FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE.
New Jersey. May 26, 2021: Cherry Hill Programs, the market leader in holiday and souvenir experiential photography, announces the promotion of Jonathan Jennings from IT Administrator to IT Support Manager for Cherry Hill Programs and Photogenic Inc. effective May 17, 2021.
John Wible, Director of Corporate and Field IT, comments, “I’m excited to congratulate Jonathan Jennings on his new role. Over the years, he has participated in various IT projects and had a heavy hand in the payroll hiring process since Fall of 2018. I look forward to watching Jonathan continue to grow within the organization.”
As an expert in Information Technology and computer systems, Jonathan has been an integral part of Cherry Hill Programs’ growth and success. Over his past three years with CHP, Jennings has proven to be an asset to the technology team and the company in its entirety. He’s played a pivotal role in system and software updates, IT audits, and overall improvement and implementation of policies and procedures for computer system operations and development. In his new role of IT Support Manager, Jonathan will oversee all aspects of IT support for Corporate and Field initiatives for the Holiday and Souvenir divisions.
Equally impressive to his technical knowledge and implementation ability is Jonathan’s personal connection to the generations of magic Cherry Hill Programs has provided clients, partners and Guests for decades.
Jonathan shares, “Ever since I was a child (with pictures to prove it!), my family and I waited eagerly for a chance to visit Santa in person. I did not, nor could I, have any idea what it took to make the annual holiday tradition possible. The magic of the experience was sufficient at that age. When my little brother heard the news about Santa, I became engrossed in an entirely different sort of magic – the magic of technology – which eventually led to this career opportunity.”
Jennings continues, “What we do at Cherry Hill Programs is no less impressive now that I see what is truly involved: the inner workings behind-the-scenes of bringing Santa and Bunny Magic to locations across North America – and now, to tourism attractions across the country through our Souvenir Division. I am honored to be part of a long-standing tradition that I shared in as a child. I am eager to put processes in place that will streamline the Guest experience and enable us to bring the magic for generations to come! I get to participate in Santa Magic regularly in the workplace – not many can say that!”
Jonathan’s approach to using technology to create holiday and souvenir photography magic will be an asset to Cherry Hill Programs and the longevity of capturing magic through Holiday and Souvenir photography.
