2013-10-24 20:23:54 - Centel Media announces yet another wave of restructuring in upper level management. They've promised to uphold their quality in service despite recent changes.
On Thursday, September 26th, the leadership and management team of Centel Media announced the resignation of Danielle Steffenhagen as President and Chief Operations Officer. Steffenhagen oversaw day-to-day operations at the company, managed employees and acted as editor, among other duties. With her experience in journalism and management, she assisted Centel Media in building and maintaining a positive online reputation for each of its clients. Steffenhagen was a valuable member of the Centel Media team and will surely be an asset wherever she lands in the future. Stepping into the role of COO is Joseph Scarletti.
CEO Jack Cola remains the driving force behind Centel Media’s rise to the top of the online reputation management (ORM) industry. With his experience, leadership,
and vision, Mr. Cola continues to move the organization forward, and is planning to introduce a board of directors when he opens the Class C common stock to the public. A board may introduce a chairman position opposite Cola, meaning more changes in leadership could be on the way. Applications for the Class C common stock can be found at Centel Media’s investor relations website.
Effective immediately, Joseph Scarletti will serve as President and Chief Operations Officer, while Debra Wang claims the Search Engine Optimization Strategist position. Centel Media also added Graphic Artist Alfonso DiPompea and Social Media Advisor Gloria Stanza. Ariana Guarino will remain in her current position as VP and Chief Information Technology Officer.
Cola, in a recent interview, said that “it’s times like these that define what you’re truly made of.” He went on to say “the changes are difficult, but a critical turning point in our company’s history...although we are sad to see some of our old colleagues go, we are also looking forward to the new talent that will take over our vacant positions and help continue our winning ways.”
Centel Media dates back 40 years. Since its inception, the company has undergone a multitude of changes, but their resilient staff has never failed to adapt to the challenges set before them. Under such drastic changes, time will tell if Centel Media can continue that trend and remain as the top-rated ORM firm. If history has a say, Jack Cola will keep the company afloat and overcome the troubled waters that come with a growing business.
