Durée Ross, president and founder of Fort Lauderdale-based full-service public relations, marketing and special events firm Durée & Company, announced that Chrissy Cox has been promoted to the position of vice president of the firm. She previously served as an account director at Durée & Company.
Cox, who has close to 15 years of both agency and in-house experience working with lifestyle brands, joined the Durée & Company team in January 2016 after moving to South Florida from Chicago. In her role as vice president, she puts her Midwestern sensibility and strong work ethic into practice, executing successful campaigns for Durée & Company’s diverse set of clients.
Before joining Durée & Company, Cox oversaw the public relations and marketing efforts for the North American flagship property of Sofitel Luxury Hotels, located in Chicago. Working with this French-based, global hotel chain only deepened her love for all things fashion, travel and culture. Prior to that, Chrissy was part of the Chicago team of the national boutique agency Wagstaff Worldwide, where she managed a number of high profile hospitality accounts.
“Chrissy is a consummate professional and extraordinary leader,” said Ross. “She provides the highest level of service to our clients, and is a true reflection of our firm’s dedication to excellence. I am pleased to announce her promotion and am honored to work with her on a daily basis.”
“I’m very proud to serve as the vice president of Durée & Company,” said Cox. “I enjoy maintaining team focus, building client relationships and delivering creative campaigns. I look forward to continuing to provide premier services to our clients.”
