VisiTech has named Bill Menezes as senior account director. Menezes formerly was editorial director of Colorado Media Matters, and spent years as a reporter and editor at publications such as the Denver Post, Wireless Week and Multichannel News. We can only hope that Menezes’ bio will finally replace that of Gabe Boeckman, who left VisiTech a year ago (literally) but whose bio is still the second one listed on the VisiTech Web site.
NREL has hired Gabe Boeckman as Communications Project Leader/Web Content Manager. Boeckman formerly was with VisiTech PR.
VisiTech PR has picked up Seattle-based Hubspan as a client.
Congratulations to VisiTech PR and GroundFloor Media, which have been named finalists for 2008 SABRE awards. VisiTech is a finalist in the Trade Show category for its work with Stockholm-based client Net Insight, and GroundFloor Media is a finalist in the Social Marketing category for its work with the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment.
If you work at VisiTech, please don’t tell Lisa Wilson we mentioned her.
Congratulations to Denver-based VisiTech Public Relations, which is a finalist for a PRSA Silver Anvil award for its work with Polycom. It may be a bittersweet honor, though, because we hear Polycom dropped VisiTech a couple of months ago as part of an agency review.
Having finally dumped its interminable “14 Days to Launch” banner, the VisiTech Web site has retreated and now is in week 2 of “Preparing to Launch.” And this is a tech agency?
And before you get smug, Pete Webb, we’ve noticed that you’ve been without a real Web site for a couple of months. Remember the good old days when companies created a new Web site and then pulled down the old one to replace it?
Would someone please wake up the IT staff at VisiTech? The unveiling of their Web site redesign has been “14 days” away for weeks now.
Denver Post technology reporter Kimberly Johnson is blogging from CES in Las Vegas this week, as is Jeff Smith at the Rocky Mountain News. Both can expect to see a number of fellow Denverites from tech companies such as Case Logic, Hopscotch and Pentax Imaging, as well as from tech agencies such as VisiTech.
Among the Denver agencies hiring this week are 104 West, Catapult, GroundFloor Media, VisiTech and Peter Webb.
