Though it doesn’t feel like it, spring is just around the corner and J&C is blossoming with a pair of new team members. Joining our growing family are Len Nowakowski as Content Editor and Paulina Perkaus as Account Coordinator.
Len joins J&C with more than 20 years in the editorial and publishing fields as an editor, proofreader and text quality control specialist. Early in his career, he served as an on-air reporter with NPR station WBEZ-FM in Chicago. He moved into full-time, freelance and contractor positions, where his work included proofreading and editing for medical texts, employee benefits firms, advertising agencies, and hardware retailers. Throughout his career, he has worked with Kaplan Professional (formerly Dearborn), True Value, EDI Group/Thomson Financial Publishing and the Emergency Nurses Association. He also supported J&C in 2016 by proofreading, editing, and writing blog posts for our agency and our clients. As Content Editor, he will review all written communications. Len joins J&C to work with the internal team to plan, create, improve, refine and analyze content. He will help develop copy and content that meets agency standards and help individual team members and others in the company strengthen their skills .
Paulina brings three years of marketing experience to J&C. Her background covers vastly different areas of marketing, including web development, trade shows, social media, writing, editing and design. A recent graduate of the University of Colorado, Boulder, Paulina has worked for the Appraisal Institute, AmericanEagle.com, CU Boulder’s The Tab and The Social Life. Two consistencies across her previous experience: organization and project management. In her role at J&C, she will support her assigned account team with project initiation, coordination, execution and quality control.
In the past six months, J&C made two additional new hires in an effort to continue to add value to the agency and its clients. J&C created two new positions and appointed Susan Phillips to Senior Director, Strategy & Planning and Tim Wheeler to Marketing Supervisor. As we come off our 35th year, our goal is to achieve new levels of growth, while enhancing our collaborative, team-oriented culture where trust is an action verb.
Len and Paulina, we’re excited to have you on the team. Welcome to J&C!
