Emily Embury

Senior Partner

Professional Experience

I have more than two decades of B2B experience in education. From public relations outreach to content marketing campaigns, I’ve counseled national and international brands – Blackboard, Dremel, Shutterfly and Discovery Education to name a few – on how to build awareness, establish thought leadership and generate demand from K-12 and higher education institutions. The world of education is always changing, and I appreciate the variety and fast pace of agency life—which is why I remain captivated by this purpose-driven work. Prior to joining FINN Partners, I managed the education marketing communications agency CB&A, where I was responsible for client acquisition and retention, staff management and development, and business administration.

When you learn, teach. When you get, give.

How'd you get here?

Mission-driven work has always been my driving force. From improving women’s health to providing humanitarian support, using my marketing communication skills to effect change in my community is how I began my career. Afterwards, I spent 20 years at an education marketing agency where I partnered with clients to make a difference in the lives of students, educators and communities nationwide. Joining FINN Partners and collaborating with the agency’s global Education, Technology and CSR practice groups offers an opportunity to expand the impact and reach of these efforts, in a values-driven culture with a shared focus on creating a more equitable world.
