Boomerang is a PR and digital communications consultancy, established in 2009
We're a small, experienced team of PR professionals, journalists, designers and developers based in Manchester, working with businesses of all sizes across the globe.
We act as a strategic partner for SMEs looking to grow, and with internal marketing teams at larger companies and organisations looking to fill a digital skills gap. We also provide a discreet, white label service for bigger agencies.
We specialise in the architectural and design, media, cultural and creative sectors, but can apply our expertise to any brand looking to benefit from a stronger digital presence.
If you're looking to make a tangible difference to your business but don't want to work with an agency, Boomerang is the right fit for you.
Meet our founding partners
Boomerang is headed up by husband and wife, Katy and Tom Cowan – and includes a team of consultants that provides a full service solution for your PR and digital communications.
After graduating in journalism in 2000, Katy became a broadcast journalist, covering major breaking stories and reading the news live on the airwaves. She later switched careers to work in PR and joined Citypress – a leading PR agency, supporting brands such as Google and United Co-operatives. In 2007, she went freelance to specialise in PR and digital communications.
In 2009, she merged her business with her partner, Tom Cowan, to launch Boomerang. Since then, the consultancy has grown to attract clients across the world, including BBC, TATA Group and Jaguar.
Aside from Boomerang, Katy is part of the team at Creative Boom – an online magazine that she founded in 2009 and now attracts half a million monthly readers.
A graduate in Computer Science, Tom started his own consultancy in 2003 and has spent the past 13 years working as a full-stack developer. He has supported brands such as BBC, Tesco and WHSmith, and through his wealth of skills and business expertise has helped to transform fledging companies into multi-million pound success stories.
He especially enjoys working with small to medium-sized businesses, helping to develop their offering and unlock their growth potential through strategy, design and development.
He is particularly passionate about supporting firms with legacy software, where other developers might be unwilling to step in and help.
Aside from Boomerang, we also run our own online magazine for the creative industries. What began as a side project for Boomerang's founder Katy Cowan in 2009, now attracts half a million monthly readers and has become a leading resource for creative inspiration and support. Since its inception, Creative Boom has been invited to Buckingham Palace for The Queen's Coronation Festival and 10 Downing Street to help advise the government on small business. It has also attracted advertisers such as BBC, Yahoo and Samsung.
