Since 1997, Judi Haber has helped propel the growth of MORE Advertising—transforming a two-person, one-office operation into one of the foremost women-led marketing and creative agencies in New England. While guiding MORE’s evolution into a highly respected, mission-based agency, Judi has leveraged both her academic background (including her BS from UMass Amherst), and her non-stop volunteer activities in human and social service.
At MORE, Judi has directed virtually all of the agency’s public and non-profit communications initiatives. She’s produced award-winning, statewide campaigns to drive awareness for critical public and social issues—such as the opioid epidemic, tobacco cessation, healthcare for the underserved, the dangers of vaping, AIDS/STD prevention, marijuana education, employment for people with disabilities, veterans services, and statewide workforce development, to name a few.
Judi is a welcome and valued presence at all levels of state government, including the Executive Office of Health and Human Services, the MA Department of Public Health, the University of Massachusetts Medical Center, the Attorney General’s Office, and many other health-related institutions. She is currently working on a campaign supporting Governor Baker’s initiative to address sexual assault and domestic violence.
Among Judi’s most notable (and personally gratifying) successes have come from a series of opioid awareness campaigns she’s produced for the MA Bureau of Substance Addiction Services, including #StateWithoutStigma, Make the Right Call, and Stop Addiction Before It Starts. In an interview with WCVB Channel 5’s Chronicle, Judi said, “If I’ve helped saved the life of just one person, I know I’ve done my job.”
Judi also sits on the board of two child-serving NGOs: The John M. Barry Boys and Girls Club of Newton as the former President of the Board and now a member of their Advisory Council and the Hyde Square Task Force in Jamaica Plain where she chairs their Resource Development Committee and Annual Making Change Happen Breakfast. As a proud member of Women for UMass, Judi is a member of the Event Sub-Committee.
