Jennifer Kamienski: 40 Under 40 2012

VP, Coyne Public Relations

She has crowned the Statue of Liberty, but when it comes to public relations, Jennifer Kamienski is queen. The 39-year-old "supermom" heads up Coyne PR’s lifestyle group, which includes the agency’s restaurant, travel, and pets divisions and involves working with clients such as Burger King, Hong Kong Tourism Board, South African Tourism, Heathrow Airport, and Del Monte Pet Products. During her time at the agency, she has been responsible for such notable campaigns as the award-winning celebration of Del Monte brand Milk-Bone’s 100th anniversary and the State of Pet Health report for

Banfield Pet Hospital. She was also the brains behind the launch of the Burger King BK Crown Program for children, which included a Guinness WorldRecord-sized crown made specifically for the Statue of Liberty, measuring 15 feet high and 19 feet wide.

 Kamienski is superb at pitching new business, spearheading some of the biggest wins in agency history this past year, and is a "must-have member of any brainstorm," according to colleagues. She makes a huge contribution to agency life and policy, heading up the firm’s measurement committee and helping institute best practices for new mothers, flexible working, and telecommuting as a member of the work-life balance committee. Kamienski also oversees Danielle Paleafico, one of PRWeek’s 2012 Young PR Professional of the Year finalists.

John Gogarty, EVP of Coyne PR, describes Kamienski as "one of the most strategic execs in PR. From travel to consumer packaged goods and even pets, Jennifer has adapted to the ever-changing PR landscape by creating breakthrough campaigns that wow clients and media." "She is a terrific mentor," he adds, "managing a family and client demands. Jennifer is a role model for other moms and junior staff who struggle with work-life challenges." Brad Buyce, EVP for client strategy, says, "She expects to succeed and she does. I have never seen Jen back down from a challenge."
