NEW YORK—DKC Public Relations, Marketing & Government Affairs—the former Dan Klores Associates—has expanded its geographic footprint by opening offices in Washington, DC, Los Angeles and Chicago.
DKC has established a presence in Southern California with the addition of Brittany Hershkowitz in its new Beverly Hills office. The office will work with companies whose work is focused in and around the entertainment sector, and capitalize on the national growth opportunities across the luxury, corporate, entertainment, travel, sports and media business categories. It will also work with existing corporate clients as Delta Air Lines, Moet & Chandon, Jaguar/Land Rover, Yahoo!, Atari, Showtime and Michael Eisner's portfolio of companies.
Prior to joining DKC, Hershkowitz was the director of public relations for Hype Creative Agency, and also held positions at the Rose Group and kpr-inc in Los Angeles.
To better the policy community in Washington, DKC has hired Megan Pollock to oversee DKC's new DC presence and manage media relations campaigns around legislative and regulatory issues and branding initiatives. She joins from the Consumer Electronics Association, where she has served as director of division and policy communications.
The firm has also taken office space in Chicago to better service new and existing clients such as Jim Beam Brands, BMO: Harris Bank, Kraft, The James Hotel and the national beauty retailer ULTA. DKC is in the process of appointing an executive to lead the Chicago office.
