SocialRadius is the latest evolution in hybrid public relations/digital media companies from serial entrepreneur Michael Terpin, who previously created one of the nation’s earliest Internet-focused PR firms in the early 1990s, Terpin Communications as well as the first large-scale, Internet-based press release distribution service, Marketwire. SocialRadius is headquartered in Las Vegas, Nevada, with administrative offices in Santa Monica, California, and satellite offices in San Francisco and New York City.
Michael Terpin began SocialRadius in 2007, the latest chapter in a 25-year career in public relations, Internet marketing and digital innovation. A serial entrepreneur, he has been frequently written about as a pioneer in online PR and marketing, newswire distribution and social media/Web 2.0 marketing. His most recent venture is SocialRadius, a full-service social media marketing firm.
Michael has been a frequent speaker at leading technology and marketing conferences, including Ad:Tech, CES, E3, European Technology Roundtable (ETRE), Frost & Sullivan Sales & Marketing Conference, NAB, Public Relations Society of America (PRSA), Red Herring, Southern California Software Council and VNU Digital Media. He has been profiled in PRWeek and O’Dwyer’s PR Report, and has been a guest columnist for O’Dwyer’s PR Daily. Terpin is the only PR executive to be twice named to the Los Angeles Business Journal’s list of the most influential technology leaders. He was a finalist in the 2000 Ernst & Young Entrepreneur of the Year Award.
Terpin also founded Marketwire, one of the world’s largest and most comprehensive international newswires. Originally known as Internet Wire, Marketwire was acquired in April 2006 by Toronto-based media company CCN Matthews, and is now owned by OMERS Capital Partners, the private equity arm of a $41 billion pension fund. Marketwire employs more than 200 people and has annual revenues of more than $70 million, with offices in 12 cities. Marketwire serves more than 6,000 clients, including Bayer, HP, IBM, Merck, Symantec and Wal-Mart.
