AUSTIN, TX — Red Lorry Yellow Lorry has hired Jess Rees to lead its Austin office as part of the firm’s ongoing US expansion.

Rees joins RLYL after a decade running her own PR consultancy working with b2b tech companies, venture-backed startups and thought leaders.

In addition to overseeing daily operations, Rees will be instrumental in expanding RLYL's Austin office, which opened in January 2022. She also will co-lead the firm’s enterprise tech practice with Justin Ordman, who was elevated to the practice head role last year.

“With a decade of experience managing her own successful tech PR consultancy, we’re delighted to have Jess join us,” said North America head Meredith Eaton. “Her tenacity and no-nonsense approach have made her a hit with teams and clients alike. It’s already clear that she’ll play a crucial role in taking our US business from strength to strength.”
