Vehr Communications Celebrates 3rd Anniversary|
This edition of March Forth marks the third anniversary of Vehr Communications. Wow! Three years have gone by faster than Apollo Ohno and Lindsay Vonn in Vancouver.
As I reflect on the good work we have done (of which we are very proud) for really fantastic clients (of whom we are even more proud), my mind goes to the professionals who work here. After all, if someone hires Vehr Communications to develop and implement a strategic communications program, they're really hiring the combined talents, knowledge and experiences of the people who work here. Of these guys, I couldn't be more proud.
So, it is my distinct pleasure to introduce each of them to you. Please meet them below. Link over to their profiles on our Web site. Develop your own sense of what great professionals they are.
Thanks for reading March Forth. And, oh yeah, please think about Vehr Communications if you, or someone you know, can benefit from the strategic communications services we provide.
