Tara Tomes

Award-winning Birmingham PR agency EAST VILLAGE. was founded by PR expert Tara Tomes in 2013 after more than a decade working both agency and client-side for independent retailers, renowned fashion brands, large scale exhibitions and everything in between. Born out of a passion for collaboration, Tara was keen to create the kind of agency she would be proud to be a part of, introducing flexible working, creating ongoing training and development programmes, and pushing young talent to the fore.

Tara’s ambition was to create a business centred around a strong team culture and living by what has now become EV.’s everyday ethos: delivering PR with personality.

We’ve got a strong team spirit as a collective of comms professionals who just love what we do and we wear our heart proudly on our sleeve with our TeamEV Charter, which outlines our dedication to being the best we can be.
