Vested (www.fullyvested.com), an integrated communications firm that is at the front of the rapidly evolving financial sector, today announced that Jacqueline Gogel, a vice president at the agency, earned a spot on the PR News Rising PR Stars 2017 listing.
The judges for this annual award looked at a combination of qualities, including leadership potential, professional growth, campaign innovation, success at media pitching, and relationship-building skills, according to PR News. “The Rising Stars 30 and Under awards were given to some of the industry’s best and brightest from PR agencies, corporate and nonprofit organizations,” the publication stated.
Gogel, who joined Vested shortly after its founding, plays a key role on many of Vested’s accounts. She has developed and executed campaigns for many institutions and financial technology brands, such as Diebold Nixdorf, PeerStreet and Better Mortgage, to raise the profile of industry-leading brands and executives.
“From day one, Jac has seen to it that the agency does anything and everything it can to fiercely provide value to us. The team has been a delight to work with and is a key part of our plans for 2018 and beyond,” said Taylor Salditch, VP of Marketing, Better Mortgage, a Vested client.

“We take our commitment to hiring and retaining the best people seriously, and the recognition Jac earned is yet more validation of the strength of our business model, the quality of our team, and the caliber of our clients,” said Binna Kim, co-founder and president of Vested.
