim. Saving them money is even better!                  

I still endeavour to set up my own charity, along with becoming a motivational speaker, inspiring mothers and women in the business sector.

I have a degree in Economics, International Business, French & German and over 20 years’ experience in marketing. Throughout my career I’ve launched and promoted numerous brands across the world.

Martin Jones - Co-Founder (CCO)

Together with my wife Jo, we are passionate about creating a software and creative agency that’s different from others. We care, we get to know the customer and understand their problems by walking a mile in their shoes. We take the time to listen and ensure we fully understand our customers’ requirements.

To me Room 58 is a team who are equally driven to and are passionate about delivering amazing work. We’re always striving for creative/technical perfection. Delivering better, more innovative outcomes for our clients.

I love what I do and over the years I have done this for a number of recognised marques. I have spearheaded technology development, marketing delivery platforms and brand guardianship solutions for a range of globally recognised brands including my favourite Harley-Davidson®.
