Schenectady (May 14, 2014) – Buzz Media Solutions, a full service public relations firm, has hired Marguerite Pearson, director of client relations, and Cat Calsolaro, communications specialist, to help meet the needs of the firm’s growing client base.
Buzz Media Solutions Co-Founder and CEO Susan Bardack said,
“We are excited to have someone with Marguerite’s extensive marketing and communications background, as well as community connections, join our team in the delivery of great customer service.”
For the past 15 years, Pearson was a familiar face as spokesperson and director of communications for the Animal Protective Foundation of Schenectady. In that capacity, she was responsible for communications, fundraising and outreach functions, including media relations, website and social media management, fundraising appeals and special events, including the Fireplug 500 Walk for Animals and Tails by Twilight Gala. She was also instrumental in the development of the Foundation’s humane education and volunteer programs and outreach efforts.
Prior to joining the Foundation, she worked with the former United Way of Northeastern New York and Schenectady County Community College in marketing and communications capacities. She is also a licensed veterinary technician and remains connected to the region’s animal welfare community.
According to Pearson,
“I’m honored and excited to join Susan and her team in the delivery of top-notch communications services. Buzz is noted for its personalized and attentive client services and my goal is to continue to help grow and enhance what they already do so well.”
Buzz Media Solutions also welcomes Cat Calsolaro to the firm’s talented team as a communications specialist.
Bardack added, “We are excited to have Cat join our team. She has a positive attitude and excellent communications skills that will allow her to excel in her new role. We also see her as a leader who has much to contribute.”
Calsolaro is a native of Albany, New York and a graduate of Albany High School. She attended Boston University where she received a bachelor’s degree in journalism with a minor in anthropology in May 2013.
In her final two years at Boston University, Calsolaro worked as a sports correspondent for The Boston Globe. Her primary beats included high school girls’ lacrosse and girls’ soccer, but she covered a variety of sporting events from the state football playoffs to the Boston Athletic Association’s annual 10k race.
Calsolaro is excited to transition into marketing and communications as she embarks on her post-college career. Calsolaro said,
“I believe my writing background and media experience will help the Buzz Media Solutions team when it comes to working with their clients. I look forward to connecting with those clients and to the Capital Region business community.”
