“Edge Communications is a highly effective communications and strategy firm. Edge provides valuable guidance by proposing and executing ideas that not only enable clients to differentiate their products and services, but also their organization’s positioning in a sustainable and measurable way.”

“I came to trust them for their insight and judgment on all matters of our communications and reach.  Unlike other advisors who provided the same safe and proven strategies, Ilene and Vincent always presented an “edgy” idea which when dialed back became genius.”

“Vincent Park has unparalleled insight, creativity, strategic focus and passion for his work. He has an instinct for ‘what’s next’ in technology and business. And he’s a delight to work with, too.”

Michelle Horowitz

Senior Vice President, Marketing

LOFT and Lou & Grey

“I’ve had the pleasure of working with Vincent Park on several significant projects. He was the creative soul and visionary behind each one. Without his leadership, determination and persistence, we would not have been able to implement the business plan. He understands the commercial, technical and financial aspects of new initiatives and their interdependencies.”

Vinay Shah, Corporate CFO

Former Director of Finance, PR Newswire

“Even before social existed, the team at Edge Communications was effectively building communities around their clients. Crowd-sourced photography competitions and other creative methods to encourage engagement have been a mainstay for this agency for 10+ years. Vincent wore the “futurist” hat and provided insights about online, mobile and social that contributed to the company’s growth while less innovative competitors faltered.”

“The strategic thinking Ilene brings to each program and project is consistently high, and her collaborative approach and friendly demeanor make her a pleasure to work with. Her ability to write beautifully about complex and esoteric topics is a gift. I trust her judgment and abilities.”
