Buzz Media Solutions Relocates to Downtown Schenectady Citing Recent Major Economic Investments
(Schenectady, NY) Buzz Media Solutions announced the firm has recently relocated to Schenectady, New York. Founded in 2009, the marketing and communications firm has seen a steady growth and expansion of its products and services and plans on making additional hires in 2014.
The firm’s partners, Susan Bardack and Jeff Goronkin see plenty of potential in Schenectady. Bardack said, “We evaluated locations all around the region for our growing company and quickly realized there were no full-service firms located in the heart of Schenectady. The city has been steadily improving the downtown business district and we aspired to be part of the action. We view this as a tremendous opportunity for Buzz Media Solutions.”
The firm is no stranger to the area. Over the past four to five years they have worked with clients such as Brown School, the law firm of Higgins, Roberts & Suprunowicz, PC and other Schenectady based businesses. Patti Vitali, head of school at Brown School, which is located in that region, said, “We have enjoyed our relationship with Buzz Media Solutions and are excited about what they will bring to further enhance this area.”
Buzz Media Solutions offers communications and marketing services to a variety of companies in upstate, New York. The firm is growing and the partners believe it is important to be located in an area that supports their employees. Goronkin said, “While our clients are scattered around the Capital Region, Schenectady has a vibrant downtown. We are inspired that some strong tech companies and start-ups are choosing to locate here. We also have some of the best restaurants, coffee shops and entertainment in the area. Bardack, who is also the president of the Empire State Youth Orchestras, said, “Schenectady has become a driving force in delivering quality arts and entertainment to the people of the Capital Region and beyond. It’s exciting for our company to be located in this thriving downtown area.”
Prior to deciding on their move to Schenectady, the team at Buzz Media Solutions met the partners at Migrate America, a business hub located at 411 State Street to learn more about their services. Migrate America leases office space and provides valuable business support such as human resource services and shared facilities. Ryan Van Amburgh, director of corporate services at Migrate America said, “Ideally, we target companies for inclusion into our facility that can offer services and creative solutions to other businesses who share this location. Buzz Media Solutions is a natural fit.” The firm signed a lease and moved into their office on January 1, 2014.
Buzz Media Solutions works with their clients to develop marketing plans that are in line with their clients’ strategic goals and objectives. They also provide the talent to execute them. These plans can include services such as website development, branding and the creation of original content and public relations services. The firm includes three full-time employees, four part- time employees and is developing an internship program to help provide experience to students interested in pursuing a career in communications and marketing. The firm is planning on at least two additional full-time hires by the end of 2014.
The founders believe creative companies need creative spaces. Buzz Media Solutions has designed their modest-sized State Street office that overlooks Proctors, Aperitivo and the Bowtie Cinemas with cost-effective eye pleasing form and function. An entire area has been transformed into what they call the “creative wall” where the team can work with clients to map out their thoughts, develop novel strategies and come up with creative content. Goronkin said, “We placed a large sectional couch in this area to make people feel comfortable and encourage them to think freely and creatively. We also installed hanging infinity lights with programmable soft colored LED lighting.” A ribbon cutting will be held at the office of Buzz Media Solutions on Thursday, January 30th during the firm’s open house from 4:00 to 6:00. The event is open to the public and all are welcome to join.

Guests are invited to network and sign the firm’s “creative wall” which will be shared on Facebook, tweeted on Twitter and posted on LinkedIn.
