Sachs Media announced that veteran state government communicator Jenn Meale Poggie will join the agency’s senior leadership team in the role of Senior Account Manager of Public Affairs, advancing the top-ranked firm’s ability to provide superior service to its diverse roster of clients.

Poggie joins the firm as Sachs Media approaches its 25th anniversary in business, routinely ranked among the top independent PR firms in the country and frequently recognized for its award-winning work. The firm has current contracts to develop public education and outreach campaigns for state and federal governments and has a spectrum of private sector, association and non-profit clients, including The Suddath Companies, Lyft, The Florida Bar, and Healthy Start.

“I am thrilled to be joining the high-caliber, talented team at Sachs Media. During the course of my career, I have seen firsthand how the firm’s effective strategic campaigns have advanced positive public policy, changed public behavior and achieved its impressive clients’ vital missions,” said Poggie.

In addition to Sachs and Ubben, Poggie joins a leadership team that includes partners Lisa Garcia, Herbie Thiele, Ryan Cohn, Drew Piers, and Karen Cyphers, and other senior leaders Cheryl StopnickKathy Maiorana, Jon Peck, Chauniqua Major and Kelly Corder.

Sachs Media provides strategic communications services for mid- to large-sized corporate, nonprofit, and government organizations with high-stakes challenges.
