Kris Kowalewski

kris-kowalewski_003Media Officer

After cutting his journalistic teeth on his university radio station, Kris landed a job as a junior reporter in 2001 with the Redditch Standard – his local weekly newspaper.

He worked his way up through the ranks to the post of chief reporter, interviewing the likes of Tony Blair, John Prescott, and Michael Howard.

With five years of experience, and an NCTJ qualification under his belt, Kris then crossed to the PR side of the fence, joining Birmingham City Council as a media officer in 2006.

Away from the stresses and strains of work, Kris has a burning ambition to visit all 50 states in America (running total stands at 11) and is mildly addicted to internet auction site eBay and eating Italian food!
