As the late, great Yogi Berra once famously said, “When you come to a fork in the road, take it.”

After 23 years of leading and building Peppercomm into one of the industry’s most trusted communications firms, that’s exactly what Ed did. In response to the transformative changes sweeping across the marketing and communications fields, Ed launched Hot Paper Lantern in 2018, a consultancy that fuses marketing and communications with business consulting and technology solutions to help brands thrive in a digital economy.

At HPL, Ed is responsible for overall agency leadership. He leads the firm’s business strategy and provides overall direction to operations, finances, new services development, client service, new business and overall agency strategy.

Throughout his career, Ed has been recognized as an industry leader; he was named to B2B Magazine’s Who’s Who list and was a finalist for EY’s prestigious Entrepreneur of the Year award.

He currently serves as a trustee for Drew University, and has played board and advisory roles with numerous organizations including the Council of PR Firms, YJP, the Montclair Art Museum, Little Kids Rock and MyGoodDeed.org.
