I have enjoyed a diverse career in public relations and marketing working with Michigan's leading agencies and some of the world's most recognized brands.
In September 2013 after many years working for others, I followed my dream of business ownership and founded a full-service integrated marketing communications firm, Gayle Joseph Group.
Previously, as a member of the leadership team at Grand Rapids-based Lambert, Edwards & Associates (LE&A), I was responsible for operations of our Detroit office, as well as business growth throughout the US. I also lead the firm's automotive practice.
Before joining LE&A, I was a vice president at Airfoil Public Relations leading
the entire range of the agency’s work for the the third largest company
in the world, Microsoft Corporation. My work for Microsoft included
developing strategies for programs and overseeing implementation of
public relations activities – including product, issue and
solution-centric campaigns – across the United States.
In addition to Microsoft, I have worked with a number of other global brands including Sprint, General Motors, General Electric, Starbucks, Kmart, The Home Depot, and Guardian Industries, as well as regional and Michigan-based organizations, including The Taubman Companies, St. John Health, the Detroit Medical Center and Walsh College.
