People on the Move in the Social Media Industry: June 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:

  • Luke Armour joins Fleishman-Hillard’s digital practice in Cleveland as a Senior Acct Executive, part of his duties will be focused on social media, in addition to other programs related to digital marketing, congrats!
  • Scott Monty, formerly of Crayon social media agency joins Ford Motors to head up their social media practice.
  • John Cass joins me at Forrester Research at our Boston HQ as our Online Community Manager, great guy, I’m super pleased to have him, we’re already engaging and having a good dialog.
  • Doug Haslam joined SHIFT Communications who is on my radar for delivering social media services in Boston as an account director.
  • Dave Fleet goes to Thornley Fallis Communications Inc as a Senior Consultant, working out of their Toronto office.
  • Former Techcrunch writer Duncan Riley spins off his own publication called the Inquisitr, apparently he left on good terms with Arrington but the content sometimes looks similar. Duncan is a great writer, and has a built in following, good luck on your own!
  • On a similiar vein, former PC World top dog Harry McCracken launches his own site Technologizer to cover the industry and joins the Federated Media family. Another example of mainstream headed into the social world.

Also, I probably will not include executive management changes on this list at social media companies, as the list would go on and on, but you can feel free to express yourself in the comments!
