Vic Beck is an old colleague from my time in Boston on the board of the Boston chapter of the American Marketing Association, he volunteered with the chapter during my year as President of the chapter in the role of public relations director for the communications committee, and eventually VP of Communications for the chapter. He did a great job for the chapter. But was called up by the Navy to serve overseas in the gulf.
