Bud Carter's fascination with quotes likely started when he was an award-winning radio news editor, then a TV anchorman, and ultimately the publisher/editor of an issues and business weekly newspaper. After he moved to Atlanta, he was recruited to become Vistage's first Chairman and began collecting the "salient snippets" shared by the speakers appearing before his groups. Since the 1987 start-up, Carter and his groups have heard more than 1,000 speaker presentations, and he has now published twelve editions of their pithy quotes.

Carter and his wife reside in suburban Atlanta where he serves on a number of boards including that of the Reporter Newspaper chain. Carter professes a passion for baseball and jazz, strives for mediocrity on the racquetball court, and says he has spent a lifetime in pursuit of the perfect barbecue. And more pithy quotes.
