VisiTech Hires Menezes

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.

‘Preparing to Launch’

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?
