Congratulations to PRSA members and Comet Branding partners Al Krueger and Sara Meaney, who were recently named to The Business Journal of Greater Milwaukee’s 40 under 40.

Here’s en excerpt from the article:

Comet Branding has built its business on social media, Krueger and Meaney said. At first, they used Twitter and other social networking sites as a way to market themselves at low cost. Now, their reputation as social media experts helps them land clients.

House of Harley-Davidson, Milwaukee, has hired Comet as a consultant as it creates a social media marketing plan. Owner John Schaller heard a presentation from Meaney and knew he wanted to hire her, said Sarah Maio, marketing manager.

“For us, social media is really slippery,” she said. “We know we need it, we know it’s important, but it’s changing so quickly that we also recognize we could use expert opinions and guidance.”

Meaney and Krueger and the whole Comet team are also recently coming off the success of organizing the PR + Social Media Summit held at Marquette University. The event included more than 350 attendees who heard a full day of presentations, including IBM Vice President of Marketing and Communications Timothy Blair and BlendTec Vice President of Marketing George Wright.

Congrats again to Al and Sara!
