Jenni Glenn
Public Relations Account Supervisor


Jenni brings more than 15 years communications experience in entertainment, e-commerce, consumer products, cable/broadcast and nonprofit organizations to Slice Communications.  After studying communications at Rowan University, she began her career as an editor at a music trade magazine in Great Neck, NY.

However, after four years on the other side of the fence in the publishing biz, her passion for PR drove her into the heart of NYC where she led the PR team for the BMG-owned Milan Entertainment record label.  Two years later, when Milan made its move to Hollywood, Jenni opted to stay on the east coast and joined the PR team for CDNOW, Inc., which was – at the time – the second-largest Internet retailer behind Amazon. Over the next several years, she held various manager and executive level positions at some of the country’s most recognizable businesses, including the multi-billion dollar QVC Inc. and the iconic Miss America Organization.

Jenni joined Sprout (NBCUniversal’s preschool television channel) in 2006 and spent the next seven years as head of communications for the network, most recently in the role of vice president of communications and marketing.   While there, she built Sprout’s communications department from the ground up and developed a solid reputation for the start-up channel with both consumer media and cable trades as an innovator and leading children’s television network.  She also acted as the network’s main media spokesperson and was a member of the senior executive team for Sprout, handling all internal and external communications, show publicity, talent relations, social media, crisis communications, prosocial and viewer services.

When Jenni isn’t chasing that perfect pitch for her clients, she is running after her three adopted dogs (two pitbulls and a terrier schnauzer).  A huge advocate for animal welfare and rescue, Jenni volunteers for local no-kill animal shelters and organizations specializing in the rescue, rehabilitation and rehoming of pitbulls who have been abused or abandoned.
