Ellie (Gray) Somerville McNevin started her career in publishing, working in New York as an editor for top national titles, such as Architectural Digest, Luxe Interiors + Design, Elle Decor, House Beautiful and Veranda.
During her time at these magazines she developed lifetime relationships with other editors, and worked collaboratively with her peers on the ever-changing brand positioning of print media in a digital landscape. She represented the publications at events and photo shoots around the world, from London to Geneva, and everywhere in between.
Since starting Gray & Co., McNevin has used her editorial background and contacts to help clients ranging from fashion and interior designers to nationally recognized retailers and artists navigate the world of public relations. With placements in the LA Times, Wall Street Journal, Town & Country, and Vogue among others, McNevin sets the bar high for her lifestyle industry clients, helping them grow their businesses, establish brand recognition and reach a global audience.
Although McNevin travels to New York often for editor meetings and press appointments, she left the city in 2014 to open the doors to Gray & Co., based in Richmond, Virginia. She works with clients from all over the country, and is available to travel for client meetings.
