Every month, Dixon Schwabl honors an outstanding employee with the coveted Jaz Janie Award. The award was created to commemorate Dixon Schwabl Public Relations Vice President Jane “Janie” Argenta, who passed away in September 2009. Jane was a fun-loving, compassionate and hardworking professional who touched the lives of many.
The December Jaz Janie recipient is Public Relations Assistant Courtney O’Gorman.
Courtney is the quiet, behind-the-scenes backbone of our public relations team. She is the ultimate teammate—whenever something needs to get done, she is always there to provide support without question. Countless times, a last-minute project—or one that is a huge undertaking—has popped up, and Courtney helps make it happen.
While most PR team members have a few clients, Courtney has them all—Genesee Brewing Company, Community Bank N.A., Roberts Wesleyan College, Allendale Columbia, del Lago Resort & Casino and SWBR, to name a few. She handles her 15-plus accounts with grace.
She is wholeheartedly deserving of the Jaz Janie Award, and we’re proud to have her on our team. Congratulations, Courtney!
