Dentsply Sirona

After the European company Dentsply Sirona – the largest manufacturer of dental supplies in the world – moved its headquarters to Charlotte, it desired to be more engrained in the local community and raise its profile. 

 

Knowing that Charlotte is a challenging media market, Edelman Germany entrusted the LEPR Agency to create a hyperlocal public relations strategy that aligned with the CEO’s objective of giving a major donation to a notable Historically Black College or University. The LEPR Agency broke through a negative media cycle following the company’s canceled $3.9 million incentive agreement with the state of North Carolina, creating positive news coverage across three cities in business journals, newspapers and television. The team utilized board members, the CEO and Chief Human Resources Officer as spokespersons for the company to tout business growth and community engagement.
