NEW YORK, Sept. 10, 2013 /PRNewswire/ --  Global communications leader Porter Novelli announced today that it has been named agency of record (AOR) for public relations services for Durex, a leading sexual wellbeing brand from Reckitt Benckiser. The agency has been charged with media relations, strategic planning and brand building in the U.S.

Durex inspires couples to get closer and go further through its extensive collection of condoms, lubricants and personal massagers, and provides tips and advice for lovers to make their bedrooms hotter than ever before.

"We have previously worked with Porter Novelli to help us build meaningful relationships with influencers across all media," said Aurore Trepo, Durex marketing director, Reckitt Benckiser.

In addition to Durex, Porter Novelli also works on Finish, Woolite and Resolve in the Reckitt Benckiser portfolio, and leads corporate reputation and executive visibility for the company's employer branding efforts in the U.S.
