Jessamyn Katz is a client partner and president of Heyman Associates, where she sets standards for client work and manages major national and global searches. After nearly a decade in New York, she built the firm’s West Coast presence and has developed particularly close relationships across that technology-heavy region.
Jessamyn developed a taste for public relations while still in college through internships at Abernathy MacGregor and Burson-Marsteller. She knew she wanted to spend her career around people who build brands and preserve their reputations. With more than 15 years of experience in communications, she’s a credible counselor to clients and candidates who keeps a close watch on where these functions are heading.
Jessamyn advises clients across sectors, with an emphasis on technology, healthcare, financial services, nonprofits and higher education. She is also an active member of the Arthur W. Page Society’s Page Up Association and was named one of PRWeek’s 2020 Women to Watch.
