Kwittken PR - Kwittken News, Updates, Gossip and More
Kwittken & Company is a communications agency with offices in New York City, London, and Toronto. The agency was founded by Jason Schlossberg and current CEO Aaron Kwittken in 2006.
Kwittken’s practice areas include social media and content marketing, B2B, consumer and lifestyle, education, technology, finance services, and corporate strategy. With 65 employees, some of Kwittken’s most notable clients include American Express, Target, Better Homes and Gardens Real Estate, and FreshDirect. Along with top-notch clients, they have a company policy of giving back to the communities where they have offices by working with nonprofits such as The American Jewish Joint Distribution Committee, The American Lung Association, Caring Bridge, and Habitat for Humanity.
They are a kbs+ partner company and owned by MDC Partners. Kwittken was recently nominated for three Innovation and Insight SABRE Awards for their work in support of Pantone and Windstream and their employee engagement program. In 2014, The Holmes Report named Kwittken the best small agency of the year, and in 2013 they were listed as The Best Place To Work by PR Magazine.
Aaron Kwittken started his PR career in crisis management at the age of 19 in Washington DC. His career went through rapid upward revisions over the next 15 or so years, becoming a Sr. VP at Fleishman-Hillard by 25, an Exec VP managing 250 people by 29, and Euro RSCG North America CEO by 33. After all that, he opened the doors of Kwittken.
The firm’s partnership with kbs+ began in 2010 when Kwittken leadership felt PR trends moving so strongly toward the internet and digital offerings. This partnership brought increased opportunities and tools with social, research, strategy, CRM, planning, and advertising. There has been enough growth that in October 2015, they established a separate in-house agency to deal with beauty, hospitality, fashion, lifestyle, entertainment, and foods - calling it KFF (Kwittken Fame & Fortune).
