Associate Group Lifestyle & Wellness PR Director
Winning PR of the Year in the 2021 YunoJuno awards, Vanessa has 25+ years' experience at a senior level and was a journalist before moving into PR. Her experience spans celebrity, FMCG, fashion, sustainability, hospitality and food and drink sectors, among others. Having worked both in-house and agency-side, Vanessa has directed global strategies for household name brands and, being the daughter of a former national journalist, has news sense and writing as part of her DNA. Experience includes brands such as Tesco, Fosters, Red Bull, Sky, Durex, Bodyform, TENA, Plenty, BooHooMan, Vionic and Cushelle. Very accustomed to giving senior-level advice and keeping a cool head during crisis situations, Vanessa still gets as much of a thrill from getting results for clients today as she did when she started in PR. She is highly respected and well connected within the media, and has a great contacts book! Vanessa joined the WHITEHAIR.CO collective in 2022 as Associate Group Lifestyle & Wellness PR Director, utilising her vast experience and strong contacts to lead the agency’s portfolio of lifestyle accounts.
