    Matt Turner

    Managing Director

    Matt founded Clownfish Events in 2009. A consummate event professional, his ambition and energy remain the driving forces of the business today.

    Clownfish has taken Matt from Chessington to China (and everywhere in between) on a quest for new and innovative event ideas for clients like Apple, Google and YouTube.

    He is a lover of music, people and food - and on the rare occasions he is not working you’ll find him enjoying a bit of sea air on the South Coast.

    Sara Sinclair

    Office Manager & PA to MD

    During the summer of 2017, Sara swapped luxury limousine bookings for a giant Scalextric when she moved out of the financial services sector to join Clownfish.

    Sara is MD Matt’s right hand woman and has the challenging task of organising his busy schedule. You’ll usually find her in the office, but every now and then she loves changing her heels for boots and getting stuck in at events too.

    If Sara’s not at work, she’ll be enjoying brunch in various places around London; chilling with best friends Ben and Jerry; or up in Derbyshire getting some well needed country air and R&R.

    Kieran Aguma

    Senior Event Manager

    We first met Kieran when he was midway through his A-levels. A year later, with a new-found passion for events, he joined us permanently to become part of Clownfish’s journey.

    When it comes to looking after our kit and warehouse, Keiran is the man. You may see him out on the road or managing an event, but behind the scenes he is the person that makes sure all our equipment is in tip-top condition and ready for your next big occasion.

    When he’s not at work, he likes to spend his time in the gym… but keep your eyes peeled and you might spot him on a Boris Bike with his friends.

    Matt Blagdon

    Senior Event Manager

    Matt has been a professional actor on stage and screen for many years, but he’s widely known for his notable role as Guy from the Over 50's Life Insurance Ad.

    He brings bucketloads of enthusiasm and personality to his work in events and is a true fun face of Clownfish.

    Matt is equally at home in hip East London as in the vastness of America; loves a homely roast dinner just as much as a buffet of all the world’s cuisines; and is happy kitted out in traditional smart suits or streetwear. He considers himself a cross-culture traveller and loves change in all it’s varieties.

    Jacob Doyle

    Event Team

    Jacob joined Clownfish in 2013. His degree in Technical Theatre means that he is usually found behind a sound desk or scaling a lighting rig.

    He has worked his magic on a huge number of our events - including press conferences, fundraisers and performances - and is passionate about making sure that every technical requirement is taken care of.

    When he’s not at work, Jacob loves rock climbing and building electronic circuit boards… although perhaps not at the same time.

    Jack started working for Clownfish whilst he was studying for a degree in Primary Education. He fell head over heels in love with our brand and our people and hasn’t been able to stay away since!

    Jack loves driving our vans, so you’ll often find him out and about on the road. He also injects a healthy dose of energy, fun and enthusiasm into our events and is well known for his beaming smile.

    When he’s not at Clownfish, Jack is travelling the globe and adding to his bizarre collection of road and traffic signs, vintage number plates and other odd things.

    Nathan joined us in 2014 and was immediately won over by how every Clownfish day is different.
