We have and are continuing to build a team that understands how to leverage technology to deliver creative campaigns that drive substantial results.
Austin, Texas (PRWEB) March 24, 2008
nFusion, a leader in digital-centric marketing, today announced the hiring of new team members and internal promotions that continue to build on their award winning team. nFusion's clients, both B2B and B2C companies, are looking for new ways to reach their customers in a growing and increasingly complicated digital world. This ever-changing environment makes it difficult for businesses to build teams with the expertise needed in all the new and upcoming mediums. nFusion continues to develop internal talent as well as recruit industry veterans in order to meet these new needs. These new team members bring with them over 30 years combined experience in the digital marketing industry.
Marketing to both businesses and consumers has become increasingly fragmented as both technology and new media play more important roles. This new level of complexity has fundamentally changed marketing on all levels. Consumers have more control and a much louder voice when it comes to their intake of messaging. The balance has shifted from the company deciding how to speak to its target customer, to customers having the ability to decide how and when they want to interact with the company's brand. Companies know they need to be in the mix, but do not know how, when or where, nor do they have the time to build their own teams fast enough.
For agencies to be successful in today's environment, they need to build teams that understand both the creative process and the technology that delivers that content to the consumer. "Technology has made marketing more challenging in that we now have to find ways of delivering creative across a broad spectrum that is consistently evolving," said Bill Parkes, Sr. V.P. / Media & Technology Services. "We have and are continuing to build a team that understands how to leverage technology to deliver creative campaigns that drive substantial results."
New employees on the technology and media team include:

While at Dell, Chris solidified his ability to develop repeatable business processes that in turn create a consistent and results-focused foundation for development.
