About Lydia

Lydia Martinez is the founder and CEO of Elle Marketing and Events. An entrepreneur at heart, Lydia started her first business at eight years old, selling tree-climbing lessons to neighborhood kids. After tackling over 11 years in strategic marketing, branding, social media, and event planning for powerhouse retailers Barnes & Noble and Whole Foods Market, Lydia decided to get back to her entrepreneurial roots. Lydia launched what was to become Elle Marketing 2009 purely as a consulting business on the side. However, in 2015 she left her corporate career to become a full-time entrepreneur. Since 2015, Elle Marketing has grown into a full-service creative marketing agency with a team of 25. While she now prefers to climb cliffs in her spare time, you may still find her willing to show you how to climb a tree.

“When I started my business, I was fortunate to have some amazing people supporting me – from mentors, coaches, fellow entrepreneurs, and clients. All of whom helped me when I was new at this gig. I understood marketing, but I didn’t know how to be a business owner. They helped me through the crazy ups and downs, and their generosity is literally why I’m in business today. I love this entrepreneurial community, and it only makes sense to pay it forward now!”

Elle Marketing and Events

At Elle Marketing and Events, we believe every business has a story. Our boutique marketing agency was founded to offer other creative companies dynamic ways to tell their brand story. To do this, we have an established, results-driven team of storytellers and a culture that supports our team so that they can show exceptional ingenuity and service to our clients.
