Tom Coates

Wherever there’s a pavement, there’s a health-conscious Tom trotting along every lunchtime.

Tom started his career in the media industry as a sports journalist, before branching out into public relations, marketing and copywriting. In more recent years, he has developed his skillset to include digital disciplines like web design, digital design and SEO.

He has delivered award-winning PR campaigns on behalf of some of the UK’s biggest brands, including Ladbrokes, Asda and Ebuyer, having worked in an agency environment for the last seven years.

Tom also has public sector experience from spells in comms roles with a school, a local council and a governing body, while he was a part of the four-person PR and marketing team that delivered the record-breaking Rugby League World Cup in 2013.

He most recently built a strong client portfolio while working for himself before joining Faith on a permanent basis in 2021.
