Stephanie Wilson

Wicked Creative
Stephanie Wilson founded Wicked Creative, one of the top public relations firms in Las Vegas, in 2006. She has since expanded the boutique public relations firm with additional offices in San Diego, Portland and Dallas. In her 20+ years of experience in advertising, marketing and public relations, she has worked with clients ranging from movie stars and spectacular productions to five-star restaurants and hotels.

With a diverse background that includes hospitality, entertainment, spirits, real estate and development, non-profit, cannabis, dining, spirits and retail, Stephanie has led projects from the grand opening of the first Sugar Factory in New York City to the introduction of RH to Las Vegas. Her agency’s impressive client roster includes sports legend, Terry Bradshaw; rock icon and spirits entrepreneur, Sammy Hagar; Golden Entertainment, the owner of 10 resort-casinos in Maryland and Nevada including The STRAT Hotel, Casino & SkyPod, and more than 60 PT’s Taverns; Michael Morton and David Morton’s restaurants, including their One Steakhouse collaboration; Corner Bar Management, the company behind top Las Vegas’ nightlife destinations including Commonwealth, Lucky Day and Park on Fremont; San Diego’s GBOD, the company behind Gaslamp’s Prohibition, El Chingon and Meze; and Matter Real Estate Group, along with the development firm’s much-anticipated UnCommons project.

Stephanie moved to Las Vegas from Denver in 1997 to join a boutique public relations agency where she managed public relations initiatives for Wolfgang Puck’s Spago and other fine dining restaurants, Chicago the Musical, Montecristo Rum, Studio 54, Coyote Ugly Bar & Dance Saloon and Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino, among other well-known brands. In 2001, she joined the company that would eventually become known as Pure Management Group as Director of Marketing, where she handled all the public relations and advertising initiatives for the company’s nightclubs.

In 2004, she left Pure Management Group to join the newly founded Barrick Gaming Corporation as Director of Marketing, which had acquired six hotel-casinos and associated real estate holdings in Downtown Las Vegas, including the Plaza Hotel & Casino. In 2005, she joined Related Las Vegas as Director of Marketing and Communications for the company’s Las Ramblas development, a partnership between Related Companies in New York City, Related Group in Miami, Centra in Las Vegas and George Clooney with After Midnight. When Related closed its Las Vegas office and canceled the $3 billion project in response to the recession in 2006, Stephanie determined the time was right for her to fulfill her dream of starting her own agency and with that, Wicked Creative was born.

A Colorado native, Stephanie graduated from Colorado State University with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Journalism and a minor in Advertising. She has been featured in SEVEN and Vegas Magazine for her style and accomplishments; was selected as one of Vegas Inc.’s “Top 40 Under 40” and was selected as one of Las Vegas Woman’s “Fearless Females.” Her proudest community accomplishment was to be honored with the “Entrepreneur Badge” from Girl Scouts of Southern Nevada. An advocate and mentor, she strives to be a strong example for girls and young women. Stephanie is a long-time member of the Steering Committee for Keep Memory Alive and is on the Board of Directors for Junior Diabetes Research Foundation of Southern Nevada. She has donated public relations services through Wicked Creative to more than a dozen charitable organizations, including Rebel Hockey, The Dave Rice Foundation, The Las Vegas Fashion Council, Special Olympics Nevada, Adopt a Rescue Pet, Best Buddies, After-School All-Stars, The ALS Association Nevada Chapter and The Shade Tree. She has served on the Board of Directors for Big Brothers Big Sisters and on the Steering Committee for Friends of The Shade Tree.

Stephanie enjoys running, going to the beach, skiing, dining out, and time with her son, Teo, and their two rescue dogs, Peanut and Pokey.
