    Punctuation Occupational/Formal Titles after a Name

    Discussion in 'Word Mechanics' started by dillseed, May 7, 2014.

    Would you personally cap these titles after names? I've concocted the following sentences to determine whether I've done it right. Capping titles can get fuzzy.

    Garry Cummings, Assistant Director of Marketing, resigned on Friday.

    If we use 'the' or 'and' before the title, I think we'd go lowercase. Do you agree?
