Brad Pirman as CIO
.
SANTA BARBARA, Calif., Oct. 16, 2007—CEO Kelly Foy of Elite Meetings International (EMI) announced today the addition of Bradley Pirman to EMI’s growing team. Pirman joins the company as chief information officer, in charge of business and product development for the company.

Pirman’s extensive experience in business development includes expertise in software and multimedia development, a resource that Foy says will be key in the months ahead. According to Foy, Pirman will be instrumental in the launch of EliteMeetings.net v.2, a redesigned and newly enhanced version of the company’s planning database of high-end hotels and resorts for meetings. He will also play a key role in the much-anticipated debut of EliteMeetings.tv slated for 2008. 

Along with developing many more useful tools for corporate planners, Foy says, “Brad’s contributions will surely result in additional exposure for both our company and the elite properties we endorse,” he says. 

“It’s an exciting time to join the company,” Pirman says. “I’m eager to apply my skills to the wide array of cutting-edge products we’ve got planned for development over the next few months. I look forward to contributing to the increased success of such a dynamic and innovative company,” he adds.

Along with the relaunch of EliteMeetings.net and the debut of EliteMeetings.tv, the company reports plans for two new editions of Elite Meetings magazine, the first covering Latin America’s luxury properties, the second covering Europe’s.
