Michael W. Kempner, Founder and CEO of leading independent public relations agency, MWWPR, has been ranked on the 2021 NJBIZ Power 100 list. The publication chronicles the decisions made by elected officials and business leaders that impact the state’s business climate and economic development to build the list.
NJBIZ noted “he and his firm are institutions in the state, a go-to source for stellar guidance in a variety of sectors,” but “his real influence is a top Democratic fundraiser.” Kempner’s political standing was reinforced early in the Biden administration with his reappointment to the corporate board of three federally funded broadcasters.
The combination of MWW’s expertise in integrated public relations and Kempner’s connections to local and national government prove valuable for the agency and its clients each year; in 2020, they actively worked with those on the frontlines of the Covid-19 pandemic—from formally establishing essential status for business’ license to operate and taking on the NJ Pandemic Relief Fund as a pro bono client to accelerate recovery in the agency’s founding state.
This recognition is Kempner’s seventh consecutive year being ranked by NJBIZ. He was also inducted to the PRWeek Hall of Fame in December for his contributions to the industry.
