NEW YORK, NY -- (Marketwired) -- 06/18/13 -- In what has already been a banner year for industry-leading reputation management firm Reputation Changer, the company has announced still another massive milestone -- the relocation of its corporate headquarters to the city of Philadelphia. The company has deep roots in the area, and indeed, its corporate offices previously occupied space in nearby West Chester. With its move to Philly, Reputation Changer seeks to ingratiate itself further into the local business community, even as it continues to command national media attention; all of this follows a season in which Reputation Changer sustained 600 percent growth, was honored as a Red Herring Top 100 company, and made strides toward completing its goal of hiring 200 new employees in the Philadelphia area.
The relocation of Reputation Changer's corporate office to Philadelphia marks the second time this year in which the company has set up shop in Philly. In January, Reputation Changer opened the doors of its full-time sales and recruiting office, a milestone inaugurated with an open house and a call for applications from local sales talents. In fact, company president Michael Zammuto says that one of the primary reasons for moving Reputation Changer's operation to Philadelphia is so that the company can better avail itself of the local talent pool. "Philadelphia's market is rich in talent and in potential, something we have already seen in the many local sales professionals we've brought on board," says Zammuto. "We're excited about the ways in which this move will better connect us with that local talent market."
Tapping into Philly's talent pool will also help the company to stay on track toward meeting its ambitious 2013 hiring goals. "Our goal for 2013 is to add a total of 200 new jobs, most of them positions right here in the Philadelphia area," Zammuto affirms. "We are well on track toward meeting that goal, having already expanded our sales staff considerably."
It isn't just the access to the local talent pool that appeals to Zammuto; he says the move to Philadelphia will keep Reputation Changer better connected in general. "We are closer to the airport, and closer to the railways," he says. "We are closer to the heart of the city's business community, and closer to the public sector. The bottom line is that moving to Philadelphia gives our company an even more convenient and strategic position from which to oversee our operations -- locally, nationally, and internationally."
This transition comes on the heels of what have already been a busy few months for Reputation Changer. The company has not only expanded its sales team, but it has also added some significant new corporate leadership positions. Foremost among them is Mike Morsell, who recently signed on as the company's Senior Vice President of Campaign Strategy; a veteran of the technology sector, Morsell now supervises both ReputationChanger.com's campaign strategists as well as its National Accounts division.
New names have been added to the Reputation Changer Board of Advisors, as well -- including luminaries from the fields of online reputation management, online marketing, and government relations. Dean Cannon, former Speaker of the House of the State of Florida and leading political lobbyist, joined the Board of Advisors in May. Also new to the team is Zac Johnson, influential blogger and online marketing pioneer.
Thus far, in 2013, ReputationChanger.com has sustained 600 percent growth -- and in every month of the year, the company has set a new sales record. This is partially due to the influx of new Philly sales talents, but also because of the continued growth of the company's National Accounts division. Reputation Changer's client list continues to expand, including both government bodies and Fortune 100 brands.
Capping it all off is the continued receipt of much national press -- including a prestigious honor, bestowed on ReputationChanger.com just weeks ago. "Reputation Changer was named as one of Red Herring's Top 100 tech start-ups, an incredible list that has previously included Twitter, Google, Facebook, eBay, and more," Zammuto says. "In other words, our company is growing dramatically, leading the online reputation management industry further forward -- and our move to Philadelphia is the next strategic step in taking that growth to the next level."
The company can be accessed via the Reputation Changer Pinterest Board, or at reputationchanger.com.
Reputation Changer is widely heralded as the foremost online reputation company in the world. The firm was launched in 2009 by a team of online marketing professionals, whose goal was to provide tools and strategies for those wishing to seize control of their online reputation. The company remains true to that vision to this day, offering reputation monitoring and defense services to individuals and brands alike. ReputationChanger.com is known both for its standard-setting technologies as well as for its proprietary strategies; the company's client list includes government bodies, noteworthy politicians, Fortune 100 companies, small businesses, doctors, dentists, lawyers, and private citizens.
