VCI: The advertising firm nobody knows. Really? Please. Get some balls fellas. Stop being safe, and tell people who you are, what you do, why you are different, and how you are doing things better than your competitors. Get out on the edge of the razor, or get out of the business. Fabulous assets. Great drive. Get the jet off the ground. I see an ATT U-verse ad on the right side of this page. Anyone see the word Valassis lately? The word is the brand. The customers are the company. I want to see our name in as many places as possible. (Ok I'm not a customer, but the idea holds.) Get off your duffs and start putting up signs. You have the printing equipment. Holy mackerel. Do you want a 'safe' company, or do you want a company that is confident, sure of itself, and sought out for its business prowess? Get to it. Now!
3yrs 10 mil., but I'm retired now, and hardly interested. Anyway, someone on the board questioned my competence and judgment, and a few other things. So I let them do their thing. The challenges they face are particularly interesting to me, and I am optimistic that the right people can make the difference going forward. But I wouldn't be so thrilled about working for them simply because of my age. Thanks though. Nice thought.
