Jamie Joffe, “Chief Trouble Maker”
Jamie has established a broad network of media contacts across the country and in the international marketplace and has placed clients in various media channels. Her hands-on experience in every facet of public relations and special events gives her a unique perspective that serves her varied clientele well.
Jamie was born in Philadelphia, and currently resides in Lafayette Hill. She attended the prestigious S.I. Newhouse School of Communications at Syracuse University and earned her MA in Marketing & Communications at Temple University. She began her career with Ogilvy and Mather and has worked with prestigious companies that include: VH1, Paul Mitchell, Hugo Boss, Michael Kors, Jonathan Adler, Gibson Guitar, Velodyne, Monster Cable, United Health Services, International Council of Shopping Centers and Krispy Kreme Doughnuts.
Jamie is a wife, mom and taxi driver to two boys, two dogs and a turtle (and any other strays that may show up).
Raised by a disco queen, she attended her first concert at age 7 (Diana Ross) and learned how to dance the hustle in her living room with the legendary Teddy Pendergrass.
In her downtime she watches reruns of the Real Housewives on Bravo, works on her backgammon strategy and pretends she can play the guitar like Eric Clapton and the drums like Buddy Rich. She sits on the Board of the Marian Anderson Foundation, Mission Kids, and The Do-Gooders.
A graduate of the University of Michigan, Christy spent many years in New York buying and merchandising for some of the most elite fashion retailers including Barneys New York and Bergdorf Goodman. Her reputation for excellence lead her to be recruited by celebrated CFDA designer Michael Kors to serve as VP/Director of Sales and Merchandising. Christy was then tapped by Condé Nast to lead efforts as the Director of eCommerce for the launch of Style.com, the online home of Vogue and W magazines.
Christy’s unique experiences in all channels of the fashion industry give her invaluable perspective into luxury branding, business development for start-ups and established entities, trend analysis, and driving online business through the creation of engaging content.
Relocating to Philadelphia (her hometown) Christy joined j2 Communications in 2014 as Managing Director. In this role, Christy is responsible for business development as well as the effective implementation of campaign strategy. Christy provides input and direction to ensure the successful execution of client programs, and works closely with creative services to deliver effective and exciting brand creative. Her extensive management experience overseeing operations, staffing and team building, combined with the creative insight she received curating collections and producing original editorial makes Christy the ideal individual to manage an agency situated in an industry like Public Relations. She resides in Bryn Mawr, PA, “managing” her entrepreneurial husband and her two fashionable pre teen daughters.
