Our much-loved leader and passion behind the business. Responsible for all MADs great bar and restaurant ideas, which have taken us from one bar to a portfolio operation and growing. Likes telling long jokes whilst drinking champagne. Manchester born and bred.
The star of the MAD show and daily driving force behind the business. Wiser than his years. Comedian. Loves the finer things in life, especially drinking Ace of Spades champagne.
Knows everyone and everything there is to know about the restaurant and bar scene in Manchester – she’s worked for some of the biggest and now the best. Drinks way too much gin and has an award winning dance routine to Nena’s 99 Red Balloons.
There's nothing funny about Andrew, he's an accountant. But his surname is Blackburn, he lives in Blackburn and he supports Blackburn Rovers. Bit funny?
Has worked in many different sectors but loves the pace and energy of hospitality. A real passion for people development and seeing employees progress in the business. Proper Yorkshire lass and keen supporter of Town Terriers.
Head of Compliance and Procurement
Been there, done it, got the T-shirt having spent the last decade working in hospitality across the country, which makes her a training and development guru. She has no free time because she spends it all in our venues!
Jayne has been in the industry since she was at school and has worked at some of Manchester's finest establishments. She loves hats, ale and whisky, is obsessed with Kylie and has a growing collection of Monopoly boards.
MAD Project Manager
Puts a camp twist to project management and earnt his silver stripes after 10 years working in the Gay Village. Spends his weekends with (in his own words) hunky door men at Hula and loves the drama of the hospitality industry. Of course he does!
Alix De Ruijter
Bar Operations Manager
Looks after all things drinks and bars related for MAD. Vegan and loves a boomerang!
John King Wilson
Loves a meal deal and getting his money's worth. Don't piss him off at traffic lights.
Lives for Red wine, Cheese, Gin and cakes. But not all at the same time! Loves musicals and baking and Sci-Fi!
Always sassy, occasionally savage. Spends all the company money (allegedly). Arnie fan, moon gazer, high class hippy - will never say no to a tequila.
Graphic Design Manager
Loves United, Star Wars, Macca and dogs.
Loves Kanye. Half Italian.
Digital Marketing Executive
Loves a good Snapchat, a 5am gym sesh and a well organised lunch. Photographer and videographer on the sly.
Digital Marketing Apprentice
Digital Marketer, musican, video editor, dog enthusiast and awkward bio writer
Over 10 years experience in Epos and part of a hospitality dynasty - her family have been in the industry for over 30 years! Mummy, book worm, wedding planner and massive softie. Dreams of emigrating to New Zealand one day and is a county champion swimmer and former lifeguard.
The eyes, ears, right hand and left hand for Mark and Jon. Mummy. Dog botherer. Guinea Pig cuddler and Eddie Vedder obsessive.
Assistant Management Accountant
Started off as an apprentice within finance but still needs a calculator to add up. Loves a good selfie (or 10) and can't say no when it comes to a pair of shoes!
Yes to skiing and not boarding!
Loves Liverpool Football club
Business Development Manager
Snazzy, loves a city break and a 600 calorie diet
