The Public Relations Procedure applies primarily to the marketing manager, public relations (PR) director, and company President. (26 pages, 3470 words)
Public Relations Responsibilities:

(In a large enough company, the Marketing Manager’s responsibilities may be handled by a Director of Public Relations or Marketing Manager.)
Where public relations are handled by an outside firm, the Marketing Manager is responsible for ensuring that the Plan developed by that firm is in alignment with the company’s plans, goals, and objectives and for maintaining an open, ongoing dialogue between the company and the PR firm.
The CEO (Chief Executive Officer) is responsible for approving MT1020-2 PUBLIC RELATIONS PLAN.
