NEW YORK — Jen Dobrzelecki, most recently Lewis’ New York office head, has joined Affect as senior VP.

Dobrzelecki is focusing on growing the agency and its client base, while also overseeing operations and leading business development.  She reports to president and founder Sandra Fathi.

Dobrzelecki brings more than 20 years of industry experience to the role. In early 2018, she joined Lewis as its first New York office head, as which she was charged with bolstering the firm’s East Coast presence. Before that, she was M&C Saatchi PR’s US head and held leadership positions at Golin and CKPR.

“Jen is an accomplished and admired PR leader who also has the hustle and grit that we value at Affect. She is joining the company at an opportune time to help us elevate our team and our work on behalf of our clients,” Fathi said.

“In the past few months, we’ve helped our clients navigate this extraordinarily difficult period - grappling with the pandemic, the economic fallout and a political and cultural awakening in corporate America. Yet, in spite of all of these challenges, we have managed to keep our team fully intact, grow Affect's business quarter over quarter in 2020 and help position our clients for recovery and success in 2021. With the help of Jen’s experience and leadership, we look forward to continued growth and expansion in the coming year.”
