Automotive public relations and marketing agency Kahn Media announced expansions to its staff and client roster, as well as several key promotions.

Cory Burns, the agency’s second hire, has been promoted to vice president of Accounts after nine years of employment at Kahn Media. Burns is responsible for overseeing most of Kahn Media’s accounts and leading overall PR and marketing strategy for brands like MagnaFlow, Rolex Watch U.S.A., Dinan Engineering and more.

Franco Gutierrez has been promoted to vice president of the Creative department after leading Kahn Media’s art department and creative efforts including video production, graphic design and photography for the last five years. In Franco’s time at Kahn Media, he has helped direct and produce a documentary on Le Mans called “8 Meters” and created hundreds of pieces of content for clients around the world.

The Kahn Media team also added several new hires. Andrew Gessler, a photographer and videographer that started his career in the off-road and motorsports space, brings a motorsports content focus to the staff. Ben Roget joins the staff as an account executive, coming to Kahn from Lexus USA where he worked as a district manager after graduating from Lexus’ Management and Marketing training program.

Recent client additions include two shows – The Quail Motorcycle Gathering and The Quail, A Motorsports Gathering – both centered around The Quail Lodge & Golf Club in Carmel-by-the-Sea, California. Kahn is also working with Classic Car Studio, the custom shop featured on Velocity’s “Speed Is the New Black” television program. Also new to the roster is Niteo Products, which manages a portfolio of professional vehicle care brands and products, and Karges Fine Art, a dealer of California Impressionist and California Plein-Air art with galleries in Santa Monica and Carmel-by-the-Sea, California.
