Jeff Rocke is a results-oriented and creative communications professional who partners effectively with both C-level executives and junior staff. Jeff was a member of my Executive Team when I served as President of manufacturing and supply chain operations for a major pharmaceutical company.
We worked closely on a variety of activities and he created a communications approach to help form a durable connection with the managers and employees of a massive organization. Our most successful project involved a a major change initiative for 17,000 employees at dozens of the company's global manufacturing sites. Jeff led both the strategy and execution of a multi-faceted communication and culture transformation program.
The results of this program were spectacular – helping to achieve major cost savings and improving key metrics, while dramatically elevating the morale and confidence of the entire organization.
Jeff brings diverse skills, experience and an effective coaching style to every challenge and I can highly recommend him to potential clients and business partners.
I had the good fortune of partnering with Jeff Rocke while leading Communications and Public Affairs for Aramark.
During our six years working together, Jeff consistently demonstrated leadership qualities of the highest order and served as an instrumental and enthusiastic collaborator across all levels of the company from the C-suite to the front line.
He excelled at the essential thought leadership needed to plan, build and execute multi-faceted programs and events to achieve repeated success. Yet his leadership characteristics and subject matter expertise never precluded him from engaging in hands-on tactics to get the best job done.
On the people side, Jeff’s abilities shine even brighter. He earned the respect of executives worldwide by working to deliver high-impact communications to their businesses and functions. Equally important were his unmatched skills in leading, directing and motivating his own team and others. Jeff always conducted himself with a commitment to shared values, topped by the highest integrity and dedication to doing the right thing.
Jeff brings a rare combination of thoughtful analysis, strategic mindedness, pragmatic solutions and innovative creativity to every challenge.
