Gita McCutcheon, a seasoned public relations and marketing professional, founded Gita Group in January 2006 and has since pioneered countless successful PR, marketing and digital campaigns for a wide range of brands that span from luxury to mass-appeal.

Combining her expertise in branding, public relations, marketing and social media Gita develops campaigns that are specifically curated around the needs and goals of her clients. She has a proven method of execution that incorporates the type of personalized, hands-on and transparent experience clients would have with an in-house marketing team. Coupled with her preference to keep her roster selective so that she can continue to be hands-on with each client, this approach has created and maintained successful and flourishing relationships with her long-term clients.

Gita has taken innumerable brands from concept to market/success, in addition to rebranding or spearheading expansion for existing brands, by helping to think through all phases of their businesses to create innovative campaigns that are heard and seen by their target audience.

With the experience gained on successful publicity campaigns, she had amassed strong media and industry relationships when she founded Gita Group.
