Restaurant chain Denny’s has selected ICR as its AOR, handling corporate, financial, and crisis communications. Hill & Knowlton had been handling corporate, crisis, and consumer PR for Denny’s until this summer. At that time, CEO Nelson Marchioli was replaced with interim CEO Debra Smithart-Oglesby.
“When the CEO left, we weren’t interested in participating in a review,â€ Lori Robinson, SVP and director of marketing and business development at H&K told PRWeek (sub req’d).
The consumer work with Erwin-Penland is an expansion on previous projects the firm has done with Denny’s including menus and local support.
