Nubia DuVall Wilson is a B2B and B2C expert who has developed and implemented marketing and public relations campaigns for brands big and small worldwide for more than a decade. After graduating from Barnard College, Columbia University, her professional career started in Taipei, Taiwan, where she contributed to the growth of a high-end English-speaking “social club” school through events, advertising, and an MTV series featuring teachers at the school, enabling it to open a second location in one year. After working at Real Simple at Time Inc. upon her return to NYC, she switched to public relations and marketing—her first big client was Bacardi Global Travel Retail Division for which she handled B2B media relations, luxury partnerships, large-scale events, retail activations, and advertising. Later she transitioned to luxury travel PR, during which she supported Marriott, Preferred Hotel Group, Mustique Island, Eden Rock – St Barths, and many others. In 2015, she started Cielo Consulting to support entrepreneurs and small-to-mid-sized businesses, with a focus on People, Places, and Products.
Nubia’s diverse background in journalism, consumer marketing and public relations enables her to have a keen sense of strategy when developing communications campaigns, which ultimately help her clients’ goals and dreams become a reality.
Interests & Hobbies
What is your hobby or side passion?
I have so many hobbies! Lately, I have been working on getting my TV pilot picked up, which was inspired by a novella I published in 2018, called “The Survivors Club”, available on Amazon.
What is your favorite movie or book and why?
One of my favorite books is my own! I published “Encounters with Strangers” in 2013, a week before my daughter, Ella, was born, available on Amazon.com. It includes a compilation of humorous vignettes of my encounters with strangers while living in Taipei, Taiwan, and New York City and while traveling worldwide for work.
City or country on your bucket list to visit?
Egypt. (My name is Egyptian, so I have to get there one day!)
