About Clearline Communications


ClearLine Communications is headed by brother and sister team Matt and Marina Johnson, and since its foundation in 1990 has grown into a highly regarded media relations and marketing business.  In its first years the portfolio included multinationals such as Esso Petroleum and other clients ranging from conservation organisations to major health authorities.

Marina's yacht racing and yachting journalist experience led ClearLine to build an emphasis on marketing in the marine industry. She is a member of the Yachting Journalists' Association and a qualified Yachtmaster. Marina has had several decades of senior client management experience in medium to large sized companies, advising on overall marketing strategies to achieve corporate goals, and providing a hands on approach to event management, relationships with the media and creative and practical marketing solutions.

Matt Johnson MBA joined ClearLine after spending ten years on a City trading floor to help broaden the business and utilise his experience in the fields of finance, IT and sales & marketing. Matt is also an experienced racing sailor, and is married with three sons.
