Angie’s List taps PR veteran

November 8, 2014

Angie’s List Inc. has hired communications veteran Debra DeCourcy as its first vice president of corporate communications, PR Week recently reported.

DeCourcy, who started in mid-October, is charged with crafting a broad communications strategy that includes internal and customer communications, the industry publication reported. Before the hire, the company’s director of communications primarily focused on media relations.

DeCourcy oversees a staff of four, a team that’s expected to grow.

DeCourcy has held senior communications positions at branding agencies, banks and other firms since 1997. On her LinkedIn page, she touted her work as a senior official at Cincinnati-based Fifth Third Bancorp in helping the bank’s stock rebound from $1.05 a share in 2009 to more than $17 a share in 2013.
