Suzanna Hammond

“For most of my career I’ve worked with luxury and lifestyle companies, including tourist boards and international hotel groups. It’s a sector I love and know well and I feel very privileged to have worked with so many talented people. I also get a real buzz from helping to launch amazing new start-ups and then seeing them flourish. What we offer as Hammond Bespoke is a ‘360 degree’ approach based on a blend of consultancy, marketing and PR support, backed up by relevant experience and impressive contacts. And we deliver the results you need! Jenny and I are involved with every client in our luxury lifestyle portfolio, which has included on the jewellery side, de Grisogono, Richard Ogden and Leo de Vroomen and the iconic designers, Fei Liu, Beau Han Xu and Isabella Liu. We’ve also been lucky to work for Baselworld for twelve years and fourteen for International Jewellery London (IJL).”

Jenny Hall-Thompson
Jewellery, Lifestyle and Retail Associate

“My background was originally in retail, initially at Harvey Nichols, ultimately heading up their press and marketing department. I then moved on to head up PR at Liberty, then to Aveda as UK Marketing Director, before making the move into lifestyle and luxury PR consultancy. Retail is my forte and I am fortunate to have forged good shopping and lifestyle contacts, for not only the jewellery but also beauty, fragrance and homewares sectors. I enjoy the creative process and adding marketing value to our PR programmes – as well as masterminding our consumer campaigns, both nationally and regionally.I also enjoy working with brands that have green and eco interests.”

Sarah Jordan
Jewellery Associate

“I am an experienced editor, content marketing specialist and copywriter with a background in the luxury sectors, especially watches and jewellery. I have worked with a range of clients across B2B communications, marketing, brand storytelling and PR, including International Jewellery London, Gem-A, De Beers Diamond Jewellers and Global Radio. My strength is creating authentic and engaging brand stories that attract the attention of the media and consumers alike. I also use my skills as an NCTJ-qualified journalist to write features for a range of publications, such as Tempus, Rapaport, Retail Jeweller, Harrods Watches & Fine Jewellery, Salon QP, The Jeweller, JFW and many more.”

Syreeta Tranfield
Exhibitions and Events Associate

“I have 20 years’ experience in the events industry across a range of domestic and international markets, from interior design and jewellery to inflight catering, exhibitions and retailer conferences, parties and launches – all of which are part of my remit. I take a very strategic and creative approach to events, as well as being highly motivated and diligent. Face-to-face engagement is so important and I strive to make the opportunity to connect with others productive, valuable and thoroughly enjoyable. I also love working with like-minded people who expect the very best to make their dreams and ideas become a reality. The thrill of hosting a great event is worth working for!”

Carole Stewart

“I specialise in the news media – helping clients to identify and build stories that have the potential to be carried in mainstream media – be it broadcast or print. My skills include crisis and issues management and media training – helping clients to hone their presentation skills and become confident .”

Tracey Johnston

“Having worked at Reuters, I have focussed on the corporate and business side. What I especially enjoy is getting ‘under the skin’ of a company to understand what makes them tick. I have a very forensic approach and along with my journalistic skills enjoy creating and running successful international launches and campaigns especially in the health and sustainability sectors.”
