The mostly official blog of the Hodges Partnership and Hodges Digital Strategies.

I know I've been a bit of a slacker on the blog side recently. The truth is I've been doing a lot of thinking recently about the future and the direction of PR and how it fits in the social and digital universe. I've got some posts "written" in my brain and I will share them with you in the near future.
I've also been thinking about the past since THP is celebrating its tenth anniversary this week.
It's been a fun, wild ride so far. Amazing what you can accomplish without a business plan, huh?
So some quick thanks are in order. To my wife Kyra and Josh's wife Rose, thanks so much for being patient with us on this continuing journey. Josh always says we have three levels in our business hierarchy, us...our employees...and on the top rung, Kyra and Rose.
To our co-workers, many thanks for the great work and great times. We've been very fortunate to have had a very low turnover through the years with our first four employees still working with us for many of those ten years. Thanks for taking such good care of us and our clients.
To our clients, we hope we've delivered great work for you. Many of you have been along for most of the ride as well and have become great friends along the way. We hope to continue all those business and personal relationships.
To the Richmond business community, thanks for all the support. We have and work with a lot of great partners who have added to the success of our business. We hope to continue partnering with you as we have always looked at our business as a true "Partnership."
On a truly personal note, I'd like to thank Josh (who hopefully played at least one round of golf on his current trip to Ireland) for being the best "second wife" a guy could ever have. The truth is we barely knew each other ten years ago when we took this leap of faith and I can say on my end that it was one of the best decisions I've ever made.
I've included the latest edition of our e-newsletter which has a lot of fun info on the ten years and our current staff. Don't forget to take the quiz that's included since one lucky person will win, what else, two tickets to see Springsteen in DC in September (got to be true to the personal brand, right?)
A lot has changed in ten years and we expect more changes in the future. Our plan is to be here for at least the next ten being the best we can be.
That's all we or anyone can ask for, right?1 commentPosted in: Public Relations | Richmond | The Hodges Partnership
