Jack Rivlin – Editor-in-Chief
Uni: Cambridge, City
Jack founded The Tab at Cambridge with George, below, after falling out of love with the existing student papers.
Following a stint DJing in the depths of the Amazon, Jack returned to these shores a new man – a man with a vision for the future of the British media.
He heads up the editorial side of The Tab – so it’s his fault you’re reading this.
Finest hour: CUSU condoms sabotaged. He also did numerous Telegraph Blogs and got an Evening Standard front page once, but he’s “prouder of the connies scoop”.
George Marangos-Gilks – CEO
Like his fellow Greek Prometheus who brought fire to mankind, George brightened the world of students when he and Jack founded The Tab in 2009.
George co-ordinates every non-editorial aspect of The Tab with a smile on his face and a twinkle in his eye.
Kangaroos love him, and you will too.
Matt McDonald – Deputy Editor
After his friend Brad introduced him to Jack and George as a penniless second-year, Matt assumed the helm of The Tab (then The Drop) at Exeter.
He headed it up for 18 months and didn’t really develop his prospects much, so was offered a full-time job at Tab HQ naturally. A real Dick Whittington narrative.
Finest hour: The internationally acclaimed Blowmeo and Juliet – which featured in several national papers, the New York Daily News, French Closer magazine and on Japanese TV.
Grace Vielma – Deputy Editor
Juggling the editorship of Manchester’s Tab with her secret life as an absolute legend was no mean feat for Grace.
Since graduating in 2013, she’s helped cultivate The Tab’s expansion to unchartered territories with her no-nonsense northern attitude and excellent phone manner.
Tom Jenkin – News Editor
Uni: Nottingham, Nottingham Trent
Tom Jenkin breaks news stories like that girl in the year above breaks hearts.
Having first edited The Tab in Nottingham, he balanced studying for his NCTJ with working part-time as a managing editor at HQ.
His favourite past-times include spitting in public and playing darts.
Harry Shukman – News Editor
Hailing from the Tab where it all began, Harry chose to break up the chaos of studying at Cambridge with a relaxing year abroad in Cairo during the Arab Spring.
If news-hounds were a real breed of dog, Harry would win Crufts.
Finest hour: Soiled! Titchmarsh show producer causes sexist stir
Craig O’Callaghan – Special Projects Editor
Craig loitered around Bristol for so long after uni that he thought he may as well set up The Tab’s most anarchic wing in his spare time.
Much of what Craig does now is top secret – rest assured he does it well though.
Rachel Donald – Assistant Editor
You know that scene in Pulp Fiction when John Travolta shoots adrenaline straight into Uma Thurman’s heart? That’s what this Scot did when she took over The Tab in Aberdeen.
Now she does it full-time at Tab HQ. A bona fide skull-cracker.
Finest hour: NUS delegate has SEVEN-person orgy in lunch break
Roisin Lanigan – Assistant Editor
Uni: Queen’s University Belfast
Roisin claims the honour of editing The Tab’s first overseas site.
If that wasn’t enough, she’s also dominated the national site’s features section over the last year – mostly by interviewing people from the internet subcultures of which she’s a member.
Cat Reid – Assistant Editor
In her first email into The Tab, Cat mis-spelled the word ‘enquiring’. She’s never quite forgiven herself, and has worked ludicrously hard as news editor, editor and now assistant editor in what she sees as some warped form of penance.
Finest hour: Homophobia on campus: The harsh reality
Sam Dean – Assistant Editor
Sam Dean makes a weekly sacrifice to the Aztec god of keenness. In return, he acts as its agent on this mortal plane, spreading enthusiasm and a willingness to learn wherever he sets foot.
You would be wise to heed his words.
Ryan Barrell – Social Media Manager & Pictures Editor
The mouthpiece through which The Tab speaks, it’s rumoured that Ryan’s middle initial is ‘#’.
Ryan also masters the dark arts of Photoshop and is so rugged that even his beard has a beard.
Finest hour: Tips from the bar: How not to get served
Alex Whyte – Commercial Director
The lean, mean, fat-reducing selling machine.
Fun fact: Alex regularly attends a gymnasium.
George Herbert – Media Director
The ice to Alex’s fire, George was once described as ‘quite cool’ by someone else at Bristol.
It’s on the third line of his CV.
Brad Vanstone – Experiential Director
Brad’s been making people happy for the last 23 years, and we’re glad he’s now decided to do it on behalf of The Tab.
Spent most of his time as a student running club nights and doing his hair. Also owns one of those Libertines jackets that people like.
