Big Changes for Louder Than Words!

LTW Logo for CG Blog

It's been a while since I've posted. Not because I've been at a loss for anything interesting to write, but instead because I have hardly had a moment to eat and sleep, let alone blog. But that is about to change... This blog post represents the last OFFICIAL post from Louder Than Words. After this, they will become the personal musings of Rich Polt. That's because on November 1, Louder Than Words will be acquired by the full service branding, marketing, public relations, advertising and interactive agency, Warschawski, based in my hometown of Baltimore, MD (click on the image to read the press release, issued today, for complete details)!!!

In early November, I will be moving with my family down to Baltimore, and will assume the role of Senior Vice President at the new agency. Tricia McKenna, Vice President at Louder Than Words will remain in Boston, where she will launch and oversee Warschawski’s New England office. Tricia will retain the title of Vice President and will play an integral role in transitioning our current clients over to the new shop.

The coupling of Louder Than Words and Warschawski is a fantastic match, not only for our respective agencies and the individuals involved, but for our clients, who will now have direct access to creative design, advertising, interactive and branding services – all under one roof. Like Louder Than Words, Warschawski delivers high-caliber results and superlative client service; and like LTW, they regard communications as a noble pursuit and a force for advancing good, making this a strong cultural and ideological fit.

Obviously this is a bittersweet moment for us. Since 2003, we have had the privilege of serving so many inspiring individuals and organizations under the “Louder Than Words” banner. But while our name and logo (oh how we love our name and logo) might be getting moved to the proverbial archive folder, we so look forward to building on our successful seven-year run as part of a larger and equally caring agency (did I mention that Warschawski was just named National “Small Firm of the Year” by PR News?).

Again, on 11/1, our agency blog,, will no longer be an agency blog, but will instead become a private blog for my own musings about effective communications and doing good in the world. I hope that you will sign-up for my RSS feed and continue to follow me on Twitter at

Wishing you all the best!
