JEN OTTINGER – Associate Executive Director


Jen directs our business, financial and marketing efforts. She has more than 25 years of experience in business management and marketing, having developed her skills at agencies and design firms in New York, New Jersey and Colorado before joining High 5 in 2002. “I’ve watched the organization grow and become what it is,” she says. “I love making the business operation work for people who are on the front lines. It’s fun to work with these creative people and be a part of that and contribute.” She says that like most of the folks at High 5, she wears many hats and that the rewards come from being part of an amazing group of people. “I get such a kick out of working with people who are the best at what they do. It’s a fun place to be.” Working with our clients, she says, is energizing and even entertaining, which isn’t surprising when the nature of the business is fun and based on success. Jim Grout calls her the Radar O’Reilly of High 5. “She hears the helicopters coming before anyone else,” he says. “She’s highly competent and does it all in a delightful manner.”
