Pentax USA Looking for a PR Person

Hope this is the right place in the forum, but Pentax USA has posted a job opening for a PR and Trade Show Manager.

This is looks to be a good sign that Pentax is planning to promote their products more in the US.

There was another thread on the topic, but now I can't find it. One of our members should take that position!

I hope I need to revise my negative opinion of Pentax USA marketing and my snipes at the two most visible executives. It will be my pleasure so to do.

Please. That would be like Donald Trump becoming the president of the United States of America.

I don't live in the USA.. if this was a Canadian posting I would in a heartbeat.. I might even hold off on the D800 purchase if I got the job! I would imagine you would also get a pretty good employee discount...

Falk should apply... but I think his vast knowledge would scare John Carlson into early retirement... hmm maybe a good thing?

Damn, interesting job indeed, and it fits my profile completely, though unfortunately (for them, hehe) I am not interested in moving to the U.S.
