Long before she was hailed by Forbes as the founder “changing the influencer marketing platform between celebrities and startups,” Denise Lambertson was leading the industry in brand partnerships and celebrity integrations. For over 10 years, Denise has relied on her acute business acumen and infallible intuition to build partnerships based on shared values, interpersonal chemistry, and complementary skill sets. Denise looks at partnerships as more than just business relationships, and her approach mirrors that of a matchmaker or recruiter rather than simply a facilitator – taking the time and consideration to find the right fit for both parties.
Denise began her career as Madonna’s executive assistant, learning the art of celebrity partnership and making valuable connections in the entertainment industry. In 2009, Denise founded LMS, a boutique agency that focuses on influencer and social media marketing solutions for growth-stage and emerging brands. As founder of LMS, Denise has pioneered various forms of partnership including; building a brand around a celebrity founder or co-founder (ex. Sofia Vergara + EBY), C-suite Talent integration into existing brands (Karlie Kloss + Bubble), Talent investment with advisor services (Serena Williams and Gwyneth Paltrow + Daily Harvest), Talent investment with marketing services (Halsey + High Brew Coffee), and marketing services for sweat equity or revenue share (Ellie Goulding + CORE Water).
LMS is an influencer and social media agency that champions incredible brands through innovative consumer focused marketing services.
