CEO and Founder
A leading communications specialist in luxury travel and lifestyle. Her public relations career spans four decades of working in many sectors and communicating at all levels from board to junior executive.
Jane’s involvement in PR began with representing Virgin Atlantic at high-profile events including the launch of the airline. Her first in-house managerial role was for Orient-Express Hotels (now Belmond) where she created the company’s dedicated hotels press office. Before setting up Media Contacts in 1993 she worked as an account director for agencies large and small, representing tour operators, tourist offices, luxury hotels and resorts, restaurants and chefs.
With Media Contacts Jane has brought her luxury hotel expertise to the service of clients including Relais & Châteaux, Kempinski Hotels & Resorts, Forte, Le Meridien, Conrad Hotels & Resorts, Niche Destinations as well as individual properties in the UK and Europe, including prime golf resorts (The Old Course Hotel in St Andrews and Les Bordes in France). She has strong relationships across the ski, spa and health sectors, representing Alpine resorts and tourist boards (SalzburgerLand, Mürren, Valloire, Alta Badia, Val Gardena); family holidays (Sunelia Vacances in France and Shorefield in UK) and business travel (Citadines Apart’hotels/The Ascott).
In a previous life Jane had a career in ballet and jazz dance for seven years. She also took time out to run PR for a pressure group, The Friends of John McCarthy (1986-1991), campaigning for the release of British hostages in Beirut.
With Media Contacts since 2013 as a senior account executive, Anne brings 20 years of experience working in high profile IT companies and the hospitality industry. Promoted to account director in 2016, she works closely with Jane on behalf of all clients, with special responsibility for new media activity. Anne has completed an intensive social media training course, graduating with top CPD accreditation. As well as managing Media Contacts PR’s social media platforms she engages with clients, auditing an existing platform, analysing data and curating content to grow presence and following. She is no less adept at traditional PR and familiar with key influencers in luxury travel and lifestyle. Her creative input, efficiency and enthusiasm deliver impressive results.
Anne is a keen traveller and active sportswoman (skiing and netball in particular). When not in the office she is likely to be found outdoors, exploring on foot or a bike.
