Mobile.. it’s not just another fad.. it’s a reunion!

Former research and industry dev Kathryn Koegel has re-teamed with clicker Jeff Montgomery (Chief Revenue Officer of Placecast — a location based mobile marketing company — for some research on mobile marketing for retailers. Hey, we hear mobile is the next big thing or so this webinar says it is…

Sounds magnetic..

Josh Shatkin-Margolis, who I remember from his updates at the daily meeting on EPS, now has his own re-targeting start-up, Magnetic.  Looks interesting.. they just raised some coin, but it took some actual hunting to lead me to their new domain name, http://magnetic.is.

A minor Performics reunion

Larry Adams has left Google, heading to a start-up with Stuart Frankel (former top-dog there).  Sad to see Larry go, but wish him luck in his new venture!  I’ll update more once they are more public..

Launching another Glenn

Andrew Glenn has been launched from Google, well, 100% voluntarily, to Group Commerce.  Who are they?  What are they?  Well, their web site looks pretty scant, but is on a .Mac site, which also tells me very little.

Update: Little did I realize that David Rosenblatt is Chairman and Jonty Kelt is CEO – nice!

Facebook needs to fix this please..

I logged in earlier today and got a note to re-connect with Steve Wolkoff.  Not sure how they need to avoid this.. but I’m sure they don’t want this happening over and over.

Chris Henger left, the press just learned..

Sadly, Chris decided to move on.. an offer too good to refuse, heading over to Catalina Marketing – he made TechCrunch, very impressive!   He told me in person in  November, I guess the press releases just got issued.  Anyway, good luck Chris!

Best comment on the post, Are these the same folks that put on the “Catalina Wine Mixer?”
