Tempe, AZ (PRWEB) September 8, 2009
Sitewire, Arizona's leading evolutionary marketing agency, is proud to announce the recognition of its new Director of Social Media, Jeff Moriarty, by the Phoenix New Times for his pioneering efforts in bringing social media to the Valley of the Sun.
The article details Moriarty's past as Community Manager for Intel's Mobile Developer Community and his present employment at Sitewire, while chronicling many of the social networking events he and others host on a monthly, if not weekly, basis. He's also featured on the issue's cover, much to his chagrin. "Just glad the Scratch N Sniff idea for the New Times cover fell through and they only went for displaying my GIGANTIC melon head," he wrote on his Twitter account.
Locally renowned as one of the ringleaders spearheading the social media charge in and around Phoenix, Moriarty has taken steps to downplay his role in the creation of an ever-expanding social network, choosing instead to promote the others who are helping him. Still, there's praise to be found.
"Every city needs their own version of Jeff. I'm pleased to see the social media scene in Phoenix getting some recognition. I think we've done great things in a city as large as Phoenix, and I'm happy to see others building on our successes in other cities," said Evo Terra, another Phoenix social media luminary and new addition to the Sitewire team.
A founder of Ignite Phoenix and ImprovAZ, Moriarty shows no signs of stopping or even slowing down. His unorthodox schedule at Sitewire allows him to split his time between the various social media activities he leads, as well as launching a philanthropic endeavor with the non-profit Phoenix Innovation Foundation, whose mission is to educate and foster the local Phoenix community through community-based art, science, and technology events.
One thing is certain, with Moriarty as the catalyst of Sitewire's new social media strategy and offerings, expect to continue seeing great things from the company in the months to come.
