"Without a doubt, making the decision to allow Carter West to become our public relations firm was the absolute best decision that we could have made.
In addition to being entirely professional, Carter West has elevated our national image and name recognition by a factor of ten — all within budget and by staying on top of us to get what they need so that they could do their job. With our fast moving company, that level of polite persistence is exactly what is required.
I can unequivocally state the highest return on investment that we have ever received from our advertising dollars is that which is related to Carter West."
