  • “Our Company and I in particular worked with CooperKatz and their staff of PR executives for many years. Our industry is subject to largely compressed business cycles and periods of great sporadic media and public relations volatility, including late-breaking industry news and service provider implications. CooperKatz was consistently responsive and creative during times of immediate response need, as well as strategic in both their planning and forward thinking for upcoming events, opportunities and exposure management. We were fortunate to have them as a valued team partner and by their efforts and contribution we were clearly more visible and successful.”
    Mark A. Steber, Chief Tax Officer, Jackson Hewitt Tax Service
  • “ANA – the Association of National Advertisers – has been a client of CooperKatz since its founding 17 years ago. To say the least, our start was unique – as CooperKatz had its original office inside the ANA. We grew close because CooperKatz brought a wonderful blend of creativity, strategic insight, deft writing and outstanding production capabilities. CooperKatz and ANA have grown together, provided mutual support, and made each other better.”
    Bob Liodice, President and Chief Executive Officer, Association of National Advertisers (ANA)
  • “CooperKatz has been our valued communications partner for almost 10 years, and brings creativity and passion for our brand to their work. The team’s knowledge expands beyond pure public relations, and into broader marketing areas like digital and social. The team has consistently delivered results for our product launches and partnerships, and has supported our participation in industry events. CooperKatz is committed to help us grow our position as the leader in heart rate monitoring and fitness assessment technologies.”
    Gina Pilnacek, Director of Marketing, Polar USA
  • “We are routinely amazed at the quality of service CooperKatz provides Coldwell Banker Real Estate.  Along with having a remarkable group on our account who are completely committed to the success of the Coldwell Banker brand, CooperKatz continues to meet its lofty KPI goals in raising awareness for the brand and driving traffic to our coldwellbanker.com platform.  Public relations is a major part of the brand’s overall marketing mix, and CooperKatz has played a major role in the creation and successful implementation of every major brand initiative.  The trust we have in CooperKatz is immense and we are thrilled to have them as a partner.”

    If you knew Andy Cooper, you know what a force he was in the public relations industry. Andy and I met in graduate school and then became colleagues at Burson Marsteller, where we each, in turn, led the Creative group and where Andy eventually became President of the New York Office. In 1996, given our long friendship and shared ideals, we decided to follow our entrepreneurial instincts and opened CooperKatz & Company. In 2013, after a 22-month battle, Andy passed away from brain cancer. […]

  • Celebrating Continued Feminism on International Women’s Day

    Photo credit: She Runs It International Women’s Day means many things to many people. For some, it may mean supporting women’s rights. For others, it may mean celebrating femininity. For the official organization behind the celebration day, it’s a “global day celebrating the social, economic, cultural and political achievements of women.” For me, it’s about appreciating who I am, the opportunities that I have and to be aware of where my gender still has to […]

    by dsonnenburg@cooperkatz.com on February 22, 2017 at 4:46 pm

    I get it. I really do. Choosing an agency is like a romance. Sometimes, it’s a whirlwind “love at first sight” that feels like a match made in heaven. Other times, it’s a slow courtship. Or even a broken engagement that leaves you afraid to love again. You may realize you’re just not ready to commit. That’s ok. Take all the time you need. Or move ahead with abandon, with the one you’ve chosen. But you know what? “Dump” the other agencies […]

    In 1979, shortly after I joined Burson-Marsteller, the company was bought by one of the leading ad agencies, Young & Rubicam. 1980 was a presidential election year and also the year we held our first joint annual meeting. At that gathering, Alex Kroll, Head of Y&R USA, made an observation, a prediction and a plea that I clearly have remembered over the years. He noted a growing trend in political advertising toward negative comments about the opposition vs. positive policy and […]
