DISCLAIMER FOR EVERY SINGLE BLOG KEVIN FISCHER WRITES ABOUT BOOMGAARD FROM 5/4/08 UNTIL HIS LOVELY AND MUCH YOUNGER WIFE, JENNIFER FINALLY DOES HIM IN: KEVIN FISCHER ENTHUSIASTICALLY SUPPORTS THE VISIONARY BIG PICTURE CONCEPT OF THE S. 27TH STREET CORRIDOR, BUT HAS PROBLEMS WITH THE NAME, “BOOMGAARD DISTRICT” AND HOW IT CAME TO BE (i.e. zero input from public).
I truly enjoyed reading Greg Kowalski’s blog that excerpted a Milwaukee Business Journal opinion piece critical of the name, “Boomgaard.”
The piece was written by John Murphy, Executive Director of Howl Fire.
Howl Fire is in the public relations and communications business.
So is the Zizzo Group that came up with the name, “Boomgaard.”
That would make Howl Fire a competitor of the Zizzo Group, now wouldn’t it?
It would seem to follow that Howl Fire would stand to benefit from publicly criticizing the Zizzo Group.
Take a look at who works for Howl Fire.
Why, it’s my friend and former colleague from WTMJ, Jeff Fleming.
Now would you look at that.
Fleming is the public relations director for Howl Fire.
I'll bet he offered some suggestions on that Business Journal piece.
And it just so happens that Fleming once worked for…………… the Zizzo group that is now his competitor!
Connect the dots, ladies and gentlemen.
Hey, I’m just sayin’. UPDATE ON 5/19/08: John Murphy of Howl Fire who wrote the anti-Zizzo piece was an employee of Zizzo Group Advertising & PR up until April of last year.
