I am happy to report I am now heading up business and client development for Allen Matkins Leck Gamble Mallory & Natsis LLP, a full service business law firm based in Los Angeles, CA (#157 on AmLaw 200).
The choice to return to an in-house position was actually easier than I thought. My good friend Jennifer Skiver called me several weeks back to ask if I knew of anyone that could step up to fill a new position at her firm. They were looking for help where the rubber meets the road -- business and client development. While I have been mostly content as an agency owner these last many months I have to confess I missed the challenge and opportunity that comes from being on the "inside". So I said, "How about me?"
Fast-forward a few weeks and here I am, the new (excited and energized) guy at Allen Matkins. I am certain this experience will produce lots of new thoughts to share here at MC blog.
I am totally charged and cannot wait for what happens next!
