Posted on: October 8th, 2020 by Romanucci & Blandin

CHICAGO (October 8, 2020) – Romanucci & Blandin, LLC, a national litigation firm primarily based in Chicago, announces Chief Communications Officer Jennifer McGuffin has been named the winner of the Woman of the Year in Advertising, Marketing and Public Relations award in the 17th annual Stevie Awards for Women in Business.  Jennifer was awarded the Gold trophy, the highest level. 

Jennifer was recognized for her dedication to the firm’s communications and marketing activities, including media relations on a range of high profile civil rights cases including representing the families of George Floyd and Daniel Prude, environmental matters like the ethylene oxide exposure case involving Sterigenics, representing clients who lost loved ones due to Boeing 737 MAX negligence and pursing justice for consumers after Commonwealth Edison admitted to a bribery scheme. Jennifer leads the firm’s communication team which also created a thought leadership series called Cases & Concepts to allow the firm’s attorneys to create educational videos or written blogs on timely legal issues. This impactful work all was done while overcoming Breast Cancer treatment in 2019 as a single mom.

The Stevie Awards for Women in Business honor women executives, entrepreneurs, employees, and the companies they run– worldwide.  The Stevie Awards have been hailed as the world’s premier business awards. The Stevie® Award trophy is one of the world’s most coveted prizes.  Since 2002, the Gold Stevie Award has been conferred for achievement in business to organizations and individuals in more than 60 nations.

“Jennifer joined our firm in 2019 and made an immediate and positive impact. We value her energy and commitment as a professional, and look forward to her continued contributions to our firm and to the regional and national discussions on critical and complex legal matters,” said Antonio M. Romanucci, Founding Partner at Romanucci & Blandin.

More than 1,500 entries were submitted this year for consideration in more than 100 categories, including Executive of the Year, Entrepreneur of the Year, Company of the Year, Startup of the Year, Women Helping Women, and Women Run Workplace of the Year.  

Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie Award winners were determined by the average scores of more than 180 business professionals around the world, working on seven juries.  

Judges’ comments on Jennifer included:

“Jennifer is a standout as she has been able to change the landscape for how law firms are viewed, perceived and marketed. The firm’s Cases & Concepts series is powerful and sustainable, as it focuses on timely real-life situations. Having the ability to focus on difficult and emotionally charged situations and bring them to a level that is neutral enough to be acceptable is certainly a high skill.”

“Jennifer has undoubtedly added tremendous value and drawn media attention to really important cases and causes in the public interest, combined with navigating cancer simultaneously, which is hugely inspiring.”

Maggie Gallagher, president of the Stevie Awards, said, “In a year like no other in our lifetimes, we’ve produced a cohort of amazing, Stevie-winning women, organizations, and achievements like no other.  At all times, our winners show themselves to be fearless and indomitable, but their leadership and example are especially valued this year.  We congratulate all of our Gold, Silver, and Bronze Stevie winners.  We look forward to celebrating them during our December 9 virtual ceremony, and to hearing from some of them during our Women|Future Conference on November 12-13.”
