It's been a while since I posted to this "Unsung Heros" column at XBiz.
At times, looking for someone to feature here, I feel like Diogenes, searching the hills of Rome for the last honest man.
But, here we go......
I found another one!
Liam of PinkVisual
We all know of PinkVisual through the adept PR and B2B community efforts by Allison Vivas and Quentin at that wonderful production and marketing company. But, over the past 6 months I found out who makes the trains run on time there: Liam.
When I first met Liam at an XBiz event a few years ago, I thought I was bumping into an extra from the movie "Rob Roy".
He is too tall. He is lanky. He has "that Celtic look in his eye" that makes me shiver!
But, over the past 2 years, I have discovered that this Liam man, working WAY behind the curtain at PinkVisual is probably the most hard working and honest persons I have seen in adult in the past 10 years.
Integrating with PV Mobile was always a challenge, but I personally watched Liam direct his team 24x7 for months on end to make sure things were working. If you are new to the industry, you can not even imagine how rare that is these days.
My hat is off to Liam at PinkVisual. He is kind, gentle, articulate, intelligent, humorous, professional and diligent. You just don't find that combination these days, and, under the helm of Allison Vivas, PinkVisual is a force or nature and a force to contend with for such Borg/gobblers as Manwin (who's ass they kicked and, oddly, rehabilitated for the greater good. Davey and Goliath, anyone?)
So, in closing...... Liam is simply one of the current BTS players that I trust. Pink Visual is, well (and I am sure to get shit for this), "the little engine that could!" and Liam is the guy stoking the engines there.
