“The team at DEVENEY has been an extension of ours since day one, and that has been critical to the growing awareness and market entry for Bayou Rum. DEVENEY is flexible, adaptable, talented at media relations and training, and well, to put it quite ineloquently, they just ‘get it.’ Whether it’s been coordinating press trips, overseeing product and onsite photography, landing placements in target media, developing creative ways to share the Bayou Rum story or giving our key spokespeople situational media educations, we trust DEVENEY to deliver, and they haven’t let us down yet.”

Alison H. Walsh

Global Lead, PR and Digital  | Stoli Group USA (Bayou Rum)
“Communication with our DEVENEY reps is always timely and coherent. We appreciate the urgency when responding to our needs and issues. It is a true partnership. Jess, Savannah and Katelyn are invested in our success and care about helping us reach goals and solve problems. They are a creative, thoughtful group and a pleasure to work with.”

Joey Worley

Director of Food and Beverage  | Windsor Court Hotel
“DEVENEY played a key role in the successful reopening of the hotel in 2018. We had the pleasure of working with the Digital and PR teams who helped to set us up for success following the reopening.”

Kenny Jacques

General Manager  | AC Hotel New Orleans Bourbon/French Quarter Area
“I look to DEVENEY as a partner, rather than an agency or vendor. The relationship we've built over the past several years solidifies that. The account group is constantly thinking of fresh new ideas for Riverwalk, new audiences, new ways of reaching the community while, just as importantly, staying consistent with current tactics. It's a healthy combination of both - new ideas and staying on track with what we know is already working”

Laura Gurievsky

Marketing Manager  | The Outlet Collection at Riverwalk
“The minute we started talking to DEVENEY during the RFP process, we knew there was a good fit. That’s been critical since day one. We have a small team, and with DEVENEY, they’re really an extension of our team.”

Lori Tieszen

Senior Vice President and Chief Marketing Officer  | Stoli USA
“The agency at its core is a very unique, authentic, dynamic creative company. The very nature of the firm lends itself to understanding how to communicate in this way. That’s why we chose DEVENEY to help us manage a $7 billion enterprise.”

Stephen Perry

President & CEO  | New Orleans CVB
“Having DEVENEY as a trusted resource allows me to accomplish more and better lead and manage at the executive level. If a crisis is on the horizon, we rely on DEVENEY to give an informed and textured analysis of the situation, areas of concern and recommendations that fit our culture and support our business model.”

Cheryl Henry

Senior Vice President and Chief Branding Officer  | Ruth’s Chris Steak House
“Although DEVENEY has been recognized for their work with numerous awards and nominations, I think the most powerful measure of their success can be found in the vibrant hotels, restaurants and attractions across Louisiana. DEVENEY’s leadership, creativity and dedication helped preserve an industry vital to Louisiana (following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in 2010).”

Assistant Secretary  | State of Louisiana, Office of Tourism
