“At the size they are, where you would assume they are more challenged to focus on things that go directly to revenue growth, the amount of energy spent on the real foundational work of engaging employees so that the environment within these agencies is compelling, creative and attractive in terms of retaining and recruiting was also a refreshing insight for me from judging this year.” added Torod Neptune, Lenovo VP and CCO.

SourceCode brings on Kristen Stippich to run New York office

NEW YORK: SourceCode Communications has hired Kristen Stippich for a newly created SVP role.

Stippich is leading the firm’s New York office and is tasked with business development and client service. She started in the role on Monday, reporting to managing partner Rebecca Honeyman. Stippich does not have any direct reports, but that will change as she becomes acclimated to the role, said managing partner Greg Mondshein, who added, “We are putting her on the highest dollar value and strategic accounts.”

“[Honeyman] and I decided early on that we were going to thrive through the pandemic and not just let it happen to us,” he said. “This is the next step. Bolstering our senior team has been a focus of ours so we could offer better service to all accounts and focus on the next area of growth. We will be inorganically growing via our service offering, geography and sector experience.”

Stippich was a senior director at SourceCode client Technovation, a global tech education nonprofit. That company is searching for her replacement, said COO Amy Kim.

"Kristen has been an integral part of Technovation's leadership team, and she spearheaded our rebranding and increased our visibility greatly,” Kim said. “We hope to be able to find a new team member who will bring the same energy to our small team."

Founded in late 2017, SourceCode’s revenue grew 107% last year to $3 million, according to PRWeek’s Agency Business Report.

Jane Names SourceCode Communications as its PR Agency of Record

NEW YORKJuly 15, 2020SourceCode Communications today announced that it has been selected as the communications agency of record for Jane, a Utah-based boutique e-commerce marketplace that provides a platform for small businesses to grow. From the beginning of the partnership in February, SourceCode has been tasked with boosting Jane’s recognition in the e-commerce space, and supporting announcements around notable hirings for the company as well as a planned expansion of the sites’ category offerings. This is Jane’s first agency of record appointed in recent years. 

“Given our growth plans as a company and the expansion of our category offerings, we needed a partner with varied experience across the consumer marketplace,” said Meagen Johnson, VP of Marketing at Jane. “SourceCode’s retail know-how and experience in e-commerce, combined with their personal touch throughout the selection process, confirmed that they were the right agency for us.”

Ranked #28 on Utah Business’ 2019 Fast 50 Honorees, Jane is an innovative company taking the retail world by storm. The online boutique marketplace gives small businesses a platform for their products, while helping customers stay on trend and on budget -- both factors which have caused increased interest in the site since the pandemic, as shoppers look to support small businesses without hurting their wallet. 

Jane has also been recognized for its work toward social good with its #JaneforGood initiative. The company donated 10,000 masks to the Utah Department of Health, and has donated a portion of the proceeds for every mask sold – so far, more than 1 million masks have been sold on Jane.com since the start of the pandemic. In line with the recent social justice efforts, the company also partnered with one of its sellers to create a tee around Juneteenth. All profits were donated to the Loveland Foundation, an organization committed to showing up for communities of color in unique and powerful ways, with a particular focus on Black women and girls and continuing their efforts to advance social responsibility.

“Jane sits in a unique space right now as a result of the pandemic, with stores closed and shopping only available online – a space Jane has been in for much longer than traditional brick-and-mortar stores who are only now recognizing the power of a digital presence,” said Sara Ajemian, Vice President of Insights & Engagement at SourceCode. “Jane has been able to quickly adapt to meet consumer demand, and, like us, they understand the power of being agile and forward thinking. We’re excited to work with them and introduce the brand to a broader audience.”

SourceCode, founded in 2017, has a legacy of bringing disruptive brands like Everlast and Elvie to the forefront of the retail industry, as well as building strong B2B thought leaders in the space having worked with companies like Blis, Channel Bakers, and Yotpo. The agency has been recognized for its notable work with consumer and B2B clients, taking home best consumer campaign of the year for Everlast Worldwide’s “Be First” Campaign at PRovoke Media's 2020 SABREAwards North America, and coming in second place nationally and fourth globally in PRovoke Media's Global PR Agency Rankings 2020. SourceCode is currently a contender for PRWeek's 2020 US Outstanding Boutique Agency.

We've united industry partners to launch the Diversity Marketing Consortium

In an effort to help offset systemic racial and gender-based inequality for diverse founders, we’re proud to share that SourceCode Communications, employee experience agency Cheer Partners, influencer agency Social Studies, and performance marketing agency Superbolt are uniting to form The Diversity Marketing Consortium.

Recent events have highlighted the ways in which women and minorities don’t have the same equal access to opportunities. Our country is on a long road to repair systemic inequities plaguing every aspect of our lives, and the DMC is only one way we can help on that journey. Founded on the recognition of these injustices, the Diversity Marketing Consortium commits to providing $1.5 million in marketing services to diverse founders over the course of two years.

Through our partnership with Harlem Capital Partners (HCP), an early-stage venture capital firm committed to investing in underrepresented founders, recipient companies will include those in HCP’s portfolio, in addition to startups via an open call for applicants.

The time for change is now, and it’s long overdue. Check out more information on the Diversity Marketing Consortium at www.diversitymarketingconsortium.com and see what our industry leaders are saying below:


Gympass names SourceCode North American AOR

NEW YORKJune 24, 2020SourceCode Communications today announced that it has been selected as the U.S. communications agency for Gympass, the corporate wellness benefit platform that provides employees access to the world’s largest global network of gyms, studios and wellness apps. Through this partnership, which started in May, SourceCode will be focused on raising Gympass’ visibility across the U.S market and shining a light on its recently expanded virtual offerings — live classes, Gympass Wellness, and live personal training.

“We have seen the immense value of our product across the globe, and we believe SourceCode’s background combines the right amount of corporate and consumer experience to help us foster the growth we are looking to achieve in the U.S.,” said Marshall Porter, U.S. CEO at Gympass. “We were impressed with the ideas and creativity that SourceCode presented throughout the pitch process, and we look forward to translating that into our work together ahead.”

Gympass was built on the mission to defeat inactivity by making fitness and wellness accessible, convenient, and affordable. Since its launch in Brazil in 2013, the company has seen significant global growth, currently offering its platform in 14 countries, with over 2,000 corporate clients and 50,000 fitness partners. Throughout COVID-19, the Gympass platform has proven to be an invaluable resource as many people have been forced to rethink their health and fitness routines, and as employers increasingly see the value in providing their employees with robust physical and mental health benefits.

“As an employer, supporting the health and wellness of employees is more important than ever, especially as we all work to navigate a new ‘work from home’ reality,” said Greg Mondshein, Managing Partner at SourceCode Communications. “Gympass makes it easy for companies to invest in these critical resources for their workforce — from mental health to nutrition to personal training to meditation — truly creating a one-stop-shop for wellness and fitness offerings. We are true believers in the work that Gympass is doing, so much so that we are also a client of theirs, and we are thrilled to get to tell their story here in the U.S..”

Gympass joins brands like Everlast and Fittrack as the most recent addition to SourceCode’s fitness and wellness client portfolio. The NY-based agency was founded in 2017 and has been repeatedly recognized for its notable work across consumer and enterprise practices since. The agency recently took home best consumer campaign for Everlast’s “Be First” initiative at the Bulldog PR Awards, and was shortlisted for PRovoke’s 2020 North America Boutique PR Agency of the Year.

A Statement from SourceCode's Founders on Recent Events

We are horrified and revulsed by the events across our country in the past few weeks. The murder of George Floyd coming so soon after the deaths of Ahmaud Arbery and Breonna Taylor further spotlighted the racial inequities and systemic aggression that shamefully persist in our society.

Being silent on racism and the disparities and violence it inflicts is to be complicit. We become part of the problem if we do nothing. We refuse to tolerate this or allow this to be part of our story even one day more. At SourceCode, we are committing to do more to confront the racial injustice that continues to plague us. We are donating immediately to the cause and educating ourselves and our teams. We are ensuring that our recruitment and working practices are as inclusive as possible. And we are investing our resources to amplify the voices of minority leaders, innovators and entrepreneurs.

To build an equal society we need to first understand and appreciate the depth of the injustice. If you’re looking for resources and want to do your part in joining us in making sure all our voices are heard, you can sign the following petitions:

We firmly believe we all have a part to play in making this world a better and equitable place for all of us. These are just our first steps toward that. We are on this journey together and we welcome all and any ideas you have.
