Our Team

Firebrand provides unique access to desirable and hard-to-reach markets. From regional publications rife with lifestyle content and community news that reach the most active consumers in two of the wealthiest cities in Southern California to highly targeted luxury hospitality publications that engage savvy travelers, our publications inspire consumers who have substantial purchasing power and are motivated to spend on luxury goods, retail, services, and entertainment.

Marketers have the opportunity to connect and engage with these valuable customers through our magazines, web sites, social channels, events and custom publishing.
