Proof Digital Media, a digital marketing and communications firm, announced on Wednesday that it has hired Internet strategist B.L. Ochman.

Ochman, who has been helping major corporations integrate social media into their marketing since 1995, is a long-time leader in the social media space. She will report to Proof Digital CEO Jay Leveton and be tasked with helping the agency become a leading digital firm. Ochman is crowdsourcing her new title on her blog where she also explains her decision to join Proof Digital.

"Clients are scrambling to incorporate social media into their marketing, and yet there is a dearth of consultants and agencies that actually walk the walk and have case studies to prove it. B.L., who brings both to the table, along with a huge amount of creativity and energy, will help Proof Digital expand its social media presence quickly," said Leveton.

Her company, whatsnextonline.com has coached corporations on social media strategy, and developed dynamic social media integration programs for Fortune 500 clients including IBM, McGraw-Hill, American Greetings, Ford Motors, Simon & Schuster, and Meijer.

"I've been running my own business for decades," Ochman said "However, it's clear that the climate and timing are right to join a major organization with the resources and talent to become the leading agency in the digital space. I look forward to being part of Proof Digital's growth, and to counseling the biggest companies in the world to help them navigate the sea change occurring in marketing and communications."

Ochman will continue writing her cutting edge blog about Internet marketing, What's Next Blog, (http://www.whatsnextblog.com). The blog is an Ad Age Power 150 blog, http://adage.com/power150/. She recently was cited as one of 25 of The Most Powerful and Influential Women in Social Media 2009 by the Immediate Influence Blog.

Ochman contributes to AdAge Digital Next Blog, Digiday Social, Businessweek Online, Social Media Today, and many others. She is the co-founder of the pet lovers' site Pawfun.com http://www.pawfun.com which she will continue to run.
