As 2017 comes to a close, we are looking back at the record-breaking and spectacular year Durée & Company has had! The agency’s 17th year of incorporation was marked by significant national awards our team received. Let’s take a look back at four of our awards from 2017:
- PR News’ Top Women in PR
We kicked off the year with an extraordinary national honor awarded to President and CEO, Durée Ross! PR News’ Top Women in PR list is comprised of the most influential women in PR from around the country – the ones who are innovating in their companies and in the industry. Durée received the award in New York City surrounded by fellow national industry leaders.
- Bulldog Awards’ Small Agency of the Year
The D&Co dynamos were awarded silver in the Small Agency of the Year category from Bulldog Reporter, a leader in industry media intelligence focusing on the public relations industry. Bulldog Awards honor the best and brightest globally, and they recognized our rock star team!
- Stevie Awards’ Entrepreneur of the Year
Durée Ross founded this agency in 1999 and has created and implemented numerous inventive public relations and marketing campaigns for an extensive client roster. As a testament to her years of experience and ingenuity, she was awarded the bronze award for Entrepreneur of the Year at The Stevie Awards for Women in Business hosted in New York City in November. The Stevies are the world’s premier business awards for female entrepreneurs, executives, employees and the organizations they run.
- Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation Honoree
Giving back is an integral part of the Durée & Company DNA and our company regularly volunteers and sponsors events in the community. This year, Durée Ross served as honoree during Crohn’s & Colitis Foundation’s 8th Annual Comedy Night. The foundation raises funds towards finding a cure for the painful and debilitating digestive diseases affecting more than 1.6 million children and adults across the United States.
