Given our HQ is in Newport, Rhode Island, much of the Caster crew hails from the lovely northeast region of the United States, though we’ve also got a handful of remote folks currently scattered across the South, Mid-Atlantic, Midwest, and West Coast.
In addition to our mutual East-of-the-Mississippi roots, we share many other traits in common, like our collective loves for spice, seafood, and horror movies, as well as our general inability to see – nearly 80% of us wear glasses or contacts. Strangely, all of us are right-handed, though we promise that’s not a requirement to work with us.
We are similarly unanimous in our love for the outdoors, as we have runners, hikers, golfers, skiers, and swimmers within our group. The most popular activity amongst the team is yoga, and some have even invented their own poses such as the “Downward-facing Dammit,” which is when you are interrupted mid-practice by your dog.
Speaking of which, we are incredibly passionate about our pets at Caster, and our mammalian mascots of choice are a pair of indestructible Westminster terriers named Molly and Maisy who have battled coyotes and foxes. We’ve also got Bennie, Bruce, Jethro, Lucy, Luke, Moxie, Ohana, Olive, Otis, Pancho, Ryiah, Tigger, and Tobie bouncing around to keep us company, among others. Sadly, we lost Boomer this year, but he is deeply missed. About half of us have human children as well, which is roughly the same percentage of the team that still has cable. Whether there is causality there or merely correlation is for you to decide.
On an individual level, we do have our idiosyncrasies, as not a single one of us shares the same favorite podcast, we all have our own preferred National Parks, and we can’t seem to agree on the best way to take morning coffee. That said, whatever we listen to, wherever we go, and however we start our day…
The one thing we have in common? We love working together.
At Caster, we understand the value of partnering with like-minded groups to expand our networks, provide education, and give back to communities. We participate in a number of industry associations and groups across PR and marketing, local business and technology groups that are key to the markets we serve.
We think that we do pretty great work — but don’t just take our word for it. In over 20 years of business, Caster has won numerous awards and accolades for PR, content, and social media. Here are a few.
