Emily Pfiester

Marketing & communications 

Specialises in: getting the word out on Namahn 

Emily studied International Affairs at the University of Colorado in Boulder where she first piqued her interest in travel and multi-cultural environments. Post-graduate studies brought her to Italy where she completed an international master’s degree at the Universita’ di Bologna with study in Nancy, France at the ICN Business School as well as in Moscow at MGIMO University.  

Emily’s professional experience in communications started at the global advertising agency Leo Burnett based in Turin, Italy working on international Jeep campaigns. She then switched to the client side and stayed for a total of seven years in the automotive industry, working for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles and developing communications campaigns for the Jeep and Fiat brands, as well as managing cross-brand communications strategies. 

Relocating to Brussels and looking for a new challenge, Emily joined Namahn given the opportunity to create their communications strategy from scratch and immerse herself in a new field, that of design thinking. 

All of that time spent in Italy only accentuated Emily’s love of food, both eating and cooking. She enjoys making meals for friends and discovering new wines and recipes. A true Colorado girl, Emily relishes snowboarding in the wintertime and hiking in the summer.
