Innovative. Sarcastic. Dedicated.
These are all words we would use to describe our Vice President of Strategy, Eric Kokonas. After this week, we can add award-winner to the list.
Today, Dittoe PR is pleased to announce Eric has been selected to join the inaugural class of TechPoint’s Tech 25, a prestigious designation for 25 tech builders, creators and other individuals who are critical to building organizations in the local tech community, but very seldom get the recognition they deserve.
In true Eric fashion, his initial reaction to receiving the good news was filled with humility.
“Here I am, being acknowledged for an award that I never thought I had a chance at, and you know that’s not me
trying to be modest. I honestly didn’t think I would even be considered for this. But it really means a lot to me that you guys think I’m deserving of it.”
Eric will be recognized for his achievement at the 16th Annual Mira Awards on May 2 and featured on TechPoint.org prior to the awards ceremony.
As an agency that loves to support one another, we couldn’t be more proud of Eric. In his six years at Dittoe PR, Eric has worked diligently to secure powerful national media coverage for some of Indy’s biggest tech companies, most promising startups and other top marketing tech companies. We can say with certainty that Eric knows the tech media landscape better than anyone and consistently lands stories for clients in Mashable, TechCrunch, the New York Times, The Wall Street Journal and WIRED – just to name few.
In fact, his fervent fan base doesn’t stop within the walls of Dittoe PR. Taulbee Jackson, CEO of Rundown and former client of Eric’s, couldn’t say enough great things about his work ethic or efforts.
“Eric – you changed the course of Raidious, made the city of Indianapolis look amazing in the national spotlight, and you’ve made better lives for all of our employees and their families – along with influencing the thinking and approach of marketers across the globe. Eric made a mark on history, and the ripple effects will continue forever,” Taulbee said.
Congratulations, Eric! We can’t wait to cheer you on next month when you accept your award and watch you continue to help many of our state’s best and brightest tech companies achieve greatness through your tireless PR efforts. Whether you are developing a strategic PR plan, crafting targeted media pitches or cooking gourmet waffles for us, your dedication to your craft, our clients and Dittoe PR fully demonstrates why you are so deserving of this award.
