Someone nominated me for the Charleston American Marketing Association Marketer of the Year Award. I have no idea who (will you please reveal yourself so I can thank you?), and it took me by complete surprise when I found out yesterday morning via Twitter of all places.

Most of the people on the list, some of whom I know personally, others whom I know peripherally and are familiar with their work, represent a New Charleston. A Charleston that doesn’t take ‘no’ for an answer. A Charleston that is not afraid to step outside the bounds of what has been done in the past, and a Charleston that continually, passionately, creates the New.
So take a look at the list and cast your vote, for me or for any of the stellar people on there.
