Mantra Marketing Group


Meet The Team

Francis Colam

Chief Operations Officer

I joined the Mantra team over 12 years ago straight after University. Over the years my role has developed into an extremely varied and challenging role and ensured that my work ethic has remained at an extremely high level. I genuinely love my job, which is all the incentive you need to work hard and progress within the industry; you get out of it what you put in, so to have a natural passion and positivity for the work is paramount, especially considering you are directly dealing with people on a daily basis.

Having expanded through the UK, Spain and Russia, my role includes managing the recruitment and administration team throughout. It is hugely rewarding to see the progression of individuals within the company. There is a real team-focus at Mantra; James and I work closely with our Crew leaders /Assistant Owners and New Owners which in turn helps them develop their teams and offices. We are rapidly moving forward as a company and I manage events within the organisation as well as helping to develop new projects, of which there are many. I am excited to see what this year brings.

James Buckley

CEO / Founder

Mantra Marketing was founded October 2001 in Bristol. We started off in a small office suite with just four people and a lot of determination to succeed.

Looking back on how far we’ve come is astonishing, but a real testament to the commitment and drive of the company. In a short space of time, we have expanded throughout the UK, across Spain and into Russia, with offices in 16 different cities such as London, Barcelona and Moscow. We are continuing to establish new connections as well as building upon the relationships within our current network. Supported and inspired by the success we have already experienced, we are continuing our expansion throughout Europe.
