Born and raised in metro Detroit, Lisa is a lover of all things Michigan. Like many Michigan natives, Lisa’s family has been affiliated with the automotive industry for generations and she has continued carrying the torch by serving automotive clients from across the globe throughout her career.
Throughout her time with MBE Group, Lisa has led media relations, branding, social media, event coordination and crisis communications activities for companies ranging from start-ups to multi-billion-dollar global organizations. Internally, Gill helped lead the company’s drive to define and support its culture and served as a mentor to teammates, following the 2019 merger that formed MBE Group.
Prior to joining MBE Group, she handled media relations, social media and content creation for a client in the motorsports industry, enabling her to get up close and personal, traveling to tracks across the country. She also spent seven years in Lansing, Michigan, working with grassroots campaigns and nonprofit organizations, including the Campaign for Smokefree Air, a campaign that pushed to make Michigan a smoke-free state. Early in her career, she supported media-relations activities for the thousands of media attendees from around the world at the North American International Auto Show and traveled to auto shows across the country in support of various clients.
In 2021, she was nominated as one of the inaugural participants in the first-ever IPREX Academy (www.iprex.com), where fast-rising members of partner agencies receive cross-training in the wider aspects of agency management and leadership.
Lisa graduated from Eastern Michigan University with a bachelor’s degree in public relations.
When she’s not in front of her computer, you will find Lisa at Aberrant Ales, the brewery she and her husband own in downtown Howell, Michigan, or at the running track cheering on her two daughters.
