You may have noticed a new voice on eastwikkers this past week…welcome Joel Postman! Joel comes to Eastwick as our new EVP of Emerging Media from his most recent stint at HP as head of executive communications for the Technology Solutions Group. He has been involved in HP's executive blogging program for almost two years, and personally launched what is widely thought to be the industry's first podcast by a senior tech executive, Nora Denzel's Agility Radio. Stephen Shankland recognized stodgy old HP for having beat Sun and Jonathan Schwartz to the punch in this hot new medium. http://news.com.com/2061-10808_3-5697155.html
One of Joel’s claims to fame was his four year stint as senior speechwriter and executive communications manager to Sun Chairman and CEO, Scott McNealy. He has personally written close to 1000 CEO speeches, Q&As, briefings, presentations, video and webcast scripts, company-wide e-mails, editorials, and other projects for Scott. And is very proud of the Dukie Award that sits on his desk here at Eastwick. http://java.com/en/dukeszone/dukeschoice.jsp Apparently, he’s the only non-developer to ever get one! Joel’s first blog http://www.hydeparkassociates.com/blog for executive communicators and speakers was well read and well thought of. His new blog, www.techneuroti.com I’m sure will also attract a loyal following.
We are thrilled to have Joel take over from where Giovanni left off…driving the agency’s social media consciousness as well as programs. As Joel has already alluded to…you’ll be hearing more from him both here on eastwikkers as well as his own blog.
Once again…welcome aboard.
