Ann Barlow

Partner & President, West Coast | Managing Director, Creative-Digital

I’m an optimist, advocate and Californian at heart — though I was raised in Iowa and am a devoted Yankees fan.

Ann helps set agency direction, grow the business, create new offerings, service clients and manage teams. In 2013, she became managing director for Peppercomm’s Creative-Digital group. Ann has worked with B2B and B2C companies across several industries; those companies include Panasonic, Wells Fargo, Wilbur-Ellis, and Stion Solar. She has advocated for clients’ positions with consumers, NGOs, business communities and the government. Ann serves on the board of Watermark, a leading nonprofit for women executive advancement, and is a board member of the University of Illinois West. She has been named one of the 100 Most Influential Women in the Bay Area, PR Professional of the Year by PR News, and Watermark’s Women Who Have Made Their Mark.
