Telmetrics President Bill Dinan Elected LSA Chairman
April 15, 2013 | Contributed by: Neg Norton
At our annual conference this morning, I was pleased to announce the election of Bill Dinan, president of Telmetrics, as chairman of LSA’s board of directors.
Bill is our first chairman from a company other than a publisher or agency to lead our diverse membership of print, digital, mobile and social local search media.
I believe Bill’s election comes at a defining period for our industry. Bill’s expertise is in understanding the role analytics and research play in helping clients measure the performance of local search media. As LSA strengthens and broadens our own research and data metrics that we provide for our members, Bill’s guidance will be critical to our success.
Bill is an accomplished, media-focused executive with extensive experience working with SEM providers, mobile ad networks, local search publishers and agency partners to integrate call measurement solutions to support revenue growth. Since joining Telmetrics in 1998 and taking the leadership reins as president in 2009, Bill has played an integral role in establishing the company’s brand leadership in the local search industry and has led the company’s evolution to multi-media, leads-based measurement solutions. Bill has served for four years as a member of our board of directors.
LSA also elected Norm Hagarty, CEO and managing partner of DAC Group, vice chairman of the board, and elected Sharon Sweeney, president of Fairway Group, as secretary-treasurer. Additional director seats include: George Hanna, YP; Peter McDonald, SuperMedia; Alfred Mockett, Dex One; Jim Continenza, The Berry Company; Bob Gregerson, hibu; Chris Cummings, Marquette Group; Marc Tellier, Yellow Pages Group; and Neg Norton, LSA.
Please join me in congratulating Bill, Norm and Sharon.
