SAN JOSE, Calif., December 14, 2016 – McGrath/Power Public Relations and Communications, a leading, independent integrated communications agency, has been selected by the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation as its agency partner to increase awareness of the prestigious Hertz Fellowship and exceptional innovations made by Hertz Fellows over the last sixty years.

“It was important to us that we find a partner that felt like an extension of our internal team and we quickly found just that in McGrath/Power,” said Robbee Baker Kosak, president of the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation. “I was immediately impressed with McGrath/Power’s passion for storytelling and unique approach to leveraging multiple channels to reach new audiences for the Foundation. I am greatly looking forward to collaborating with the McGrath/Power team as we look to expand both our network of donors and Fellows.”

Headquartered in Livermore, California, the Fannie and John Hertz Foundation is a tax exempt, not-for-profit organization dedicated to enabling America’s most brilliant minds with the freedom to innovate through financial and fellowship support. The Hertz Fellowship was the first to include professional development support throughout a Fellow’s career from a prestigious network of academic leaders and scientific innovators. For nearly sixty years, the Hertz Foundation has identified the country’s most exceptional scholars and enabled them to disrupt the fields of science, engineering and mathematics by driving life-changing innovations.

“It is rare that an opportunity comes along to work with an organization with a cause as noble as the Hertz Foundation,” said Jonathan Bloom, CEO and founding partner of McGrath/Power. “My team and I are honored to be working with an organization dedicated to finding this country’s most brilliant minds and empowering them to create innovations that have the potential to dramatically change the lives of people here in the U.S. and around the world.”
