Lisa Endicott is the owner and president of Endicott & Company Public Relations.  Endicott & Company specializes in corporate communications, media relations, marketing and branding strategy, and event publicity for entertainment, financial, technology, hospitality and travel, nonprofit, real estate, and retail clients.  Endicott served as senior account supervisor and senior vice president-director of strategic communications of Brinker Communications and Levenson and Brinker Public Relations for more than three years.

Previously, Ms. Endicott founded L. A. Entertainment and Six Degrees Records in 1996.  She served as president and provided media relations, corporate communications, crisis management, and special event production for businesses in the high tech, film and video, music, hospitality, fashion, and nonprofit arenas.

What people may not know is that Endicott’s own brand of “Intuitive Public Relations” and philosophy of making business entertaining started while she was promoting, booking and representing popular Dallas crooner Hunter Sullivan and helped launch him from his nightly gig at Sipango to becoming a household name in magazines and newspapers, onto a successful recording and touring career with Harry Connick Jr., Hugo Boss, and Chuck Norris, and made him one of the most popular jazz entertainers in Dallas to date.

Endicott co-produced singer-songwriter WT Greer’s latest CD Not in a Hurry with Lyle Walker of Seven Star Entertainment and has been a staunch supporter of his talents since becoming friends with him and his family when he was at The Warwick Melrose Hotel.  Many of the events on the social calendar over the past 16 years would not have been as successful or memorable without Endicott providing the right mix of publicity and musical/artistic complement to mark the occasion.

She continues to seek out those talents in music and the business world, put them on the radar and help them turn their passions into profit.

Since then, mostly on the basis of repeat business and referrals, she has been requested to give the “rock star” treatment to more than 50 major local, regional and national events for companies and organizations including, but not limited to, the following: PepsiCo; FOX Television; Hugo Boss; USO; Wounded Warrior Project; NFL Live Auction at Super Bowl XLVI for United Way and NFL Players Charities; USTA; Clear Channel Radio; Shape Up USA; Children’s Medical Center; Dallas Cowboys Kickoff Luncheons; Bryan’s House; OPEN: The Small Business Network of American Express; The Academy of Country Music; Texas Scottish Rite Hospital; CASA; Geoffrey Beene; The United Way; and many other annual events such as the 30th Anniversary Dallas International Guitar Festival and the 2004 North Texas Jazz Festival.

Those events have featured public figures and celebrities such as Troy Aikman, Chuck Norris, Roger Staubach, Tom Landry, Phylicia Rashad, Gene Simmons, Harry Connick Jr., Norman Brinker, Dr. Kenneth Cooper, Kevin Costner, Star Chef Dean Fearing, Erykah Badu, Randy Travis, John Popper, Sheree Wilson, Mike Modano, LeAnn Rimes, Bryan White, ESPN/ABC’s Mike Tirico, FOX News Channel’s Bill Hemmer, Ray Crockett, Phil Mickelson, Mike Weir, Fastball, Tommy Armour III, D.B. Sweeney, Chris Madden, Kristian Alfonso, Collin Raye, Lance Burton, Jo Dee Messina, Barry Tubb, Janine Turner, Cindy Blackman, Jacques Villeneuve, Nancy Lieberman, The Neville Brothers, The Smithereens, Tony Dorsett, Barry Corbin, Blues Traveler, and many more.

Ms. Endicott brings more than 19 years experience in journalism and public relations.  She is a graduate of The University of Texas at Austin with a bachelor of journalism degree.  She wrote, reported, anchored, and produced news, sports and weather for print, radio, and television for three years both in Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, and as a stringer nationwide and in Canada for CFAN.  In that capacity, she covered city and state news, entertainment, collegiate sports, the Dallas Cowboys and the NFL, and the PGA.  She is proud to have been one of only three female reporters covering male professional sports in the early to mid ‘90s of the major sports franchises in Texas, including three of the Dallas Cowboys’ Super Bowl-winning seasons.
