People on the Move in the Social Media Industry: May 11th, 2008


I’m starting this post series (see archives) to recognize and congratulate folks who get promoted, move, or accept new exciting positions. Please help me congratulate the following folks:

  • Patricia Mayo has moved from being an editor at to a Social Media Strategist with NowSourcing, congrats! Her duties will include: handle their twittering, and do quite a bit of SMO blogging and SEO / PPC.
  • Vanina Delobelle (who I interviewed in a recent post) is the Product Director Social Media by Monster, she recently earned her PhD in Social Media.
  • Marina Martin is the the Community Evangelist for Elastic Lab, and is seeking out filmmakers of all levels to network for film projects.
  • Annie Heckenberger has moved on from being the Social Media Director for Greater Philadelphia Tourism Marketing Corp and joined ad agency Red Tettemer (, yep, that’s me on the homepage!) in mid-March. Her title is Community Trailblazer.
  • Laurie Buczek has recently moved into the role of Enterprise Social Media Program Manager at Intel. She moved from the external social media efforts into driving the strategy and implementation of social media internally.
