The PR Net 100, 2022: Droese PR

Suzanne Droese and her team showcase that relationships matter and impactful national agency work can be done outside of New York and LA. Dallas-based Droese Public Relations has a long history in luxury lifestyle and fashion PR, and this year saw the agency take the lead on major projects within retail, hospitality, consumer products and charity focus areas that target what they call the “caring consumer.” This consumer cares about craftsmanship, founder stories and an experiential lifestyle. For instance, DPR became the RH (formerly Restoration Hardware) Special Projects agency in partnership with Carfrae Consulting to successfully open new concepts in Dallas, Jacksonville and San Francisco in the last year. They also partnered with Major Food Group to spearhead the hospitality giant’s expansion into Dallas with three of their concepts, one being new to the hospitality group (Carbone, Sadelle’s and Carbone VINO). The agency coordinated two highly anticipated fundraising events – TWO x TWO for AIDS and Art benefiting amfAR and the Dallas Museum of Art, and the 60th annual Art Ball for the Dallas Museum of Art (Droese is a chair of both events).
