1) Brian Solis, FutureWorks PR   PitchEngine was created by Jason Kintzler, a former journalist who sought to
                                 energize the process of writing and sharing press releases and company                    Tags
                                 information.                                                                              brian solis,
                                                                                                                           jason kintzle
                                 “The social media release is no longer an ‘if’ or ‘when.’ Thousands of SMRs are live
                                 and wild in the socialmediasphere and we’re going to continue to socialize the
                                 corporate newsroom to extend the importance, poignancy, and reach for any
                                 business with anything meaningful to share,” said Solis.


                                 "Brian is years ahead of everyone in terms of PR and corporate communications. If
                                 we're going to continue to lead the industry in new directions, Brian Solis is a key
                                 component to our efforts," said Kintzler.


                                 Both Solis and Kintzler are members of the IABC-driven social media workgroup and
                                 play a leadership role in proposing an industry standard for new media releases.
