We’re very pleased that Brian Solis joins the Altimeter Group as a Principle focused on business strategy, training, change management, metrics. Read Brian’s post, Flying to a Higher Altitude with Altimeter Group.
I’ve known Brian in the social business (it wasn’t called that, backthen) space now since 2006, in fact he came to an event I hosted at Hitachi, way back in 2006. Since then, we’ve become fast friends, our families dine together, and we’re physical neighbors in silicon valley just a few minutes away. Aside from being a long term friend, I’ve come to respect Brian for his immense raw energy and ability to communicate to thousands, if not millions of people using a variety of tools in new media, and his collection of books that I see on my client’s bookshelves on a regular basis. The man has amazing raw talent, there are few others that can do what he can.
We’re really honored to have Brian join us at our San Mateo HQ “The Hangar” and hope to see you there as we host community events. We really believe in investing on our team and staff, and are, we’re growing and hiring three analysts in Business Intelligence, Mobile, and Digital Media and Advertising. I hope you consider applying to join our growing family. If you’re an Altimeter client, feel free to talk to us how we can continue to serve you with our growing team, we’re pleased to add more value.
Lastly, as fate would have it we serendipitously were both in Las Vegas last night for separate client events and were able to toast.
