By Gerald Witt I was a PR major for about 15 minutes in undergrad. That’s what I told my ink-stained friends in newsrooms when Cortney Piper added me to her team in 2020. Those same buddies cranked out copy with
“Good and slow.” When I was an executive leader with Governor Bill Haslam’s Administration, this was the feedback we received from Tennesseans about the performance of state government.
It goes without saying that 2020 didn’t turn out like any of us expected it would. Right before the pandemic hit, Piper Communications had one of its best years ever. We were looking forward to building upon the momentum we gained in 2019.
