Brand Networks receives Facebook designation

Rochester Business Journal
September 21, 2012

Facebook Inc. on Thursday awarded 12 social media marketing service providers its new Strategic Preferred Marketing Developer designation. One of those companies was Brand Networks Inc., which is based in Boston but has the majority of its employees in Rochester.

Facebook said the designation will give the companies input on and early access to its marketing products. The list includes companies such as Adobe Systems Inc. and Inc.

The distinction will help Brand Networks and the other 11 companies stand out from Facebook’s directory of preferred marketing developers, which contains 300 companies.

Brand Networks was founded in 2007 by CEO Jamie Tedford and Chief Technology Officer Mike Garsin. The company’s clients include American Express Co., Monster Worldwide Inc. and JetBlue Airways Corp. Garsin heads up the company’s Rochester office. More than half of Brand Networks approximately 70 employees work in Rochester.
