Ross Also Recently Honored by March of Dimes Foundation as a Woman of Distinction

Durée Ross, president and founder of Fort Lauderdale-based full-service public relations, marketing and special events firm Durée & Company, Inc., has received the prestigious honor of being named one of PR News’ 2016 Top Women in PR, a nationwide award, and the only woman recognized from South Florida.

PR News' Top Women in PR list is comprised of the most influential women, the ones driving the agenda for the industry and in their companies — women who have made bold advances in managing crises, developing brand messages, protecting and building brand reputations and creating content for digital platforms, for their own organizations or for clients.

The awards luncheon will take place on Jan. 24, 2017, at The Grand Hyatt in New York City. Nationwide, only 82 women were selected as PRNews’ Top Women in PR honorees.

In addition, on Dec. 9, 2016, Ross was honored as a March of Dimes Woman of Distinction at the organization’s Women of Distinction Luncheon at the Hilton Bahia Mar in Fort Lauderdale. These women are the present and future innovators, influencers, philanthropists, and entrepreneurs who make the South Florida community a better place. March of Dimes’ mission is to improve the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

“I am honored to be a recipient of both of these esteemed awards, one in the national professional arena, and the other for making a difference my local community,” Ross said. “With over 20 years of experience in the PR industry, I am pleased to continue to provide unsurpassed PR services to clients, as well as dedicate my time to the South Florida community.”

Ross, who launched her own PR agency, Durée & Company, at the age of 24 in 1999, has since been setting the bar for excellence in PR, serving the corporate, agency and non-profit arenas for local, national and international clients. An award-winning entrepreneur, she has been nationally recognized for her ability to manage crises, develop brand messages, protect and build brand reputations and create content for digital platforms. She has mastered the “new” rules of public relations and marketing, utilizing new and expanding social media platforms – paving the way for future generations of PR professionals.
