Lilia Lipps

Marketing Manager

chamber@beachwood.org

Lilia has been with the chamber since February 2020. Charged with improving the chamber’s social media and other marketing efforts, she calls upon her 20+ years of marketing experience. Doing the social media and much of the event planning sometimes has Lilia feeling like a cruise activities director, a role she is well suited for.

Lilia lives with her husband Todd, daughter Madeline and puppy Lola. One of her secret weapons is that she is a master networker and can charm the pants off just about anyone. She lived on 3 continents and spoke 3 languages by the age of 5. Lilia also owns Lipps Service, a full-service boutique marketing agency.
