Chelsey Lutz Kirby

Senior Director

With a background steeped in global and luxury hospitality PR, Chelsey lends a sophisticated worldview and hit-the-ground running verve to every account.

Her premier JPR clients include Relais & Chateaux, Bobby Hotel, InterContinental Washington, D.C. - The Wharf, Renaissance New York Midtown and Visit North Carolina.

Chelsey has an especially rich history in messaging and is a skillful storyteller. For the New Orleans Convention and Visitors Bureau, she spearheaded a campaign to showcase the city, reinvigorated and reborn after the fifth anniversary of the ravaging Katrina hurricane. Considering the event coincided with the BP oil spill, Chelsey juggled crisis control while still showing the world the city’s massive recovery. For The Quirk Hotel in Richmond, Virginia, a boutique hotel inspired by a local art gallery, Chelsey threaded the narrative of how the property single-handedly catapulted the’s cultural revival. On the luxury front, she helped lead the Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group’s campaign to establish its pillars of perfectionism that landed it in the upper echelon of hospitality where it remains today.

Her efforts have garnered national media placements and her clients have achieved international acclaim including Travel + Leisure’s World’s Best Awards, Departures 100, and Conde Nast Traveler’s coveted Hot List.
