Doug Haslam Joins Voce Communications

Doug Haslam has joined Voce Communications as Supervisor in the agency’s social media focused Voce Connect division.

In a phone interview today, Haslam he said he made the move to focus more on social media as opposed to traditional PR.

“I’ve really had an interest in that,” he said. “There is a lot of demand out there and now is the time to really grab a position in that area. Nothing against traditional PR but to be on the vanguard of things has been on my mind for a while.”

Voce Communications counts eBay, NetApp and PlayStation as clients. The agency also recently won Yahoo consumer PR agency of record duties as part of a combined team with Porter Novelli.
