As part of Social Media Group’s continuing commitment to meet the needs of our evolving client base (and recognizing fully that one of the key things that differentiates us as more than “just” social media marketers or a social PR agency is our holistic approach to organizational change) I’m very pleased to let you know that Stewart Mader, author of Wikipatterns, has joined SMG as our Director of Enterprise Client Services and member of our management team.

As one might expect from his title, Stewart will be responsible for leading SMG’s Enterprise Services practice group and will work with clients like SAP, ICANN and others to help develop strategy as well as foster and manage the organizational change that is a core part of effective integration of both collaborative and social media tools inside and outside the enterprise.

For those who don’t know him, Stewart is an experienced content strategist and project manager, dynamic speaker to corporate audiences and conferences, author of two books, and editor of Future Changes, a widely-read blog on information design, content strategy, wikis, and collaboration that has been cited by The New Yorker, The Guardian (UK), CIO Magazine, Fast Company, InfoWorld, InformationWeek, and The New York Times. He’ll also be contributing regularly to the SMG blog.

Friends, please join us in welcoming Stewart to the SMG team!
