“We are excited to add another celebrated veteran journalist to our growing team,” said Diane Mulligan. “Mitch is an Emmy award-winning journalist and natural leader. His calm and composure while covering every type of crisis is unsurpassed. Most of all I appreciate that Mitch is a strategic thinker who has honed his PR chops at the Food Bank of the Rockies. It is rare to find someone with so many talents.”

Jelniker will work with clients on the M&C Communications roster such as King Soopers,  Lung Cancer Foundation of America, Monarch Casino Resort Spa, Rocky Mountain Chefs of Colorado, Rocky Ford Growers Association, and the City of Black Hawk.
