James BeardSusan Bang PR is well versed in the culinary and hospitality world with international experience in promoting top chefs, restaurants and hotels. I was fortunate to have spent over a decade as a committee member of the James Beard Foundation during its formative years, identifying and grooming Aubergethe next generation of culinary stars. It was rewarding to bring the haute cuisine of prominent hotel chefs to a new level of acceptance and acclaim.

Over the years, I have represented some of the world’s great hotels with sophistication and flair. I created attention and sustained recognition in the marketplace on behalf of both hospitality groups (Orient Express Hotels and Mandarin Oriental Hotel Group) and unique boutique properties (Auberge du Soleil and San Ysidro Ranch in the U.S., Hotel Hassler in Rome). Working with such stellar clients over the years, I have built solid relationships with food and travel writers on behalf of luxury properties worldwide.
