List of Social Strategists (Vendor Side)

Spurred on by a discussion with Altimeter Group’s Jeremiah Owyang, I’m starting a list of social strategists on the vendor side.

By social strategist, I mean people who work for social media, advertising, public relations, digital, direct marketing, design, research or other creative agencies, and provide social media leadership, roadmap definition and governance for their firms’ clients; and directly influence their agency’s or clients’ spending on social technology vendors or services.

To get on the list:

  • Leave a comment below with a link to your public LinkedIn profile page (and your Twitter handle if you want that including);
  • The profile must indicate that social media is part of your full time role at the corporation;
  • You must work at an agency with more than 200 employees worldwide (will be verified via LinkedIn company profile);
  • Please be patient after leaving your comment whilst I verify it and add you to the list.

Sorry about the 200 employee limit, but I need to keep it manageable to begin with. I may end up lowering the limit, so check back regularly.

    • Hi Jared, I see LinkedIn puts your company at under 200 employees. Can you point me to another source that suggests otherwise?

  • Hi there, thanks for this great idea! I am the Managing Director of Bates141, WPP’s largest Asia-only network (1,500 people across Asia only). I oversea all our digital incubation projects across SEA. I also manage our Singapore office which has been transformed into a digital incubator. Unlike other ad agencies that just talk SM,we have hired full time and experienced online community managers, digital strategists and web designers. We also use prioritery social media monitoring and insights mining tools for our clients. In the last year alone, we have seen how social media has raddically changed our strategic thinking and the kind of ideas we develop for our clients. You can see an example of our work featured in Campaign Asia under the Ben & Jerry’s digital activation case study. best.

    • Hey Frederique. Thanks for taking the time to provide more information. Although your LinkedIn profile doesn’t indicate that social media is part of your full time role, I’ll give you the benefit of the doubt and add you to the list.
