Emily, an account supervisor in the New York office, largely focuses on national clients in the commercial real estate, technology and software industries, providing strategic oversight for clients with a focus on thought leadership.
Emily’s path to account supervisor at the Pollack PR Marketing Group (PPMG) has been somewhat unconventional. Starting fresh out of college, Emily began her career working for the House Committee on Financial Services in Washington, DC. Her knack for communicating complex policy in a digestible way, quickly catapulted her new position as the committee’s whip and Chairman’s liaison. She moved from “whipping votes” to being responsible for keeping Members of Congress, their staff, the House Floor and Senate, abreast of all current and pending committee legislation. In this position, Emily’s ability to write was integral to her success. Most importantly, this role served as the catalyst to her penchant for communications, especially in a fast-paced, challenging environment.
Subsequently, back in NYC, she became the director of investor relations and communications at a tech-centric long-short hedge fund. Soon thereafter, Snowden Lane Partners, a hybrid registered investment advisory firm (RIA), invited her to direct that firm’s integrated communication initiatives and public relations efforts. In her new position she provided strategic, corporate communications counsel to the CEO and senior partners.
She moved to PPMG, specifically to join a team of fiercely driven people like herself, who believe there is something incredibly gratifying about being creative, inventive, single-minded client-driven and committed to making a difference.
Emily graduated from Philips Academy Andover before heading out west to attend the University of California, Berkeley, where she received a BA in Political Science and History.
