Rob Pierre's Biography

Rob Pierre is an investor, advisor, and one of the UK’s most successful business leaders.

Rob co-founded digital marketing business Jellyfish in 2005 and as CEO, he grew the company to over 2200 employees, working across 28 global offices on clients including Google and Netflix. From a small agency to a global powerhouse with headquarters in London’s iconic Shard, Rob scaled Jellyfish to unimaginable heights, building a business worth hundreds of millions of pounds. Jellyfish was acquired by The Brandtech Group in June 2023.

Today, Rob is passionate about helping ambitious businesses to achieve sustainable growth as well as sharing his experience of launching an operating system for the modern age. A business innovator, Rob introduced a unique organisational infrastructure at Jellyfish that disrupted norms both within and outside the media world. This involved the dismantling of the traditional pyramid hierarchy and the introduction of distributed accountability. As well as freeing the business to grow without limits, the operating system fostered the development of an equitable, progressive and diverse culture.

Committed to supporting businesses that have a wider societal impact, Rob co-owns the Inside Out Project, the UK’s first clothing brand created and designed by young ex-offenders and is a founding member of Impact X, a venture capital company, founded to support underrepresented entrepreneurs across Europe. Rob is also the co-founder of technology company Infinity, an advisor and investor at ufurnish.com and the owner of Mber, a fine bar and restaurant in the City of London.

Rob is a contributor to the international speaker circuit, business and future of work podcasts, and national and industry press. In 2021, he appeared on the Channel 4 show ‘The Money Maker’ alongside entrepreneur, Eric Collins, who hosted the programme. Rob was awarded Media Leader of the Year at Campaign’s Media Week Awards in 2021 and featured in the Powerlist 2022, 2023 and 2024, a listing of the UK’s 100 most powerful black Britons. In 2024, Rob became a member of KPMG’s Black Leaders Network.
