Holmlands was founded in 2016 by highly experienced PR professional and certified ski instructor, Cameron Ross Hall.
The name of our company comes from the street where his father grew up in County Durham in the North East of England, 'Holmlands Park', Chester-le-Street.
Each house his father moved to was subsequently named after the street where he was born, and so naturally each house Cameron lived in growing up, also carried the name 'Holmlands'.
With Holmlands being so closely associated with a feeling of belonging and sense of home, it aptly became the name of our business.
The personal meaning behind our name is intrinsic to who we are, what we do and why we exist; because, for us, personal relationships are at the very core of business.
We believe in working closely and collaboratively with clients that share in our passion for adventure and business, helping to deliver key messages and reach new audiences through effective media solutions.
We create and implement bespoke media campaigns that speak directly to core markets, placing emphasis on quality of delivery, with a deep understanding of all elements of the marketing mix.
However, Holmlands is not just a media consultancy - our services are what we do, but not who we are.
We're passionate, hard working adventurers who never settle for second best and believe our clients shouldn't either, adopting a hardworking philosophy inherited through our northern roots.
Our philosophy is simple, "keep moving forward."
The world is constantly changing, and with new opportunities and challenges presented daily, we understand that to grow, you need to be seen and heard by the right people.
We are creative, innovative and disruptive and that's exactly the kind of clients we like to work with.
Whether you are an athlete, a destination, an established adventure sports brand, a start up tech company or an outdoor clothing brand, we can help.
We are results driven and take great pride in our work.
Above all, like you, we enjoy success and our growth comes from ensuring we deliver meaningful media solutions to help your brand fulfill its maximum potential.
Our drive for adventure keeps us motivated to achieve new goals and that's the same philosophy we bring to our work.
We're here to help you move forward, maintain a competitive advantage and reach new heights.
