    Moving on from buy.at
    A while back my first real mentor at Advertising.com told a group of us,

    "The only thing that is constant in this business is change."

    Nothing could be more true, and it has always helped guide me along in my career. I can certainly say the move to buy.at is the best change I have ever made in my career.

    After nearly 3 years with buy.at, and two very distinct owners, it is time for me to move on from the organization. It's been a fun run and I have met a ton of great people from both sides of the pond. I can only hope my new ventures offer as many enjoyable times and have as many wonderful people.

    The team here at buy.at is incredibly strong and I have never worked with a more capable group of individuals. This is how I know I am leaving the affiliates in good hands, where they will continue to profit from a relationship with buy.at.

    While I will no longer be with buy.at, I won't be leaving the industry all together. You will still see me on the forums and you will certainly see me at various conferences.

    I hope to stay in touch with many of you, drop me an email anytime at

    ccalabrese[(at)]@hotmail.com

    Best of luck to each of you in all your future endeavors.


    Sincerely,
    Charlie Calabrese

    Hey Charlie,

    It was good working with you mate, esp at ASW this year which was a blast front to end. I'm sure Amy, Kim and the team will miss you hugely.

    You are one of life's real gentlemen and I'm sure you'll excel whever you turn up. So all the best to you in whatever you're doing next.

    I am guessing some desk company saw your video and want you to assemble desk for a living

    Vinny you got it on the first try...

    Ikea saw the video and offered me a place on their inhouse office building team. I shall now be running all over the globe building desks. hahaha

    The truth is I cant really talk about where I am going, because of an NDA, but let me assure you, you will be among the first to know when I can.

    Charlie it has always been a pleasure speaking with you at the conferences. Enjoy your sense of humor. Make sure to do an introduction when you land at the next great venture. If you are at PubCon next week I'll buy you a drink.

    Awww. man... Just as we get you firmly planted in our neighborhood you are heading for parts unknown (at least for now). Charlie, I have every confidence you will do remarkably well wherever you are headed, and wish you the best of luck along the way.

    Oh Charlie.... you were one of the fun ones.

    What we do all day - copy and paste links - is boring

    Folks like you will be missed, as you added color to our days

    (Geez - sounds like an obit!!)

    Best of luck to you Chef!

    All My Best,
    Billy Kay
