are often forced to hire industry newbies to keep up with the influx of

dot-com business - seasoned gray-hairs are a hot commodity. Fineman

Associates has thus scored a major hiring coup with the addition of

55-year-old PR veteran Gary Quackenbush.



Quackenbush, who previously served as VP and GM of Rourke & Company

(since acquired by Manning Selvage & Lee), was tapped to manage

Fineman’s SelfCare.com, CyberBills, TeamToolz and Impact accounts, as

well as to offer counsel to other hi-tech clients.



Boasting more than 35 years of experience in journalism and Silicon

Valley PR, Quackenbush also served as a VP for both The Benjamin Group

in Campbell, CA and Neale-May & Partners in Palo Alto. Prior to arriving

at Fineman, which counts Foster Farms, Fogdog.com, Law.com and Diamond

of California among its big-name clients, Quackenbush ran his own PR

consulting shop.
