In addition, Zapwater promoted Kassy Reiff to Senior Publicist. As a key member of the hospitality team, Kassy works on Texas de Brazil, RA Sushi, Blue Plate Catering, Park Grill, Rhapsody, and aja at the dana hotel & spa. Kassy began her public relations career at Red Chicago, a Chicago-based boutique agency, where she worked with Lettuce Entertain You Enterprises' Ben Pao Chinese Restaurant, Robbins Bros.
