It's a bittersweet day here at the WECO. One of our original inbound marketing specialists, Catherine Doyle is leaving us to move to Austin, TX. I remember exactly how she broke the news to me.
The inbound marketing team took one of our typical Friday field trips down to Five Points, laptops in hand. As we were working remotely on a beautiful day outside, I get a text from Catherine as she's sitting right next to me.
"I have some news, but I'd rather tell you alone."
I go to the bathroom and eye her to follow me. She tells me as we walk into Delaney's that she's moving to Austin. My first reaction I can only describe as that of a proud momma. She's crying. I'm smiling. Big hugs exchanged.
The moment Catherine approached me after a guest lecture in Randy's Covington's class at the University of South Carolina, I hired her immediately. She became my right hand, and she was still in college. I'm so blessed she even stuck around after graduation long enough to work with us here at Riggs Partners.
Now, as tears of pride and joy roll down my face, it is my absolute honor to announce that Catherine has landed a job at, none other than the largest social media network in the world, Facebook.
Congratulations Catherine. We are all so very proud of you and will miss you.
