Last evening, we found ourselved among distinguished company receiving the Arthur Watkins Award  from the Chamber of Commerce. Arthur Watkins served at U.S. Senator from Utah, but was most respected for his efforts to grow and develop Utah and its people. I felt very humbled to be recognized along side such great community and business leaders as Jeremy Hanks of Doba, Tye Noorda, and Bill Sederburg, among others. 


When launching PilmerPR five years ago, I envisioned delivering best practices learned while doing public relations work for companies like Novell, Altiris, and Certiport. To be sustainable, we worked to keep overhead costs low so we could deliver world class results for emerging companies on tight budgets. With growth and terrific staff we’ve developed a virtual telecommuting model that leverages the best of technology for remote collaboration, while helping the environment. This results in tens of thousands of dollars in fuel savings, a reduced pollution contribution to the air we breathe, and provides our staff more time with their families.

As PilmerPR enters its 6th year in business this month, we are still growing as we provide outstanding PR services to clients, service to the community, and service to the environment our grandchildren will inherit.

And I say for those weighed down by current economic and political challenges, it’s a great time to grow a business.   Let’s tune out more of the bad news and tune in to the great opportunities in front of us.

Thanks to our great staff for making this award possible.
