Jennifer Beidle, President and CEO

A native St. Louisan, Jennifer Beidle first became interested in public relations while studying media communications at Webster University, accepting a public relations internship at the St. Louis Science Center. After graduating with a Bachelor of Arts in Media Communications with an Emphasis in Journalism, Jennifer went on to become a community newspaper reporter in Jefferson County, MO where she gained valuable experience identifying news, writing articles, cultivating sources and participating in community projects and organizations. Jennifer reported for the Suburban Journals of Jefferson County and the Arnold-Imperial Leader for a total of four years.

After leaving the newspaper business, Jennifer held an agency web content writing position, then was hired as a public relations account executive at two St. Louis-based advertising agencies. Influenced by a desire to become an entrepreneur, Jennifer decided in 2003 to start her own public relations consulting business, Jennifer Beidle Communications, and cultivate her own clients, many of which she has worked with for years.

Jennifer has continued to make a name for herself working with small businesses, start-ups, associations and corporations of all sizes on a variety of public relations and marketing projects, each custom-tailored for maximum exposure. She believes in personalized attention for all her clients and has built a reputation for honesty, hard work and dedication. In 2013, Jennifer Beidle Communications was named a Top Public Relations Firm in St. Louis by the readers of St. Louis Small Business Monthly.

John Beidle, CFO

Also a native St. Louisan, John returned to the Show Me State in 1997 to pursue a career in the mortgage industry after making markets at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange for eight years. He worked as a loan originator and branch manager until 2005 when he decided to leave the mortgage industry. John moved into the financial planning sector where he worked until 2008 when he saw a greater need to help the small business community with their taxes. John earned the designation of Enrolled Agent from the Internal Revenue Service and began saving small business owners money on their taxes through his business 1040 Wealth Designs, LLC.

During the Great Recession, John began the St. Louis Small Business Meetup Group to encourage local business networking and growth. The meetup is the second largest in the St. Louis region with over 3,000 members and has held monthly seminars on every facet of marketing and running a small business. John also volunteered with two non-profit organizations in the St. Louis startup community and helped advise a number of startups on investor pitching, which saw one company obtain funding on the West Texas Investors Club cable television show.

Besides handling the financial aspects of JBC, John is also responsible for new business development and website production.
