Paul Kelders

Founding Partner & Managing Director

Paul founded jump! in 2004 with Sinéad, having previously worked in Marketing, Innovation and Brand and Consumer Strategy with DIAGEO in Ireland.

Prior to that, Paul held senior/Director roles in three of Ireland’s leading advertising agencies. In 2009, he was made Fellow of the Marketing Institute of Ireland in recognition of his services to marketing in Ireland.

Paul has worked extensively with government and private industry across finance; drinks; sport; tourism; communications; food; entertainment and mobility sectors. Despite this wonderful track record, he hasn’t yet managed to work with his beloved Liverpool FC. One day!
