Marcella Thompkins leads our Wine Country Team, working closely with clients to develop strategy and programming, and overseeing the PR and digital staff. Her passion for all things taste and travel inspired her foray into wine, food and travel straight out of college. She joined McCue in 2014 after launching her career at Pasadena magazine, coordinating PR efforts for clients such as Visit Santa Rosa, Madrona Manor, Vintners Inn, Ferrari-Carano Winery and Ponte Family Estate. She spent several years as an Account Supervisor at Wagstaff Worldwide, where she oversaw accounts such as AmaWaterways, Riedel Glassware, and Patina Restaurant Group. After a stint as Marketing Manager for the Four Seasons Beverly Hills, she returned to McCue in 2017, bringing her national media contacts, global brand experience and team-building expertise to her current role.
Marcella has her WSET Level 1 Award in Wines and is eager to continue her education and career in the world of wine.
