Jayne Morehouse, President

At Jayne & Company, LLC, we build beautiful, meaningful relationships for new, growing and established brands, products and personalities. With a rich history and special expertise in the professional salon and spa beauty channel, we collaborate with beauty, wellness and lifestyle brands to create memorable, engaging stories that differentiate them in the marketplace. Then, we share those stories via targeted traditional, digital and social media and directly via traditional marketing tactics, digital campaigns and personal outreach to the audiences who matter most throughout their distribution channels — from their distribution partners to end consumers to grassroots community enthusiasts who delight in sharing the stories.

Our point-of-difference comes from a strategic and interactive understanding of our partners’ businesses, coupled with an indelible passion for the growth of their brands in leadership, influence and sales. But most of all, our fun, entertaining and relevant communications process positions our clients’ brands as memorable, meaningful and authentic.

Liz Kaplow, President and CEO

For more than 25 years, Kaplow Communications has been changing conversations through innovative storytelling that helps consumers fall in love with clients’ brands.
Kaplow is known for its long client relationships: it has been Cosmetic Executive Women’s PR partner for 20 years and has worked with Shiseido and CVS/pharmacy Beauty for over 15 years. Other beauty and fashion clients include Laura Mercier, Amway’s Artistry, No Nonsense and PVH.

Kaplow’s programs for best-in-class beauty, fashion and lifestyle clients drive consumer behavior. When the agency introduced Warner’s new bra line as the solution for “sleevage,” the product flew off shelves and retailers had to double their orders. And when Kaplow launched Curl Secret for Conair, it sold out across the country before the first ad broke!

Kaplow continues to redefine the public relations practice — making it the communications agency of the future, today.
