NEW YORK: Fenton has appointed Jennifer Hahn SVP in its New York office, focusing on social issues.
Hahn, who is reporting to Fenton MD Beth Kitzinger, is focusing on branding, advocacy, messaging, social change media, as well as public engagement strategies for the firm's corporate, nonprofit, and foundation clients.
Hahn said she is thought of as the “issues” SVP at the agency. She joined the firm April 4.
“Fenton is a social change communications agency, and my career has been dedicated to that,” Hahn said. “I love the idea that this is a team that uses stories, media, and technology in the effort to make the world a better place.”
She started her career at national public TV station Thirteen/WNET, where she helped lead the “Campaign to Save Public Broadcasting.”
After that, she served as the associate director of communications at nonprofit Girls Inc., which works to give confidence to girls.
Most recently, Hahn worked at communications firm Douglas Gould and Company for 15 years, serving as principal since 2007.
In addition to bringing on Hahn, the agency is planning to relaunch its website later this week.
Earlier this month, Fenton hired David Richeson, former chief digital officer and MD at Kaplow Communications, to serve as global chief digital officer.
