Samantha Harris founded 37 Essex in 2012, her unique point of view and journalistic approach has defined 37 Essex's strategic and creative process. Her diverse client roster includes Fortune 500 companies, consumer good brands, nonprofits, spirits, early stage ventures, tech companies and wellness brands.
After graduating from Northeastern University with a BS in Political Science and a minor in Journalism, Samantha spent her early career working in marketing for brands such as, Howard Stern, Jive Records, Kanye West, Nike and The Fader Magazine.
An early adopter, she started a news blog in 2004, Politics As Usual. The success of her news blog led to a job offer at CNN in 2007 working on The Situation Room with Wolf Blitzer, The Political Unit and The Cafferty File, covering the 2008 election, politics and breaking news. She left CNN to join the Associated Press as a reporter and field producer where she covered breaking news, financial markets, politics, science and tech.
While working for the Associated Press, Samantha was introduced to the founder of a global, not-for profit, start-up, focused on saving the oceans, protecting marine life and changing international legislation. Knowing where she could add value to the project, she left AP and was brought on as Brand Director. Here, she defined end-to-end brand and creative strategy from inception to launch. She assembled strategic partnerships with Google, The Smithsonian, United Nations, World Bank and National Geographic, growing the platform to over 1.5M subscribers in under a year.
This opportunity changed the course of her career bringing her passion for storytelling, production and marketing together, leading her to launch of 37 Essex.
