Cabedge Design has lured Courtenay Rogers from her job as marketing coordinator at law firm Bone McAllester Norton to be its director of business development and account management. At Cabedge, which has been under the umbrella of Atiba since early this year, she will work alongside her brother and Creative Director Matthew Rogers. The duo had partnered in the past to run branding venture Primarily Rye.
“Courtenay exemplifies the profile of the perfect Cabedge employee,” said Paul Hickey, managing director of Cabedge Design LLC. “She brings multiple skills to the table at a high level. She’s a social media strategist, writer, project manager, communicator and connector of people. Her presence will help put Cabedge in a position to grow our business significantly while still servicing our clients at a high level and helping them grow theirs.”
Web design firm Cabedge has promoted two relatively new employees to creative director and marketing services director. The title of the former now belongs to Matthew Rogers, who joined the company in May and also founded his own shop, Primarily Rye. Playing point for Cabedge on digital marketing, organic search and social media is Allen Willis, who is on the right in our photo. He had worked at Cabedge parent company Atiba before moving over to Cabedge in March.
“We’re not big on titles here at Cabedge Design, as we’re mainly a organization that works as a team to get things done for our clients,” said Cabedge Managing Director Paul Hickey. “There’s always a ‘but’, and the exception here is the fact that we’re growing. As a strategic, creative alignment marketing firm, there is a demand from our clients to not only plan and build their core business functions, but also promotethem. We relish this opportunity."
WV Magic Web Design, LLC, a Nashville-based application development and Web-based programming company, has changed its name to DevDigital.
Founded in 2005, DevDigital builds custom products for its clients, including iOS and Android apps for smartphones and tablets (with more than a dozen apps developed), Web-based logistics management systems and website frameworks and designs. The company client list includes Premier Parking, Medical Ventures, Rascal Flatts, Jason Aldean, Trace Adkins, Tootsie’s Orchid Lounge, the Stage, SocialFlights and FriendsWhoShare.
“The name ‘DevDigital’ describes the work we do on behalf of our clients very well,” Peter Marcum, DevDigital co-owner, said in a release. “This change is an important step forward for our business.”
Originally established as WV Fiber, DevDigital has evolved into a company that can handle not only Web design but also software development, Web development and custom app development on multiple platforms. The 49-person company also administers the Nashville Facebook page, which focuses on news and happenings in the city and has attracted more than 100,000 fans.
Nashville Web design and programming firm Atiba has brought on board five employees of peer company Cabedge, including CEO Chris Blanz. Milt Capps has the details of the deal, which Atiba boss J.J. Rosen (pictured) says will boost his team's creative and user experience arsenal. And don't be surprised if Rosen makes more deals.
With Atiba's design, user-interface and strategy resources now expanded via the transplantation of DNA from Cabedge, Atiba has 46 employees, said Rosen. Atiba will make further selective buys as opportunities arise to deepen its talent pool or broaden offerings, Rosen added.
