40 Under 40, Kishner

Gary Kishner, 38 Vice President of Public Relations, JPMorgan Chase As vice president of public relations for JPMorgan Chase, Gary Kishner says he holds together the institution’s many lines of business. “I have made it my mission and passion to know what is happening across the company’s lines of business in my region as well as what is happening nationally and could have impact in California,” said Kishner, 38, who works at the company’s Chatsworth office. A graduate of Cal State University, Northridge, Kishner oversees communications for more than 1,500 retail branches in California, Nevada and Arizona, spotlighting philanthropic activities and working to mitigate reputation damage in the press. Kishner also with nonprofits that Chase helps fund through a variety of grants each year. “When Chase awards a grant to a nonprofit, or recently to small businesses, and I am able to present the check to that organization — being able to see the people and the work they do and how our grants will help them is very rewarding.” Kishner often gives advice to the young professionals who work for him, advising them that not trying is worse than failing. “The worst enemy of success is not doing anything in fear of being wrong.”
