People on the Move in the Social Media Industry: May 18th, 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:

  • SF based Adam Metz has become a partner at theMIX, leaving Launchsquad. The company does social web strategy consulting, business development and public relations for a varied set of clients
  • Kristen Taylor started a new position as the Online Community Manager for the Knight Foundation (who funds online journalism and community); previously, she was the Associate Director of Online Content and Social Media for PBS.
  • Antonio Salgado Leiner of Mexico is excited to be new media and social media manager to social computing director at NeoSocial Media.
  • Congrats to Jackie Danici who has joined Qik (mobile live video) as the Director of Marketing, I’ve known Jackie for a few years now, there’s no mistake why they call her the dynamist, see video from Pat Phelan.
  • Stefan Constantinescu and Ricky Cadden are now part of Nokia’s S60 Online Marketing Team, they will be using blogs, and will encourage word of mouth around the platform, congrats guys!
