The leadership at Van Eperen Public Relations (VE PR), http://www.vepublicrelations.com, is honored to be joined by the Reverend Mansfield "Kasey" Kaseman as Vice President of Strategy and Development. Kaseman has 40+ years experience founding and administering non-profit organizations and strategically aligning sectors of the community to serve the interests of all people.
"I simply like the team Laura has employed for its professional competency and values that embrace integrity and genuine interest in our community," said Mansfield "Kasey" Kaseman, VE PR VP. "I look forward to engaging old and new friends in terms that will enhance business, as well as the quality of life at home, in the workplace and community-at-large."
Kaseman attributes his storied professional life to "sound administration and trust grounded in credible relationships and achievements serving the common good." His commitment to working on behalf of others began alongside Martin Luther King, Jr. in the 1960s as he fought for civil rights. He was a Pastor and Community Minister within churches and communities in Tallahassee, FL, New Haven, CT and Dover, MA before arriving in greater Washington, DC.
From 1979 to 2005, Kaseman served as a Pastor, Community Minister and Executive Director with Community Ministries of Rockville, Maryland. At Community Ministries, Kaseman served a wide spectrum of human needs including the Emergency Assistance Program, Elder Services, Latino Outreach, shelters, and transitional homes. He founded and maintained the Caregiver's Coalition of Rockville consisting of private and public human service program directors and public officials. He also assisted in the formation of the Rockville Senior Center, Manna Food Center, Habitat for Humanity in Montgomery County, and the Human Services Commission of Rockville.
Later in 2009, a highly anticipated community healthcare clinic is expected to open up in Kaseman's name in Rockville. Click here to see a recent article published on the Kaseman Health Clinic: http://www.gazette.net/stories/07112009/montnew84946_32546.shtml.
"Kasey brings a truly unique and inclusive approach to VE PR and our clients," said Laura Van Eperen, VE PR CEO. "He's offering additional insights on Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) practices and health disparities to further underscore VE PR as the go-to firm in these areas."
Since 2005 Kaseman has served as Senior Vice President for Health Disparities and Community Service with Capital Technology Information Services (CTIS). In this capacity he initiated programs contributing to CTIS winning state and regional awards for its leadership in healthcare and community service.
Throughout his career, Kaseman has received countless accolades, including "Citizen of the Year" by at least two Rockville civic and business organizations. He serves on regional and national boards, including the Shalem Institute for Spiritual Formation, the Low Vision Center and the Civilizations Exchange and Cooperation Foundation. Kaseman holds numerous degrees and certificates, including a B.S. from Westmar College, a B.D. from Andover Newton Theological School and an S.T.M. from Yale University.
