Senior Public Relations Executive
Will joined Yellow Duck as a Senior Public Relations Executive. A Maryland native, Will spent 20 years in journalism before moving into public relations, starting his career with ABC News in Atlanta and moving to Charlotte in 1999 to join Charlotte Magazine as a senior editor. Will later pivoted into business journalism and worked for Institutional Investor Newsletters in Washington D.C., covering regulatory issues affecting the capital markets.
He returned to Charlotte in 2003 to cover banking and finance for the Charlotte Business Journal and spent 12 years at the CBJ, serving as the paper’s real estate reporter during his last seven. Will left the CBJ to open a Charlotte office for an Atlanta-based public relations firm, working with national and regional clients in the commercial real estate and professional services sectors on media relations, content, social media and thought leadership.
Will has earned an Bachelors from Davidson College, a Masters in journalism from the University of Missouri and an MBA from Queens University. He lives with his wife and two sons in south Charlotte, where he is patiently waiting for a neighborhood microbrewery. Will still likes to read the print edition on weekends and believes that The Wire is the greatest television show ever made.
