“My team is made up of some seriously smart, hilarious, thoughtful women. Having an opportunity to work with such a diverse and yet synchronized team has been one of the greatest joys of my career.” -Kate Bailey
Kate Bailey founded Annabel Media (named for her grandmother), with the sole mission of taking the complex ecosystem of marketing, digital, and public relations, and rolling it into one cohesive art form so her clients could spend less time managing disparate agencies, and more time focusing on what’s important: Their business.
Flash forward to today, and Kate is now at the helm of an eclectic team of 7, driven by strategy and logic, with a heavy dose of good fun. As one of the only communications agencies in the US that focuses primarily on the luxury design industry, Annabel Media brings an unprecedented amount of expertise to the table, including Kate’s 16 year tenure as a luxury lifestyle magazine editor.
Our dynamic combination of content, social, web development, advertising and marketing efforts have provided our clients with an agile platform from which to share their story with the world.
We are Annabel Media, and we are here to change the way communications is done. How?
