Yvonne Eskenzi - Director - Follow on twitter
 
Director and Founder of Eskenzi PR – 27 years in PR - Yvonne originally worked for non-profit organizations and charities where she learnt to be creative and resourceful, running promotional campaigns on a shoe-string.
 
Prior to starting her business in 1995, Yvonne was head-hunted to spearhead Rupert Murdoch’s new exhibition division at News International as Head of PR & Marketing where she launched three of the UK's largest exhibitions working alongside the Sunday Times, The Times, The Sun and News of the World. It is using these contacts on the national papers and coming from a consumer background that has enabled her to look at every IT story from a mass market angle. Seventeen years ago Yvonne set up Eskenzi PR with Infosecurity as her first client, which she and her partner, Neil have continued to work on ever since. Now she only focuses on promoting a few select companies in the IT security arena.
 
She is proud to have been described in the PR Week Most Rated Agencies report as “the matriarch of technology PR – what Yvonne doesn’t know about PR or her security clients cannot be categorised,” they said.
 
Okay so here comes the fun part – when Yvonne’s not being a “PR professional” she’s usually doing something up, like a house but right now a rather old warehouse. She loves designing stuff, anything from furniture to jewellery, gardens to kitchens. Otherwise you’ll find her with her 2 teenage girls, or cooking or eating out with friends and family. Travelling to far-flung places is also a bit of an obsession.
