Welsh Creative Agency Celebrates Top 100 Women in Business Win


One of Wales’ biggest creative companies, Orchard Media & Events, is once again celebrating another triumphant win – this time with all eyes on one particular member of the team.

Ellys Evans, Head of Events at Orchard, has been named as one of Wales’ top business women 2019 in the Top 100 Business Women in Wales List.

Ellys studied stage management at the Royal College of Music and Drama. From a work experience placement six years ago, Ellys has progressed at Orchard and now sits as Head of Events -at just 27 years old. She has been involved in organising sporting events, royal visits and international music festivals for a number of high-profile clients and has grown the team from strength-to- strength; cementing it as one of Wales’ go-to events companies for major events.

Director at Orchard Media and Events, Alastair Wilson comments;

“Ellys is very much a member of the Orchard family and has been with us from the start, so we’re really proud we could support her through her development to Head of Events. Orchard Media and Events is a leading creative and strategic hub in the heart of Cardiff, who never shy’s of promoting equality and diversity within the work place and championing those who really work hard to deliver exception results. Ellys continues to work with her team to deliver high quality events that our clients are always really pleased with. She has been instrumental in Orchard’s growth over the last few years, playing a pivotal role in the events team’s success, and to see her in the Top 100 list is something we can all agree is very well deserved.”

To celebrate the achievements women and girls are playing in the local economy, business and the community, the Top 100 Business Women in Wales List was co-founded in 2017 with Pinkspiration and I Am Woman.

Every year, it proves even more successful than the previous. Last year the Top 100 Business Women in Wales List trended online and televised reaching more than 1 million people. At the awards there were more than 200 community members. This year the award ceremony will celebrate success at a VIP pink carpet, star studded awards ceremony at the Mercure Hotel Cardiff 7pm-9pm on the 24th of September.

Ellys also featured in Wales Online’s “35 under 35” list in 2018, where 35 young people are recognised for their business successes throughout Wales during the year. Orchard will be celebrating Ellys’ win this evening, with Ellys obtaining another great title under her list of career achievements.
