Emily Barlean is an enthusiastic marketing and communications leader with excellent verbal and written communications skills and the ability to interpret and accentuate a message in a variety of creative ways. She is an organized, big picture thinker with the ability to plan projects from start to finish while maintaining minute attention to detail. Emily is very productive under pressure and able to work independently and manage multiple projects simultaneously in a fast-paced, deadline-driven environment.

“It is not often that one is able to come in contact with individuals that seem to possess the full spectrum of qualities needed to be a stunning success in any environment and on any team they may be a part of. However, what I have seen, heard and experienced firsthand of Emily Barlean is a stark representation that these sorts of dynamic professionals do exist, and are worth actively pursuing.”

“Having the opportunity to hire Emily directly out of her undergraduate experience was a true gift. Talented, poised, and most importantly ready to dive in and to hone her craft, Emily added much to our publicity team at CPH. In the years since, I have watched as Emily has managed her career with energy and excellence. (And have tried to lure her away on more than one occasion!) She contributes much through her skill set and competency, but also through her high EQ. Competency and capacity, team and task focused, high action and high relationship – Emily is truly a gifted communicator.”
