Bolt PR Expands into Texas, Brings Our Very Own Shawn Paul Wood Along

345949aToday in Self Serving Agency news: grammar scold, listicle master and crotchety (but not old) man Shawn Paul Wood has been appointed general manager/public relations director of Bolt PR‘s newest office in Dallas/Fort Worth, Texas (release here).

Wood makes the move after five years in a directorial position at HCK2. The release tells us that he is (emphasis ours) “also a nationally searched and regarded blogger” with an “extensive background in broadcast media, public affairs, community relations and creative branding”, because TMI, dude!

Bolt writes that the decision to expand into the Lone Star State with its third office (others are located in Irvine, CA and Raleigh, NC) was “based on the region’s strong economy, growth and diverse industry presence”, but we’d like to think that they just read our blog and realized that Shawn’s internal database of knowledge about the PR industry may have inspired the “Everything’s Bigger in Texas” slogan.

This has been a shameless act of self promotion disguised as a public service announcement. We now return to your regularly scheduled program.
