KCSA Strategic Communications is celebrating its 50th year this fall and the company is saying it’s the strongest one yet. KCSA has a roster of companies in the tech space, financial services, and life sciences, but the company has really come on strong in the cannabis space.
“Few firms in our industry can say that their 50th year in business has been their strongest. The entire KCSA team is responsible for our exceptional performance and this significant accomplishment,” said Todd Fromer, President & Managing Partner of KCSA. “The team we have built is second to none, offering diverse backgrounds and skillsets, as well as a high level of enthusiasm and a commitment to excellence. The partners of the firm—Jeffrey Goldberger, Lewis Goldberg and I—believe that KCSA’s rebrand, coupled with our commitment to incentivizing and rewarding talent, positions us for continued growth well into the next 50 years.”
The company offers both public relations and investor relations, representing companies like Acreage Holdings (which boasts former House Speaker John Boehner as a board member) and Aurora Cannabis (one of the largest cannabis companies in Canada). Other top cannabis clients include KushCo, iAnthus, Medicine Man and Golden Leaf.
KCSA said that the last 12 months leading up to the anniversary has been transformational for the firm, as it completed a brand refresh, as well as experiencing exceptional growth with an increase in revenue of 35 percent and more than 25 new executive hires in 2019.
The cannabis team is lead by Lewis Goldberg and Phil Carlson. Goldberg also produces the Green Rush weekly podcast along with KCSA Managing Director Anne Donohoe. The podcast has been running for a year.
“The Green Rush is the must listen to podcast for the business of cannabis. Lewis and Anne are both knowledgeable and ask smart, fun questions,” said Matt Hawkins of Cresco Capital Partners. Listeners should be warned that Goldberg delivers a heavy dose of “Dad jokes” within the show as the hosts talk to some of the leading executives in the industry.
