Congratulations to Account Coordinator Mike Hoppe and Account Executive Jess Cummings, recipients of the R&J Make a Difference Award in Q2 and Q3 2021, respectively. Originating from the agency’s brand statement, the Make a Difference Award is given to an employee who goes above and beyond making a difference for the agency, its clients and in the community.
One of the newest additions to the R&J team, Mike quickly made an impression with his writing and media relations skills and has become an invaluable member of the firm since joining in May. His exceptional work as part of the Commercial Real Estate (CRE) team has made a meaningful difference for R&J clients, bolstering the agency’s highly-regarded practice area. Mike immediately ingratiated himself with clients and colleagues and has played an integral role in developing and executing highly-effective campaigns for the agency’s CRE clients.
Since joining R&J in 2017, Jess has very quietly, yet undeniably established herself as the most versatile member of the R&J team. She has made meaningful contributions for clients across a broad range of industries utilizing an equally broad range of tactics and tools. Whether it’s writing, media relations, video scripting/directing/editing… Jess excels across the board. Her PR instincts and versatility make her an asset to every account she is on, making a difference not only for clients, but coworkers as well.
In giving the Make a Difference Award, we applaud Mike and Jess’s dedication to making a difference in the agency and bringing value to its clients every day. In honor of Mike’s award, the agency will be making a donation to Somerset Children’s Center. The Mission of the Somerset Children’s Center is to maximize the potential of each child with special needs through a holistic approach utilizing developmentally appropriate therapeutic services in a safe, nurturing environment. In honor of Jess’s award, R&J will be making a donation to the Community FoodBank of New Jersey (CFBNJ). The organization’s mission is to fight hunger and poverty in New Jersey by assisting those in need and seeking long-term solutions.
Congratulations to Mike Hoppe and Jess Cummings, the recipients of the Make a Difference Award!
