Meet Jennifer Kisser, EKCS’s new strategic solutions consultant


Jennifer Kisser joins EKCS as a strategic solutions consultant from the American publishing company McClatchy. In her new role at EKCS, Jennifer will be working with current and prospective North American clients, both in the US and Canada. She joins the US onshore team. 


We speak to Jennifer to find out how she is finding her (very) new role at EKCS, talk about what she hopes to bring to EKCS and find out about the hobby farm that she runs in her free time. 

Where are you based?  

I am based an hour north of Kansas City, Missouri, and live on a 40-acre hobby farm with my husband, five rescue dogs, and a number of other farm animals. 

What are you enjoying about EKCS so far?  

I am excited to be joining EKCS, with whom I have had the pleasure of working since 2008. I have always been impressed with the professionalism, responsiveness, and precise standards of care. Everyone has been most welcoming to the organisation, and it feels like I fit right in.   

What is the main challenge you see for the North American media industry? 

I believe the main challenge for the North American media industry is when to transition from print to digital publications while producing and funding quality journalism with a sustainable business model. 

What do you hope to bring to EKCS?

My goal is to combine my experiences from 30 years in the newspaper and digital news media industries, both from the advertising operations and overall business strategy perspectives, to bring the best solutions to clients in these challenging times.

I believe strongly in the benefits of Media Ferry technology, the talented offshore teams, and the ingenuity of the leadership team to continue to grow and evolve to meet the future needs of all levels of creative production services.

Back to your farm...

We've had our farm for 21 years, which has been a delightful daily retreat from 'corporate America.' We have a small herd of beef cattle, a paint horse, chickens, guinea fowl, cats, and five rescue dogs: three Labradors, an Australian Blue Heeler, and a Louisiana Catahoula Leopard Dog.

How much time does the farm take up?

The farm is set up with modern conveniences, so taking care of everything doesn't take a lot of time, especially in the summer and fall when the cattle are on pasture. We rent 40 acres adjacent to our farm, so we have 80 acres for grazing. Time-wise, an hour a day is necessary, but we probably spend two hours a day visiting and having fun with the animals.

It sounds idyllic, especially after a busy day of looking after EKCS’s publishing clients! 

We also keep a vegetable garden with sweet corn, tomatoes, and cucumbers, and have a lot of perennial flowers, especially iris, peonies, and daylilies.
