The world seems to be changing faster than ever.
New communication apps, social media platforms, Electric Vehicles (EVs), new infrastructure, instantaneous social justice and social shaming are all commonplace, with more change to come.
I created KatHouse Media (KHM) to be a better option for organizations looking for a one-stop-shop media relations firm to stay one-step-ahead. If you need help telling your story, and more importantly, telling it well, KHM can amplify your message through a combination of earned, traditional and digital print, and social media, tailored and targeted to your desired audience.
I have a long history of working for high-end automotive manufactures. Volvo, Toyota and Lexus, and 20+ years with Porsche Cars North America; first for the PR Agency of record and then internally as a spokesperson for Sports Cars, Brand Heritage and Motorsport.
The skills I honed launching new sports cars, leading national and international media programs for new models, test-drives, historical and motorsport events garnered millions of dollars in PR Value for Porsche each year.
Now with KHM, we can create unique experiences blended with interpersonal relationships to ensure your product and services are positioned in the best light, to the most relevant media outlets.
We are a small and nimble communications company offering consultation and timely support. While based in Atlanta, Georgia, KHM has access to world-class talent on an as-needed basis. Reach out today to learn how collaborating with KatHouse Media can help you realize your goals.

“Dave was such a great resource for both my book, Hurley: From the Beginning! and my movie, Hurley, that he is listed in the credits. The upcoming book on the history of Brumos got off to a great start thanks to his help with the Porsche Archives in Stuttgart.
We’ve shared many great experiences together, from our work with up-and-coming talent at each Porsche Young Driver Academy program and with the highly-regarded Porsche Rennsport Reunions since 2001. I’m confident KatHouse Media will be as successful as his past endeavors.“
Hurley Haywood - Legendary Porsche Driver / Brand Ambassador
"I have worked with Dave Engelman in many different capacities for more than a decade. A businessperson who wears innumerable hats, Dave has served as my peerless public relations contact with a premium global automaker for the better part of that time.
Dave is an incomparable industry expert who relishes multitasking. He has coordinated, scheduled, and led countless trips overseas that I have attended, acted as an invaluable resource for articles and publications that I have written – Dave has penned quite a few of his own – and he has taken countless pictures that I have used for publication. (And, as a side note that only serves to further demonstrate his aptitude, Dave has even selected quite a few outstanding restaurants along the way.)
Dave earns my highest recommendation. He’s a true gentleman and a consummate professional."

'Dave’s many years at Porsche, and those companies it does business with, put him in close contact with executives, insiders, major media, niche media, top athletes, celebrities, and customers at all levels. He was there when hard questions were asked and answered—and he was there for the discussions that came afterward.
But there’s another side of Dave that’s always stood out to me: His work ethic. Long after others retired to the bar, Dave made sure everything was handled before he went to sleep, and he was first to arrive in the morning to ensure they still were."
