Congratulations to two of our clients, who are finalists in the prestigious Stevie Awards for Women in Business!
Suji Park, Chief Inspirational Officer of Suji’s Korean Cuisine and Suji’s Korean Grill is a finalist in the Female Entrepreneur category, and Kathryn Haslanger of JASA, the largest and most trusted agency serving the aging in New York City, is a finalist in the category of Female Executive of the Year for a non-profit agency. Next month, both women will learn whether they have won the bronze, silver or gold Stevie.
Frankly, we can’t think of two women who deserve this recognition more.
Kathryn is the CEO of JASA, which serves roughly 43,000 New York seniors. The agency is one of New York’s largest and most trusted non-profits serving the needs of the city’s older residents. To meet this growing population’s needs, the agency needs to constantly change and adapt. Kathryn is the visionary behind this change. This past year, she restructured how services are provided, creating a more holistic approach, with a formal collaboration between social services and health care. This “marriage” of program elements puts JASA on the cutting edge of re-thinking how core services are provided to this population.
The work JASA does every day continues to amaze us, as does Kathryn herself.
MoJJo also is proud to be the agency of record for Suji’s two U.S.-based businesses. With companies also based in Korea and in Japan, Suji Park is an international culinary ambassador who focused on food as a way to bring diverse cultures together through the camaraderie of shared meals. Her efforts have united discerning foodies in Asia, and now are bringing Americans into her fold through the bold flavors of Korean Cuisine. Her retail, foodservice and restaurant businesses are rapidly expanding and Suji Park is quickly becoming an influence on the American food scene.
Congratulations to both of you – we can’t wait to see what’s ahead!
