Lansons scoops prestigious PR Week award for Crisis and Issues Management

We’re thrilled to have won this award for our work with Stobart, particularly as we were up against some strong competitors!

What we won for…   

Lansons was approached by Influence Associates (Stobart’s corporate consultancy) to help manage external communications and investor relations issues. A boardroom crisis resulted in the Chairman resigning and the share price reached a low of 75p in Q1 2013. Trust from the City was low, criticising a lack of communication and a history of undelivered promises.

 A suite of challenging issues (Chairman appointment, flat results, legal issues and re-positioning through the realisation of the trucking business) all added to the communications challenge.

 However, a disciplined communications and engagement programme recovered the share price to 144p at the time of writing.
