Zach Katkin – President and CEO
“In the last few years we’ve seen a shift, from print or other conventional media, to the web. The Yellow Pages and radio are being replaced by Google and pay-per-click campaigns. Printed pamphlets and direct mailings are being supplemented with online e-newsletters due to the price advantages and reporting benefits they offer. A business with a strong web presence today is a business ready for the future.”
