Team Heaven

Lynsey Devon, Founder & Chief Executive


With 25 years’ experience representing tourism and lifestyle businesses around the world, Lynsey is one of the UK’s best known and most respected names in travel PR.  Having spent two decades establishing Hotelplan as a leader in the luxury ski, city breaks and villa fields, she set up Heaven Publicity in 2012 after overseeing PR for TUI Travel PLC’s Specialist Activity Sector and its acclaimed stable of 104 companies.

There are few travel-related areas that haven’t benefitted from Lynsey’s invaluable expertise already. What’s more, she’s as comfortable promoting charity events and retail brands as she is pushing hospitality and tourism-related companies – a skill that ensures the Heaven team is equally confident securing print, digital and broadcast coverage outside the traditional travel pages as well as within them. Plus, she is consistently asked to share her vast knowledge with others, and is a regular on the judging panel at the World Snow Awards, presented by the – now discontinued – Telegraph Ski & Snowboard Magazine; further proving her talents and expertise as ‘Snow Queen’. 

With her exuberant personality, unrivalled black book of media, blogger and celebrity influencers and passion for new experiences, Lynsey’s hands-on approach could be exactly what you need to inject energy into your business.

Catherine Crone, Non Executive Director

Cath Crone

With more than 30 years’ experience in adventure travel, passionate Francophile Catherine is a fun-loving, sun-seeking shopaholic whose colourful vices include red wine, blue cheese and anything pink and/or sparkly!

Catherine’s career was marked from an early age when she told her primary school teacher that she intended to “write travel brochures” when she grew up. Fast forward through a Modern Languages degree, a season as a Campsite Courier (in the days when people actually wanted tents), various Operations and Marketing roles, multi take-overs and restructures, and Catherine took over as Managing Director of specialist cycling & walking tour operator, Headwater.

A natural leader, with infectious energy, Catherine is now devoting her time to doing what she enjoys best – promoting her love of the “real” France and the Med (food and wine, the great outdoors, art history, fashion and design) to anyone who will listen.

Lucy Chisholm, Senior Associate Director of Marketing and PR

LucyAt the tender age of 18, with no idea where she was heading, a chance meeting with a PR & Marketing Consultant harnessed her vibrant personality and set her on the path. Fast forward 30 years, Lucy has worked with an eclectic mix of international and national, hospitality and travel companies across Marketing, PR and Brand. 

With a background of driving growth, Lucy has energetically supported the likes of Gordon Ramsay to Exclusive Hotels, from Playboy Club to British Airways subsidiaries, and from ski resorts to sun escapes globally.  

When not heading for the sun or slopes, Lucy can be found walking her dog, Lawrence, around the Dorset countryside, at Twickenham cheering from the stands, or at home trying to master the perfect Aperol Spritz and Beef Wellington.

From all this, it’s no wonder she’s often referred to as ‘the Duracell Bunny’!

Rachel Johnston, Junior Account Executive

Rachel JohnstonWith a vision of pursuing a media-centric career from an early age, Rachel relocated to Leeds to complete a degree in journalism. After graduation, she gained a year’s experience in marketing and another year in PR. When working at her first PR agency, Rachel had the opportunity to experience the mountain lifestyle, travelling to and from the French Alps as a resort representative for groups from around the world.

Working in PR full-time – with occasional trips to different ski resorts – got her thinking about incorporating skiing into her everyday life, leading Rachel to discover a seamless fusion of her passions here at Heaven Publicity.

She’ll be the first (and last) at après, and will never say no to a spicy margarita… or fondue.

Arthur, Newshound

ArthurLike his owner Lynsey, Arthur has a remarkable ability to sniff out a story wherever he is. He has a passion for the great outdoors, a natural curiosity about the world around him, and a relentless energy for everything he does. His dogged determination means he can be counted on to launch himself into every new project very enthusiastically. He lives with his younger brother, Charlie (below), and together they make sure Lynsey and her family never have a dull moment


CharlieA massive fan of the great outdoors, Charlie (Arthur’s younger brother) is a very happy-go-lucky boy. Described as ‘excitable, affectionate and playful’, he loves being around people, especially his owner, Lynsey, and is always willing to please. When summer swings around, Charlie spends his time kayaking and paddling with his family on the Thames.


LawrenceFrom Romania to Twickenham to Dorset, Lawrence, like his owner, Lucy, loves to travel.  A superb alarm clock and walk promoter, he loves nothing more than socialising and chasing sticks. He’s not partial to water, vegetables or personal hygiene, but as keen as mustard to investigate muddy puddles or roll in something attractive (and often very fragrant). He loves his bed and is inseparable from his toy, ‘Pinky’, who has been his best friend for more than eight years.
