Liz Kaplow, President and CEO

For more than two decades, KAPLOW has been changing conversations through innovative storytelling that helps consumers fall in love with clients’ brands.

Kaplow’s programs for best-in-class beauty, fashion and lifestyle clients drive consumer behavior. When they launched Curl Secret for Conair, the device quickly sold out at retail — before advertising began! And, when it introduced Olga and Warner’s new bra line as the solution for “sleevage,” the product flew off shelves. Other beauty and fashion clients include Cosmetic Executive Women, Laura Mercier, Revive, Shiseido, St. Ives, Timex and No Nonsense and CVS/pharmacy Beauty.

Mid-sized and independent, KAPLOW is nimble and flexible in today’s ever-changing communications landscape. The agency’s fully integrated programs — including traditional media relations, events, social media, digital marketing and branded content — fuel consumer conversations wherever they occur and help create an emotional bond with client brands.
