Beatrice Kimmel- President
Beatrice has worked as a marketing professional since 2003, after graduating from New York University with her MA in Performing Arts Administration. Holding two BA degrees - one in English & Creative Writing and the other in Piano Performance - entertainment publicity was a natural draw. Beatrice broke into music publicity in 2007, starting her firm Absolute Pitch PR in NYC where she worked with hundreds of emerging musicians as well as top label artists, including Michael Buble, Josh Kelley, Joshua Radin and Wilson Phillips. She later joined the company that is now Gramophone Media, Inc. where she started her own division of entertainment and lifestyle marketing, which is now EMPKT PR. She expanded her company’s clientele to include Toyota, WorldWater & Solar Technologies Inc., Serafina, Sheila Kelley S Factor, Sweat-Yoga among others. When she’s not helping brands grow, Beatrice enjoys a lifestyle of fitness, music and the beach with her husband, David, in Long Beach, NY.
