The industry veteran is headed to Jumpwire Media, which she has been associated with since she co-founded the new media consultancy in 2009.

Jennifer Harkness is leaving Temple Street Productions as head of development, factual and reality, to join marketing, metrics, events and consulting company Jumpwire Media, which she co-founded with Gavin McGarry.
