UPDATED 1/2/02 -- Dinger leaving CEO post at Weberize

Updated January 2, 2002 -- Jason Dinger, a co-founder of Weberize, has been named vice president of systems and planning at the Baptist Hospital unit of St. Thomas/Baptist, according to a press release. NashvillePost.com reported last week that he was giving up his CEO post at Weberize to join the health system.


Jason Dinger, a co-founder of Cummins Station-based Weberize, is leaving his chief executive post with the prominent Web development firm to assume duties at another local organization.

Numerous calls to Dinger over the past 10 days have not been returned. NashvillePost.com has been told that his new position is affiliated with the merging St. Thomas-Baptist health care systems, but a hospital official contacted by NashvillePost.com said he did not know that to be the case.

Aaron White, another Weberize co-founder who has been chief operating officer for the past three years, has been named president. White is a Vanderbilt University graduate who worked for SunTrust Banks prior to the formation of Weberize.

White said that Dinger will continue to serve as chairman and will retain his equity interest in the firm.

Weberize, which designs websites and helps companies formulate their online strategies, has a local staff of 37 people. It opened a Cairo, Egypt office in 2000, but White says that there is little connection now between the local Weberize office and the Egypt office except for the use of the same name.

Among Weberize’s clients are Caterpillar Financial, American Healthways and AIM Healthcare.

Public relations efforts for Weberize now involve Lovell Communications. The firm had used Logic Media Group since it inception three years ago. Both Weberize and Logic Media received capital from eConception, an Internet incubator that ceased making new investments last year.

Separately, Weberize has named former Qwest Digital Media and CitySearch veteran Hannah Paramore to be its vice president of sales and marketing.
