ED HARRISON

SENIOR VICE PRESIDENT

Some might call Ed Harrison an industry veteran, but that’s simply fancy talk for experienced (or polite talk for “aging”) professional. With a passion for writing (and an impulsive yen for copy editing), managing and mentoring, he leads the agency’s East Coast B2B technology staff, while servicing accounts and developing new business opportunities. His love of writing maps to InkHouse’s “content-first” approach to integrated public relations.

In his career, Ed has led PR programs for enterprise technology companies of all sizes, across all markets and technologies, including data management; machine learning; cloud infrastructure software and services; CRM and marketing technology; and database and application development.

Ed joined InkHouse in 2016 after 13 years as a managing partner with Boston-based fama PR, a boutique technology PR firm. Ed previously held senior positions with Davies ­Murphy Group (now LEWIS) and Schwartz Communications (now MSLGroup). He also developed a PR and content marketing consultancy as a sole practitioner.

Ed grew up in Central Massachusetts and graduated from The George Washington University with a degree in marketing and economics. He spent four years at Disabled Sports USA, an NGO for athletes with physical disabilities. There, he first realized the power of technology to further public relations in 1994, purchasing a state-of-the art 1,400 baud fax modem to send press releases. He later worked with the USOC media team at the 1996 Atlanta Paralympics.

He lives in West Newton with his wife and two boys, and is an insufferable snob about coffee and vinyl records.
