About the speaker

Elisabeth Edelman - Vice President of Branding & Communications @ Ledbury

Elisabeth graduated from the University of Richmond in 2005 with a triple major in journalism, French and Spanish. Her passions and priorities set her course, and has led her down an eleven year journey in public relations, working in both New York City and Richmond. In addition to her work as a public relations professional, Elisabeth enjoys writing fiction books on the side with the hopes of one day getting published (We know she’ll get there, and we’ll be first in line when she does).

During her time in New York City, she worked on consumer, luxury and celebrity public relations and events, which is basically saying that she has done it all in the world of PR. She’s played bouncer at Virgin Mobile’s MTV VMA after party, awkwardly coached Katie Couric on her lines as a charity event emcee, worked on eight seasons of New York Fashion Week and fibbed to clients about her age when she started a PR firm at 24.

Elisabeth now handles public relations, events and partnerships at luxury menswear brand Ledbury. She has literally shed blood, sweat and tears to help build the company. She happily says that she is having the time of her life helping to build the Ledbury brand. She uses her unique talents to foster new relationships and follows her gut to meet the “right” people who will understand their passion for Ledbury and then in turn share the Ledbury story with their audience - whether that audience is their office or the TODAY Show (maybe she’ll tell us more about this).
