People on the Move in the Social Media Industry: July 7, 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:

  • Shannon B takes the helm as the Community Manager at a grocery review community
  • Mzinga gets Rachel Happe, who will lead up a strategic consulting group. Rachel hails as a former IDC analyst covering the space, I look forward to learning more about her new program.
  • Bryan Person joins White Label Social Network LiveWorld as a social media evangelist. A great fit for both of them, wishing them both the best. I expect to see Bryan closer to the conversation I take in, as I cover this space.
  • This one is personally difficult for me, I’m very thankful for all that Charlene has done as a friend, teacher, and colleague, she now moves on to spend time with her family, and she says she’ll take some time off to determine her next steps.

  • How to Connect with others:
