Lindsey Brown launched Lindsey Brown Public Relations in 2016 to utilize her knowledge and experience to promote businesses that share her business philosophy of hard work and innovation…
Prior to starting her firm, she was the public relations and events director for Clumsy Butcher, a restaurant and bar collective in Houston. Clumsy Butcher has not been short on stories to tell, and during her time on staff, Brown worked with a wide range of top-tier media outlets to tell those stories.
Prior to joining Clumsy Butcher, Brown was the director of marketing and public relations for the Greater Houston Convention and Visitors Bureau for 10 years. She launched the Where the Chefs Eat Houston Culinary Tours program—winner of the Public Relations Society of America’s Silver Anvil Award in 2011—and worked with local, regional and national media to further Houston’s reputation as a tourist destination.
She also helped build the award-winning “My Houston” print and TV campaign featuring celebrities such as Beyonce, ZZ Top, Jim Parsons and Lyle Lovett, as well as the “Houston is…” advertising and marketing campaign that continues to appear in various publications including The New York Times and on billboards in George Bush Intercontinental Airport. She was a key player in the redesign of VisitHouston.com, the official tourism website of the city.
A tireless promoter of the city, as she helped bolster Houston’s reputation as a culinary destination over those years, Brown’s interest and passion for the food and beverage industry grew exponentially. She joined Clumsy Butcher in 2013 to merge that interest with her enthusiasm for communicating the group’s specialized vision to the public on a national scale. Truly believing in the product and clients you pitch is important, according to Brown.
Brown graduated from the University of Texas at Austin with a degree in public relations. She began her career at Vollmer Public Relations in both the company’s Dallas and Houston offices. She also served as the special projects coordinator for the Houston Ballet Academy; a trained ballerina through age 18, Brown later would go on to co-found the Houston Ballet’s young professionals group, Ballet Barre, which has more than 200 members in its sixth year. She continues to support the organization as a member of the Board of Trustees, and also is a Hermann Park Conservancy Advisory Board Member. She co-founded Southern Smoke, a food festival benefiting the MS Society, in 2015.
In her spare time, Brown enjoys traveling and spending time with her family and friends, frequenting the city’s wealth of wonderful restaurants and bars.
