Content is King. Introducing the Queen.

This past week, Binary Pulse was pleased to welcome Cara Stewart to the fold. As part of our increased emphasis on content marketing, we brought Cara on as director of content to help craft integrated campaigns centered on insightful, valuable content. Her technology, B2B and social media experience make her a tremendous asset to Binary Pulse and, more importantly, to our clients.

As she gets fully up to speed (which won’t take her long, I assure you), keep an eye out for her here on the blog where I, for one, look forward to her opinions and observations.

Here’s the official press release:

IRVINE, CA–(Marketwire – Mar 14, 2012) – Binary Pulse Technology Marketing today appointed Cara Stewart as its director of content.
