People on the move in the Social Media Industry: Dec 21st, 2007


I’m starting this post series to recognize and congratulate folks who get promoted, move, or accept new exciting positions. We should congratulate the following folks:

  • Congrats to Sean O’Driscoll who’s moving on to new opportunities. He served customers as Microsoft’s MVP online advocate program, a 15 year veteran of MS, and based upon my interviews with him, a true community expert.
  • Recently, Connie Benson accepted a position at ACDSee as community manager. She’s a community maven, and helps manage the Community Manager Facebook group (link below)
  • Shashi Bellamkonda accepted the position of Social Media Strategist at Network Solutions. He often provides great insight in Twitter, follow him.
  • Eric Suesz joins Get Satisfaction as the Community Manager, Amy welcomes him in. (Also congrats to Amy and Thor for their new baby)
