Back on Dec. 30, 1999, public relations and marketing agency Durée & Company was born. Founder Durée Ross had a fervent desire to make her agency unlike the others: one that possessed true passion about its clients, work and results. Today, 21 years feels great at our Fort Lauderdale and Aspen-based agency, and we just keep getting better.
With 12 fantastic team members, a spectacular list of clients, many awards, a stunning Fort Lauderdale office, and much more, we at Durée & Company are extremely grateful for our continued success and look forward to a bright future.
While 2020 has been a challenging and interesting year for the entire world, thankfully, our agency has thrived. Looking back at 2020, we’re pleased to list our milestones from this year:
