by | Nov 9, 2022

Element Communications, the specialist B2B technology PR agency founded in 2019 to support ambitious technology companies with authentic communications, has announced the senior appointment of Ben Cossor, who joins as a Director.

As the former Head of Technology PR at PHA Group where he spent more than nine years, Cossor brings a proven track record across client services, team building, proposition development and new business. His appointment further strengthens the expertise and experience of the senior management team at Element, as the agency continues its impressive growth trajectory.

Element has established itself as a preferred PR partner for scale-up technology businesses across fast-growth sectors including sustainability tech, fintech, cyber security, HR technology, telecoms and other leading B2B hotspots. Its clients include Scope3, MentionMe, Connectd, FNA and Risilience. Element has also gained the trust of VCs and investment firms that facilitate startup growth, who partner with Element to help accelerate commercial success. For example, the agency represents Capita Scaling Partner, part of the FTSE 250-listed firm Capita, and is the preferred partner to the startups within its portfolio.

Element was founded by former Whiteoaks International Client Services Director, Tom Webb, and quickly attracted fellow Whiteoaks board member and Director of Business Development, Simon Moss. Now a team of 10 serving over 20 clients, the agency says its growth is fueled by referrals and a strong connection to the tech start-up ecosystem.

Tom Webb, Founder and CEO of Element Communications, commented: “Ben has proven himself to be one of the most exciting talents in our industry and we’re delighted to welcome him to Element to support our continued growth. His management experience building and operating a successful technology division autonomously within a larger practice, coupled with the wealth of knowledge and expertise he brings to our fantastic client base, makes him a real asset for our young agency, which has become one of the fastest-growing B2B consultancies in the UK.”

Having run PHA’s technology PR division for more than three years, Cossor has led strategic communications for some of the world’s most innovative technology companies, championing collaborative client relationships and retention throughout.

Cossor added: “Working in corporate and technology PR for the past decade has meant I’ve helped so many incredible tech companies build their strategies, tell their stories, and see the impact of targeted PR campaigns. Fast-growth, ambitious brands need a PR partner that shares their passion and entrepreneurial mindset, and this is built into Element’s DNA. It’s the perfect time for me to join the business and I’m excited to help shape the future of an agency that has already achieved so much in a short space of time and has the ambition to go even further.”
