Jennifer Rea

Director, Business Development

Jenn is a communicator at heart, whether she’s launching a corporate social responsibility initiative or wrangling her friends into whatever event she’s planning next.

At GSG, Jenn oversees the day-to-day operations and client relationships for the Seattle office. She brings several years of experience in strategic communications, media relations, project management, campaign planning and execution, event planning and messaging. Her experience ranges from CSR, nonprofit and healthcare, to hospitality, food and beverage and retail. She is passionate about helping the private sector create meaningful career pathways for populations who face barriers and using for-profit practices as a catalyst for social good.

Jenn graduated from the University of Washington Tacoma’s Milgard School of Business with a Bachelors in Business Administration and a focus on Management and Marketing. Before GSG she grew her expertise at other agencies including Edelman, Duo (now Kiterocket), Tin Can Strategies and PRPOSE.

Jenn is one of the few Seattleites who grew up a couple of zip codes outside of the city and despite the rumors, loves to brag on her city’s famous summers. When she’s not making sure everyone’s deadlines are met, payroll is processed and all office dogs are petted, she’s usually planning her next hike, decorating for her next party or locating her next snack. If you visit the Seattle office there’s a good chance you’ll get to taste-test her gluten and dairy-free baking skills.
