We’ve received confirmation that Hank Cohen, who has served as CEO of KSL Media and spent nearly a quarter-century with the bi-coastal agency, is leaving to set up his own small practice. No word yet on what his new shop entails, but Cohen’s duties will now be assumed, effective immediately, by Kal Lebowitz, chairman of KSL who founded the 130-strong agency in 1981. In addition to Cohen’s departure, we’ve also been told that president David Sklaver, who has been with KSL for nearly a decade, has also turned in his resignation at the agency. Sklaver’s move, though, was purely coincidental according to those in the know.
KSL, which also houses space in Las Vegas and Miami, works with clients ranging from UGG to Guitar Center.
