The office was headed by George Goodwin, a Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist for the Atlanta Journal. As Bell and Stanton/Atlanta, the company’s first client was the Atlanta Chamber of Commerce which by 1968 had launched the third phase of its Forward Atlanta campaign to help position the city for national recognition and consideration as a location corporations and government agencies.
