We’re excited to announce the expansion of our West Coast operation with the appointment of SVP Jenn DeMartino Callister to lead our LA office, along with the addition of Noah Gold and Marina Beck to the team.
We’re in a great position to accelerate our growth on the West Coast. We’ve recently been retained by LA clients including Syco Productions and FremantleMedia to handle a full-scale strategic communications campaign for the third season of FOX’s reality competition series THE X FACTOR, as well as Exploring the Arts, a not-for-profit organization founded by Tony Bennett and his wife, Susan Benedetto, to strengthen the role of the arts in public high school education. DKC is managing the communications campaign surrounding the organization’s first expansion into LA.
Other recent LA client wins include digital creative agency TVGla, as well as an expansion of the agency’s existing work with entertainment icon Michael Eisner to include The Eisner Foundation’s Eisner Prize for Intergenerational Excellence, designed to recognize excellence by an individual or a non-profit organization in uniting multiple generations to bring about positive and lasting changes in their community.
We also recently completed a significant campaign around the release of Clive Davis’s memoir, THE SOUNDTRACK OF MY LIFE, which debuted at #2 on the New York Times Best Sellers list. The West Coast campaign landed Clive on the cover of Billboard Magazine’s Power 100 issue and included appearances on Real Time with Bill Maher, EXTRA, KTLA, as well as sold out events at The Grammy Museum and legendary nightclub The Roxy.
