View image on Twitter

“Michael and Jennifer have been responsible for all press releases and company communication, and serve as my ongoing editing team. There is a reason they have provided communication support for some of the most recognized CEOs in the U.S. – I wouldn’t trade them for the world.” Johnnie Hernandez, entrepreneur and former Fortune 50 executive

Jennifer Rock and Michael Voss have a shared, lifelong passion for storytelling. They have had the good fortune to work for and with companies that span industries and impact, where they have spearheaded global communication strategy and execution for more than 20 years. In 2013, they struck out on their own to form the communications agency ROCKdotVOSS, and to finish their debut novel – “B.S., Incorporated.” The novel has been called “a rich combination of comedy, ingenuity and sass” and was named one of the 10 Best Business Books of 2016 by WealthManagement.com. The book is available at Amazon, Barnes & Noble, iBooks and via RockAndVossBooks.com.

We are storytellers.

Our shared passion for captivating audiences goes back – way back – to when Jennifer published haikus in her first-grade newsletter, and Mike entertained other kids on the school bus with his creative fiction.

Not surprisingly, our jones for storytelling fueled our individual career paths, where we held roles in journalism, advertising, public relations, marketing and corporate communications. Along the way, we had the good fortune to work for and with companies that spanned industries and impact – from privately held start-ups to Fortune 50 powerhouses.

Our paths crossed at Best Buy, where – for more than a decade, we led the Internal Communications function and spearheaded all communications strategy and execution for the company’s 170,000 employees. We counseled and collaborated with senior executives, managed a network of global communication vehicles and events, and developed strategies to ensure the success of complex initiatives such as mergers and acquisitions, international expansion and corporate re-organizations. Somewhere in the midst of it all, we found time to effectively communicate four CEO transitions and build a groundbreaking internal social media program.

Then we struck out on our own, using our combined 40+ years of experience as strategists and communicators to form ROCKdotVOSS – an agency dedicated to helping tell your company’s story.

Because whether you’re looking to boost employee engagement, increase your close rate or entertain the other kids on the bus, it always starts with a great story.

of experience to bring to bear on any situation, problem or potential.
We can help the players break out from the pack with our “Afterburner Effect”.

A high performance aircraft must put out 110% power on take off. Once
at altitude, the pilot can throttle back to cruise speed, about 75% power.
So it is
with a Startup, max throttle at take off but in it for the long haul! You makeover a company by
making over the people. We mine the untapped potential of people.

Pensacola Business Radio: Spotlight Episode: Erik Hansen, Hansen Real Estate Team and Golfing for a Cause

I am a true Pensacola native, and have lived only one other place in my entire life. In 2001, my wife (Angie) and I moved to Orlando to start college and life as a married couple. I jumped into real estate while I was still in college at the University of Central Florida in Orlando back in 2003. After a year learning the real estate business and finishing up at UCF, I joined up with Keller Williams Realty in East Orlando and began really building my business. I partnered up with a Team Leader which catapulted me to the top in a very short time period. In the summer of 2013, after being back in Pensacola since 2009, I jumped back into real estate. In January 2016, I rejoined Keller Williams Realty with my entire team. Since that summer of 2013, I have built a successful real estate team that consistently produces in the TOP 10 of real estate teams in Pensacola. We currently have a Buyer Team Manager (Brent Scott), Buyer Specialist (Renee Decker, Stephanie Oliver, Jordan Simmons), a full time Transaction Coordinator (Bethany Christian), Listing Team Manager (Angie Hansen), Listing/Marketing Assistant (Mikayla Holmes), and an Inside Sales Agent (Courtney Zamudio). The team approach gives a level of service unmatched by the average single agent. Our staff and Buyer Specialists have the skills and experience to handle all your real estate needs! In 2016, our team closed 120 transactions and are on track for 180 transactions in 2017.

Looking to purchase your first home or downsizing into a smaller home? We can help. Thinking about investing in real estate to build wealth and a retirement? We have the plan for you. Seeking an experienced team to sell your home using a proven marketing approach? We offer a full service listing and marketing plan to get your home sold quickly, with the fewest problems and for the highest possible price. Selling real estate is a science and we have the system in place to get you the most money for your home!

In addition to being passionate about real estate, I love giving back to my community, traveling with the family to explore new destinations, watching football with friends in the fall, relaxing on Pensacola Beach in the summer, and occasionally playing (attempting to play) golf! My wife, son Peyton and I attend Cokesbury United Methodist Church here in Pensacola. I am the current Golf Tournament Committee Chariman and we recently raised over $10,000 for three local charities. My wife, Angie, is on the Board at Cokesbury Children’s Center, where our son attends pre-school. I am also a member of the Northeast Pensacola Sertoma Club, which raises over $50,000 for local charities every year at events such as HogFest in the Spring and Dragon Boat Festival in the summer. We have a ton of fun giving back to our community and want to teach our son the importance of faith, family and community involvement.

Contact The Hansen Team today to learn more about how we can best serve your Pensacola area real estate needs! (850) 377-2201 or send email to ContactHansenTeam@gmail.com. We guarantee to provide you with a professional level of service no matter what your needs, and we look forward to meeting with you soon!

Husband and wife team Benjamin and Cherylyn Murphy operate as the primary cinematographer and photographer respectively and they love working alongside passionate businesses that are looking to connect with their audience.

He primarily serves as MurphyWerx Productions Director. When he is not producing his own video, you can often find him working alongside larger production crews. When not out filming, Benjamin can be found flying his drone or exploring the outdoors either on foot or by boat.
Cherylyn’s passion for photography came about through her involvement in auto-cross and car shows with performance vehicles in her 20’s. Since then, her dedication to always be growing has given her the opportunity to create some amazing work for such brands as Better Built Toolboxes, MarineMax, and Wyndham Resorts. Cherylyn’s passion for growing doesn’t stop with her photography, she’s also actively involved in community organizations in addition to having a huge love for the outdoors.
