It’s always fun when you get to work with someone you like, respect, and who is generally just a great human.
I’m incredibly excited today to announce that Jason Harris will be joining the Sysomos family as Senior Manager, Community and Evangelism.
I’ve known Jason for a few years now, mostly through our shared professional circles and many mutual friends in social and technology. And I had the pleasure of working with him just this past year as part of his recent work with Republic Publishing and the influencer programs they’ve built with Microsoft and Nokia.
Jason comes to us with a rich background in tech and community, which makes him the perfect fit to help Sysomos level up our community engagement and produce some outstanding content. Jason will also be out and about as a key member of our evangelism team, speaking at events, meeting with customers and prospects and representing their voice within the company, and sharing Sysomos’ exciting vision for the future with the industry.
You’ll all certainly be hearing more from him here on the blog as well, so stay tuned for that.
In today’s fast-moving technology landscape, community and evangelism are no longer just “nice to have” functions but essential components to a smart, engaged and innovative business. I couldn’t be more excited to add Jason’s smarts, personality and skills to our growing community team here at Sysomos.
He’s going to have to get used to visiting Canada occasionally in the winter (he’s based in lovely Oregon where it’s much warmer than Toronto this week), and we’ll get him loving poutine and toques soon enough.
Please join me in welcoming Jason, and if you’ll be at SXSW Interactive, don’t forget to register for his unofficial Mobile Meetup here.
More to come!
