Combined expertise will further strengthen firm's ability to guide clients through the rapidly changing communications landscape.
- Boulder, CO (1888PressRelease) August 11, 2010 - Marie Rotter, one of Colorado's top communications professionals and a sought-after social media expert, has joined Metzger Associates, a communications firm with a national reputation for the strategic integration of traditional and social communications programs.
"I've been impressed with the robust work that John Metzger, Doyle Albee and the team at Metzger have been doing. They have been able to stay on top of where conversations are moving and engaging people in some really creative ways. When the opportunity came up to work for them, it was an easy decision," said Rotter.
Rotter will work as an account director, helping clients maximize their effectiveness in today's online conversations through traditional public relations, blogging, podcasting and through social media sites such as Facebook and Twitter.
Previously, Rotter worked as a consultant for Xcel Energy, where she was instrumental in driving the corporation's social media effort and raising public awareness of environmental and energy-efficiency programs.
"The Internet has not only changed how we access information, but how we interact with each other and the brands we buy," said Albee, president of Metzger Associates. "Our number one job is to make sure our clients-and the communications strategies we put in place for them-are reaching their audiences in the most effective and powerful way possible. Traditional media tactics are still important, but it's critical to combine them with new social media techniques. Marie has a great background as a former journalist and long-time PR practitioner, as well as a deep resume in web communications development. We are looking forward to offering our combined expertise to clients."
