Epoch 5 Public Relations, named Best PR Firm on Long Island for eight consecutive years, announced the promotion of 13-year PR veteran, Kathleen Caputi, to senior vice president.
Kathleen has more than 20 years of experience heading up award-winning marketing programs for a wide variety of clients in the legal, residential and commercial real estate, accounting, transportation, architecture and aging services industries.
Kathleen is also responsible for the development and implementation of publicity campaigns and client websites and the research and writing of special projects. She has provided publicity for grand openings, special events, nonprofits and educational institutions. Her ability to shape stories that capture a reporter’s interest has resulted in continued placements in prominent publications and electronic media for her clients.
Throughout her career, Kathleen has received a number of prestigious industry awards – including a MarCom Gold, Summit International Award and APEX Writing Award – for her work on “Welcome Aboard: A History of Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty,” a coffee table book that chronicled the growth of the Daniel Gale Sotheby’s International Realty organization. She was also honored by the Public Relations Professionals of Long Island (PRPLI) with its 2013 “PR Campaign of the Year” award for her PR efforts on the inaugural opening of an international photo exhibit (Journeys to School) that premiered at the United Nations Visitors Centre in NYC. The exhibit documented the difficult and sometimes treacherous paths taken to school by children around the world.
Prior to Epoch 5 Public Relations, Kathleen worked for 10-plus years with Cablevision Systems Corporation in the company’s marketing, creative services and human resources departments. During her tenure she conceived and wrote direct mail, newspaper and video advertising campaigns and contributed feature articles for Cablevision’s consumer magazine. Ultimately, she managed the company’s entire employee communications effort, including print, video, live television and employee focus groups.
As a freelance writer and editor, she wrote and consulted for the global human resources group at Avon, edited various academic texts for graduate education programs and was a regular feature writer for a national trade magazine.
