Fox Creating Social Media Empire

Picture 1-98
Within Toronto’s tech community, Maggie Fox is widely recognized for being one of the social media gurus. Her company, Social Media Group, has established itself as one of the leading consulting firms, highlighted by its relationship with Ford Motor Co.

With so much happening on the social media front, it is not surprising to see Maggie and SMG make a bold move by signing a letter of intent to purchase Washington-based Livingstone Communications. This will expand SMG to 20 people, and make it the “world’s largest independent social media marketing and communications firm”.

Geoff Livingston, CEO of Livingston Communications and author of Now Is Gone: Primer on New Media for Executives and Entrepreneurs, will become executive VP, Americas for SMG, and continue to head the Washington office. Social Media Group will also acquire the Buzz Bin blog (www.livingstonbuzz.com/blog) and the BlogPotomac conference.

Congrats, Maggie!
