Owner and Founder
Having worked for more than 20 years in the PR industry, Li is a well-respected figure. She gained experience at leading public relations agencies in the UK and USA and managed a raft of premium clients, including Four Seasons Resorts, Bulgari, St Regis, Hotel Bel-Air, Badrutt’s Palace St Moritz, Auberge Resorts and Capri Palace Hotel and Spa. Over the years, she has also worked on hospitality and tourism for Chelsea Football Club, and with high-profile actors and entertainers. Since setting up Storrington in 2008, she has achieved excellent media coverage, both in the UK and abroad, for her portfolio of luxury travel clients. Unlike many agencies in which clients are managed by junior staff, Li brings her high level of knowledge to every project, and works closely and personally with all of Storrington’s clients.
Kevin has worked as account manager on extensive PR campaigns for Storrington’s luxury travel clients, from private islands to spas and five-star hotels. He works across a variety of accounts, handling all aspects of client management, overseeing smooth and effective execution of campaigns, strategies and day-to-day press activity. Before joining Storrington in 2009, he was a lawyer and managed a legal team for 15 years. He has worked on a variety of PR campaigns, which include launching Desroches Island to the UK, Alphonse Island to the luxury market, and helping One Great George Street become the official accredited media centre for the London 2012 Olympics.
Our highly experienced team works so closely with clients that they often think of us as an in-house resource rather than an external agency. We are well connected with the media industry, regularly meeting with key journalists and editors so that we understand their needs in order to achieve the best results for our clients.
Lucy started her life in PR working on unit publicity for feature films. She has organised high profile events, co-ordinated press launches and works closely with clients to ensure that the coverage they receive is relevant to themselves, their brand and the media. Lucy’s one to one management style sets her aside; whilst working within normal conventions she also thinks creatively. She has built an eclectic and comprehensive address book which is an invaluable tool when it comes to opening doors; importantly getting to the right person. Lucy’s press contacts are extensive and long established, she has built strong working relationships with the press. She recognises that a healthy relationship with the media is of the utmost importance, having seen first-hand how this can fast-track and enhance meaningful exposure.
