According to Buzzsaw.com VP of marketing Chris Bradshaw, ’account

turnover’ and a ’lack of chemistry’ prompted an agency review earlier

this spring.



Cunningham elected not to participate in the pitch.



Weber’s combined Bay Area team (San Francisco and Palo Alto) triumphed

over finalists Capstone Communications and BSMG for a variety of

reasons, according to Bradshaw.



’There was not one single thing that stood out, but Weber came with a

great reputation, and we were impressed with the actual team members who

would be working on our business,’ he explained. ’Also, as an Internet

company, we were also very impressed with Weber’s technological

capabilities.’



Launched in November 1999 as a spin-off from Autodesk, San

Francisco-based Buzzsaw.com recently secured dollars 75 million in its

second round of funding. It is the second new company to join the

Weber/Bay Area client roster this month. The agency also recently landed

eOnline, a Cupertino-based enterprise applications service provider.
