BOSTON, April 19, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- KCSA Strategic Communications, a leading integrated communications firm specializing in public relations, investor relations and marketing services, announces two additions to its Boston office.  Eileen Newman, has been hired as Vice President of Communications and Paul Sagan is the new Vice President of Investor Relations.

Eileen Newman will establish an outsourced corporate communications practice aimed at entrepreneurial and high growth companies.  As the former VP of communications for Fidelity Investments' private equity portfolio, she provided senior level strategic communications counsel to diverse businesses across multiple industries and geographies.  At KCSA, she will provide strategic marketing and communications services:  public relations; merger and acquisition program management; branding, messaging and positioning; internal and external communications; and crisis communications.

Julia Tanen, Managing Director of KCSA's Boston office, "Boston is an entrepreneurial hot spot.  KCSA continues to add resources to meet the needs of this dynamic market.  Eileen brings a unique blend of functional expertise and business acumen that is specific to these environments.  She's a strong addition to our Boston team and complements our full array of marketing, public relations and investor relations services."

"Early-stage and high growth companies recognize that strong communications programs play an increasing role in building an organization's value.  By offering services tailored to the unique needs of this market segment, KCSA plays an important role in establishing the growth trajectory of area businesses," said Newman."

Paul Sagan has more than 20 years of experience in investor relations and corporate communications and served as a senior executive with several leading Wall Street and New England-based corporate communications agencies.  He has extensive experience in corporate and transactional communications and won numerous awards for corporate marketing communications programs.  Sagan held senior communications positions at Thermo Electron Corporation, Allmerica Financial and Camp Dresser & McKee.

"I'm excited to join KCSA, whose capabilities and service offerings are unique in the New England market," said Sagan.  "In today's economic climate, offering a comprehensive communications solution that integrates public relations, investor relations and marketing communications from a single dedicated source, rather than from multiple providers, makes sense for clients."

KCSA Chief Executive Officer Jeff Corbin added, "KCSA continues to expand its presence in key markets throughout the U.S.  Our expansion is a response to rapid changes in the business environment and the communications industry.  Eileen's unique skill set allows us to effectively address a key segment of the market.  Paul's broad experience in the life sciences, medical devices, financial services and high technology fields will be a strong asset to our clients as we continue to expand our practice."

In January, the firm announced the opening of its Chicago office which will be run by veteran reporter Stephane Fitch.  Mr. Fitch is the former Chicago Bureau Chief for Forbes Magazine.
