Jeff Lambert founded Lambert, Edwards & Associates in 1998 and has helped build it into one of the largest independent public relations and investor relations firms in the region. As president and managing partner, Lambert is responsible for the day-to-day operations and the long-term strategic vision of the firm. He also leads the account teams on several of the company’s largest publicly traded and privately held clients.

The firm has posted eight consecutive years of record sales and continued earnings growth.

Lambert added M&A to his resume in 2005 with the acquisition of a competitor in the market, Straightline Public Relations, which when combined with 25 percent organic growth that year, rocketed LE&A into the No. 1 spot in the market and the Top 10 rankings for the Midwest region.

Lambert’s approach to work and commitment to management teams versus marketing departments have been key strategic advantages in the PR consulting world. The firm’s approach has resulted in unique depth of client service resources, strong referrals among CEO peers and a host of new business service lines.

In the last three years alone, Lambert has led the product licensing efforts for a major motion picture, started a church finance company, coached a management team through an IPO, recruited a board member for a publicly traded client and secured a book deal as agent for an up-and-coming artist and author. These activities are the basis for LE&A’s business-oriented approach and key points of differentiation.
