Statler Nagle, LLC was founded by two nationally recognized leaders in the field of industry marketing, Tom Nagle and Jean Statler. Architects of the universally recognized “Got Milk?” and Plastics Make it Possible campaigns, both are highly sought-after for their counsel on strategic marketing and creating, managing and measuring industry marketing and communications efforts.
Over the course of her long Washington, DC career, Jean Statler has racked up experience in every aspect of strategic campaign management. Once noted by the Wall Street Journal as the “image expert” behind many of America’s most successful marketing campaigns, Jean has led numerous programs for clients including the American Heart Association, the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation and the American Petroleum Institute.
For the 11 years preceding her partnership with Tom Nagle, Jean was a Senior Vice President and business leader for Harris Interactive, formerly Wirthlin Worldwide. Here she honed her expertise in values-based communications and led the market research team that established strategies for several award-winning national campaigns. From 1988 to 1995, Jean served as vice president of communications at the American Plastics Council (APC) and was architect for the campaign “Plastics Make it Possible” – one of the first industry campaigns to both change consumer behavior and inoculate an industry against legislative threats.
Jean’s subtle but unmistakable savvy earns her respect and lasting loyalty from colleagues and clients alike. She serves as a Trustee on the Board of Illinois College, the oldest liberal arts college in Illinois, and is a member of the Civilian Public Affairs Advisory Committee for West Point.
|And she’s got game…|
|The March 2008 issue of Golf for Women recognized Jean as one of the Top 50 most powerful women who play — and in June 2011, Golf Digest ranked Jean #43 of the top 100 golfers (both men and women) inside the beltway!|
