Chris Patmore

Chris joined Whiteoaks in July 2020 as Head of Media and brings with him more than 20 years’ experience in PR and communications. Having begun his career in-house, in the early days of the internet’s evolution, he went on to hold senior positions agency-side, working with a wide range of technology clients from ambitious start-ups to established multinational corporations.

During his career, he has run global communications programmes across the fintech, enterprise IT, retail and other technology sectors. This has included putting clients at the heart of media coverage on topics as diverse as artificial intelligence, risk and regulation, data management, payments, customer loyalty, SME finance and more – helping them to not only participate in but also shape the debate.

Favourite food/drink: Coffee, freshly brewed in my trusty Aeropress. For food, it has to be curry, particular South Indian dishes.

Interesting fact about you: I was a cook on a wellbeing retreat in Crete for a summer season. Hard work but amazing experience in a fantastic location.

Favourite ‘out of work’ activity: I’ve practised yoga for many years, which often involves some very early mornings to get on the mat before work.

Favourite type of holiday: Sunshine and clear blue sea.
