Empower Media Names Ashlee Clarke CEO and Majority Shareholder

CINCINNATI (January 12, 2023) – Today Adweek reported on Empower Media’s exciting news on becoming the largest woman-owned media agency in America.

Ashlee Clarke, now CEO and majority shareholder of Empower said “What’s really exciting is we are inheriting quite the legacy that the Price family has built. The strides they have made for women in leadership and their focus on diversity, equity and inclusion has been a key driver of their growth. It’s my goal to continue to build on this momentum. 17% of the staff is diverse, and 64% of senior level positions are now held by women, with women making up 70% of the overall team based out of Cincinnati, Chicago, and Atlanta.”
