There are clients and then there are relationships. The relationship that Mr. Alan’s has formed with CKC Agency has been evolving from the beginning, and can be described as a non-stop rollercoaster ride of excitement, daring accolades, creative campaigns, and amazing publicity that combined have contributed greatly to our growth and our never ending stride to be the best we can be. They are an agency where the right brain and the left brain align, whether it be achieving media exposure beyond what we thought possible or helping a crazy snowball idea to move all the way up the hill and down the mountain. This team gets it, and will get it for you! It's tough to describe CKC Agency as just a PR firm...they are so much more.
Kris Holowicki Director of Marketing, Mr. Alan's
My favorite PR firm in the D! Your agency is a destination when considering firms that charge the hill to build a brand!

CKC Agency is much more than a typical public relations firm. It’s a full service, out-of-the-box creative think tank that can take your brand to the next level. Their efforts have garnered hundreds of thousands of dollars in traditional media value for Art Van Furniture!

If there were an alternative name for Carolyn Krieger Cohen’s PR company, it could very well be HWC (Handle With Care). CKC Agency’s team is professional and cares a great deal about their clients. They always know when, where and how to communicate a message on behalf of businesses like mine…and at fees that are competitive. I have a great deal of respect for CKC Agency and thoroughly enjoy my relationship with them. It’s their personal touch that inspires me to use them as much as possible. I won’t go anywhere else.

I love working with the CKC team. They’re smart, creative, accessible and responsive, which makes our collaboration a pleasure. I’m not “managing my agency”; I’m partnering with experienced communications professionals who care about the outcomes of the work we’re doing. And they’re fun, which actually matters to me.

It took me many years to find the perfect fit for our clinic. For many years, we had an in-house PR/Community Relations manager who was an integral part of Birmingham Maple Clinic and handled all aspects of our marketing and community involvement. After she passed away I struggled to find someone who could replace her and comfortably fit in with our clinical staff in a relevant, personally meaningful way. I interviewed many PR firms and individuals who came highly recommended - and no one seemed right…until I met Carolyn Krieger-Cohen. She possessed the energy, the warmth, the excitement, the focus and the drive I was looking for and had not found in the many others I had met and interviewed.
Carolyn and her group of professional colleagues at CKC have provided ongoing opportunities, media relationships, TV and radio interviews, and more so that Birmingham Maple Clinic remains a highly visible resource for mental health information, education and treatment. CKC has lived up to my extremely high expectations and I knew we had found our perfect match when I met Carolyn – and I continue to feel that way all these years later!
Lori Kanat Edelson, LMSW, LMFT Clinic Owner, CEO Birmingham Maple Clinic
Our experience with CKC Agency was absolutely wonderful! Carolyn and her team were so easy to work with and integrated with my team seamlessly. CKC agency was able to take the projects we gave them and really produce great PR and visibility for us. Their strong relationships with media were so evident and impressive resulting in fabulous coverage and PR for Weight Watchers.

I’m still basking in the magical CKC dust your team left behind at the Motor City Comic Con. Thanks to you and your exceptional team, Motor City Comic Con not only celebrated our 25th year anniversary, we also celebrated our most successful show in 25 years. Prior to hiring CKC Agency, Motor City Comic Con endured a series of crises from the previous year. Today, we are the largest, #1 pop culture event in Michigan, due in large part to the CKC Agency’s ability to strategize, develop and communicate our new and much-improved story to audiences near and far. I am so impressed by your team’s ability to quickly understand our complex and multifaceted industry so quickly. You “get it” and we’re not always easy “to get”. I appreciate your efforts and for making our event your own. You really exceeded our expectations over and over throughout the process and throughout the event! As long as I’m in this position, I can promise you that CKC Agency will be a part of our team.
Miriam Kruger Executive Director, Motor City Comic Con
I have made many business decisions, good and bad, but I can’t think of a better one than my relationship with CKC Agency. I look forward to what comes next!

CKC Agency’s work on the WYCD Hoedown gave us unprecedented exposure in the media, which absolutely benefited not only our event but the CBS brand. CKC Agency knows TV, print and radio and has connections in metro Detroit no one can match.
Tim Roberts Operations Director, CBS Radio Detroit
From the first day of our partnership, CKC made The Rattlesnake Club feel like we were their only client! Their dedication was ever-present in planning our biggest event, The Rattlesnake Club’s 25th-anniversary gala. It was an enormous success due to the CKC team’s guidance, support, creative ideas and connections. They kept us on track with an all-important event planning timeline and assisted in compiling the biggest guest list I have ever seen. The print materials were beautifully designed. Media coverage was second to none. This agency’s innovative approach helped us execute a truly world-class event. I adore working with every single person on the CKC team and would highly recommend their services.
Alexandria Franz Marketing Director, Rattlesnake Club
In the age of social media, mobile apps and a constantly changing seascape of television and radio, there are more ways than ever to get a message to an audience…if you know how to navigate the waters. Carolyn Krieger-Cohen is the ultimate media captain. She and her team understand the importance of eliminating noisy clutter and focusing on core ideas. The real feat is how they deliver campaign messages with fresh creative concepts, vital to getting people to pay attention on all mediums. Success in public relations is personal relationships and no one gets this more than Carolyn. It’s great to work with this true professional and the CKC Agency team who care so much about the work they do on behalf of their clients.

Every now and then, if you’re lucky, you cross paths professionally with someone and the connection almost instantly transcends business. That has been my experience with Carolyn-Krieger Cohen. Her performance for us at Garden Fresh Gourmet has been absolutely first rate, but our relationship with her is more than that. She is truly a friend to our company, truly something special.
Dave Zilko Former Vice Chairman, Garden Fresh Gourmet
Carolyn is creative and comfortable thinking outside the box. She not only truly understands her clients, she understands their needs and delivers results. CKC Agency’s reputation, integrity, and devotion open more doors and allow for more opportunities than any firm out there!

When I started the Center for Sexual Wellness, I had no idea how to inform my patients or the public that there were medical solutions for women experiencing sexual dysfunction. CKC Agency immediately had wonderful ideas. Before I knew it, my website was beautifully written, designed and functional, I was booked regularly on television, at speaking engagements and special events, and I was interviewed and quoted in major articles in local and national magazines, including Good Housekeeping and Esquire, as well as on numerous websites. Everyone on CKC’s exceptional team was extremely responsive and a true pleasure to work with. As a physician with no training in marketing, I am eternally grateful for all of their help and expertise. I attribute the success I have had in large part to CKC Agency.
