Charis Whitcombe - PR Manager
Charis works as both a PR professional and motoring journalist, and hence sees the industry from both sides of the fence – and understands exactly what the media require in terms of well-written,
highly targeted and timely information.
After graduating from Oxford University in 1988, Charis spent eight years at a London PR agency where she rose to Account Director – gaining experience in planning the marketing and media
strategies for Fortune 500 companies through to small, local businesses.
As a journalist she is currently retained as Associate Editor of ClassicDriver.com, News Editor of Auto Italia magazine and Motoring Correspondent of the CSMA Club Magazine (Civil Service Motoring
Association), which is often cited as ‘the largest circulation motoring magazine in Europe’. She is also a road-test writer for New Car Net.
On the PR side, recent clients have included Race Retro (the International Historic Motorsport Show) and the CSMA Brands Hatch Classic Festival, while Charis has overseen the PR activities of
Motor Racing Legends for the last ten years and now also manages PR for the Donington Historic Festival.
