Top Women in PR: Jennifer Connelly

Jennifer Connelly, CEO, JCPR

Jennifer has become a preeminent figure in communications since founding JCPR in 2003. From her agency’s roots in the financial industry—working with both boutique brands and renowned financial institutions—to its growing lifestyle and luxury division, Jennifer consistently serves as a trusted counselor to C-suite executives, helping them prepare for and navigate crisis situations, establish leadership positions and make their brands stand out in the market.

When legendary TV program Wall Street Week rebooted for the digital age—after a decade-long hiatus—Jennifer was tapped to publicize the revamped show. Jennifer and her team created an integrated PR and social campaign to capture the attention of TV critics, entertainment writers and financial tastemakers. By helping to secure high-profile guests, Jennifer was able to quickly rocket the show to “must watch” status. Jennifer was also able to elevate the profile of show host Anthony Scaramucci and use the show’s success to secure his spot on the 2015 Worth Power 100, the magazine’s annual list of the most powerful people in global finance.
