West Palm Beach-based Templeton & Company must agree, as the firm still sends them to announce news about its people.

In this case, Warren W. Blanchard, Jr. was recognized for joining the firm as principal working in the areas of Mergers and Acquisitions, Access to Capital, and Strategic Advisory Services.

We don’t usually report on people joining firms  - we save that for Accounting Today’s People section, just wanted to point out that even though e-mail is the communication champion of choice these days, paper still works and can leave a lasting impression.

Do you do send out a similar type announcement for your firm? Let us know. We love getting mail. Snail it to Liz Gold, Accounting Today, 1 State Street Plaza, New York, N.Y. 10004.
