Kathleen Kaiser Named “Publicist of the Year” by Book Publicists of Southern California
Kathleen Sexton Kaiser, president of Kathleen Kaiser & Associates, received notification on September 15 that she has been named “Publicist of the Year” for 2016 by the Book Publicists of Southern California (BPSC). The award will be given at a ceremony on October 13 at the Sportsman Lodge in Studio City, CA. This is the 22nd year for the Irwin Awards.
“I was quite shocked by the phone call from Irwin Zucker of BPSC,” said Kaiser. “I’ve been doing publicity since the age of sixteen and have always stayed in the background. It’s quite a different sensation to be in the spotlight. I’m flattered by the award.”
Beginning as a music journalist turned publicist, Kathleen Kaiser’s career spans over 40 years of involvement in the most exciting industries of her generation. From rock and roll in the ‘60s and ‘70s to the digital/internet revolution of the late ‘80s and ‘90s, she has been a marketing professional and event producer for Fortune 100 companies, international trade associations, small startups, and nonprofits.
