Driven is the word that best describes Jay Foster. Driven for the success of the agency, yes. But, more importantly, driven for the success of the client. And he is relentless in his pursuit of his clients' goals. Jay was a partner in the Tampa advertising agency Hallmark Tassone, and the former CEO of Jasen, Navarro & Foster, an agency he founded in 1982.
Jay has a broad range of experience in handling accounts in a wide variety of industries, but has a special affinity for the information technology and healthcare sectors.
As a public relations counselor since 1981, Jim Swope has improved the visibility of clients in health care, residential and commercial real estate, visual arts, manufacturing, law, retirement living, insurance, aerospace/defense, pharmaceuticals, computers/software, banking and financial services, and non-profit/social services.
He received the Grand All Suncoast Golden Image Award from the Florida Public Relations Association recognizing the best public relations program in Tampa Bay, and is a past president of the organization's Tampa Bay Chapter.
His volunteer service has included, among others, The Hospice of the Florida Suncoast, Healthy Start Coalition of Pinellas County, Palm Harbor Parks & Recreation, Humane Society of North Pinellas, American Cancer Society, Pinellas Public Library Cooperative, Tampa City Centennial Celebration, Arthritis Research Institute of America, and the American Burn Survival Foundation/Children's Burn Camp of Florida.
