  • Excellent Service!

    I recently finished a six-month marketing campaign where my primary efforts were through KMR Communications and Katherine Rothman. I have to say that KMR was consistent and responsive from the start and quickly secured placements for my plastic surgery practice in national celebrity publications and on nationally syndicated radio talk shows and online placements.
    My six months were full of quality exposure at a level that I could not obtain locally in Nashville, Tennessee. I still have patients that come to my office having found me in these national publications and on radio interviews. The marketing materials I gained from my time with KMR have really helped with my web presence and in-office marketing. Whether you have a time-limited marketing effort planned or need a long-term partner for media relations, I highly recommend KMR and Katherine Rothman.

Meet the CEO – Katherine Rothman

Katherine Rothman attended American University in Washington, D.C. and New York University, earning a B.A. in Communications. Shortly after graduation, she joined Sheila Feren Communications in Manhattan where the client roster included broadcast personalities and TV talk shows, as well as news magazines. Ms. Rothman was instrumental in procuring media coverage for clients, as well as acting as their spokesperson to the press. While there, she was responsible for coordinating movie screenings and premieres for the Hallmark Hall of Fame, as well as aligning her clients with high profile charitable organizations.

To further hone her PR skills, Ms. Rothman moved on to Susan Blond Group, Inc. with accounts such as Capital EMI Records, Janet Jackson, The Hard Rock Cafe and singer Carly Simon. After a period of time, she decided to shift gears to consumer public relations, which would include beauty, health, fitness and lifestyle clients. She perfected her skills in this sector as Senior Vice President of Amanda Uhry Public Relations, where she was responsible for implementing creative public relations campaigns for a client list that tripled within 18 months of Ms. Rothman’s arrival at the firm.

After years of perfecting her skills in the health, beauty and fitness sector and realizing additional successes, Katherine started her own Manhattan-based public relations firm, KMR Communications. Her goal is to remain fully committed to these specialized niches of health, beauty and fitness PR all while providing the utmost personal attention to each individual client. To ensure this, the company is, and will remain a boutique agency, with Ms. Rothman personally involved with each account.

In its first year, KMR Communications was named one of the top 50 health PR firms in the United States. Recently, KMR was cited as one of the top three beauty PR firms in the nation by the respected public relations trade resource, Ms. Rothman was the only public relations professional selected to speak at the 11th Annual International Society of Hair Restoration meeting. Katherine has also lectured at The Greater New York Physician’s Expo, as well as the Medi-Spa Expo in New York City.

The story does not end here. Katherine has appeared on CBS Sunday Morning, CNN, Fox and has been quoted and featured in publications such as The Wall Street Journal and The New York Times, among several others. The National Register named Katherine on their Who’s Who list of executives and professionals, and Fempreneur Magazine selected her as one of its top 30 female entrepreneurs in the nation. Our New York PR firm is ready to discuss media relations and campaigns with you.
