Director of Global PR & Communications
Brendan Drewniany is currently the Director of Global PR & Communications at luxury travel company BLACK TOMATO, tasked with implementing a global strategy including marquee campaign launches, partnerships, travel products, thought leadership opportunities, brand features and awards. In his first 12 months at Black Tomato, Brendan increased brand exposure and media placements by 78%, and today the brand receives industry accolades and awards it was previously not recognized for. An expert in luxury brand development, Brendan demonstrates the necessity for brand communications leaders to set trends and gain media attention through innovative initiatives. In response to a growing trend in multi-generational travel, Brendan played a key role in launching 'Take me on a Story,' a campaign that targeted families seeking meaningful experiences. It featured five itineraries inspired by classic children's literature, combining fantasy, luxury and literary accuracy. He also spearheaded the literary travels with Agatha Christie’s Estate – which led to a major collaboration with the James Bond empire and EON Productions, making Black Tomato the first official travel partner to curate an incomparable set of itineraries inspired by James Bond’s iconic travels.
