CashmanKatz has made Eric Cavoli and Amanda Mueller partners in the firm. Cavoli has been SVP, group creative director at the agency since 2010. Mueller, who has been with CashmanKatz since 2003, has served as senior VP. In addition to the promotions, the agency has unveiled a simplified name and visual identity. Formerly Cashman + Katz Integrated Communications, it will now be known as CashmanKatz. According to agency co-founder Tony Cashman, the name change allows CK to be more intuitive and consistent in URLs, hashtags and social media handles, which aren’t always accommodating of punctuation. The agency has also added on a market research facility, content creation studio, government/public affairs practice and, most recently, corporate reputation management.
