NEW YORK: KCSA Strategic Communications opened the doors to its Chicago office and appointed Stephane Fitch, former Chicago bureau chief of Forbes, to head it up as MD.
Fitch will bring on board his 12 years of experience while at Forbes, where he covered financial, investment, and real estate news.
“I'd like to see KCSA grow a lot in the next five years,” said Fitch. “My main role is to establish offices outside of NY and bring their special brand to other cities and to clients that haven't had access to them before. One of the things that KSCA's clients are asking the firm to do is to help them make sense of an incredibly fast changing landscape and I can be a thoughtful judge as to what's going on.”
He will report to Jeff Corbin, CEO of KCSA. In addition to Chicago, the agency has offices in NY, Boston and Tel Aviv.
Fitch was at Forbes from 1998 to 2010, having worked as a reporter in NY, writer in Los Angeles and head of the magazine's European bureau before becoming Chicago bureau chief. He also served as a reporter at Dow Jones & Co. from 1996 to 1998. In addition, Fitch was a regular panelist on weekly business TV series “Forbes on Fox.”
KCSA specializes in public relations, investor relations, and marketing services and its clients include VSP, Marchon3D, Merrill, Soda Stream and 4Kids.
