Jamie Tedford (Moderator)- Founder and CEO, Brand Networks

In 2007, with three kids, a mortgage and a looming recession, advertising executive and word-of-mouth marketing pioneer Jamie Tedford, left his cushy job to bootstrap Brand Networks. He partnered with Rochester-based software engineer and technology entrepreneur Mike Garsin with visions of creating a company that would use social software to help connect the world’s largest brands with the customers who like and will advocate for them, leading to more profitable, long-term relationships.  Our name is a nod to this mythical, enlightened state of transcendent customer relationships. Everything we do, software we build and people we hire have a singular focus on enabling clients to create and grow their own brand networks. Since then, Brand Networks has become a leading Facebook Preferred Marketing Developer and provider of social software and marketing services to global brands and agencies.

Prior to founding Brand Networks, Jamie was the SVP Media Innovation at Arnold Worldwide. Earlier in his career Jamie was on the management team of IPO-bound Student Advantage. Jamie is also a founding Board Member of the Word of Mouth Marketing Association (WOMMA). He is a frequent contributor to Marketing Daily, and his commentary on Social Media, Word of Mouth Marketing, and Advertising has been featured in the New York Times, Mashable, CNN and ABC News.
