Cotter, who splits time between the agency’s Los Angeles and San Diego locations, was most recently director of corporate and brand communication with Lucasfilm. She led the development of internal and external cross-company communications, including alignment for the Star Wars and Lucasfilm brands. Prior to Lucasfilm, Cotter worked at Fleishman-Hillard’s San Francisco office, as a PR manager at Old Navy and with Ketchum Entertainment Marketing in New York and Los Angeles.
“Emilie brings valuable experience in brand marketing and entertainment to both the agency and our region,” said Della Sweetman, senior partner and general manager of Fleishman-Hillard’s Southern California operations.
