First on PRNewser: Attention partner Colin Nagy is now Colin the Barbarian. Nagy accepted the newly-created role of executive director of earned/social media at the Barbarian Group. He will begin building the new department this Monday to focus on word-of-mouth, branded content and social media strategy for Barbarian’s clients.
Nagy has worked with partner and founder Curtis Hougland to build the firm over the past several years while focusing on media clients such as The Daily Beast and Newsweek. The Boston-based Barbarian Group is bigger than attention at roughly 75 employees.
Our colleagues at AgencySpy reported a small round of layoffs at Barbarian last month.
