Meet:

Ashley MontBlanc Day

Senior Vice President

Ashley has been with the agency for 14 years and recently moved to Chicago, affording LDPR the opportunity to launch an office in the Windy City.  Ashley networks with local and national media on behalf of all LDPR clients, and is our on-site manager for Chicago events and media tours. 

Since joining the agency in 2006, Ashley has worked her way up the ranks by dint of her sunny, can-do attitude, creative approach and outstanding media relations skills. Ashley’s diverse experience includes everything from PR efforts surrounding establishing a leading trend here in the US - “glamping” - at The Resort at Paws Up in Montana to multiple tourism events, strategic partnerships and media relations programs for the destinations of Scotland; Melbourne, Australia; Sydney, Australia; and Portland, Oregon. Additionally, she spearheaded the opening PR program for inspirational lifestyle and home décor brand Serena & Lily’s first Design Shop in Chicago. 

Ashley has had success with getting clients on top morning shows such as the "CBS This Morning” and NBC “Today Show.” Her relentless pursuit for stellar results for her clients has resulted in multiple placements in such leading publications as The New York Times, Travel + Leisure, The Wall Street Journal and Robb Report. Beyond media placements, Ashley has secured strategic partnerships for her clients including a collaboration with Vineyard Vines and Curtain Bluff in Antigua to launch a spring clothing line inspired by the resort and island.

Next on Vacation Bucket List: Topping the international bucket list is still a family trip to Scotland for some adventuring, eating and roots tracing. Other locations on our radar are New Orleans, Mexico and Hawaii (I mean, it never ends really…)

A favorite travel quote: “Travel changes you. As you move through this life and this world you change things slightly, you leave marks behind, however small. And in return, life—and travel—leaves marks on you.” – Anthony Bourdain

My favorite Holiday: I have always adored the 4th of July. I grew up on a lake and in lake life, the 4th feels like Christmas. It has a simplicity to it that I always loved - a day you spend with your family and friends enjoying being together, the outdoors and celebrating. A huge bonus is that our first kiddo was born on the 4th (I am convinced my love of the holiday had something to do with it)!

Client Testimonials

We started working with LDPR in January 2020. Even with such minimal start-up time, they rose to, or rather, went beyond, expectations in guiding us through these challenging times. We cannot imagine a better partner to weather the demands of this past year. Their knowledge, creativity and resilience, not to mention flexibility, is remarkable. The wins they were able to achieve for The Islands of Tahiti, even with border closures and stringent health protocols, are remarkable. LDPR has quickly become part of the Tahiti Tourisme family, and we look forward to a bright future and long-term collaboration.

LDPR has been terrific to work with; their team professional and personable allowing for a smooth working relationship. Their efforts have produced fruitful relationships with world-class writers and editors of major hospitality publications, which have led to fantastic coverage for us. LDPR’s strategic planning and flexibility to pivot as needed and provide inspirational social support have been instrumental as we navigate through the recent hospitality upheaval. Thank you to the team at LDPR for your partnership.

Every time they deliver we raise the bar, and every time we raise the bar they manage to deliver. I cannot recommend them highly enough to any luxury hotel looking for world-class public relations representation.

Our goal in using LDPR as our New York-based national PR agency was to expand our reach and frequency in luxury lifestyle media and launch a new product line, Extreme Adventures. Impressions in 2008 tripled with placements in the New York Times, Departures, Travel + Leisure, National Geographic Adventure, Elite Traveler, Men’s Journal, Vogue, InStyle and emerging social media such as Globarati, Gadling and Paradizo.

The speed, enthusiasm, creativity and attention to detail that LDPR puts into everything they do is evidenced in the amount and quality of press coverage generated for our Aman properties. Their network of contacts is vast and they have a very positive and reliable reputation within the industry. They are very much an extension of my in-house team and a joy to work with.
