Chris Marlowe is a communications professional, editor, journalist, public speaker and pop culture junkie with years of success in developing engaging feature articles, news stories, personality profiles, business insights and other content in both the digital media and entertainment industries.
She supports Edelman's clients by putting context around their business, evaluating the meaning and implications of news developments, researching the landscape and competition, and providing her findings in usable ways. Marlowe also provides media training and guidance.
During her career she has interviewed the CEOs and other key people at Microsoft, Yahoo!, AOL, HP and Intel, filmmakers like John Waters, Kevin Spacey, Danny DeVito, Morgan Freeman and Guillermo del Toro, and countless household name musicians like Phil Collins, Aerosmith, Ice-T, Elton John, Jimmy Page and Tina Turner.
Marlowe joined Edelman having been director of media relations at Sony Pictures Digital, where among the movies she worked on were the international blockbuster Spider-Man 3, Beowulf, Ghost Rider and Surf's Up (which was nominated for an Academy Award as best animated feature).
Before Sony she was editorial director for The Hollywood Reporter, in which role Marlowe introduced and spearheaded all reporting on mobile media, Internet delivery systems, video gaming and other emerging platforms. This expansion of the paper's coverage increased the brand's visibility and prestige, with a resulting growth in advertising and sponsorship that continued until her departure.
Marlowe began her career as a trade and consumer music reporter for a library of publications that include Mojo, .Net, Music & Media, Metal Hammer, Country Music International, Rock Power and many others, in addition to writing liner notes and official biographies for musicians and labels.
