Mariela De La Mora

Group: Marketing & Communications
Office: London Office
Job title: Head of Marketing

I’m a California girl turned Londoner with a passion for blogging and travel. Born and raised in San Francisco to a loud and outspoken Mexican family, I’ve always been led by my heart, my ambition, and my unfiltered opinions.

I spent my 20s hustling hard – working my way up in marketing and earning a Bachelor's degree and 2 Masters, until I quit my job to travel solo across Europe for 8 months. On that trip I fell in love with London, I got my UK visa and officially traded Cali burritos for crumpets by making the move to the Big Smoke.

Although hospitality is new to me, I’ve been in marketing for 14 years for industries ranging from insurance to hip hop music to tech. I’m also the co-founder of a philanthropic dating app in California and advice columnist for the UK Daily News Service. Needless to say, I love what I do.

I’m happiest when I’m creative, or discovering new things. I love blogging, travelling, cooking, photography and weight lifting. I also love my Bengal cat who is harness trained, so you can often find me walking him in the parks of west London. I am adjusting to British English and the metric system, but I swear I was a Londoner in another life!
