…actually, not quite 5 years. In 2005 I joined Carmichael Lynch as a research specialist. Back then social media was a buzz word, Twitter still had the “track” feature and Facebook was just for college kids. Through the years I had the fortune to work with some great people to create some great work. The clients and people at CL are both top notch and will be missed. But this Friday will be my last day at Carmichael Lynch.
Next week I will be packing up my new car (I know, this still shocks some of my family/friends that I have a car) and will be heading South…to Dallas…yes, that’s Dallas, Texas. I know…here I was worried that I was moving to a non-snow state. But they just got 10 inches of snow there last week. So, I guess my new winter coat won’t go to waste after all. See, everything is going to be fine :)
In Dallas, I will be joining Matt Dickman at Fleishman-Hillard as Senior Vice President of Social Strategy. Though the decision to move South was a tough one, the opportunity to work with Matt and Fleishman-Hillard team/client roster was something that I could not pass up.
To my Minneapolis friends and family – you will be missed. Well, the -20 degree weather might not be missed but the art openings, soccer, broomball, board games, Irish pubs, beer tastings and Thanksgiving dinners will be.
Thank all over you for the laughs and great times over the last 5 years.
If you are ever in Dallas, much sure you stop by and say “howdy”.
