Jordan and Gimblett met a decade ago when both were at a New York City-based boutique firm managing consumer accounts like Carvel, Domino’s Pizza, the Park Central Hotel, DiMassimo Brand Advertising and Bell Atlantic.
Their relationship grew from colleagues to friends as they shared the same philosophies, work ethic and sense of humor. Both Jordan and Gimblett understood the nature of their clients, how best to counsel them and achieve the positive results they desired.
Although they remained friends, their career paths led them to different specialties within the public relations industry. Jordan focused primarily on consumer, food, restaurants, hospitality, architecture and design. Gimblett focused on public affairs, non-profit, real estate, design, business to business and consumer products.
After careful consideration, they came to the conclusion while sometimes their approaches were different, the positive results were the same. Because they like what they do and respect each other greatly, that positive mentality is translated into everything they do.
An idea was planted.
They built a greenhouse for it.
They fed it.
They nurtured it.
They supported it.
It grew into Food Shelter.
