When I woke up this morning lyrics from the Michael Bublé song “Feeling Good” were running through my mind:
It’s a new dawn, It’s a new day
It’s a new life for me
And I’m feeling good
I’m feeling good
It’s a new dawn, a new day for PR/PR Public Relations as we give best wishes to Carter as he moves on to greater adventures and opportunities. Carter has been with PR/PR for nearly nine years, just three months less than I’ve owned the agency, and almost half of its 20+ year existence.
The first thing that comes to mind when I think of Carter professionally is his brilliant writing. He turns a phrase and molds a metaphor better than anyone else I’ve read. Many clients were the beneficiary of his skills while he was crafting article pitches and press releases for them. His attention to detail and follow-through will be a blessing to any organization lucky enough to have him in their fold for a while.
When I think of Carter on a more personal level I think of a genuinely nice guy and good friend. I know he’s fiercely loyal to his friends and has their back no matter where on the globe they live. From his travels, he does have friends he keeps in contact with all over the world. I will miss our conversations, and sometimes debates, over politics and other current events. His ability to root out the truth of any media source bested my position on an issue many times.
Carter will be missed at PR/PR. He was an asset to the agency. We wish him luck and happiness. PR/PR is a boutique agency and he is a talented young man who needed to step away in order to keep moving up and we completely understand this.
His email address is still active, but for faster service just email me directly and I’ll get right back to you.
Take care, Carter!
