Years of comprehensive coverage of the PR industry has taught us
that there are as many reasons for joining the industry as there are
people in it.
However, there are some people for whom entry into any other area would
have been a tragic waste of the perfect name. In just the past few days,
PRWeek has been the joyous recipient of a number of press releases
detailing some far-too-appropriate monikers.
How, for example, could anyone called Smooch C. Reynolds head up any
other company than the executive recruiters for the PR industry, The
Repovich-Reynolds Group? And was Kelsey Flower destined to work for PR
firm Eric Mower & Associates?
Best of all, was our discovery that one of the PR staffers at good old
PBS was none other than Bob Rumerman.
Which got us thinking. There must, surely, be hundreds of you out
So don't be shy - if your parents clearly had PR in mind when they put
pen to birth certificate, then e-mail news@ prweek.com. We might even
give out a prize for the best one. (But don't hold us to it.)
