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 October Jaz Janie recipient is Vice President of Business-to-Business Marketing Justin Shaw.
From I-90 to Vegas, public relations to new business, Justin tackles it all and is a huge asset to the agency. His enthusiasm is contagious—you can’t help but feel energized when you’re around him.
Throughout the past year, Justin has worked extremely hard to grow Dixon Schwabl’s Buffalo business, and it’s paid off. At our grand-opening event in Buffalo, many guests in attendance came from the connections he made through his hard work and relationship building. In addition to his work in Buffalo, Justin has grown the Apex tools business and traveled to manage tradeshows and client expectations.
Justin is a prime example of a team player and is the first one to step up for any project. He leads with integrity, and knows the importance of community, respect and definitely how to have fun. He possesses all our core values and is most deserving of this month’s Jaz Janie Award. Congratulations, Justin!
