NEW YORK, Dec. 10, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Dukas Public Relations (DPR)—a leading financial public relations specialty firm—announced today that Zach Leibowitz has been promoted to Vice President. In his new position, he will take a more active role in the firm's management and business development, while also working to expand the suite of DPR's broadcast services.
