WHAT WE'RE ABOUT
Satellite Brand Strategies is a consultancy that offers a highly personalized approach. When working closely with a client, we first take inventory of all of key assets, then draw upon those assets to strategically map out a tailor-made campaign that makes effective use of a client's unique strengths, industry insights, and core values. We also seamlessly fold into agency teams to oversee account management and layer into media outreach.
Think of us as your satellite team member tending to any communications and marketing requests. As your liaison, our goal is to effectively execute your needs using authenticity, creative thinking, key media relationships, and pop culture insights.
After graduating from Tulane University with a B.A. in Communications, Jill Ormand began her career in the beauty division of Alison Brod Marketing and Communications. During her two years there, under the tutelage of Brod and other industry veterans, she honed her media skills and began to embrace the expanding definition of public relations, as it was during this time that the rise of the blogger began and organic celebrity endorsements became a lucrative commodity. From there Ormand moved in-house to Aveda and was involved in the Aveda Walk for Water Earth Day initiative, backstage sponsorships at Mercedes Benz New York Fashion Week, and Fashion’s Night Out. When the opportunity arose to join the Entertainment and Brand Strategies team at ID, Ormand jumped at the chance to shift into an exciting new role where no two clients were the same. For five years, she worked on a wide array of clientele and becoming a generalist, tackling strategy and execution for book releases, regional and national outreach for large non-profits, celebrity brand ambassadorships, the world of gaming, tech start-ups, fashion collection and beauty product launches, red carpet events, and much more. Following time at Netflix exploring the developing landscape of streaming television, Ormand started Satellite Brand Strategies in July 2016.
