Papadopoulos, Van Iden named associates

Annett Wolf and Lisa Kasteler of the PR firm Wolf-Kasteler have upped company VPs Christina Papadopoulos and Amy Van Iden to associates and, accordingly, changed the company name to Wolf-Kasteler & Associates to reflect the promotions.

Papadopoulos, who began her career in PR at Rogers & Cowan a decade ago, came to Wolf-Kasteler’s L.A. office in 1995, then moved to N.Y. the following year to open the firm’s East Coast office.

Van Iden joined Wolf-Kasteler in an entry-level capacity in 1991. In 1993, she left to become a publicist at Susan Patricola Public Relations, only to return to Wolf-Kasteler two years later. In 1997, she became a VP of the firm.

“We’re very proud of the growth and accomplishments of both Christina and Ame,” Wolf said. “They are tremendously important to us and a source of great strength within the company. As the company has grown, they have grown and we look forward to many more years together.”

Wolf-Kasteler was founded by Wolf in 1989 as a boutique agency focused on actors and filmmakers. Clients include Nicolas Cage, Cate Blanchett, Rene Russo, Ashley Judd, Dennis Quaid and Alan Cumming.
