I’ve got news.
Next week will be my last at Veritas. On February 2, I’m embarking on a new adventure as senior director of social media and digital communications at Rogers Communications. I’ll be building a new team that will develop a social media strategy for the cable, wireless and media company. It’s far too early to get into specifics, but suffice to say that I’m very excited about the challenge ahead.
At the same time, I can’t help but feeling sad about leaving Veritas. This is a tremendous organization with a terrific group of public relations and social media experts. And com.motion (the social media division I helped build and launch 14 months ago) is really starting to take off, as witnessed by our recent expansion into the United States. There are a ton of cool social media campaigns in com.motion’s pipeline and I look forward to seeing them break over the next few months.
So a fond farewell to my friends at Veritas/com.motion and an enthusiastic hello to my new colleagues at Rogers.

Congrats Keith, all the best at your new and exciting gig!
Congrats on the change, Keith. Looking forward to more of your content as you transition into the team at Rogers.
Congrats, I started 2.5 weeks ago as Director, Web and Online Marketing for Rogers Media. We should definitely connect as my role is around audience development and social media is definitely a component of that.
Wow! Congratulations Keith. It’s been great working with you in your current role at Veritas com.motion. I’m sure you’ll be an asset to Rogers. Best of luck in your new roll.
Thanks for the well wishes Chris and Chris.
Corby – thanks for reaching out. Let’s find a time to meet early next month.
Thanks Eden. And despite my change in roles, I’m still happy to be part of the Podcamp panel.
I’d congratulate you, but that would look too much like I was trying to curry favour with you as a potential client… Oh, what the heck. Congratulations on the new gig. May your telephone support never fail you. 🙂
Sounds exciting, Keith! All the best to you in your new role.
Congrats on the new gig. I look forward to seeing the new changes at Rogers!
Congratulations, Keith! Sounds like a great new challenge.
Congrats Keith! That is great news!
Ha! I expected you to continue as moderator for the panel. It will be all the more interesting especially because it should free you up to ask the hard-hitting questions.
Your post-G&M careeer has certainly been exciting. Congrats on the new gig.
Sounds like an exciting opportunity with a company that needs to keep a handle on its online reputation. Best of luck to you.
Thanks for the kind words Joe, Donna, Rex, Martin, Andrew, Mark and Dave! I expect my honeymoon to be shorter than Obama’s so I’ll take the well wishes while they last. 🙂
Congrats Keith – what a move! A huge opportunity.
Look forward to connecting again at mesh.
Looking forward to seeing where you steer Rogers in the digital world. (Hate to call it “new” media. New-ish media?) Great to see other ex G&Mers doing so well.
Congratulations. Speaking as somebody who has recently cut off all the Rogers services that I could cut off – no iPhone elsewhere otherwise the cellular contract would have gone too – I will be watching your adventures with interest.
Rogers, in my personal opinion, is a deeply flawed company. Nickel and diming appears to be an official policy.
Before I will believe that Rogers is a company worth doing business with, the company itself will need to convince me that they are working for me, not against me.
I thought the exact same thing. How do you congratulate someone moving to dark side?
