In most cases, Public Relations Officers deal with the PR management for companies. This implies writing press releases, as well as preparing high-ranking executives for addressing general public and professionals.

Such a form of ghostwriting doesn’t really give the PR mangers any credit, still they are clearly an important part of the office team.
