Kim Lichtenstein is the founder and co-owner of k101, a full service PR and Marketing Agency which launched in 2002. Fresh out of college she got her start as Senior Editor of Jezebel Magazine, an Atlanta-based fashion and lifestyle publication, and has secured long-term relationships with key local and national media ever since. Her career has positioned her on both sides of the media, so she is familiar with what it takes to get a brand noticed. Kim has created a formula that allows her clients to garner the attention of the media and public through unique PR/marketing strategies - based on her own experiences. A former Atlanta radio personality, she has perfected her relationship with the microphone, now a "must have" item in her purse. Her wide ranging experience includes hosting parties for ABCís "The Bachelorette", MTV's "The Real World", and acting as an official celebrity host for the "GQ Fresh Dressed Awards". To round out her expertise, Kim also serves as a Trend Expert for the TBS hit show "Movie and a Makeover" (in between meetings).
If you think that busy schedule would max out her dance card, not quite. Over the past four years k101 has coordinated product launches and placement for a number of brands, including The Coca-Cola Company for Tab Energy, represented top celebrities and brands like Jermaine Dupri and Cartier and placed clients in high profile publications like People Magazine, VIBE, SOURCE, BET, Menís Health, Business Traveler Magazine, Lucky Magazine and more. Because Kim has been working in an entrepreneurial environment for many years, she is familiar with the importance of collaboration and attention to detail, and has honed the ability to work effectively while juggling all aspects of a brand campaign. So if you aspire to be "in the know" look no further than Kim Lichtenstein. Kim lives in Chicago and runs k101 Agency's Chicago office.
