Her personal goal is to visit all of the world’s natural wonders– she has 3 down so far! When not gallivanting around the globe, Debbie enjoys long walks with her dog, a Japanese Akita called, Logan or relaxing with a long G&T! Her claim to fame is that she once met Sir Paul McCartney and appeared in the TV show, Trouble at the Top.
Jo Prosser

Jo’s agency career has spanned London, New York, Melbourne and Manchester delivering creative campaigns for the BBC, Warburtons, KPMG and Westpac.

Louise Brocklehurst
Louise BrocklehurstFinance Manager
Having worked in accounting for over 20 years, Louise is an expert in Excel. When she’s not crunching numbers, her garden keeps her busy. She’s redesigning the landscape to accommodate a recently completed fairy house. A bit of an amateur manicurist, her gel nails are the envy of the office and, if we’re lucky, she sometimes shares her skills with the rest of us. Louise’s other obsession is her boot collection which currently stands at around 30 pairs!
Amy Jordan
Amy JordanSenior Account Manager
Amy’s exceptional client-side experience of the retail industry affords Maynineteen an unrivaled focus. Our resident soap queen, Amy loves keeping up with the goings-on in Albert Square and Coronation Street. She lets her hair down with the odd glass of Prosecco or two and enjoys regular dance classes to keep fit. Amy is another Take That devotee with a huge crush on Gary Barlow.
Mike Bufton
Mike BuftonSenior Account Manager
With 10+ years international experience in experiential brand activation, Mike returns to the UK after almost a decade in Dubai. Our resident DJ, Mike loves music and was awarded an outstanding contribution award in 2016 by Timeout Dubai for his service to the event & music industries. This mild-mannered family man with two amazing children loves nothing more than kicking and punching a big, heavy bag – Muay Thai style!
Isabel Waxman
Isabel WaxmanAccount Manager
Isabel is fiercely ambitious and a steely opponent on the ski slopes having perfected her technique during the two years she spent living and working in Cananda on the 2012 Winter Olympics. She always brings her A-game to Mayninteen and, with her competitive streak, Isabel is someone you want on your team! At weekends you will most likely spot her hanging out in West Didsbury or cooking with friends.
Paige Ashworth
Paige AshworthAccount Manager
A seasoned professional in experiential events and staffing, Paige is avid gig-goer and music lover. When she’s not standing front-of-stage for The Foals, she’s out quaffing Gin and discovering new restaurants in Manchester. Her perfect night in is spent curled up on the sofa with her pet pug – She’s still working on that, but as soon as she gets one she’ll name it Albus because she’s also a massive Harry Potter fan.
Amanda Ashburner
Amanda AshburnerAccount Manager
Working with our key client accounts, Amanda joins the team with a wealth of event experience managing the client portfolios for Cystic Fibrosis Trust, Unilever and House of Fraser. An ex-roller hockey player, you’ll often find Amanda at the ice rink in Altrincham cheering on her favourite team, Manchester Storm! She’s smiley, friendly and loves a good chin-wag over the odd glass of wine!
Michael Wright
Michael WrightAccount Executive
With a degree in event management from Leeds Beckett University, Michael is a seasoned events professional having gained experience as artist liaison manager, stage management, and production at Grillstock and Parklife. He loves to cook, and his dinner party guests of choice would be; Gordon Ramsay, Jamie Oliver, and Heston so he could judge who really is the best TV chef. At weekends he loves sharing a beer and a game of Bingo with his mates.
