Founding a new PR division with existing advertising agency
President of PUBLIC RELATIONS (Boston) (Former Employee), Boston, MA – August 16, 2014
Was brought in to save a number of accounts which were on the verge of leaving. Managed to save most but not all, Ad side felt competitive with PR side and they saw a continual fight for $ between the two divisions. We finally broke off the PR division as a separate entity and did much better after that.

The hardest part of the job is hearing that someone passed away. You get attached to all of them, they are like your family in a way. The most rewarding is seeing their eyes light up when they get their paycheck it may be under $1.oo or alittle higher. They taught me some many wonderful things. I learned to work with all kinds of people and focus on their needs to succeed in their job skills, and what it takes to help them overcome that hurdle. Management was ok there, main two bosses for the shop floor were fantastic, caring people who had fun and ideas. – less

Working for what was called Arnold, Behrens, Deters, and Gray was a excellent way to learn tax accounting and quarterly reviews. The office experience and front desk experience provided several learning experiences that will benefit my career in the future.
