President Rebecca Brooks founded The Brooks Group in NYC at the age of 25 and gained recognition early on in her career for her ability to identify and nurture raw talent, creating thoughtful, highly effective and strategic communications campaigns with passion and a personal touch. Since that time, she has built an agency that has become synonymous with the promotion and development of some of today’s most successful lifestyle personalities and brands.
For more than 25 years, Rebecca and her team shared the stories of an inspiring corps of innovative entrepreneurs and their brands, transporting them to national prominence. When Rebecca began working with Rachael Ray, an emerging talent with great potential, she expanded the agency’s practice from beauty and fitness to a lifestyle roster including hospitality, food and travel. Rebecca worked with Rachael for four years and was instrumental building her brand leading up to her national daytime talk show. Longstanding client relationships with incredible personalities including Guy Fieri, Andrew Zimmern, Jacques Torres, Samantha Brown, Adam Richman, Buddy Valastro, Karen Akunowicz, Ingrid Hoffmann, Cat Cora, social media guru Gary Vaynerchuk and others followed.
Rebecca, who is also a Reiki Master and a consummate student of mindfulness, is especially interested in working with spiritually curious leaders who are accustomed to working at an incredibly fast pace and are ready to bring a mindful purposeful approach to their life and career.
Away from the office, Rebecca can be found cheering from the stands at her sons and husband’s soccer matches across the globe, Icelandic strong man training, practicing yoga, hiking, traveling and relaxing and cooking with her friends and family.
