The credits

meet the team

they run the show

Mark Hopkins

as Managing Director
In setting up We'll Mind Your Own Business, Mark merged the financial probity learned at KPMG with the dynamic can-do creativity at Celador (where his roles ranged from FD through to COO), to create a service that is a powerful combination of strong controls and out of the box dynamism. Mark has made a point of building the company around this image, and is incredibly proud of the team, not only because of their proficiency and professional skills, but because of their personalities and that wonderful spark they all possess, which drives them to providing the best service they possibly can, in a pleasure-to-know manner.
