Mentoring of a different kind: Procter & Gamble Co. interactive marketing alumnus Pete Blackshaw, CEO-founder of customer feedback site PlanetFeedback, is getting married Sept. 2 to Erika Brown, a brand manager on a yet-to-be-announced digital brand at P&G. Blackshaw says they met there while working in "adjacent Dilbert-style office cubicles." The couple's premartial counselor is none other than Denis Beausejour, former VP-global marketing at P&G, who spearheaded the "Future of Advertising Stakeholders Summit" in 1997, working closely with Mr. Blackshaw to organize FAST. Mr. Beausejour left P&G in April to join a Christian seminary. "He's found a new market," Mr. Blackshaw jokes. "He's quite good at it."
