Westchester, NY (PRWEB) April 10, 2014
Westchester Digital Summit—a global technology summit named one of Forbes’ “Must-Attend Marketing Conference For Leaders in 2014”—continues to add exceptionally noteworthy names to its roster. Among the newest additions are reporter Chris Hansen and technology titans Jesse Redniss of Mass Relevance, Adam Ostrow of Mashable and David Berkowitz of Agency MRY.
“We are drawing from as many industries as possible, to maximize the value for our attendees. Everyone will walk away with easily executable ideas and a blue print to increase revenue through digital,” says event founder and Silverback Social CEO Chris Dessi. “These additions are just a few of the many speakers attendees can look forward to.” Dessi goes on to cite speakers from impressive companies such as LinkedIn, Facebook, ESPN, IBM, The Huffington Post, GE and Mastercard, among others; as well as prestigious non-profits like The Leukemia & Lymphoma Society (LLS).
Hansen is a famed reporter best known for his work on “To Catch a Predator.” After the show’s completion, he remained a member of the Dateline franchise with a revealing hidden camera series titled “The Hansen Files.” Hansen is celebrated for his compelling investigative reporting on topics that vary from politics to small business practices. Amongst his many achievements, Hansen is the recipient of eight Emmys for investigative reporting, outstanding coverage of a news story and outstanding coverage of breaking news.
Redniss currently holds the title of chief strategy officer at Mass Relevance— recently making headlines for its merger with Spreadfast. This Emmy-nominated entertainment executive has been a key thought leader for multi-screen, digital brand building, creative development and marketing for the past 14 years. Redniss was responsible for USA Networks early adoption of multi-screen broadcast-- prior even to the coining of the term “second screen.” In recognition of his distinguished work, Multichannel News named Redniss one of their ’40 under 40’ to watch in the digital world.
Ostrow joined Mashable at its infancy in 2007 when he was brought on by Mashable founder Peter Cashmore as the publication’s first Editor-in-Chief. To date, his contributions stand at over 2,500 articles reporting on marketing trends, technology and social media. Ostrow served as the brains behind the introduction of Mashable’s video program. He is an experienced public speaker, frequenting industry events and conferences such as SXSW, Digitas NewFront , Consumer Electronics Show and Cannes Lions. “After the Final Status Update,” Ostrow’s TED Talk on the sustained existence of social media profiles belonging to the deceased has gained tremendous popularity, garnering nearly one million views.
As chief marketing officer at Agency MRY, Berkowitz spearheads marketing operations, directs the agency’s communications and gains visibility for clients. Among his most notable clients are Visa, Johnson & Johnson and Coca-Cola. Berkowitz is a contributing editor to such prestigious outlets as MediaPost, Ad Age and Mashable along with his blog MarketersStudio.com.
