Founded by veteran Fortune senior editors Pattie Sellers and Nina Easton, SellersEaston Media (SEM) captures and curates the stories behind the lives, times, and accomplishments of successful individuals, families and companies.
We work with clients to tell their stories with care and credibility. With decades of experience interviewing and writing about CEOs and other leaders—in print, on video, on stage—we understand that what matters most is impact: how you make a difference in the world, how ideas change lives, and how a life well-lived gives meaning to others. Working with clients to shape and communicate their stories for their select audiences we help them pass on core values and wisdom to perpetuate success and build legacies. SEM’s beautifully crafted and compelling narratives are ideal to celebrate any milestone event such as a birthday or simply to create a modern family portrait. The client controls and owns the content we create.
