THE BIG STORY.

These are the  case studies that make us proud. The work that got the best results, engagement, and inspired legions of fans to click, share and fall in love with the brands we represent.
“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
“DEVENEY helped us in several capacities, including strategic planning, media relations, media training and crisis management. During some of our toughest challenges we faced, from transitions in leadership to state budget cuts, DEVENEY’s team was supportive, strategic, efficient, professional and always delivered results.”

Mike Rivault

Director of Marketing and Communications | Southeastern Louisiana University
“When I first began working with DEVENEY, I was average at best. Today, I am called in as an "expert" presenter to help others become better speakers. This success would not have been possible without the expertise of DEVENEY.”

Erik Frank

CEO | Your Nutrition Delivered
“My experience with speaker training was exceptional and invaluable. Working with the DEVENEY team helped me refine my communication style, focus and effectiveness when presenting information to any type of audience. It has helped me both personally and professionally. I highly encourage anyone, regardless of their position, to attend the seminar.”

Mary Miller, RN, MSN, FACHE

Vice-President of Physician Services | Terrebonne General Medical Center
“It only took a few minutes in John’s seminar to realize that he ‘gets it.’ His experience that he gets across through anecdotes and humour, I believe takes away from the fear and apprehension people may have in dealing with the media. I truly believe that the one-day session I had with John helped make me a better communicator. I would encourage any communicator, regardless of their experience or training, to attend one of John’s seminars.”

Mark Cooper

Public Affairs Officer | Alberta Innovation and Science
“The Media Training was a great success. Not only do I feel the participants received excellent training in this regard, more importantly, I feel that they gained a real ability to develop and communicate key messages. Applying this skill will be tremendously valuable as the participants communicate not just with the media but also with venture capitalists, banks, customers and many others. In essence, we sent them for media training and they learned how to communicate!”

C.L. Tina Blake, B.Sc.

Technology Commercialization Officer | Alberta Heritage Foundation for Medical Research
“DEVENEY’s partnership with Children’s Hospital has been critical in the growth of our marketing capabilities, especially in a part of our business where we have needed to strengthen our ties with our local constituents. The agency is filled with great strategists who know our business and markets. Their expertise has made a positive impact on our operations as well as our bottom line.”

Mary Perrin

President and CEO | Children’s Hospital
“DEVENEY served as our strategic marketing partner in advance of and through the opening of the $1.2 billion University Medical Center New Orleans. From their work on grand opening media relations to the creation of the award-winning opening campaign “The Future of Healthcare is Here,” our team was able to count on DEVENEY to provide strategic counsel and deliver great results. We value our partnership and look forward to more exciting work to come.”

Siona LaFrance

Director of Marketing & Public Affairs | UMC New Orleans
“I’ve had the privilege of working with DEVENEY for over a decade. I always choose them as my preferred partner because of their integrity, ethics, dedication, skill and talent.”

Catherine Blades

Senior Vice President, Corporate Communications | Aflac
“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
“Our work with DEVENEY has been extremely productive and I attribute that to DEVENEY's ability to challenge the client. Bring out the best in the client. That’s what’s been most impressive about the DEVENEY team”

Gregory C. Feirn

CEO | LCMC Health
“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).”
