Communications and Marketing

Philip Gomm provides communications counsel for Blackrook Media and leads all of our public relations projects.

He is currently Head of External Communications at the RAC Foundation. The Foundation is a registered charity and one of the country’s leading research and advocacy organisations. It is renowned for the quality of its work and the strength of its arguments.

Testament to the charity’s standing and Philip’s professionalism comes from a 2011 Ipsos MORI poll of transport journalists in which the RAC Foundation was ranked, out of some 50 different bodies, 1st for media relations and 4th for familiarity.

Prior to joining the Foundation, Philip spent more than a decade working for ITV at both regional and network level, first as a general reporter and then as a lobby correspondent at Westminster.

He has reported from all over the world including Afghanistan, Pakistan, Uganda, the Czech Republic and the United States.

Alan Rook provided world class leadership during the pre-launch project phase of the Arise network, which is a global TV and mutimedia service focusing on parts of the world which do not receive the attentions of traditional media. Alan's media experience and his excellent communications skills allowed him to create and manage a team which laid the foundations for the network's successful launch. He was able to take the original vision of the service, add to it and turn it into a practical media product. He was involved in the selection of the senior management team, whom he trained and guided. He co-ordinated inputs from Arise offices in Africa, Asia and the USA. His contribution was pivotal in the development of the network.
