Entertainment Distributor Hannover House (http://www.HannoverHouse.com) hired former local news journalist Richard Dean Prudenti as the company's new Director of Marketing and Publicity, a position Hannover House created in response to a large volume of project titles slated for release in the next year.
Prudenti will oversee distribution of information on Hannover titles and campaigns to media outlets and customers as he works primarily from the company's Springdale office, warehouse and distribution center at 1428 Chester St.
Hannover House is the releasing label for Truman Press, Inc., which is the corporate entity recently acquired by Target Development Group, Inc. (TDGI.PK). Prudenti serves a middle-management role and reports directly to Truman Press CEO Eric Parkinson. Strategic relationships with suppliers representing multiple titles will be announced in the coming weeks, collectively providing Hannover and Target Development Group with more than 30 titles for release during 2010.
Prudenti is an ambitious young professional who has worked as a news reporter in the media market for more than seven years, most recently with The Morning News of Northwest Arkansas, based in Springdale. His work has earned top honors from the Arkansas Press Association including the 2009 First Place News Story award and the 2008 First Place Coverage of Tourism.
"I am very pleased to work for Hannover House," Prudenti said. "I've had a successful run as a journalist in Northwest Arkansas for many years, and I have always enjoyed most those stories that lent themselves to promotional writing. I know what looks good. I know what sounds good. This new position at Hannover House is a great fit."
Hannover House's impressive slate of new films, videos and books for future release will supplement revenues from the company's library of 75 properties currently in release. Prudenti will write packaging copy and news releases, prepare sales announcement sheets, supervise third-party designers handling the creation of sales and packaging-related materials, and oversee any third-party publicity and public-relations firms engaged by Hannover on a title-specific or campaign-specific basis.
Prudenti will supervise publicity events throughout the country, including an upcoming "author-media tour" in New York City in support of the release of Barr McClellan's book, "Made in the USA," and a televised event in Washington, D.C. at the National Press Club in support of the same project.
