Ty Bentsen

It’s unclear how Ty finds the time to maintain the perfect manicure while heading up new business, staff development, recruiting, client strategy, and media relations, but she usually nails it all—no pun intended.

A PR industry veteran with 17 years of experience spanning travel, F&B, wellness, beauty, and fashion, Ty brings her signature blend of high-level creative thinking and results-driven strategy to The Brandman Agency’s global roster of luxury and lifestyle clients. When she’s not assisting account teams in crafting award winning campaigns for luxury hotel and tourism board clients, Ty is likely on her way to a HIIT class, rescuing a new pet, or sipping a spicy margarita in Glassell Park. She epitomizes Los Angeles’ work hard, play hard mentality.

“I learned a lot about life in a pool. I was a year-round competitive swimmer and would practice before and after school for two hours. It taught me a lot about time management, dedication, and grit. It also made me slightly obsessed with having good hair—my hair was in a wet bun 24/7.”

“Travel makes me feel alive. It recharges my batteries. There is nothing on this planet that offers the same rush as discovering a new destination, a new hotel, a hidden restaurant or bar in a new city. I always return happier than when I left and immediately start plotting my next adventure.”

“I’m a podcast addict. From  The New York Times’ The Daily with Michael Barbaro, The New Yorker Radio Hour, and Vanity Fair‘s Inside the Hive to Awesome with Alison and The Life Coach School, podcasts are the perfect way for me to plug in and level up as I traverse the streets of Los Angeles. I’m also a massive fan of all things NPR!

“Once I sink my teeth into something, it’s game over. It took nearly a year of negotiating to get the Hollywood sign featured on The Bachelor for Discover Los Angeles, but it was worth it!”
