He also spent five years at J.P. Morgan overseeing press outreach and messaging for the Corporate & Investment Bank’s credit and debt-focused businesses.
“I’ve known Jen and a number of the firm’s Partners for more than a decade and can’t imagine a better time to join and be a part of something special,” said Justin Perras. “From the senior leadership to the most junior people at the firm, Prosek’s combination of high-level strategic advice and tactical execution has created a culture that I’m very excited to play a role in and be a part of.”
Perras began his financial services PR career at Dukas Public Relations. He holds a bachelor’s degree in journalism from the University of Wisconsin-Madison.
