Service Description

Jay MacDonald is an international award-winning writer and editor whose talent, insight and commitment to his craft come through strongly in his work. A professional writer from age 16, Mr. MacDonald’s keen eye for detail and command of the language sped his journey from daily newspaper reporter and national magazine associate editor to a position as writer and editor with United Press International worldwide wire service. His success as a wire reporter and editor led to an executive position with Hill and Knowlton, then the world’s largest public relations firm. There, his clients included MCI Telecommunications and Arby’s, Inc. Mr. MacDonald eventually opened his own marketing communications firm, where his clients included Seattle’s famed Pike Place Market. In 1995, he accepted a senior communications position with Honeywell’s Commercial Aviation Systems. His innovative work at Honeywell was recognized by the International Association of Business Communicators, which awarded him its highest honor, the Gold Quill Award of Excellence, in international competition.
