Brown Public Relations is led by Eddie Brown, principal and owner. Eddie received a bachelor’s degree in mass communications (public relations) and minor in international marketing from Jackson State University in Jackson, Mississippi.
For the past 11 years, Eddie has drawn on a diverse public relations background to effectively counsel clients and execute key messages to the public via traditional and non-traditional media. He has proven success in media relations, executing non-profit and corporate communications campaigns and developing effective strategies and plans for budget-conscious clients. Having worked with media representatives and journalists across the nation, Eddie does not consider public relations a profession – but one of his talents.
Recently, Eddie was recognized by the Louisiana Public Relations Society for executing an awareness campaign on behalf of a non-profit organization in Louisiana.

He has served on the public relations staff at the nation’s first medical mall; developed, communicated and enforced company policies as the human resources and internal communications coordinator for an automotive manufacturer and Nissan supplier; and served as public relations staff member at Jackson State University, Mississippi’s fourth largest public university. Eddie also served as director of public relations for a full-service company in New Orleans which handled marketing, advertising, TV/film production services for clients throughout the United States including Northrop Grumman Ship Building Systems, nationally recognized 9th Ward Field of Dreams, and the Louisiana Department of Highway Safety.
In addition to hosting and co-hosting local radio and television shows, Eddie has worked in non-profit and religious organizations such as the Metroplex Economic Development Corporation and T.D. Jakes Enterprises in Dallas, Texas. He has also had the opportunity to serve as public relations coordinator for the national convention of the Church of Christ (Holiness) U.S.A. and Media Liaison for the Promise Keepers Men Conference.
