Mary Jo Behrman

Managing Director


Mathematician? Missourian? Master of Science? MJ is all of these, as well as one of Edelman’s most recent Managing Director hires. MJ combines her unique background in education and academics with more than 15 years of rich experience building brands, leading digital builds and producing social media content for retailers and F&B brands including significant time with Walmart, McDonald’s, Unilever, Bacardi Ltd, Sargento and various commodity organizations (dairy, peanuts, soy). Focused on innovation and martech applications, MJ applies her midwestern work ethic and accountability to the practical application of materials creation and audience persuasion. Splitting time between her hometown of St. Louis, Chicago and Miami, MJ has three 20-something sons and a 2-year-old rescue pup that she and her family adopted during the planning process for GroceryShop…we recently named him Wags.
