This January we start our third year in business—in L.A. and Hong Kong!

We launched our Trufflepig Search division to help client companies find social media and digital communications, marketing and PR professionals below the executive level. We are proud to have served clients including GE, Gap and Coca-Cola/Japan out of our Hong Kong office, and AEG Live, AutoTrader.com, Forest Lawn and R&R Partners out of Los Angeles.

As the economy builds momentum in 2013, Trufflepig Search is here to help find your next great social media or digital communications team members.

We wish you a profitable new year, full of health, enjoyment, and digital happiness.

During our last HKSocial, we discussed the upcoming events during Social Media Week Hong Kong, which runs from February 13th-17th. HKSocial highlighted some of the events in the upcoming week with guest speakers involved in a variety of different social media oriented businesses.

Some of the events discussed at this Social Media Week Primer will deal with everything from dating on twitter (“Dwitter”) to the importance of photography in social media (“iPhonography”).  The events discussed in this HKSocial focus on the personal and social aspects of Twitter, Facebook, etc. as well as the business applications of social media.  The breadth of social media events in the upcoming week really showcases how Hong Kong is a hub for social media.

For anyone who was unable to attend this month’s HKSocial, or for anyone who would like to re-experience it, online videos of the event are located here.

This January marks our inaugural year in business, and we just wanted to say “thank you” as we wish you Happy New Year.

We launched our Trufflepig Search division to help client companies find social media and digital communications professionals below the executive level.  And we opened our office in Hong Kong–Trufflepig Search Ltd.– to serve client corporations in Asia.  Our clients include AutoTrader, GE, Gap, Huawei and Coca-Cola/Japan.

As the economy builds momentum in 2012, Trufflepig Search is here to help find your next great social media or digital communications team member in the United States or Asia.

We wish you a new year full of health, enjoyment, productivity and profitability.

Twestival 2011 LA is proud to support LA Team Mentoring on Thursday, March 24. Use hashtag #324 or @LATeamMentoring to join in on the conversation.

There has never been a more exciting time to be in public relations, advertising and marketing, thanks to the revolutionizing momentum of social media, online communications and creativity.  The sheer adventure of being at the beginning of a new frontier, a global transformation, a whole new way of looking at communication, it’s exhilarating.

Also it’s confusing, and corporations are wondering—who’s who and where’s where in this new world.  Who really knows what they are doing?  And are most corporate communications departments fumbling as they learn?  Can anyone afford to make mistakes as they learn?

On this threshold comes a new company, called Trufflepig Search, to recruit experienced communications and marketing professionals who are fluent in social media and savvy about how to harness the beast to drive the brand.   Trufflepig Search—we dig deep to unearth the best in social media.  Like the prized animal that can sense where the most delicious mushrooms grow and dig them up unharmed for consumption by people who appreciate the best, we at Trufflepig Search know how to find the best communicators and separate them from the rest.  We bring them to client corporations for consumption as full-time leaders and coaches—the key to corporate social media strategy that works.

With offices in Los Angeles and Hong Kong, Trufflepig Search will launch in January 2011, to serve the hungry consumer brand companies who desperately need strategic communicators who can navigate and capture social media for their brands.   Launched as a separate division of respected executive search firm Berkhemer Clayton, Trufflepig Search will capture the category.  Our goal is that inside three months, corporate communications executives will think Trufflepig when they need one or a team of social media pro’s.

The team-members we place will transform your company for the digital age.

“We dig deep to recruit the best in social media,” let us know what you think of this tagline on our Facebook page, Twitter, or join our LinkedIn group; comments, follows, and likes welcome. And look forward to our website launch in January 2011!
