Coming Home to SRI!
I guess I just couldn't stay away. After leading new business at Burson-Marsteller in NYC and consulting through Orsborn Partners, it feels like coming home to rejoin Catherine Bension and the great team at SelectResources International. As many of you know. I spent much of the last decade with SRI building the PR agency search practice into the most active in the country. The firm, called the "Google" of agency search by AdAge, continues to handle many of the top searches in the U.S., and we're already seeing significant interest from clients to use our PR-specific services. For marketers, we look forward to helping you find the right agency match for your needs. For agencies, I'm sure we'll be working with you again on some exciting business opportunities.
