Stefan Embry

VP, Brand Allyship


New York

Stefan Embry is an eleven year industry veteran, wearing many hats throughout his tenure across the travel, beauty, tech, and corp comms spaces with clients like Destination Canada, Under Armour, the Estée Lauder Companies, AT&T and Hyatt Hotels. He’s driven programs that push the boundaries of a traditional PR Agency - from experiential, to long form film, to broadcast spots.

Currently, Stefan leads PACT @ Praytell, a working group focused on helping brands find their voice in building a more equitable and diverse world through authentic community allyship. Previous work includes a feature length documentary exploring the trans experience with Showtime Networks, produced for M∙A∙C Cosmetics and strategic partnerships with organizations like Planned Parenthood and the National Society of Black Engineers.

After stints at VOX Global in Washington and FleishmanHillard in New York, he’s spent the past five and a half years at Praytell in Brooklyn and Austin, leading the launch of the agency’s Chicago office in between. During that time, Stefan’s worked to build diversity and inclusion into the core of both culture and business at the agency.
