Jess Burnside

Van Eperen, an integrated communications agency specializing in public relations, marketing, and creative services, today announced the addition of Jess Burnside as an account executive.

Burnside comes to Van Eperen with experience in managing all aspects of integrated marketing campaigns. Most recently, she was an account and recruiting manager for the Creative Group, where she expanded the client base for marketing services and placed highly skilled creatives in roles within top communications organizations.

Her career began at Giovatto Advertising where she assisted with brief creative research and media for the formulation of client campaigns, provided day-to-day support for clients and vendors, and monitored campaigns. Burnside next joined the King Group One staying within the advertising industry but expanding her responsibilities as an account manager. She managed campaigns with digital, social media, direct mail, television, print, video, email marketing, and radio components. Burnside also ensured that all campaign content remained in compliance with state and federal regulations.

“The addition of Jess to the Van Eperen team strengthens our ability to service clients, which remains a top priority for our agency,” said Laura Van Eperen, CEO and founder. “Her innovative approach to campaign management allows our government and corporate clients to expand the reach of their communications in a way that promotes the integration of traditional public relations strategies and digital marketing.”

Burnside earned a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Fairleigh Dickinson University. A New Jersey native, she now lives in Washington, D.C. In her free time, you might find this avid traveler planning her next trip or taking photographs or drawing as she hikes and bikes around the area.
