Ashley Wehrly’s career has spanned the media, business and civic circles in Texas as well as across the U.S. She has directed statewide and national marketing, public relations and community outreach programs in a variety of industries, including consumer products, energy, technology, hospitality, legal, financial services, healthcare, transportation, real estate, and the arts.
Some of her current and past clients include Whole Foods Market; Travelocity.com; Microsoft; BBVA Compass; Pennzoil/Jiffy Lube; The Tierra Companies, including Tierra Transportation, Tierra Pipeline and Tierra Energy Marketing; The Finger Companies; restaurant companies such as Outback Steakhouse, Inc., Freebirds World Burrito and Cordua Restaurants; the law firms of Chamberlain Hrdlicka and BoyarMiller; Lucky Strike Lanes & Lounge; and Time Warner Communications.
Wehrly grew up in the Greater Houston Area, working her way through college at the University of Houston. While studying for her degree in Media Studies, Wehrly worked with restaurant investors, Block Lava Group, owners of Houston’s famous 8.0 restaurant and bar, among many others. In 2003, Wehrly founded The Wehrly Marketing Group and after two years of rapid growth, the Houston Business Journal ranked the company as Houston’s 16th largest public relations firm. In late 2006, Wehrly sold her company to accept an offer to work in-house for a high profile financial services client. However, the call of agency work proved too strong, and in early 2009, Wehrly reestablished herself as one of Houston’s top public relations, marketing and business development consultants.
Wehrly is a committee member of the Houston Livestock Show & rodeo, a special events committee member for Houston Grand Opera, and serves on the advisory board for Recipe for Success. Wehrly has won numerous awards for her public relations and marketing work from the International Association of Business Communicators, the Association for Women in Communications, and the Texas Public Relations Association.
