Anne Hitchcock, Principal
As in most small companies, it takes a certain amount of savoir-faire to stay on top of all that goes on. Anne takes her work in stride and uses her diplomatic leadership skills and easygoing personality to help guide our clients, and our team, through complex projects. A favorite agency photo of Anne shows her using two cell phones, one in each hand, while also on a video conference call with the JA management team. "I was also on Skype with someone in Barcelona,” admits Anne.
Before joining JA in 2002, Anne worked in educational publishing, conducting research. She also spent time as a teaching assistant and, during the Internet boom, as a marketing manager for a firm that brokered services online for small businesses. One of Anne's most intriguing positions was as a "mobile marketer" for Nantucket Nectars. Designing and executing guerilla marketing tactics, she traveled the western half of the United States and helped increase brand exposure for the Juice Guys through product samplings, promotions, and large sponsorship events.
Anne graduated from Boston College cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in English and Communications. She also studied abroad in the Honors English Program at the University of Port Elizabeth, South Africa.
Anne is a sports fanatic, world traveler, and a beach bum at heart. In her free time, she can be found with her husband, Jeff, often running road races to raise funds for causes close to their hearts. The rest of the time they are at home in Los Angeles, running after their two sons and Boston, their shaggy puppy.
