DAM Guru Program has added Carol Thomas-Knipes and David Diamond to its management team. Carol is a DAM and information professional with more than 20 years’ experience in the industry. She co-organizes the NYC DAM Meetup. David designed DAM Guru Program for Picturepark and authored the books, DAM Survival Guide and Metadata for Content Management. Carol and David join original program manager, Ben Smidt, to form the program’s new management team.
Ben will continue to serve as Operations Manager, as he has done since the program’s launch. Carol will be the program’s Content Manager, and David will serve as Program Director.
The larger team will be able to better handle the program’s rapid membership growth, while introducing new member services that were not previously possible, due to resource limitations.
The addition of the new managers was made possible by an increase of investment by DAM Guru Program creator and benefactor, Picturepark. You can read the official press release on the Picturepark website.
