Mr. Feintuch, formerly managing partner, public relations, with KCSA Strategic Communications, left the firm in late December to start the new organization. Feintuch Communications acquired KCSA's equity interest and membership in ECP Global Communication (www.ecpglobal.com), a 20-year old international alliance of independent PR firms. Mr. Feintuch serves on the organization's board.
The new firm, focusing on B-to-B and B-to-C communications campaigns, specializes in four categories where the management team has deep expertise -- technology, financial services, healthcare/life sciences and advertising/media. Initial clients include 3rd Dimension Technologies, Basex, Bixby Energy, GAIN Capital/FOREX.com, Marketcetera and Tervela.
Joining Mr. Feintuch as a senior vice president is Steph Johnson, formerly with San Francisco-based Page One PR. Ms. Johnson brings 15 years of public relations and communications experience to clients in the professional services, technology and healthcare sectors. Focused heavily on the financial services industry, she enjoys a strong reputation with software vendors, market data providers, liquidity venues and end-user financial firms.
"We are committed to delivering integrated public relations and marketing programs that generate revenue and help to build our clients' brands -- all managed by hands-on senior practitioners," said Mr. Feintuch.
"For start-ups and companies targeting North America, we've also developed a set of turnkey professional services that allow them to enter our market quickly and efficiently -- everything from legal, accounting, administrative, HR and recruitment to business development and distribution services. Our strategic relations platform focuses on our clients' business needs -- regardless of whether they are seeking a full-scale PR program, project support or help in setting up a new business entity."
During his 22-year tenure at KCSA, Mr. Feintuch developed and implemented hundreds of successful client campaigns for prominent organizations including 17-year client, Arbitron, IEEE, International Paper and BellSouth as well as many domestic and international emerging companies. He also created the firm's advertising and media practice, serving a wide array of traditional and out-of-home media companies, and its global tech group, with a heavy emphasis on emerging technology from Israel.
Previously, he served as director, corporate communications for Scanvest Ring, a marketer of enhanced 9-1-1 automatic call distribution technology. Early in his career, Mr. Feintuch served as news assignment editor for WCBS-TV in New York City. He was also a reporter and anchorman for several New Jersey radio stations.
Mr. Feintuch earned his bachelor's degree in television and radio from Brooklyn College, City University of New York. He is an active member of the Public Relations Society of America, the former chair of its technology section and past co-chair of its annual T3 technology conference. He also serves on the advisory board of Quu, an interactive media technology company that has developed a complete, turnkey solution for the radio industry.
Prior to her work with Page One PR, Ms. Johnson managed her own PR consulting business for six years, where she functioned as a global public relations director for multiple clients including worldwide brands such as Citibank, Coopers & Lybrand and Hewlett-Packard and start-ups such as Tervela, Volante and Kx Systems.
Ms. Johnson spent her early career working for several independent integrated marketing firms in New York City including Spring O'Brien, KCSA and Elizabeth Howard & Company, where she focused on promoting financial services and technology companies in the US and the UK.
