Community Members Awarded Ventura Rotary Club Paul Harris Fellow Award
President and CEO of Consortium Media, Denise Bean-White and Chuck Huffer, Senior Vice President of Kipp Financial Group, were nominated by Stephen Kipp, President and CEO of Kipp Financial Group, to be the recipients of Ventura Rotary Club Paul Harris Fellow Award. This is the second time Bean-White is receiving the award and Huffer’s first.
Bean-White and Huffer are individuals who meet high professional and personal standards around their community set forth by Rotary founder Paul Harris. It is one of the most prestigious awards in Rotary. The foundation supports Humanitarians programs, including grants to fund district and club service projects.
Bean-White opened Consortium Media over 24 years ago as a brand development agency which works locally, regionally and nationally. She created the Five Pillars of Marketing Success™ which strategically combines advertising, promotions, public relations, web, social media and creative to help improve brand recognition. Bean-White donates 1,500 pro bono hours per year to her nonprofit clients to help raise awareness of local and international charities. Clients of Consortium Media include Ventura County’s FOOD Share, ASPIRAnet and PODS® Enterprises, Inc.
“I credit my father’s 36 years in business as a level of integrity I strive to achieve,” Bean-White said. “Service above self is so important to our firm. I also tribute Rotary with leading me to serve my community every day. Receiving this award is indeed a wonderful moment in my life.”
Huffer is the Senior Vice President of Kipp Financial Group, an ensemble practice of leading financial planning and wealth management professionals. Their custom in-depth analysis and client-centered financial solutions are tailored to people’s wealth management needs. Huffer has been a vital member of Kipp Financial Group for 21 years, and a member of Kiwanis in Thousand Oaks, Calif. Huffer was elected to the Conejo Recreation & Park District Board in 2012.
“I strive on achieving our core values by giving back to the community,” Huffer said. “It is important to me to build a reputation of honesty and reliable services. I am extremely grateful to be receiving the Rotary’s Paul Harris Fellow Award.”
