Debra Jack


I'm an executive vice president at Edelman, the world's largest public relations firm. I run the Corporate, Crisis and CSR practices for the San Francisco office.

I have nearly 20 years experience leading public engagement and reputation management programs for companies and organizations of all sizes. A lot of my work is in the areas of messaging and positioning, media relations, stakeholder relations and crisis preparedness/management.

I love to design and execute integrated programs that rally employees, build brand awareness, strengthen reputation, mitigate risk and maximize stakeholder relationships. My clients have included many leading Bay Area consumer brands and non profits, such as The North Face, Shutterfly, Charles Schwab, Gap, Levi's, SF SPCA and 24 Hour Fitness.

I try to be as involved as much as I can in my community, and to that end I'm a hardworking board member of Young Audiences of Northern California and a longtime, loyal supporter of Creativity Explored and Juma.


We can only do what we do because of organisations and individuals who support our work.
Thank you everyone.
