What do clients say about Russ and his team?

“Russ is a very professional and trusted partner for my business. He did exactly what he said he would do and it provided results I would not have had otherwise. He has contacts that you need to secure placements in the media and his writing is impactful and thorough. He will continue to be a solid resource for me in the public relations arena.” --Ericka Young, owner, Taylor-Made Budgets

“I had the pleasure of meeting Russ Christ when he and his family visited Victoria, British Columbia on a summer holiday in 2007. Russ was also researching and writing travel golf stories for his numerous outlets. Russ was such a diligent writer that not only did he publish several articles on Victoria following his trip, but he actually included Victoria in an assignment that was published before he even arrived! I tease Russ that I am going to have to put him on the Tourism Victoria payroll because he has been so forthcoming with recommending my destination to other writers and travel influencers, sending me leads and helping me conduct business on his quot;home turfquot; in Arizona. It's quite rare to encounter a writer who is willing to help a PR person! But, as Russ wears two hats as both a writer and a public relations professional, he understands my business needs. Russ is a professional, hard working writer with an easy, approachable manner that makes him a pleasure to work with.” --Heather McGillvray, Sales Manager, Travel Media Relations, Tourism Victoria

Seven Canyons Sedona, Arizona “Russ Christ is the consummate professional. His knowledge and expertise, combined with his work ethic, provides a valuable service to those who utilize his talents and services. I have worked with Mr. Christ on a variety of projects and can attest to his character and diligence. I would highly recommend him to anybody needing communications expertise.” --Tony Kingsbaker, president, Tony K & Associates, Scottsdale

Arizona Country Club “The Southwest Section PGA contracted the services of Russ Christ to manage our public relations. Russ is a true professional in every aspect of the job. He's timely, honest and knowledgable. The Southwest Section PGA would like to retain his services for a very long time.” --Vito Berlingeri, marketing director, Southwest Section PGA

Curt Hudek and Tom Colceri “Russ and I met in the golf business at least 10 years ago. He has always been easy to work with, very knowledgeable and most helpful. We now work together on the non-profit Board of the Golf Industry Association and Russ is a key component by ensuring we get the needed press and media attention for the GIA. He also remains important to the SWSPGA in a similar capacity.” --Tom Colceri, president, Golf Industry Association
