SAN FRANCISCO: Emily Swanson has joined MediaLive International as director of PR following the company?s move from Los Angeles to the Bay Area. Swanson takes over for VP of PR Jane Welch, who did not want to make the move northward.
MediaLive is the technology trade show company that emerged from the bankruptcy of Key3Media. MediaLive produces shows including Comdex and Seybold.
?This is one of the most exciting places to be,? said Swanson, who came aboard from FitzGerald Communications, MediaLive?s agency of record. ?This is one of the great brands that has the ability to influence technology. I?m really looking forward to helping reposition the company in an industry that supports the technology industry.?
To help her do that, Swanson said she is looking to hire more staff, expanding her team from four to seven.
