Meet Our Team

At Brand Spanking Marketing our creative advertising and marketing team is at the heart of everything that we do and we all share the same core values of honesty, accountability, respect and trust.

Integrity in the way we do business is a fundamental cornerstone at Brand Spanking Marketing – this is not something we’re prepared to compromise, ever! Most importantly, we are big believers in having fun in everything that we do!

Tracey Felicidade Jones


Tracey is Brand Spanking’s fearless leader and founder. She’s been around the FMCG and pharma block a couple of times over her 20-years’ experience in sales and marketing. She held prestigious positions such as Customer Manager at Tiger Brands and Category Marketing Manager at Nestlé Professional before going out on her own and starting her agency. Ever the ambitious adventurer, Tracey has lead Brand Spanking’s move to the US – with the aim of expanding the business globally. She is also a keen cricket fan who loves socialising over a braai (BBQ) and music.

Jennifer Girdwood


Jen is our local team-lead and superstar. She’s a quirky hybrid of the creative and conscientious and is the glue that holds us together. She is our client-whisperer and is all about making things happen for the brands we serve. There isn’t a day that goes by without someone in the office asking, “How does Jen do it?”. Jen loves animals, sports, fashion and spending time with her fabulous friends.
