“Judith is many things to her clients:
We go back a long ways but in every software vendor setting I've encountered her in, she always puts the vendor on the map. Results often get a lot of lip-service in marketing but Judith delivers for her clients/employers. Ask virtually any analyst in the tech space - they know Judith and they definitely know the vendors she supports."
- zealous in her advocacy for them
- exceptionally knowledgeable of the software markets they inhabit
- driven to deliver rapid, on-target branding
Brian Sommer, President, TechVentive

"You (Judith) are the best marketer out there. Bar none."
Albert Pang, CEO, Apps Run the World
"I like what Judith Rothrock does. She brings several analysts together for a day or two to listen to 3-4 vendors like Syspro. On their own, those vendors probably could not afford to do a full day briefing or longer."
Vinnie Mirchandani, "The portfolio analysis of industry events", Founder, Deal Architect Inc.
"If you want real, impactful results with the technology analyst community, then you need to work with a real expert – JRocket Marketing! We have worked with Judith Rothrock for several years now, and she has helped to put us on the map with relevant industry analysts that are key to our enterprise market. It would have taken us twice as long and cost at least twice as much to accomplish the great results we have received by working with JRocket. As a JRocket client, You will get top notch attention, strategy and messaging as well as access to the world-class analyst event, the Grape Escape."
Sue Watkins, Director of Marketing, Meridian Systems
"Judith, the whole country needs an espresso shot…keep being the fireball you are…we need many more."
Vinnie Mirchandani, Author, “The New Polymath” and CEO, Deal Architect (see 2010 analyst review)
"I believe that Judith brings great energy, tenacity and creativity to her work. Most importantly, the strategic marketing plans that she creates with her clients are both actionable and sustainable (how many consultants leave their clients truly independent)?"
Barry Wilderman, President, Wilderman Associates
