The Daily spoke to Jeremy Murphy, founder and CEO of 360Bespoke, ahead of this major milestone!
Congratulations on five years! What are your proudest moments since 360Bespoke was launched? There are many! First, it’s incredibly rewarding to have a business survive five years, even a pandemic. Cathie Black, former chairwoman at Hearst Magazines was also an honor to host my event. “coming out party”In her Park Avenue home, she hosted us. We’ve done great work for clients since, including helping to launch Rinna Beauty with Lisa Rinna; debuting Charlie Siem’s album and concerts; promoting fragrance expert Sue Phillip’s work in helping COVID victims regain their sense of smell; working with Stewart Pearce, Princess Diana’s secret voice coach, on his new book “Diana The Voice of Change.”I was also touched by the outpourings in support and congratulatory messages for our anniversary of five years. I had hoped to host a big party, but with the pandemic, it was not possible. Friends of our brand sent their congratulations via video to Jim Brolin, Andrew Cooper and Eric Rutherford.
Who are some of your current customers? Charlie Siem, a violinist, is our client. Garrett Neff and I have just teamed up to promote Katama Lifestyle brand. Rinna Beauty, a beautiful, inclusive cosmetics company whose products are approved and tested by Lisa personally, is promoted. We are still working alongside Go Dash Dot – a brand that makes stylish, accessible bags, started by Hannah Fastov – and they celebrate their five year anniversary. Jeff Leatham (the celebrity florist/artistic Director) is still one of our most trusted talents, as well as Iestyn Davis, the opera singer. Carey Macaleer founded Aline Pilates in Brooklyn, a boutique Pilates studio that is very popular with celebrities and media. We are now working with Nylo. “life oasis”TriBeca.
Each agency brings something different to the table. What are you bringing? We’re small and nimble enough to offer personalized, white glove treatment. We can also pivot quickly, jumping on the latest trends, news headlines, and other relevant events. Our clients trust us. We do what we do. Every client gets me, day and night but I don’t do GoogleDoc-DropBox-Shared-Drive-Excel Tracker nonsense. I’d rather get press for my clients than update color coded Excel sheets.
Tell us the story behind the name…I wanted Bespoken PR, but that was taken. Joe Wilson, my long-time colleague, suggested 360bespoke. It encompasses everything: We offer a full range of PR needs that are personally tailored to you.
What’s next for you? Thankfully, the economy has rebounded after the worst of this pandemic. We are adding categories to fashion and lifestyle. Personaly, I have a humor-based book called “F*ck Off, Chloe: Surviving the OMGs and FMLs in Your Media Career,”This perfectly captures my sarcasm, views of media, wokeism, overly-officious young people, and those shared Google Docs which I loathe. It’s being published by Skyhorse and is already available for pre-sale on Amazon.
