NAOMI TARRY – DIRECTOR AND CO-FOUNDER, BEST OF SUFFOLK.
Naomi and Alex Tarry set up Best of Suffolk in 2006, driven by a passion to bring the standards and experience of a boutique hotel to self-catering. Naomi is a former Institute of Directors East of England Businesswoman of the Year.
Before launching Best of Suffolk, Naomi established her career in Press and Publicity, working at the BBC over six years, promoting TV and radio programmes, including working with the BBC Natural History unit and Sir David Attenborough to promote BBC One series The Life of Mammals. Prior to this, she worked as a Senior Press Officer for the Government, under the Blair administration, as well as in the Private Offices of various Government Ministers, including the position of Assistant Private Secretary to the Schools Minister Estelle Morris.
Naomi says “What I love most about working at Best of Suffolk is reading through the fantastic feedback that we receive from our guests – for me it means it’s a job well done.”
When she’s not at work, Naomi enjoys walking and cycling with her husband Alex and their Jack Russell ‘Rosie’. She also enjoys getting involved in community activities and is a former Chairman of the Aldeburgh Business Association, where she galvanised the business community to help Aldeburgh become the amazing place that it is today.
