RP Hires First External President


We’ve got big news!!

For 20 years, Reputation Partners has been known as a firm with deep expertise and focus in corporate reputation, employee/labor communications, crisis and issues management, and corporate social responsibility. That commitment is as strong as ever, and we also see ongoing opportunities for growth and diversification and deepening our strong management team.

This is why we’re thrilled to announce we have hired respected public relations industry leader Amy Littleton as our new president, effective August 15, 2022. Concurrent with Amy’s appointment, Nick Kalm, the firm’s founder and president will become CEO. Reputation Partners’ EVP and General Manager Andrew Moyer will continue in his current role.

Amy brings a wealth of experience in business-to-business (B2B) communications, marketing communications and brand activation to our service offering. For the past 19 years, Amy led KemperLesnik, building it into an admired national communications agency.

Most recently serving as the firm’s EVP and managing director, she managed the agency’s public relations operations, including a large staff and a multimillion-dollar P&L. During her tenure, Amy led many client relationships in insurance, financial services, professional services, consumer products and destinations. She also developed and led a strong team of public relations professionals which was with her for many years.

Nick shares, “I have long admired Amy’s leadership qualities, drive and success. Amy has a vision for growth, is a caring manager and embodies integrity, philosophies and priorities that align very well with my own. Her interests, skills and experiences will be key to continuing the growth trajectory at Reputation Partners.  Working with Andrew and me, I can’t wait to see what we will accomplish together.”  

Amy comments, “This is an exciting opportunity to help lead and grow one of the most renowned agencies in public relations and corporate communications. I have known and respected Reputation Partners, and Nick Kalm specifically, for many years. The agency has an incredible team and an impeccable reputation for delivering sound public relations counsel and execution and leading complex internal and external communications programs.”

What does this mean for current and future clients? First, Amy’s hire is an affirmation of our mission and commitment to providing each client with the very best partnership, service and counsel. With a long-term net promoter score of over 99%, our clients appreciate our commitment to client satisfaction will continue. Amy’s addition and leadership will only deepen our positive impact for each client.

What’s Amy most excited for? “Expanding RP’s expertise to include an even broader suite of solutions for clients across the U.S.”
