And-the-winner-is___I just wrote a personal email to the 59 of you who voted and helped select my new column name.

The winning choice by a long shot was “At Your Service.”

It was on the list of 15 choices. So, the $10 Starbucks card, which would have gone to the one who submitted a name that got chosen and was not on the list of 15, is placed back in the contest cage behind the curtain for another day.  Hey, house rules! That’s how it rolls. It’s the fine print, right? At least the parking’s free.

Seriously, I was gratefully overwhelmed with all your fun responses! Thank you for your help.  Your input made the choice obvious and easy.  The great bonus is my wife and the journal editor both like it best and I do too!

Therefore, my new monthly Customer Service column will  be called “At Your Service.”

It will make it’s debut in the April edition of the Central Valley Business Journal. It is online and distributed by mail to business leaders in San Joaquin, Stanislaus, and (just starting in) Merced counties.  I’m really excited and honored to be a part of it.

Thank you again for your interest and participation.

Your thoughts, please, and thanks!
