Jennifer Prosek is Founder of Prosek Partners and currently serves as the firm's Managing Partner. Prosek Partners is a leading international financial communications and marketing consultancy with offices in New York, London, Boston, Los Angeles, and Connecticut.

With a team of highly-experienced professionals, Prosek Partners offers a wide range of services, including media relations, financial communications, marketing & digital, investor relations, and issues management. The firm has received many accolades in the US and abroad, including named Corporate Agency of the Year by The Holmes Report, listed as an Inc. 5000 Fastest Growing Company for the past nine years, and was ranked among the 50 most powerful firms in NY by The New York Observer in 2018 and 2019.

This success can be attributed in large part to Prosek’s ability to develop, motivate, and position their employees to be more entrepreneurial and owner-like. This approach to leadership is the premise of Jennifer’s first book “Army of Entrepreneurs: Create an Engaged and Empowered Workforce for Exceptional Business Growth.” This philosophy and her success led to wide recognition. PRWeek has included her on their annual “Power 50” list and she was inducted into the Arthur W. Page Society, of which she currently sits on the Board. She is also on the Board of BritishAmerican Business.

Jennifer earned a BA in English Literature from Miami University and an MBA from Columbia University. She is a frequent speaker at events, both in the private sector and at universities. These include the United States Small Business and Entrepreneurship’s annual conference, The National Collegiate Entrepreneurs’ Organization’s annual conference, the WE Inspire Summit, as well as events at Yale and Syracuse Universities.

Inside the rise of Jennifer Prosek, who went from upstart to financial PR juggernaut

Jennifer Prosek entered PR right out of college in 1990, working for family friend Dan Jacobs. They took every client they could get, including local law firms, real estate brokers, and the local ambulance company. Prosek became a partner a couple years later, bought out Jacobs, and rebranded the firm Prosek. As financial companies moved to Connecticut where the firm was based, she pursued their business, eventually winning Travelers Insurance, HSB, and GE Capital as clients.
