New York, NY, August 21, 2013 --(PR.com
)-- In what has already been an amazing year for industry-leading online reputation management firm Centel Media, the company has announced yet another massive milestone--the relocation of its corporate headquarters to 475 Prospect Avenue, West Orange, New Jersey 07052 in Prospect Plaza South. The company has deep roots in the area, having been previously located in the midtown section of nearby New York City. While the offices in New York still handle sales, inbound sales are now routed to West Orange. With its move to New Jersey, Centel Media 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 Centel Media sustained 400 percent growth and made strides towards completing its goal of hiring 200 new employees in the New York City area.
The relocation of Centel Media's corporate office to West Orange marks the second time this year the company has set up shop. In July, Centel Media opened the doors of its full-time sales and recruiting office, a milestone inaugurated with an open house and a call for applications, attracting the top local sales talents. In fact, company president and chief operations officer Danielle Steffenhagen looks at the move as a way for the company to achieve 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 New Jersey area," Steffenhagen affirmed. "We are well on track toward meeting that goal, having already expanded our sales staff considerably."
With newly appointed President and COO Danielle Steffenhagen leading Centel Media, the company directed its attention at the local talent pool that the Northern New Jersey market can offer. Steffenhagen's vision was to better connect Centel Media to this lucrative market. Until the transition is complete, staff from the New York location will provide assistance training new employees at the West Orange location.
This transition comes on the heels of what have already been a busy few months for Centel Media. The company has not only expanded its sales team, but has also welcomed some significant and well-established people into corporate leadership positions. Foremost among them is Richard Brown, who recently signed on as the company's Senior Vice President of Marketing and Media Relations. As a veteran of the marketing sector, Brown brings a vast amount of knowledge with him to Centel Media. He now supervises both Centel Media's campaign strategy as well as its National Accounts division.
There have been other beneficial additions to the Centel Media Board of Advisors as well. This includes luminaries from the fields of online reputation management, online marketing and government relations. Darrin Governo, former consultant for Google AdWords, along with Rasha Hawkins, former senior managing partner of QuestContinental.com joined the Board of Advisors in May. Also new to the team is Matthew Shaffer, influential blogger and online journalist pioneer whose works are already garnering a considerable amount of attention.
Thus far, in 2013, Centel Media has sustained 400 percent growth--in every month of the year, the company has set a new sales record. This is partially due to the influx of new sales talents, but also because of the continued growth of the company's National Accounts division. Centel Media's client list continues to expand, including both government bodies and Fortune 100 brands.
Centel Media continues to receive a multitude of national press due to the copious amount of articles receiving attention regarding online reputation management, as well as the grand achievements made in the last couple of months. “Our company is growing dramatically and leading the online reputation management industry further forward--our move to West Orange is the a strategic step in taking that growth to the next level."
Centel Media is widely heralded as the foremost online reputation company in the world. The firm was originally launched in 1980 as a public relations firm, but now provides tools and strategies for those wishing to seize control of their online reputation. After several years of publishing print press releases, Centel Media employees began publishing these releases online to improve reach and to better assist its clients. More recently, the company took that vision and expanded it. With its newest management, Centel Media offers a vast list of online reputation monitoring and defense services to individuals and brands alike. Centel Media is known for its standard-setting technologies as well as its proprietary strategies. The company's client list includes government bodies, noteworthy politicians, Fortune 100 companies, small businesses, doctors, dentists, lawyers, and private citizens.
