A family-owned regional commercial insurance brokerage turned to Linhart PR when its CEO, a fourth-generation leader, was indicted by the U.S. Department of Justice on insider trading charges and sued by the Securities & Exchange Commission. Linhart PR developed strategies for communicating with employees, investors, customers and the news media, and served as company spokesperson.
A 100-year-old closely held regional business insurance brokerage needed to deal with the indictment of its CEO, a fourth-generation family leader of the company. The company focused on protecting its employees and customers.
Linhart PR helped the company make clear that its CEO’s personal legal difficulties had nothing to do with the company or its commitments to clients and employees. Working closely with the president and CFO, we developed all messaging and materials for employees, clients and the news media, and acted as media spokespersons for the company as the situation evolved over several months, leading up to the CEO’s eventual resignation and guilty plea.
