RESEARCH TRIANGLE PARK, NC, March 31, 2015—Coleman Insights announces that after 40 years in broadcasting and 22 years with the company, vice president Chris Ackerman is retiring, effective today.
Ackerman says, “Kathy and I are deeply grateful for the opportunity Jon Coleman and Warren Kurtzman have provided us, and for the support and friendship of all our Coleman colleagues. I am also grateful for the many clients I’ve had the honor and privilege to serve through the years. Your confidence in me, and your support and business are deeply appreciated. It has been a wonderful ride and we’ve made some great radio together. Thank you all for everything. Kathy and I look forward to discovering what lies ahead in the next chapter of our lives.”
President and COO Warren Kurtzman added, “Chris is going to be missed on so many levels. Our clients will miss his advice and counsel. We will miss his presence as a fabulous mentor to employees at every level of our organization. Most of all, however, I am going to miss having my good friend for the last 20 years down the hall. Jon Coleman, John Boyne, Sam Milkman and I—along with everyone at Coleman Insights—wish nothing but the best for Chris and thank him for his incalculable contributions to the success of our company.”
